Noon Time Leafleting & Banner at Oakland Federal Building
Monday, December 4th, 11:30am to 1:00pm
Oakland Federal Building
1411 Clay Street, Oakland
Please join us Monday to support jailed whistleblower Reality Leigh Winner on her 26th birthday. Reality is being held without bail for helping expose Russian hacking efforts leading up to the 2016 US election. Having been charged under the Espionage Act for sending a classified NSA document to the media, she faces 10 years in prison. Reality is the first victim of the Trump Administration's “war on leakers.”
We will pass out informational flyers, take a photo with our Stand with Reality banner, & provide an update on her case.
Reality Winner has been an outspoken critic of Trump and a staunch advocate of social justice causes, including Standing Rock, animal rights, climate science, Black Lives Matter, whistleblowers and free speech. And now the views she’s shared on social media are being used as evidence against her in a truly Orwellian trial.
Reality is charged with printing the secret document the day Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. The day after Trump told Russian officials that he fired “nut job” Comey to ease pressure from a Russiagate investigation, Reality allegedly sent the document to the media.
Please help us get the word out about Reality Winner’s case and its precedent setting implications for free speech, press freedom, election suppression, and the government’s increasingly aggressive war on dissent. The outcome of her case will impact us all.
