Still more protests demanding the release of Dmitry Sklyarov are scheduled for MONDAY, JULY 30TH, around the country. Protests will be happening in San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, and Seattle.

Since the demonstrations were so effective at convincing Adobe that they were in the wrong, on MONDAY, JULY 30TH, there will be demonstrations in San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, and Seattle in an effort to get a simple message across to the Federal Government: Writing Software is Not a Crime.

Here are the details on the demonstrations:


San Francisco

Where: Civic Center Plaza (the central square with all of the knobbly trees). If the plaza is busy, we'll gather on the steps of the SF Main Public Library.

When: MONDAY, JULY 30TH, 11:30AM.

What: "We march from there to the appropriate building, and make a lot of ruckus and hullabaloo."

Bring: A sign with a short, simple slogan to get the message across. Hats, sunscreen, and water are also recommended. Shouting is thirsty work.

Print: If you can print some flyers to hand out to folks, so much the better.

Boston

Where: Park Street, just south of Park Street Station (on the Red and Green lines).

When: MONDAY, JULY 30TH, HIGH NOON.

Los Angeles

Where: Outside Senator Feinstein's LA Office (GREAT idea!), 11111 Santa Monica Boulevard, Suite 915, Los Angeles, CA 90025

What: Carry signs, pass out leaflets, and spread the word.

Bring: A sign with a short, simple slogan to get the message across. Hats, sunscreen, and water are also recommended. Shouting is thirsty work.

Minneapolis

Where: Minneapolis Federal Courthouse, 300 S 4th St.

When: MONDAY, JULY 30TH, 4-6PM

What: "Come dressed nicely and be prepared to talk to strangers. We want to be approachable, not confrontational. People still don't know what we're about which this means this is our chance to make a first impression. Let that impression be that we are articulate and compelling, not rowdy or incoherent anarchists. Our audience (the public) is not our target (collectively: Ashcroft, Mueller, Wellstone, Dayton, congress), let's not treat them like they are."
