Three anti-racist and anti-fascist protesters, Yvette Felarca, Michael Williams, and Porfirio Paz have filed a motion calling on Sacramento District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert and Judge Kevin J. McCormick to dismiss felony and misdemeanor charges stemming from the anti-fascist protest in Sacramento. On June 26, 2016 white supremacists affiliated with neo-Nazi terrorist organizations Traditionalist Workers Party (TWP) and Golden State Skinheads (GSS) came to the California State Capital armed with knives, clubs, and improvised spears. They beat and stabbed at least eight anti-racist and anti-fascist protesters.
Over a year later, in the summer of 2017, Sacramento District Attorney (DA) Anne Marie Schubert charged three anti-racist protesters with false felony and misdemeanor charges. Some of the very people who were stabbed and bludgeoned by the white supremacists are now facing prosecution. None of the fascists who stabbed people was arrested. Schubert is the same DA who has refused to charge to killer cops who murdered Stephon Clark while taking $470,000 in donation from various police associations and individual police officers.
Court documents, recordings, and pictures obtained by defense attorneys reveal police cover-up and collusion by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) and District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert with white supremacists.
Defense attorneys filed a motion on February 9, 2018 to drop the charges based on selective prosecution and lack of evidence. The hearing on the motion will be held in Judge Savage’s courtroom on May 4, 2018.
Come out to support those who, out of love for their community, stood up against hate. Support Yvette, Mike, and Porfirio, and all who make clear that Donald Trump and his movement of racism and immigrant bashing are not welcome in Sacramento or anywhere.
