Videoblogger Faces Prison

July 22nd, 2006 by Larry Smith

Friend of SMITH and bold young videoblogger Josh Wolf could be thrown in the clink for refusing to turn his video of an anti-corporate globalization protest in which he captured an altercation between protestors and SFPD—and a police car was vandalized. Anthony blogs about it on the Shooting War blog here. Keep tabs on the case at Josh’s blog.. And if you care about free speech and have the means to do so, donate a few bucks. If you can’t drop a few dollars his way, then spread the word—the power of the Net means that it’s not so far fetched to think that the kindness of strangers will yield a dude in deep dystopian doo-doo the 10-15K he needs to cover legal costs. (Tip o’ the blog to Anthony for bringing this to our attention.)
