Some 70 San Francisco residents contributed $1,200 on Friday (Aug. 19) for the defense fund of Josh Wolf, according to the San Francisco Sentinel online newspaper. Wolf is the freelance photographer who was jailed Aug. 1 for refusing to provide video outtakes of an anarchist protest to a federal grand jury. In the photo above by Luke Thomas of the Sentinel, Bay Guardian owner Bruce Brugmann is seen second from left at the fund-raiser. A second fundraiser is in the planning for around Sept. 16, journalist Rick Knee tells the Sentinel. He said the biggest hurdle is finding a venue that can accommodate 200 people. The Sentinel site has information on how you can contact Knee if you have a place for the event or how to contribute to the defense fund.
