The Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) are calling for an international day of action in solidarity with the J20 defendants on Monday, June 25th.
DC: Charges dismissed against 10 inauguration day protest defendants after prosecution lies about hiding evidence. Four other Inauguration Day protest defendants await a jury verdict on several felonies, still facing decades in prison.
Washington, DC – The United States government has officially been put “on notice” for violating the constitutional rights of anti-Trump protesters. While the second trial of people mass-arrested at an “anti-capitalist, antifascist” protest march during President Trump’s inauguration in DC began last week, hearings for other protest trial groups have also been underway. At a trial readiness hearing today for the June 4 trial group, DC Superior Court Chief Judge Robert Morin delivered a major blow to the prosecution’s case, officially ruling that the US Attorney had illegally withheld evidence from protester defendants.
Six inauguration day defendants move for sanctions against a federal prosecutor and dismissal of their charges.
Next group of J20 inauguration protestors prepare for trial. Jury selection begins May 14.
Call to support the J 20 defendants: “To vanquish the J20 prosecution is to help topple the AmericanState, by attacking them at a point where they are weak. Where we
exploit the State’s weakness, we show our strength. And the strength of
all revolutionary struggle and every liberatory movement. (…) We are calling for an unrelenting, diffuse, solidarity campaign until our comrades are entirely released from their present repressive situation. For an up-tick of visibility to pervade our movements worldwide, and for concentrated actions in the days ahead of the May 14th trial, and then more one or two weeks ahead of each subsequent trial if the trials persist. “
Call for solidarity and action on April 10th with J20 defendants.

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.
