UPDATE: After being held for nearly 72 hours, all protesters were released thanks to your support. Most are being charged with gross misdemeanor riot, and one has been charged with felony second degree riot. Please donate for legal support for these freedom fighters.
46 protesters, including youth, union members, faith leaders of all creeds, and activists of all ages, races, and geographies, are being held in police custody on outrageous gross misdemeanor riot charges. Each is being held on a minimum of $1,500 bail for blocking traffic to demand justice, after being attacked indiscriminately by St. Paul Police and the State Patrol with tear gas, pepper spray, and rubber bullets. Meanwhile, the officer who killed Philando Castile in cold blood is on a taxpayer-sponsored paid vacation. We're partnering with Black Lives Matter Minneapolis to get these freedom fighters out of jail -- and we need your help.
We will not be intimidated. Donate now for this fight and all the future resistance fights to come. This is more than a moment, it's a movement.
