On this KI-6 coalition site that I've posted, the petition is just a click away, on the left side of the page. It isn't here that I found out that the appeal of the 6-month prison sentence is on May 28, but in an Indian Country Today article, dated 12 May 2008.

I have posted that Indian Country Today article, which is an interview with one of the First Nation leaders who has been imprisoned.
Don't hesitate to go & read it -

MAY 28th APPEAL : 7 First Nation Leaders Serving Prison Terms For Opposing Uranium Mining on Their Lands -
this is the interview with Bob Lovelace,
Algonquin chief & Queen's U professor serving 6-month sentence for refusing to comply with court injunction forbidding protests against uranium exploration co that's staked claims across 30,000 acres of traditional territory. 6 KI 1st Nation leaders, too!

Btw, the title got 'abridged' - it should read "...on Their Ontario Boreal Forest Lands."
