September 6 Grand Jury in Minneapolis

August 22, 2007 at 4:35 am (Announcements and Advisories, Grand Juries)

It has just been made public that two people have been ordered to appear (subpoenaed) before a MN Grand Jury on Sept 6. They are, Anthony Wong and Brandon Elder. (UPDATE: There is a 3rd subpoena, though the identity of the person has not yet been made public.) More info here. It appears that neither is cooperating. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said of snitch Ian Wallace, who is known to be cooperating with federal authorities. Picture of the snitch is here.

Grand juries are the first step in sending down indictments- you are not allowed to have a lawyer present inside the room at a grand jury, and can be kept in jail for months at a time for refusing to testify.

If you know ANYONE who has been subpoenaed, or have heard anything about the situation, please share that information. There is nothing to be gained by keeping quiet, and a lot of people’s safety, comfort and freedom are on the line.

If you are approached by authorities, know that you DO NOT have to say anything, and that there are people and lawyers ready to support you. Even the most seemingly-innocuous statements can have negative effects and answering questions only opens you up to further harassment.

We will be planning a support rally of some sort in regards to the grand jury, so please watch our website for new information. In the meantime, please contact us at fightthegreenscare (a) riseup.net with questions and information, and especially if you need legal support.

Solidarity,

the Twin Cities Eco-Prisoner Support Committee
