ACAC 19 Update: Pre-Trial Hearing Postponed Until March 29th
Wed Feb 6 2013 (Updated 02/12/13)
The ACAC 19 Support Committee Is Asking Supporters to Pack the Courtroom
On Friday, February 8th, one hundred anti-repression activists gathered at the pre-trial motions hearing of the Anti-colonial, Anti-capitalist 19 (ACAC 19). Members of the ACAC 19 support committee write:

"A long line of supporters and defendants slowly filed through the metal detectors. The officers turned off the second metal detector, making the line move so slowly that the hearing was over before many people, and even some defendants, were through the line."

The newly-appointed judge of the trial moved to extend the deadline of pre-trial motions to Tuesday, March 29th at 9 AM. The ACAC 19 Support Committee asks that activists once again pack the courtroom for the next pre-trial hearing.

Feb 7th update: On Friday, February 8th members of the anti-colonial, anti-capitalist 19 (ACAC 19) head to court for the final motions in the pre-trial hearing stemming from arrests made on October 6th in San Francisco as activists marched against Columbus Day, colonialism, empire, and Fleet Week. Those facing charges by the SF D.A.'s office were beaten, arrested and subsequently smeared by local newspapers and TV outlets. Two of the defendants have been harassed repeatedly within their communities.

The ACAC 19 Support Committee writes: After being released from jail, two defendants found threatening leaflets in their neighborhood with their home addresses and photos printed on them. At least one member of the ACAC 19 has also experienced continued police harassment at his workplace. In early December, two defendants received word that their Twitter accounts had been subpoenaed, evidence that the SFPD is using the case to map and surveil radical political networks in the Bay area. In the wake of a year of rebellious and militant political activity across the country, we see this as one of many attempts to harass, intimidate, and control radical movements."

The Support Committee is asking the community to pack the courts and call-in to the SF District Attorney's office to support those facing charges. Final motions will take place at 12:30pm on Friday, February 8th at the San Francisco courthouse located at 850 Bryant.
