REMINDER: Cindy Sheehan, dozens of others may risk
arrest Wednesday night at Occupy Sacramento; City
expected to play the role of 'Scrooge' again

SACRAMENTO – Occupy Sacramento has announced it will hold a "First Amendment Party" at Cesar Chavez Park Wednesday night in sympathy with the raids of Occupy SF today – and that it expects the City of Sacramento to again play the Scrooge.

The "Party" begins at 11:01 p.m. Wednesday night at Cesar Chavez Park, one minute after the city imposed curfew, which has led to 87 misdemeanor arrests since Occupy Sacramento started Oct. 6. "Occupiers" are expected to gather between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Cindy Sheehan, and participants from the greater Sacramento area, foothills, Stockton, Elk Grove and Woodland are expected to join the festivities. But dozens of arrests may occur if the City maintains its "zero tolerance" policy.

Nine jury trials are set to begin Dec. 13. The District Attorney refused to prosecute, but the City of Sacramento is pursing the cases, which carry six-month jail sentences for a curfew violation.

Occupy Sacramento maintains the First Amendment does not end at 11 p.m. (midnight on weekends), and that free speech and freedom of assembly rights continue for 24 hours a day, despite a local ordinance banning First Amendment activities in city parks at night.
