(en) Germany, fau: Solidarity with the J20 defendants! - Solidarity with the US anti-fascists (de)

Date Sat, 30 Jun 2018 07:41:50 +0300

On 20 January, 2017, thousands of people travelled to Washington DC to protest Donald Trump's inauguration, and hundreds marched in an anti-capitalist, anti-fascist rally organized by Disrupt J20. Nearly 200 participants in the Disrupt J20 protest were charged with felony rioting, which would have seen them facing up to 60 years in prison for protesting. ---- The charges have been dropped against most of the J20 defendants, and it was recently revealed that federal prosecutors were withholding evidence from the defense. 44 defendants are still awaiting trial, and they need international support. The IWW North America sent out an international call for pickets at US embassies and strikes to raise the profile of the J20 trial on June 25th, which the FAU answered with a solidarity gathering in Berlin.

"We live in an era when fascists and white supremacists can attack us in the streets without legal consequence, but antifascists face over 60 years in prison for a demonstration. Do whatever you can to raise the profile of our courageous comrades who are facing down the forces of reaction." Was the message from the North American IWW General Executive Board.

No to Trump, no to fascism, solidarity with the J20 defendants!
