POG A20 legal update
by POG Friday, Oct. 07, 2005 at 1:46 AM

After a preliminary hearing for four of the six August 20th arrestees, several of the charges have been dismissed. The most serious charge of "rioting to prevent official action" (a felony) was dismissed, as well as three charges of failure to disperse. One of the arrestees accepted a plea to a summary offense and was accessed a fine. Unfortunately, several charges are being held over for trial:

POG will post updates when a trial date has been assigned.

A fifth arresstee (biten by a police dog) has a preliminary hearing on October 11. She is charged with failure to disperse (misdemeanor charge). Please consider attending her trial if possible, she also needs our support.

"skullfuck"
by a telling admission Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2005 at 2:53 PM

What kind of person would even *want* to "skullfuck" an IMCista?

It's a mighty short list. If you love IMC, let alone truth and justice, no one on it is your friend.

"truth and justice"
by applause meter Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2005 at 3:04 PM

I'm so proud of you, precious. You used more tired buzzwords that only have meaning to highly suggestive schoolgirls.

Now, tell us again how old you are? Not chronologically, of course....

Far removed from banishing war forever
by ella Sunday, Nov. 27, 2005 at 11:14 AM

War is happening here,and it is not full of justice, law making without justice is quagmire approaching general crisis. The peoples simply cannot believe in a system that relies on weapons of mass destruction and their practice such as Tasers. When the majority no longer believe the governments elected officials are relevant to their well being, the constitution says the people have the duty to alter or abolish said government and replace it with one that does, in their own name. Peoples democracy is being trampled on here and brutal oppression is replacing justice. The new millenium needs a new constitution, instead of empire building and destruction. Why not cause a constituent assembly, and change to doubling democracy, by electing woman equally judicially and politically thusly restoring the matriarchy and re-allowing woman to make half the laws in a calendar year as was the case in the British Tribes before the Roman slaveholders conquest and destruction of a functioning matriarchy? That way the poverty, pollution and useless wars of aggression against peoples ends forever on the planet earth. Liberation not re-conquest is needed and the majority of the American people know it. More abuse and destruction of the peoples by U.S. Imperialism will only result in greater aleination from the present system. No justice no peace, is constitutional and American as apple pie. Peace equals disarmament.

protest arrests
by hunter Tuesday, Mar. 07, 2006 at 5:05 PM

Those arrested during the anti-war protests deserved to be arrested from the video footage that I have seen. It is very simple, if you do not want to be arrested, then follow the very civil laws of our society. Otherwise, why don't you attempt to protest the Cuban governments lack of freedoms from within Cuba.

Go back to Iran, hunter

Try Iran (or Pakistan or Red China or occupied Palestine), hunter. You wouldn't have to worry about free-speech, abortion, evolution, gay marriage, or any of the other things you right-wingnuts get so upset over.
