FIGHT BACK! An emergency event benefiting the legal defense fund of 2 Indymedia journalists...
This Friday, March 30, there will be an emergency benefit show for the legal defense fund of Bradley Stuart Allen and Alex Darocy, Santa Cruz Indymedia journalists on trial for felony conspiracy charges due to the fact that they entered a vacant Wells Fargo building repurposed by members of Occupy Santa Cruz for use as a community center and TOOK PICTURES! http://elenemigocomun.net/2012/03/indybay-conspiracy-to-make-media/ http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2012/03/20/18709755.php http://sandiego.indymedia.org/node/1524
This is blatant repression and an intimidation tactic used against journalists who dared to cover the Occupy protests from a perspective that doesn't tow the party line of corporate interests. From the letter to Santa Cruz District Attorney Bob Lee: "It is unfair to promote one journalistic viewpoint over another by deterring independent journalists from closely reporting news and events as they happen."
At the event organized by San Diego Indymedia (http://sandiego.indymedia.org
), there will be: an Indian dinner served for a $5 suggested donation, homebrewed beer, pomelo-tequila mixed drinks, a screening of the film End Civ (http://www.endciv.com
) and a performance by Elektra Thunderbunny.
Here's the tentative schedule:
630 pm Indian dinner and homebrewed beer will begin to be served
7 pm Screening of End Civ film
8:30 pm Elektra Thunderbunny / Woody Nightshade http://www.bradleystuart.net
