All the folks who were arrested at the Yates Building occupation have court this coming Monday, Jan 30th at 9am. Come out to the Hillsborough Courthouse to show your support for them and to take a stand against the police raid.
The DA’s office wants to close the court cases on Monday. They want to quiet the outraged voices that have come from so many different corners of our communities. Come out and show them that we won’t be intimidated, that we will fight the city government’s attempts to suppress political speech and action. Come out and show them that no matter what happens in the courtroom, we won’t stop organizing against the violent police–we won’t stop organizing for community control.
For autonomy and dignity.
