In support of the Twin Cities RNC Welcoming Committee - Friends of the RNC 8 site created
Wednesday Sep 10th, 2008 10:52 AM
September 4th, 2008: This site is being set up to support the members of the RNC Welcoming Committee who have been falsely charged because of their facilitation of protesters during the 2008 Republican National Convention.
We will be posting updates, information about the legal case, links to coverage in the news, and as much as possible direct statements from the members of the Welcoming Committee (of course, with the threat of these charges it is difficult for them to freely communicate).

We are asking for donations to cover the legal fees and other expenses related to the trial. You can donate via PayPal. Communities United Against Police Brutality is a 501c3 non-profit organization that is acting as a financial agent to collect the donations.
