Philadelphia civil suits.

Today I signed a contract with legal counsel for the civil suit against the city of philadelphia that I, and the seventy others arrested at the puppet warehouse during the republican national convention, will be filing on august 1st, the one-year anniversary of our arrest. There's a press conference planned.

but mostly, I just see this as the long-awaited start of the circle closing. justice moves slowly, but R2K legal has on over 95% of its cases now, and not one felony defendant has been convicted at trial, and not oneof us has gone to jail. out of hundreds of cases.

now's the time to put the shoe on the other foot and bring the Iron Fist of Accountability into the legal picture. this is how our system is supposed to work: not all abuses will be prevented, but all will be requited. it's not clear that it actually always works this way, but here's to hoping.
