Stuart Dunnings lll,

Drop all felony charges

    1. Petition by

      Michigan Coalition Against Tar Sands

The Kalamazoo River oil spill, which occurred in July 2010.... a six-foot break in the pipeline - resulted in the largest on-land oil spill in US history. On Monday morning, July 22, 2013, dedicated MI-CATS (Michigan Coalition Against Tar Sands) activists,with the moral and financial support of affected homeowners and others nationwide, took a courageous stand against the expansion of dirty Alberta tar sands oil at the Enbridge construction site directly across the street from their Stockbridge, Michigan pumping station. Arriving at 5:30 AM before the arrival of Enbridge employees working on pipeline 6B expansion, over 40 of our brothers and sisters in the struggle for clean alternatives gathered from the tri-state area to form soft blockades at two locations while a select few physically chained themselves to heavy machinery, the same machinery used to cut the landscape into a super highway for the massive flow of dirty fossil fuels by an industry bent on putting profit before planet and people. We applaud their courageous efforts, risking arrest and bodily injury to send this message to the fossil fuel barons.  Eleven courageous activists were jailed, all charges non-violent, ranging from alleged trespassing to alleged resisting and obstructing. The 4 individuals who locked down to machinery ( Lisa Lala Leggio,Barbara Carter,Will Lawrence,Vicci Hamlin ) are  being charged with a felony.  We ask you to recognize that this was an act of civil disobedience and not a crime worthy of a felony!

To:
Stuart Dunnings lll,, County Prosecutor of Mason,[ Ingham Co.] Michigan
Drop all felony charges

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF MICHIGAN VS CHRIS WAHMHOFF

      Please come out and support the notorious MI CATS skateboarder Chris Whamhoff as his lawyer files a motion to quash his charges.

      A motion to quash is a request to a court to render a previous decision of that court or a lower judicial body null or invalid.

      This is the last court date for Chris before before he goes to trial and an important event to get lots of folks out to show solidarity and support!

      In a democracy we need checks and balances against business ventures against the public interest. When all else fails, civil disobedience should be an option without fear of retribution.
