Free Mike Hawash!
Rally - Monday April 7 - 8:30am
Please begin gathering at 8:15am
Mark O Hatfield U. S. Courthouse
1000 SW Third Ave.
(corner of SW Salmon and 3rd Ave)
Please join us in support of Mike Hawash on Monday April 7 at 8:30 on the steps of the U.S. Courthouse. We believe that Mike has a hearing scheduled for that time and expect that a show of support will help his cause. We expect a lot of press coverage so the more people, the better.
As you know, Mike has been detained by the FBI for over 2 weeks now without any charges brought. He is being held in prison, in solitary confinement and has not even been questioned. We believe that this is wrong and that it is inconsistent with his rights as an American citizen.
This will be a non-violent, peaceful rally. At this time, it is very important that Mike knows that there are people who believe that he is being treated unfairly and that there are people who really care what happens to him.
So come, bring your friends, bring your family, bring your neighbors. Help us get the message out that Mike should be treated fairly.
If you would like to carry a sign, we encourage you to do that. Some ideas for signage include:
"Free Mike Hawash"
"Free Mike Now"
"No Secret Justice"
But, by all means, write a sign that speaks to how you feel personally, but please write them in the spirit of a peaceful rally.
See you there!
Parking: There is a SMART Park at 4th and Yamhill
