Minister of Information JR from the Prisoners of Conscience Committee interviews Drew Louis on Block Report Radio. JR and Drew are two of the three people still facing felony charges related to the Oscar Grant Rebellion of January 7th. They talk about how the protesters were condemned by many but that it was those who stood up in the streets that forced city government to deal with the situation and not sweep it under the rug. JR and Drew go on talk about the interracial nature of the demonstrations on January 7th. A surprising statement Drew made to the news media is discussed.

JR's upcoming court dates are Thursday, April 23rd, at 9am in Courtroom 115, and Tuesday the 28th of April at 2pm in Courtroom 115.

Drew goes back to court on Wednesday, April 22nd at 9am in Courtroom 112 or 115.
