On January 20th, during massive protests at Trump's inauguration, protestors, journalists, legal observers, and by-standers were subject to police misconduct by the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington DC. Hundreds of participants were chased with less than lethal munitions and cornered at the intersection of 12 and L street NW by police. Over 200 people now face at least 8 felony charges and 75 years in prison if convicted.
In order to continue to build our capacity and strengthen our interconnected struggles, we are calling for a Week of Solidarity from July 20th to 27th to make support for the J20 defendants widely visible. July 20th marks six months since the initial actions and arrests; on July 27th, a motion to dismiss the charges will be argued in court.
The 5 Borough Anti-Repression Committee will be hosting a benefit show, film screening, and art sale to support NYC J20 defendants on the second day of the Week of Solidarity.
