Happy Birthday, Drop the Charges! Dance against the State!
On Tuesday, December 2nd, Susan Gaertner is holding a ritzy fundraiser for her 2010 DFL campaign for governor. It also happens to be her birthday. As the lead prosecutor for the 18 felony cases which stem from the RNC, including the cases of the RNC 8 (rnc8.org) and Dave Mahoney (helpdavemahoney.blogspot.com), let’s remind her of the political repercussions of trying these phony cases! If Susan Gaertner wants to continue carrying out this prosecution, we’ll ruin her campaign for governor.
And most importantly, we’re still here and still fighting, even after many of us experienced intense state repression in such a firsthand way at the RNC. Let’s continue having fun and keep our spirits high, while not forgetting what brought us here in the first place. We’ve been keeping solidarity going in the courts–lets carry it into the streets again and shake off the legal system’s icy grip on our community and the winter cold outta our booties!
A rally and dance party has been planned outside her fundraiser, starting at 4:30 on Tuesday, December 2nd. If you want the charges dropped for the 18 folks facing felonies, make it known to Susan and all her potential supporters that her political endeavors will never succeed with her prosecution of RNC arrestees on her record.
Come to the gates of the Minneapolis Club at the corner of 2nd Ave and 8th St in downtown Minneapolis at 4:30PM, TUESDAY DECEMBER 2 dressed warmly and ready to get down. Bring signs, noisemakers, and your loudest and dancing-est friends!
(And stay tuned for more actions to put the pressure on Gaertner to drop the charges!)
