May Day Organizers Call for Help! ACLU Steps in.

The Richmond Police Department is seeking to impede the free speech of Richmond citizens once again. In response, the organizers of May Day RVA 2011 have called in the ACLU. The ACLU has filed for an injunction and the May Day organizers are asking for your support! The ACLU ‘s statement can be read here. and the Organizers call for support is below:

Update on May Day Lawsuit against Richmond Police
The hearing for this case will take place Tuesday, April 26 at 11:00 am at the U.S. District Court, 701 East Broad Street, in Judge Hudson’s courtroom.

I would like to request that all endorsing organizations and supporters please consider mobilizing your respective communities and create an overwhelming presence outside the court house in support of the lawsuit against the police. Bring signs, banners, and puppets!

This injunction if granted would mean that not only the May Day Coalition will be able to march unfettered by onerous fee’s in the future, but that no other organizations will have to fear such deterrents to their right to free speech and the right to assemble.
