One of the people arrested on a felony charge the night of N30 is going to
be arraigned tomorrow
We need to make sure that there is community support in the courtroom to
show the city that their treatment of protesters is unacceptable.

I'm sure most of you know that Thursday night a group of about 200
protesters were downtown, peacefully marching.  They were in the process of
organizing a route out of downtown to end the march.  Some organizers were
in contact with police to communicate the protesters desire to end the
demonstration, when they as well as many bystanders were boxed in and all
were arrested- mostly for failure to disperse-?!

A few individuals are facing felony charges and need to be supported, the
police and the city have over-reacted to a mass protest, again.

The arraignment will be at the Public Safety Building downtown- 2 blocks
north of 3rd and Yesler in Courtroom 1
at 2:30 tomorrow (tuesday) afternooon

Come on down,
Annie

THREE CHARGED WITH ASSAULTS AT WTO ANNIVERSARY PROTEST

By Florangela Davila

Seattle Union Record, Tuesday,  Dec. 6,  2000

Jeremiah Jones, 20, of Edmonds, leaves a King County courtroom after being
charged with assault on a Seattle police officer during last Thursday's WTO
anniversary protest.

King County prosecutors filed charges Tuesday against three people arrested
for allegedly assaulting police officers during last Thursday's
demonstrations marking the anniversary of the World Trade Organization
conference in Seattle.

Jeremiah Jones, of Edmonds, was charged with second-degree assault for
allegedly throwing items from his backpack and injuring a Seattle police
captain when the otherwise peaceful demonstrations turned rowdy Thursday
night.

Capt.  Ron Mochizuki, who commands the Police Department's Metropolitan
Section, suffered a serious eye injury when he was hit by a flying object.
The full extent of his injury won't be known for a while.

The captain was injured about 8 p.m.  as he stood among other uniformed
police officers on the northwest corner of Fourth Avenue and Pine Street.

According to a police report, a plainclothes officer spotted a man -
allegedly Jones - acting suspiciously.  The man, who was wearing goggles and
a bandanna and carrying a backpack, allegedly ran through the throng of
people, pulled an object from his bag and threw it at Mochizuki, who fell to
the ground.

The right lens of Mochizuki's glasses was shattered and blood streamed from
his eye.

Plainclothes officers quickly moved to arrest the man after he threw another
object toward another officer, according to the report.

William Blansett, 35, of Seattle, was charged Tuesday with assaulting police
after he was ordered away from a police vehicle.  Prosecutors say that when
police tried to arrest him, he kicked one officer several times, grabbed at
a second officer's face, and struck a third officer in the groin.  He was
charged with third-degree assault.

Sadiq Misallati, 18, of Seattle was charged with third-degree assault for
allegedly lighting a firecracker that was thrown at a line of police
officers, according to charging papers.

All three men are scheduled to be arraigned in King County Superior Court on
Thursday.

When she's not on strike, Florangela Davila is a reporter for The Seattle
Times.
