Alison Bodine, the Financial Co-ordinator of the riven AMS resource group, the Social Justice Centre, landed in jail this week after trying to caim belongings that had been confiscated from her on re-entering Canada from her native U.S. No charges have been laid, and a hearing that was sceduled for today was cancelled. RCMP has declined comment.

Bodine is a well-recognized figure in certain ‘activist’ circles, being a leader in a bewildering assortment of badly named radical/lunatic groups, namely MAWO, CAWOPI and more! In a dramatic coup d’etat last spring, Bodine and some others from her group managed to grab a majority of the executive positions in the embattled AMS-funded resource group. Nobody should be jailed for trying to cross the border with pamphlets (no matter how stupid) though.

To free Alison, check out the Committee To Free Alison Bodine (no joke).

    So according to today’s Ubyssey, Alison Bodine isn’t even a UBC student anymore, having graduated in May. I wonder if she’s still allowed to control resource group finances.

    There’s a committee to free her? Poor sap… she’s never getting out, is she?

    “Committee: a situation in which the unwilling appoint the unable to do the unnecessary”

    She’s speaking at UBC today @ noon if anyone is interested.
