> Subject: Support Gabe Meyers!
>
> ** Support Gabe Meyers **
>
> On July 8, 2005, 28 year-old caretaker Gabe Meyers was arrested at an
> anti-G8 solidarity protest in San Francisco. He is currently facing
> three charges: Lynching (the removal of someone from police custody, a
> felony), rioting (a misdemeanor), and resisting arrest (a
> misdemeanor).
> The government is charging Gabe with lynching himself because, while
> being choked unconscious by Officer Michael Wolf, he allegedly
> cried out
> “Help me.” [pictured]
>
> The prosecution against him is politically motivated – he is the only
> person with criminal charges from a protest where a SFPD officer was
> injured. Though Gabe's case is unrelated, the City of SF is
> pursuing his
> charges to exact their misguided retribution for that incident. At the
> same time, the City is disregarding witness accounts that these
> officers
> drove into the crowd at dangerous speeds.
>
> After dozens of postponements and a surprise change of attorneys,
> Gabe's
> trial is coming up this month and he needs the support of our
> community!
> Please attend these hearings – strong public support in the courtroom
> does more than just show Gabe that we have his back, it also makes a
> favorable impression on judges and juries.
>
> * 9/6/06 9am: Pretrial Hearing *
>
> Judge Jackson will hear arguments and rule on a motion to dismiss the
> lynching change. This is a critical hearing – if Gabe wins on this
> motion, he only has the two misdemeanors to worry about. Location: 850
> Bryant, Dept. 29
>
> The fight against global capitalist institutions like the G8 can
> only be
> won when we get behind those like Gabe who are willing to stand up and
> put themselves on the line. Don't let the government's war on dissent
> interrupt our solidarity for Gabe and all those facing
> politically-motivated prosecutions.
