As you may know because of earlier posts, we have a court date tomorrow regarding the injunction that the City is trying to file against us. We have a wonderful lawyer and are planning on going to court to fight against this injunction. If we win the construction stops and we stay on the land, and momentum around this issue will continue to grow. So we have an extremely important and urgent request. We are collecting as many possible letters of support, which we will submit to the judge as affidavits. These letters are covering a wide range of issues – from professors and experts writing about the legal and technical reasons why the HCBP should not proceed, to mothers who have brought their children to the site explaining the importance of keeping this land free of an industrial park, to neighbours writing about the special place in their hearts the site holds, to participants in the occupation explaining why this is such an important stand to make. Basically anyone and everyone is writing in.
We ask for your support in two ways:
1) We have to be in court for 10am tomorrow morning, in downtown
Guelph, and we first need our lawyer to notarize all these letters
(they have to be signed by you as well). We are hoping we can receive
all these letters by this evening. If you can bring them by the site
before this evening, that would be amazing. If you have access to a
fax machine, you can fax them to 519 836-4394. If you would like us
to pick them up from your house, we have several vehicles we can use
to come by your home. If you have any questions at all, please email
us at email@example.com.
2) If you can come to court for 10am tomorrow, please do! Help us
pack the courtroom and show the city how much support we have. The
location is downtown, at 74 Woolwich St., across from the River Run
Please please please, if you can help in any way, we would appreciate
it. Most importantly, the land, the old growth forest, the hanlon
creek, would all appreciate it. There is a lot at stake with
tomorrow’s court date.
