      Sorry if you already subscribe to one of Josh's lists, but
      people should definately write letters in response to (and vlog/blog)
      the Chronicle column.

      FREE JOSH WOLF COALITION UPDATE
      February 28, 2007


      ::: TODAY! RESOLUTION IN SUPPORT OF JOSH GOES BEFORE THE SAN
      FRANCISCO DEMOCRATIC COUNTY CENTRAL COMMITTEE :::

      We need your help tonight in San Francisco!

      The San Francisco Democratic Central Committee will be voting on a
      resolution calling for Josh's release. We will need a very strong
      contingent of Josh supporters in the room and several people to
      provide public comment in support of the resolution.

      This is would be a very big victory for us and will essentially force
      Nancy Pelosi and Dianne Feinstein to take a position on Josh's case
      one way or the other as they are both members of the DCCC.

      Also, if it passes locally we have two DCCC members who want to take
      this resolution to state Democratic Party.

      To RSVP and for more information please contact julian.n.davis@...

      What: SF DCCC monthly meeting
      When: Wednesday, February 28
      Time: 7:00 PM
      Where: San Francisco Democratic County Central Committee Monthly Meeting
      State Building, 455 Golden Gate Ave., Milton Marks Auditorium, San Francisco


      ::: TODAY! WRITE A LETTER TO THE SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE :::

      The San Francisco Chronicle has provided regular coverage of Josh'
      case and it editors even called for his release in an editorial on
      August 3 of last year.
      http://tinyurl.com/hy87c

      However in yesterday's issue columnist Debra J. Saunders wrote a very
      poorly informed column on Josh's case and claimed that he is not a
      journalist despite the fact that virtually every major journalist
      organization and every major newspaper in the United States has called
      him a journalist.
      http://tinyurl.com/yqmowv

      Clearly her column does not represent the opinions of the Chronicle
      editors nor the majority of its readers. Please help us flood the
      Chronicle with letters today pointing out the many holes in Saunders'
      arguments and the irrelevance of many of her comments.

      For info on submitting letters to the Chronicle click on the link
      below and contact andy.blue@... for more information or help
      with your letter.

      ::: SEE JOSH ON PBS FRONTLINE :::

      PBS Frontline is airing an extraordinary four part series on the state
      of the press in the United States today. An interview with Josh was
      included in part 2 aired last week. You can watch the segment with
      Josh at this link:
      http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/newswar/view/15.html

      But consider watching the entire series as it sets Josh's case in the
      larger, frightening picture of the current state of press freedom in
      our country.
