Support the Hempstead 15 on November 10
You’ve read the testimonies:
You’ve called the campaigns and demanded answers.
Once again, it’s time to assemble. Please join the Hempstead 15 in court Monday, Nov. 10th, at the Nassau County District Court at 99 Main Street in Hempstead, NY.
Ten members of Iraq Veterans Against the War and five of our supporters who make up the Hempstead 15 will be arraigned for “disorderly conduct” at 9 a.m. We’re asking our supporters to show up at 8. Following the hearing, members of the Hempstead 15 will be available for questions and general socializing.
We ask that all supporters continue to respect the non-violent and reconciliatory nature and intent of our organization, particularly by helping us spread messages surrounding dignity and medical treatment for our veterans and acknowledgement of their voices which deserve to be heard.
As well, we ask that you sign the following petition condemning the trampling of Nick Morgan and others at the Oct. 15th demonstration which will be presented to the courts on the day of our arraignment.http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/justicefornick/ As well, please donate funds to help cover Nick’s medical bills at ivaw.org.
Thank you for all you’ve done, thank you for what you’re doing, and thank you for making what’s to come a reality. May we always find people uniting around the ideals of freedom, justice and democracy, in times of war and peace alike.
Thank you for moving forward with us, and we look forward to seeing you all at the courthouse!
