Pack the courtroom Thursday and Friday‏ for JR Valrey, Nadra Foster, and Andrew Young
by San Francisco Bay View
Wednesday May 20th, 2009 7:16 PM
This email alert has just been released.
Packing the courtroom protects the innocent from being railroaded into prison. PLEASE PACK THE COURTROOM TO PROTECT AND FREE THESE INNOCENT DEFENDANTS:

JR Valrey - Bay View Associate Editor and POCC Minister of Information JR - will be looking for you tomorrow, Thursday, May 21, at 2 p.m. in Courtroom 115 at 661 Washington St. in downtown Oakland. Because MOI JR has exposed police terrorism for years, Oakland police want him in prison. So a week after the police murder of Oscar Grant, immediately after Mayor Dellums' press conference, where he had asked some tough questions, Oakland cops tackled JR, nearly breaking his leg, and charged him with felony arson - of a trash can, though he had no matches, no lighter, nothing but his camera, which OPD still holds. Pack the courtroom to free this innocent man!

Nadra Foster, veteran KPFA programmer, goes to court Friday, May 22, at 9 a.m. in Courtroom 114 at 661 Washington St. in downtown Oakland. Super-progressive KPFA became a police state last August when management called the police to remove Nadra for using a KPFA phone to call for a ride home and a KPFA copy machine to copy her children's homework. She's still in pain from the vicious police beating. Pack the courtroom to free this innocent woman!

Andrew "Drew" Young of the Oakland 100 goes to court Friday, May 22, at 1 p.m. in Courtroom 115 at 661 Washington St. in downtown Oakland. Police arrested 150 people during the three Oakland Rebellions protesting the police murder of Oscar Grant. Charges have been dropped against nearly all of them. Like MOI JR, Drew still faces a felony. Pack the courtroom to free this innocent man!
