Report: Protest in Solidarity With #J20 Defendents at #DC Superior Court

On the 27th of November, a protest was held outside DC Superior Court in solidarity with J20 (Inauguration protest) defendents facing up to 65 years in prison. One message of the protest was that “a vote to convict is a vote for Trump” driven home by a chant. It has also come out that police had already decided to carry out the mass arrest prior to the march ever leaving Logan Circle.

Report: Protest in Solidarity With J20 Defendents at DC Superior Court

On the 27th of November, a protest was held outside DC Superior Court in solidarity with J20 (Inauguration protest) defendents facing up to 65 years in prison. One message of the protest was that “a vote to convict is a vote for Trump” driven home by a chant. It has also come out that police had already decided to carry out the mass arrest prior to the march ever leaving Logan Circle.

This protest took place just before the opening of the third week of the first of a yearlong series of trials, this one with six defendents none of which the prosecution alleges carried out any individual acts of property destruction whatsoever. A speaker from the Defend J20 Resistance support crew reported that video has been played in court proving a police commander had decided to arrest all participants in the anticapitalist block before the march even left Logan Circle.

Many have said that if the J20 defendants are convicted, anyone and everyone attending any protest whatsoever will be risking imprisonment for the rest of their life if any other person anywhere in the protest commits any illegal act whatsoever. As further evidence that this is aimed at squashing all resistance to Trump’s agenda, a speaker cited the fact that rioting Nazis and fascists were not mass arrested and charged with wholesale felonies in Charlottesville, and that even destructive riots by fans of sporting events do not normally lead to mass arrests and never lead to conspiracy charges and threats of decades in prison.

enoughcrowdfundingnovdecOur equipment suffered a lot from traveling around Europe for our independent on the ground reports. We need new microphones for better audio on our video reports, a new laptop (the last one crashed in Catalonia) and have a lot of expenses for our on the ground reporting.

We want to stay independent and want to expand our work with on the ground reporting across Europe and even beyond. Therefore we need your support. Help maintain our site and continue our work. Your donations make our work possible.

We did and do a lot of on the ground reporting in Europe. On December 17 we will travel to Lesvos (Greece) and in January we will travel from Lesvos to Athens to report on the ground.

Each donation helps, also the small ones. Thank you for supporting our project.
