[PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY]
This message is to ask you to contribute financially to the liberation of Juan Pablo Lepore, the last person to have been arrested following the G20 events. Since he has been arrested, he's been detained and we obtained a short extension to raise some money to bail him out. We have currently about $3000 and we need $5000, so WE NEED YOUR HELP.
Juan Pablo is an Argentinian documentary film-maker and independent journalist visiting Canada for several months.
He has spent most of his time visting Montreal, but he travelled, like many Canadian residents, to Toronto last June to document the movement opposing the G20.
Juan dedicated his work as a videographer and journalist to the documentation of resistance movement converging, as in Toronto in June, to protest the criminal policies implemented by institutions like the G20, the IMF or the World Bank. He also documents the daily resistance of Argentinian communities facing the consequences of the same policies.
He is presently detained for political reasons.
