Who Are The State Street 29

The State Street 29 is a group of individuals who were arrested on the
night of April 8th, 2010 and now facing charges from rioting to Felony
Assualt on an Officer. They were arrested at a march consisting of over
60 people that took place in downtown Olympia. The march was done in
solidarity with the West Coast Days of Action against State
Violence to draw attention to the fact that police everywhere are
perpetuating and fostering fear among our communities.

The April 8th march was similar to ones that took place in Portland,
Seattle and the San Francisco Bay Area on the same day as well as
April 9th. These marches were formed to speak out against recent
unjustified violent actions taken by police officers in these cities
and surrounding areas.
