There is an urgent need for folks to come and be in the courtroom tomorrow, Tuesday, May 10 for the new - third - A14 trial. The jury in the second A14 trial has been deliberating for 3 days - we expect a verdict tomorrow.
Keith James and Wil B are the defendants now starting trial. Opening statements in their case begin at 1:30 pm, Dept 52, 7th Floor, Foltz Criminal Justice Center, 210 W. Temple, LA, 90012.
The judge is trying to keep the politics out of the trial, so we need people in the courtroom representing what this movement is about and showing the jury and the judge we support our freedom fighters - ideally in t-shirts with the messages of this movement, including pictures of loved ones killed by police. Please let us know if you can make it. (This trial will be going on all week, 10:30 am to noon and 1:30 to 4:30.)
