Drop All the Charges!
Pack the Court House, January 27, 2016, 8am Press Conference
9AM trial starts. Manhattan Criminal Court;100 Centre Street
Noche Diaz, year after year, over and over, is someone the NYPD has harassed, threatened, arrested, and slammed with charges after charges. On January 27, 2016 he will go on trial on four criminal misdemeanor charges stemming from two separate arrests: August 14, 2014, after a march through the streets of NYC days after Michael Brown was murdered in Ferguson; and Nov. 25, 2014, the day after a grand jury refused to indict Michael Brown's killer, he was arrested again at a march protesting the non-indictment, just shortly after NYPD theatened him saying, "I know you, you already have a case, you better go home cuz when we get you ain't going nowhere for a long time, we're gonna put you away. We already got you for the same thing before."
This is why Noche cannot and will not stand alone. We will not let them take our leaders. We will not let them criminalize people who stand up to police murder and terror.
