Support for the Bellingham Four
[2012-11-27 message] To all Occupiers:
The legal battle continues for the people arrested during the Occupy Bellingham camp at Maritime Heritage Park by 40 police officers in riot gear. We are currently attempting to get the charges dropped by submitting various motions for dismissal. Our legal team feels that it would be beneficial if the prosecutor heard from members of the community in support of our First Amendments rights to be in the park. We would ask you to write a letter in support of dropping the charges against the four people arrested at the park. Your letter can be sent to:
Rick Petersen, Attorney-at-Law
City Attorney’s Office
210 Lottie Street
Bellingham, WA 98225. (His email address is rkpet...@cob.org.)
It would be great if he could hear from you by this Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012, which is the date of our next hearing (at 2:30 at the Municiple Court if you care to attend) ) but letters after that would also be greatly appreciated.
Thank you all for your continued support through this process.
Debbie Cantrell on behalf of the Bellingham Four.
