Tue May 1 2012 (Updated 05/02/12)
Press Conference to Demand "Stop Wasting Taxpayers Money on These Witch-Hunt Prosecutions"
On Friday, May 4th, at 2:00 PM, at the Santa Cruz Courthouse, there will be a press conference, rally and march to demand dropping all charges against the Santa Cruz Eleven. The Santa Cruz Eleven are local community members who have been charged with an unprecedented variety of offenses arising from their alleged involvement with the occupation of a long-time vacant bank building late last fall, 2011.

Supporters of the Santa Cruz Eleven are seeking local, regional, national and international support for the defense of these community members.

Condemn any attempt to criminalize their exercise of the crucial First Amendment right to gather and disseminate information about this newsworthy event.

All charges based on this constitutionally protected activity should be dropped immediately.
