The IWW General Defense Committee Local 6 is calling on people in Ottawa and Gatineau to donate to help pay the legal bills of Ottawa Panhandlers Union organizer Andrew Nellis. We’ve won the case: all charges were dropped. Andrew can once again walk freely in the city and continue his work of defending panhandlers from city and police harassment. But the legal bill is still there. Donations of $5, $10, $20 or $50 are most welcome.
Send your cheque or money order to “General Defense Committee”, PO Box 52003, 298 Dalhousie St., Ottawa, Ontario K1N 1S0. Any donations left over will go toward establishing a local defense fund for the Ottawa Panhandlers’ Union, which fights for its members rights every day.
