Court Support for War Protestors

Arraignments for many the war protestors arrested March 20 are being held at 1:30 pm 4/14 through 4/24 in court room one at the Justice Center.
Arraignments for many the war protestors arrested March 20 are being held at 1:30 pm 4/14 through 4/24 in court room one at the Justice Center. The courtroom is open to the public. Most of the charges are being reduced to violations (in other words NO JAIL TIME) and many of the defendants are pleading not guily. On May 20 at 9:00 am many of the defendants will be returning to the court room to reenter their plea after seeing the police report about their arrests (for some reason these have not been released yet). It might be nice to have a breakfast gathering across from the Justice Center that morning and/or a picnic at lunch time. Any one interested?
