ye gods, – Fox News does coverage of our trial last week.
We were tried for peacefully assembling in the Capitol on August 25th last year, the day the budget cuts went into effect for public workers statewide. Fox instead mostly shows footage of March 10th, 2011, when the Assembly initially passed Act 10. I was with dozens of others that morning trying to block their entry into the chambers – this was the first time state troopers & cops laid hands on people significantly, dragging and carrying people against our will.
August 25th was not the most recent time, and sure as hell isn’t the last, as long as this regime continues to pass bills that fuck people’s health and well-being.
