Event Type Protest
An 11-year-old limited-English, Spanish speaking female child was harassed by boys while playing who threw rocks and water balloons at her. She threw one of the small rocks back, causing a slight injury to an attacking boy. His life was not in any danger at all. Someone called the police. The police came with a helicopter and police cars, pinned the poor, screaming child down with his big fat knee, put her in handcuffs, dragged her to prison for 5 days, and then the Fresno County fascist criminal system put this poor child, WHO DID NOTHING WRONG AT ALL, in a monitoring bracelet. NOW THEY ARE PRESSING FELONY ASSAULT CHARGES AGAINST THIS CHILD. THIS IS NAZI GERMANY ALL OVER AGAIN. It is an attack on the workingclass, women and children.

Get off the dime right now and call the Fresno County District Attorney:

Elizabeth Egan
District Attorney
Fresno County Plaza

2220 Tulare Street, Suite 1000, Fresno, CA 93721

Phone 488-3141 / Fax (559) 488-2800


I urge every single Fresno County resident to get on the phone RIGHT NOW and leave a message with the district attorney stating: (1) You are a Fresno County Resident (no need to give name); (2) Drop the charges against Maribel Cuevas TODAY!; (3) Never again allow such fascist attacks on human beings again!

Those of you who do not live in Fresno County may also wish to call and you should add (4) Fresno County, like all other counties, receives state and federal tax dollars to function and therefore it is everybody's business as to what happens in Fresno County.
