Journalists, political activists and elected officials are scheduled to appear at an event on Dec. 7 to call for the release of Josh Wolf, the blogger and freelance news photographer who has been jailed because he refuses to provide a videotape he shot of a political protest to federal prosecutors. Speakers at this event will include Assemblyman Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, San Francisco Supervisors Chris Daly and Ross Mirkarimi and SF Bay Guardian Publisher Bruce Brugmann. An independent filmmaker, Kevin Epps, will screen a short documentary about Wolf. The event takes place Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. at Balazo Gallery, 2183 Mission Street at 18th Street, San Francisco. Sponsors are SF Bay Guardian, The Free Josh Wolf Coalition, League of Young Voters, Reporters Without Borders and Youth Radio. A $10 donation is requested.
