Support Miller & Cooper

Hey Guys,

Here's the final word on The Newspaper Guild's efforts to raise awareness of the Matthew Cooper/ Judith Miller case. If you folks are also members of SPJ, the Los Angeles chapter will be participating in both the leafleting and the moments of silence at noon. If you're near downtown, please consider heading over to the courthouse to hand out leaflets; if you're elsewhere, take the two minutes to stand in silence for our colleagues who could be headed to jail.

Even if they don't go to jail tomorrow, the leaflet campaign will continue to raise awareness of the need for a national shield law to protect journalists. They're not asking much, so we should all get behind this.


From Vicki:

Tomorrow morning (July 6) at 11:30am until 1:00pm we will be leafleting in front of the U.S. Courthouse 312 North Spring St Los Angeles.

Cooper's notes are being turned over to the court in the morning - Miller will determine if Miller is going to jail.We need to watch this.

If you can't make it out to leaflet show your support by standing at noon for two minutes (one minute each for Cooper and Miller).

If you have any questions please call me on my cell 562-260-8378. Also check out the Guild website and get on the Guild activist list.

Thanks. - Vicki
