headline for videographer event
let's get this PARTY started right!
1741 N Western Ave (the former Acme Arts)

A high-stakes trial is approaching in Chicago, August 24. The prosecution, with the active collaboration of some "ethical humanists," wants to put a volunteer videographer in jail for videotaping a statement by Sunsara Taylor at the Ethical Humanist Society of Chicago (EHSC) objecting to her being "disinvited" to speak at ESHC last Nov. 1. The videographer faces a maximum sentence of almost three years in jail on charges of criminal trespass, resisting arrest, and simple battery, for allegedly "striking" the undercover cop in the chest, as he was being dragged, beaten and maced. As is typical in cases of police brutality and unjust arrest, the false charges are piled on as "cover charges." ("High-Stakes Trial Approaching").

Come to this kick ass end of the summer party...and find out more about this important case. Join us for great music, delicious food (cash bar) and an array of video clips. Bring some friends and meet others for a night of fun. Your support is critical to defeating these truly outrageous charges.
After being beaten and maced by Skokie police inside the Ethical Humanist Society of Chicago, the videographer is hustled out of the building in handcuffs.
