Whether you were in the building or not, this is a great way to show solidarity for these 4 who're facing down a felony trial for the hundreds of others who entered the building.

I'm sorry to filter reality through the "fb" sieve, but here is one way to support
the 4 defendants currently facing a felony jury trial.

Hundreds of folks entered the building at 75 River St. Lots of things happened there,
including talk of creating a community center. During the 3 days people were in the building,
someone painted slogans and tags on some of the wall surfaces. It has been admitted by
the DA that there is "no evidence" pointing to these defendants. Yet here they are, more than
2 years later, their lives up-ended as they face a 2 month long trial.

If you were in the building or even if you weren't, please use this image as your internet profile
picture in solidarity with these 4 people.

Its a valid question, right?

It can't be that the photo is contentious, it was taken and posted on this very site.
Maybe I should give credit for the photo?

Maybe its too edgy to encourage folks to take such a strong stand in solidarity?

I wonder....
