PLEASE FORWARD THIS IMMEDIATELY TO ALL CONCERNED CITIZENS OF THE TWIN CITIES AND BEYOND

We citizens of the Twin Cities of Minnesota do not support violence to property or person done by anarchists, punks, petty criminals or agent provocateurs, but they are by no means the only ones who have been violating the law in the Twin Cities in and around the Republican National Convention this week and they represent a minute portion of those detained by law enforcement over the past few days.

 

The pervasive lawlessness and Bull Conner-esque preemptive violence by riot police against peaceful protesters in Saint Paul and preemptive assault, search & seizure on independent journalists in both Minneapolis and Saint Paul demands immediate response by the leaders of our two cities.

IMMEDIATELY, RESPECTFULLY AND PEACEFULLY contact each of these offices in person (best) or by phone and/or FAX demanding:

An immediate joint Town Hall meeting to call law enforcement to account for their actions and to insist upon:

2). The immediate release of all peacefully protesting detainees and citizen journalists being held in Ramsey County.
