SUPPORT ALL THOSE ARRESTED -- DROP ALL THE CHARGES NOW!
People are rightly disgusted with the way protesters are herded in pens, off to the side and marginalized. That people who sat down a few feet outside those pens, on a street already closed to traffic would be arrested is an outrage. Then several weeks later, rather than dropping these charges, the highly unusual step of adding additional charges against those who engaged in this civil disobedience action. This is an additional outrage which should be called out and reversed.
On November 27th, the three who spoke out against the arrests and then themselves were arrested are to appear in court and the initial group of 14 arrested are to appear in January 17. We call on people to stand with all of these defendants. Their actions should be applauded, not punished!
Pack the courtroom:
Tuesday, November 27th, 9:30 AM
Part A, Criminal Court, 100 Centre Street, Manhattan
January 17th, 9:30 AM
Criminal Court, 100 Centre Street, Manhattan
And beginning immediately, call or send letters or faxes to:
Robert M. Morgenthau, District Attorney:
One Hogan Place, New York, NY 10013
DROP ALL THE CHARGES NOW AGAINST ALL ARRESTED AT THE SEPTEMBER 25TH ANTI-BUSH PROTEST!
