The DA decided our "Riot" is actually a "Musical Presentation"
Today, Earthalujah! we celebrate a victory -- with an improbable turn of events. The New York District Attorney dropped charges of Riot and Menacing against me and Nehemiah. We still face charges of Trespass, but the threat of one year jail is gone. Upon viewing the actual evidence, the District Attorney decided our "Riot" is actually a "Musical Presentation." Well, the extinct Golden Toads who sang inside Chase that day …we are touched.
Our legal struggle continues. Our attorneys filed motions to dismiss all the Trespass charges in the interest of justice. Our next hearing is on February 27th, 2014.
Many of you gave money and signed the petition, which was presented in court on Monday. You are climate activists with us. Our New Year’s resolution to you, ourselves and our children (not to mention the life forms all around us) is to defend our First Amendment rights and expand our Earth Cry throughout the land.
