SIGN this petition to the Queens DA to DROP the Charges on Clark & Miles  

Clark Kissinger and Miles Solay
appeared for trial on February 22
in Queens NY, on charges from
the #ShutDownRikers protest 
in October. There was a brief
hearing on the evidence the
defense is seeking to discover
from the prosecutor, who is
required by law to provide
it to the defendants, including
video footage the NYPD was
seen taking at the scene.

 Clark and Miles with Kenny Gilbert, their lawyer
outside Queens Criminal Court.

The prosecutor disclaimed knowledge of such video, and has so far refused to lower charges on Clark and Miles.  The new trial date is Tuesday April 12.  15 others arrested at the protest faced no criminal charges, but Clark and Miles are charged with “Obstruction of Government Administration,” which could carry a sentence of a year at Rikers. Supporters, including the Stop Mass Incarceration Network are demanding the Queens District Attorney drop charges in the case, as the two were part of a non-violent protest.

The Call to Shut Down Rikers!

October 23, Non-Violent Direct Action as Part of #RiseUpOctober
#ShutDownRikers October 23 2016

Just 300 yards from the runways at LaGuardia Airport, just a few miles from a glistening city, an island sits dedicated to confinement, brutality, and torture of our youth and others. Human beings languish for weeks, months, sometimes years awaiting trial. Almost all Black or Latino. Many simply for lack of money for bail. Many locked down for weeks and months in solitary confinement.  more
