Asheville 11 Court Update

On Monday January 24 the eleven had yet another court appearance; which resulted in yet another continuance. The vagueness of the process left us somewhat in the dark as to the nature of this last court date. Was it going to be trial? Another continuance? It wasn’t until the day or two before that defendants learned that for some of them this would not to be their day in court. Not everyone was required to appear, though some did out of interest to disallow these proceedings to go on out wihout their watchful gaze. Others simply felt the need to sit by others who needed to be there.

The outcome of that day was a yet another trial date. April 11, 2011, almost a full year since their arrest, is set as trial for the eleven people arrested on May 1, 2010. It is unlikely that all eleven will go to trial that day, but at this point it seems that some will. This will be a huge trial for the region, and those wishing to attend are encouraged and welcomed. Keep in mind that this will be a chaotic time for those facing these charges and those closest to them. This should not discourage anyone from making the trip here, it is just something to keep in mind for a community lacking resources in the wake of such repression.

With that said, we hope to see you all there. And thank you for your continued support!
