Louis Hunter is facing felony charges and serious time for participating in a protest of the police murder of his cousin, Philando Castile. He faces 2 counts of 2nd degree riot while armed with a dangerous weapon, up to 10 years in prison, and a $20k fine. If convicted, Louis faces as much time in prison as the cop who murdered Philando. These charges are trumped up and unjust! Louis’ family is grieving and has been through too much already. Now, in addition to supporting his family in this difficult time, he is preparing to defend himself in court. Acting in solidarity with Louis is paramount to continuing the struggle for black lives right now.
You can support Louis Hunter by attending the press conference and pack the courtroom for Louis’ next hearing!
Help show Louis and the public that we have his back, and show the State that we won’t back down! Come to the Ramsey County Courthouse at 15 W. Kellogg in Downtown St. Paul on Thursday, 5/18. Gather at 8:00 am, press conference at 8:15. After the press conference, help us pack the courtroom for Louis’ hearing at 9:00am. Please wear black & gold to show solidarity.
