Thursday, September 15 · 1:00pm – 4:00p
Lindsay-Flanigan Courthouse, Room 5G
Colfax and Elati, downtown
Anti-Police Terror arrestee Amelia Nicol will have her discovery hearing
(postponed from August 22nd) on Thursday September 15th at 1:30pm in
courtroom 5G at the Lindsay-Flanigan Courthouse (the new courthouse at
Colfax and Elati, across from the new jail)
This discovery hearing will be an important hearing, where we expect that
all evidence that the prosecution has against Amelia will be presented
(any physical evidence, photos, video, pre-march surveillance, etc..) and
a judge will determine if the evidence is admissible at trial.
This hearing will be a good way to gauge the current case against Amelia.
Although the most serious of her charges were thrown out in June during a
pre-trial hearing, Amelia still faces a felony count of possession of
explosives, and three misdemeanor counts, including assault on a police
officer and resisting arrest.
Amelia faces several years in prison if convicted.
Please show your solidarity and support by attending this hearing if you
can. If you cannot attend, but still stand in solidarity with Amelia and
want to show some support, please mark your calendars and make plans now
to attend her trial, expected to convene October 4th at 8am.
Amelia really needs your support. Amelia’s fight is far from over, and
there is a real possibility of her being kidnapped from her community and
movement by the state to spend years in a prison cell… All while not a
single cop has done any time for the murders and beatings of local
residents.. and while some of those same cops have even gotten their jobs
handed back to them!
This issue is not over. It is not dead. While Marvin and so many others
are dead, we cannot let this die.
Please show your solidarity. That has been the weapon that has kept the
state unable to steal Amelia away. We need it still.
In solidarity, love, and struggle against police terrorism and the even
greater capitalist terror that the police protect!
