TRIAL UPDATE FROM NATE! 7/10/12
Quick update from court, today we had our first pre-re-trial date! It was well attended by many supporters — thank you! We switched my representation from Leigh, who did a great job but has to leave because it was too much. Now, Daire Irwin will be the new lawyer. The DA offered no new plea deal, just the old plea deal which they offered in the beginning of the process last year which is a misdemeanor conviction. So, in turn we will have our next pre-re-trial hearing on Friday, August 10th to hear motions to dismiss, and if that is unsuccessful we will move to trial, which is set for the week of October 15th. Please set aside dates!
Other than that, we had a great press conference afterwards where we had amazing speakers, Sarah Buckley, Russell Brown, Nan Simpson, and John Washington, who did an amazing work by conveying our message of anti-war, right to free speech, no police brutality, stop wasting our money, don’t use “McCarthyite” tactics to prosecute this, go after the police who acted aggressive, the ones who protected private bank with public funds from an peaceful crowd, the ones who brought the guns, tazers, mace and clubs. Really hands off to the speakers. And we followed it by some singing together with the assistance of Josh Cerretti’s guitar playing.

Its a sad day when this song still rings true. How about we bring pressure to bear to stop these horrible wars of aggression, and stop beating the people who speak out about it. I find it incredible that the US can decide it is needed all around the world and invades foreign countries it has no business being in, with out UN approval but can’t seem to intervene to stop police brutality, rape, hunger, human rights abuses in all its jails and prisons.. ect in this country. War, Malicious Prosecution, prisons are all big business. It isn’t that these issues can’t be solved the people who don’t want these issues solved.
Picket lines and picket signs
Don’t punish me with brutality
Talk to me, so you can see
Oh, what’s going on
What’s going on
Ya, what’s going on
Ah, what’s going on
