(en) US, Pittsburgh, Update on POG* demo - Support still needed for activists arrested in

Date Tue, 23 Aug 2005 10:40:57 +0300


We would like to thank everyone who has stood in solidarity with us
during these difficult times. Messages of support and solidarity have
been much appreciated by members of POG and those who were
arrested. At the same time that the severity of what occurred
necessitates our immediate action, we will not be deterred from
continuing our anti-war and counter-recruitment efforts, and larger
struggles for systemic change. Broad based actions against this war,
from education to direct action, must and will continue. Next week
we will be sending out information on upcoming events and actions
we hope you will consider participating in.

Update on those arrested and more info:

Everyone is out of jail! We remain in desperate need of money for legal
costs over the long haul ahead, and to repay money borrowed to pay
the bails of those arrested. You can donate through the link on our
website (www.organizepittsburgh.org).

Here is the status of those arrested and more detailed context of
what occurred with their arrests. It appears that video exists
disproving the vast majority of charges. We will update people on the
progress of charges, trials, and any lawsuits which arise as a result of
A20.

1: A male arrested (by undercovers on the sidewalk) is facing a
felony charge of Rioting To Prevent an Official Action,” as well
as charges of “Resisting Arrest,” “Failure to
Disperse,” and “Disorderly Conduct.” It has also come
out that the police used a tazer stun on him after he was in police
custody.

2: The minor grabbed off the sidewalk was issued citations for a
variety of offenses. The police were overheard calling her the
“Scum One,”apparently they had a problem with the way she
was dressed.

3: As for the woman who was tasered while on the ground (after
being pulled off the sidewalk): before she was tasered, a police officer
lifted up her glasses and directly shot her with pepper spray in the
eyes. She is facing charges of “Failure to disperse,”
“Obstructing a Passageway,” and “Obstructing Administration of Justice.”

4: A male arrested is facing charges of “Resisting Arrest,”
“Criminal Mischief of Personal Property,” “Disorderly Conduct,”
“Simple Assault,” “Harassment,” and
“Obstructing a Public Passageway.”

5: A male arrested on the sidewalk is facing charges of “Failure
to Disperse” and “Obstructing a Public Passageway.”

6: The women bitten by the dog was released from the hospital and
will be receiving a citation for “disorderly conduct.”
