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
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.
