1. Trial starts in a week! (Info on schedule, housing and rides)
Yep, Scott’s trial starts in just a week. His last pre-trial hearing is next Monday, September 13th, at 9:00 a.m. at the Federal Courthouse, 131 E. Fourth St., in Davenport, IA. If all goes according to schedule, the trial itself will begin the following day.
*What: the United States vs. Scott DeMuth
*When: Tuesday, September 14th, 9:00 a.m.
*Where: Federal Courthouse, 131 E. Fourth St., Davenport, IA

We’d like to get as many people in court on these days as possible! The prosecution claims the trial could take three weeks, and we want to maintain a strong showing of support for Scott in the courtroom for as long as it lasts. If you are in the area or can make it down, even for just a few days, please consider coming out to show Scott he’s not alone, and to show the government that this abusive prosecution isn’t going unnoticed. If you need help finding a ride to or from Davenport, or finding housing while you’re there, email us at scottandcarrie@riseup.net.

2. We need another $3000 *this week*!
With trial looming, the need for funds is greater than ever. Scott’s defense team has estimated needing $10,000 minimum to cover basic costs of trial (this includes travel, lodging, expert witnesses, transcripts, and any number of other legal expenses), and in order to meet this need we have to raise at least another $3000 before the week is out! Please donate to Scott’s legal defense fund, and please ask your friends and comrades to do the same. Donations can be made via Paypal at this site, or by writing a check out to Coldsnap Legal Collective with EWOK! in the memo line, and sending it to:

5. 9/26: “Bold Native” Film Screening in Des Moines
“Bold Native” is a fiction feature film. Charlie Cranehill, an animal liberator wanted by the United States government for domestic terrorism, emerges from the underground to coordinate a nationwide action as his estranged CEO father tries to find him before the FBI does. The film simultaneously follows a young woman who works for an animal welfare organization fighting within the system to establish more humane treatment of farmed animals. From abolitionists to welfarists, Bold Native takes on the issue of modern animal use and exploitation from several angles within the context of a road movie adventure story.

*when: Sunday, September 26th @ 3pm (doors open at 2:30)
