get friends to write letters- ACLU flier attached to Jean’s Email – Testimony for DT Exclusion Zone

Proposal to consent on stance against extension of exclusion zone
- confusing law
- intent to alleviate room in jails, but offences people are excluded from are not jailable offenses
- convoluted legal process- excluded before trial
- ignorance and miscommunication on part of law enforcement
- used selectively
With one stand aside, we have consensed our opposition to the extension of the exclusion zone.
