When: Tuesday, September 3, 2pm
Where: Cook County Criminal Court House, 2650 South California Avenue, Room 303
The NATO 3 (Brent Betterly, Jared Chase, and Brian Jacob Church) have another status hearing in front of Judge Thaddeus Wilson. This will be a status hearing on pre-trial issues and the prosecutors will take pictures of the defendants’ tattoos after the hearing. The three imprisoned activists have been held for more than a year at Cook County Jail in Chicago since the NATO summit demonstrations of 2012. Following a raid by the FBI and the Chicago Police Department, these three protesters were arrested and charged to intimidate anti-war protest and violently silence dissent against the NATO war-machine.
Remember, the Cook County Criminal Court does not allow cell phones, other electronic devices, lighters, and a handful of other items into the building, so check http://www.cookcountycourt.org/HOME/CellPhoneElectronicDeviceBan.aspx. We also ask that supporters wear yellow as the NATO 3 are forced to wear yellow jumpsuits during their confinement.
