FERGUSON COP WHO KILLED MIKE BROWN WALKS FREE WITH NO CHARGES, WHILE GRANT NEWBURGER IS CHARGED WITH A FELONY FOR PROTESTING THIS OUTRAGEOUS DECISION.
Through this outrageous charge, the police and state behind them are trying to send a message that people should not resist police brutality and murder. Come to this hearing to have Grant's back and be part of clearly rejecting this message.
Grant Newburger is a revolutionary and has been a front-line fighter against police murder and brutality for over 20 years. He was arrested with 2 other people during last Wednesday's march in the Chicago Loop protesting the Ferguson grand jury decision. He and two other protesters had just stepped out into the intersection at State and Jackson with a large banner "Justice for Mike Brown" when a bike cop ran into the front of him and two cops knocked Grant down to the ground from behind and injured him.
Grant was charged with a serious felony aggravated battery causing great bodily harm to a police officer and yet the officer's arrest report and the prosecuter at the bond hearing clearly stated that the police officer had no injuries whatsoever. Impossible! There needs to be a political fight to demand that this bogus charge, and all the charges against the Ferguson protesters in Chicago and around the country, be dropped. The police must not be allowed to get away with this injustice.
If you believe in justice and oppose police terror, come to court Wednesday. Spread the word. Contribute funds for his defense. Volunteers are needed to make an on-line petition to drop the charges and to contribute in other ways to stop this attack.
DROP ALL THE CHARGES!
JUSTICE FOR MIKE BROWN and ALL VICTIMS of POLICE MURDER!
