Grand jury teach-in
Please join us on June 11th for a community grand jury teach-in. Grand juries are tools of government harassment that have long been used to intimidate and destroy radical movements. There is an active grand jury convened in the Bay Area. Several people have been subpoenaed and are scheduled to appear before the grand jury on June 12th. They need your support! Come out and learn what grand juries are and how they operate, what your rights are, and how you can support grand jury resisters.

This forum highlighting grand juries as tools of government repression is being organized as part of the June 11th International Day of Solidarity with Eric McDavid and Marie Mason (http://www.june11.org/). Eric and Marie are political prisoners who have the misfortune of serving the longest standing sentences of any environmental prisoners in the United States. This event is free but we will be accepting donations for Eric and Marie’s support funds.
