==================================
1. UPDATE ON COURT PROCEEDINGS
==================================

On the morning of Friday, June 18th, 4 people were arrested in Ottawa
in connection to the May 18th firebombing of RBC branch in Ottawa, ON.
One of those individuals was released last night with no charges. The
remaining 3 people appeared in court today in Ottawa, and each has
secured legal counsel for their defence.

The bail hearings for all 3 have been held over until next week,
possibly Friday, June 25, though that date is not confirmed. The
arrestees are being transferred to the Ottawa Carleton Detention
Centre, and will appear via video in court on Monday, June 21, to set
a firm date for their bail hearings. We will update everyone once a
specific date and time are set.

The charges and names of the three individuals are, as reported by CBC
Ottawa are:

Roger Clement, of Ottawa, charged with arson causing damage,
possession of incendiary material, using explosives with intent to
cause property damage, and mischief

Mathew Morgan-Brown, of Ottawa, charged with arson, arson causing
damage, possession of incendiary material, using explosives with
intent to cause property damage, and mischief.

Claude Haridge, of Ottawa, charged with arson, careless storage and
handling of ammunition, and mischief.

More than 50 friends, family and colleagues were present in court
today to support the 3 arrestees. Thank you to everyone that came out.
It's vital we make it clear to the Crown, to the cops, and to the
media that these three individuals are part of our communities and
that we won't allow them to be railroaded or treated unfairly by the
justice system. Again, thank you so very much for all the support we
received on such short notice.

===============================================
2. NOTE OF CAUTION TO FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS
===============================================

Please be careful when discussing this situation publicly, including
online and to the media, as incautious statements may compromise the
ability of the accused to defend themselves in court.

Now that this matter is before the courts, we need to ensure the Crown
is able to base its case only on substantive evidence, rather than
relying on sensational or incautious public comments.

In particular, IT IS THE POSITION OF OTTAWA MOVEMENT DEFENSE THAT
SPEAKING VOLUNTARILY TO THE POLICE WILL PREJUDICE THE DEFENSE OF THE
ACCUSED AND MAKE THEIR COURT PROCEEDINGS MORE DIFFICULT.

ANY STATEMENT MADE TO THE POLICE OR MEDIA CAN BE USED AGAINST THE
ACCUSED, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER IT IS HYPOTHETICAL OR BASED ON
DISTORTED INFORMATION.

No matter how friendly or intimidating police may appear, or how
clever you think you might be in getting information out of them,
nothing good can come of voluntarily talking to the police.

If police contact you, please let us know as soon as possible at
ottawamovementdefense@gmail.com

==============================
3. DONATING TO THE LEGAL FUND
==============================

Right now, financial support is crucial for two reasons. The first is
that, while it is unclear at this time what possible bail conditions
the Crown may ask for, or even if they will consent to releasing the 3
arrestees, we may need to put forward a significant amount of money
for bail. We're very grateful to everyone that has contributed
already. But we may need a considerable amount more.

Unfortunately, as bail conditions weren't discussed at all in court
today, we are unable to provide more specific information at this
time.

The second reason is that we must begin fundraising for ongoing legal
costs, which will be significant. All indications are that this could
be a lengthy and involved proceeding and, while we can't speculate at
this time where it will end up, a trial could be a year or more away.

If you are able to donate any money, please contact us the Pay Pal
account (described below) or contact us at
ottawamovementdefense@gmail.com and indicate if you would like to
contribute to bail, legal costs, or both.
