The Revolution Will Be Televised » Please write letters to US Attorney Scott Schools:

osh has asked his supporters to write letters to the new US Attorney Scott Schools both email and snail mail. Phone calls and faxes are good, too. The best DOJ email address for him is his secretary’s: Please CC DOJ phone number is 415-436-7200.
Fax is 415-436-7234

Snail Mail Address: The “Honorable� Scott Schools
US Attorney’s Office, Northern District of California
450 Golden Gate Avenue, 11th Floor
San Francisco, California 94102-3495

Here are some points you might keep in mind for your letter:

1. Urge him to drop the case
2. Point out the assault upon civil liberties of free speech and free press
3. Mention that the police car in question suffered very minor damage (a broken tail light) and the punishment of Josh for filming at this event is totally disproportionate to any minor crimes he could have filmed from the location he was at during the protest
4. Let him know this sends a very harmful message to Americans and to the world about the state of press freedoms in the United States
5. Professional Journalist Groups who support him: two awards from Northern California Society of Professional Journalist, Reporters Without Borders, Committee to Protect Reporters, National Newspaper Guild

Let’s shake loose some movement on this case, It’s been too, too long already.
