Subject: Support the Kibby Political Trial
Hello all,

I am writing to you because you are either a fellow wind warrior or a fellow supporter of civil disobedience, or both! Last summer four brave folks were arrested while blocking a truck carrying parts for the wind project on Kibby Mountain in western, Maine, a remote area that is being devastated by industrial wind power. Four people, Courtney-Ann Boucher, Ana Isabel Rodriguez, Erik Gillard and Willow Amanda Cordez-Eklund were arrested in this action (please see article below for more details) against the corporate domination of ecological unique mountain areas. These folks have been working hard with lawyers to develop a plan and are now taking the case to jury trial in Farmington. This trial will be an opportunity to again raise awareness about the environmental and social destruction caused by placing industrial wind power in remote locations. This is also an opportunity to recognize the power of civil disobedience and its historical and current role in this political movement. 
We are asking for supporters to attend the trial on Monday June 20th at the Superior Court House in Farmington. We are still awaiting to hear a time, and I will email folks back with that information as soon as I receive it.  We hope to pack the courthouse to show the public opposition to wind power that exists in this state. We are also asking folks for donations to help fund travel to court and other logistical expenses. Donations can be sent to Meg Gilmartin at PO Box 622; Corinth, Maine 04427. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or for more info. 
WHAT: Jury Trial for Kibby Wind Protestors 
WHERE: 140 Main Street; Superior Court House; Farmington 
WHEN: Monday June 20th (most likely in the afternoon, but we will keep you posted!)
Thank you all for your support!! 
For the wild,
