The Hennepin County prosecutor has re-charged me with Gross Misdemeanor, which carries a maximum of 1-year prison & $1,000 fine, for my June 4 demonstration.of solidarity with CeCe McDonald.
I've been ordered to appear:
Sept. 13 at 8:30 am Hennepin County District Court PSF 141, "Public Safety" Facility 401 South Fourth Street Minneapolis, MN
I hope to see friends and other activists in court.
As defendant, I welcome parents and other caregivers bringing children of all ages, including infants and toddlers. I’ll bring crayons and drawing paper.
Please wear purple/buttons/t-shirts in solidarity with CeCe McDonald! I'll be wearing the free CeCe t-shirt designed by artist/activist Ricardo Levins Morales.
I've made a sign in support of CeCe to take with me to court. If you make and post your own sign in support of CeCe McDonald and/or have already posted one online, send me a copy of the photo/credit/location via social media and I’ll do my best to include your solidarity in the multi-media dedication to CeCe.
Please check that morning for the assigned courtroom.
My thanks to lawyer Bruce Nestor and the National Lawyers' Guild for helping me defend myself in the court of the 1%.
These words below are the only statement I can make at this time--the best I can do. I also include my June 4 statement below.
