This item was brought to my attention by the event’s organizer: a lady named Kathleen. She writes:

Otherwise I have received a brief update from Christina. She writes:
I just spoke to him. Basically he has a lawyer in Indiana trying to turn over his plea from 2001 for this exact reason but it a conservative state and there is no guarantee how this will go down. He informed me that his next hearing is on November 29th at Varick St. He asked me to get together the petitions and letters to the defense of his character prior to that date. When you can, maybe we can ask people who are acquainted with him, are fans of Greenpoint Bikes, or are sympathetic to his case to write letters stating who they are and why he should remain in this country. They can leave them with me or at the bike shop. On the 29th anyone who wants to come down to Varick St. and show their support for his case is urged to join us at 9 am. I am sure there will be more details before then but for now that’s all I know.
To be continued…
UPDATE, 6:50 p.m.: You can follow Mr. Airaldi’s story (and his upcoming hearing) via this newly erected Facebook page.*
