First Occupy Sacramento protesters appear in court

by Dan Bacher

Time Tested Books will be sponsoring a great event, Hobos to Street People, today, October at 7 p.m. Local photographer and artist Francisco Dominguez will be at the event.

Hobos to Street People presents a social, cultural and political history of Homelessness from the Great Depression to the present as seenthrough the work of artists from Dorothea Lange, Rockwell Kent and Fritz Eichenberg to contemporary artists Kiki Smith, Eric Drooker, Jos Sances, David Bacon and local artist Francisco Dominguez.

There will be a Power Point Presentation & Book Signing by author, Art Hazelwood, with special guest speaker Shaka Curry of SAFEGROUND.

Hobos to Street People is a touring exhibition that originated in San Francisco in 2008 and is currently on view through December 4, 2011 at the de Saisset Museum Santa Clara University.

This event takes place as the police, the servants of Wall Street and the corporatocracy, in Sacramento, Oakland and across the nation are using park curfew, loitering and anti-homeless ordinances to brutally repress the Occupy Wall Street protests in violation of the Constitution and the First Amendment.

Twenty Occupy Sacramento demonstrators who were arrested on the first day of the occupation Oct. 6 made their first court appearance this morning at Sacramento Superior Courthouse (720 9th St.). 79 have been arrested, in a gross violation of their First Amendment rights, at Occupy Sacramento since Oct. 6.

Pro-bono lawyers representing Occupy Sacramento postponed the cases until November 3 to give the defense attorneys a chance to analyze the court filings.

Mark Merin, Jeff Kravitz and other lawyers discussed a possible lawsuit against the City of Sacramento against the city's violation of protesters' First Amendment rights in a press conference held at Cesar Chavez park on Monday.

"The unlawful assembly charge is a police or city-created crime. It cannot prevail in court," said civil rights attorney Jeff Kravitz early Monday when he appeared with other pro bono lawyers. He predicted the DA would not go forward with the charges, and later Monday the DA confirmed it.

District Attorney Jan Scully said she would not prosecute the people because no crime was committed, but the City Attorney has chosen to prosecute the protesters on "curfew" and "loitering" violations.

Tonight's event is *FREE.

*Donations are welcome to cover transportation costs for the author traveling from the bay area. Any additional funds raised will be donated to SAFEGROUND.
