Dec. 18: Supporters, note takers, translators: please, be present at the Tristan Anderson case at J`lem District Court
Hello!

We are urging anyone who possibly can, to come to court for the Tristan Anderson case! 

Tristan is an international solidarity activist from California who was shot in the head at a demonstration in Ni`ilin in 2009.  This is a very important court case.  Tristan is our friend and he is very seriously disabled- paralyzed on almost half of his body and with very severe damage done to his brain.  He can not live independently anymore.  He`s doing much better than he was when we were still in Israel, but he needs constant care, more rehabilitation, and we need the army to pay for it.

Also, we need the army to answer for this.

Since it is easier for the State to attack our credibility than to address the issue of the shooting (which was a completely unprovoked attack), this is expected to be a real proper smear trial- less about the shooting of Tristan and more about Anarchists Against the Wall, the ISM, and anything controversial that can be dug up about Tristan and Gabby as individuals.

Please come support us in court!  It will be interesting!  And important.

COURT will be held at the DISTRICT COURT BUILDING IN JERUSALEM, beginning at 9:00 on the following dates:

-Sunday 18, December
with more dates to follow

Also, we are asking for volunteers who can be NOTE TAKERS and TRANSLATORS.  Court proceedings in general will be in Hebrew but testimony will be happening in Hebrew, Arabic, and English- depending who is on the witness stand.  We will need several note takers.  If you can help with any of these languages, please contact Gabby at the number below.
