By Lindsey Wainwright, an Occupy Hartford Protestor:
“Last week I went to community court and refused to take community service on the basis that I am not guilty of either of these charges. My case is being sent to trial by jury. The pretrial will take place on May 22nd at 9 am at 80 Washington Street in Hartford, CT. Witnesses who were involved in the action will be called to testify on my behalf. Their presence is especially important considering that my arresting officer lied in his report, claiming that I resisted arrest.”
On Tuesday, May 22, Please join us at court in solidarity with Lindsey Wainwright to send a clear message that arresting citizens for legally filming in public IS AGAINST THE LAW and will not be tolerated.
