Subject: Safe Park Update

This is just a brief update on today's set date for the 25 people still
facing charges arising from the Safe Park protest.

All those accused appeared either in person or by agent in courtroom 505
of College Park courts this morning at 10:00 a.m. for what promised to be
yet another court appearance and the likelyhood of having to return in
January to again try to set a date for trial.

Instead, it appears that the crown is prepared to drop the mischief
charges against the 19 people charged with mischief and trespass.  6
others, charged with offences such as assault police and breach of
conditions, will still be facing trial on their charges. As well, the 19
who had the mischief charges withdrawn will still be tried for trespassing
at Allan Gardens (a very large public park in the down town core of
Toronto).

Everyone is expected to appear tomorrow (December 1st) at 9:00 a.m. in 502
Court of College Park where the mischief charges will be formally
withdrawn and those facing trespass charges only will be setting a date to
appear at Old City Hall Courts.  The 6 remaining people with criminal
charges (including one person still in custody) will be setting a date for
a seperate trial at College Park Courts.

The struggle continues.
