 NYC Anarchist May Be Imprisoned Tomorrow For Resisting A Grand Jury
Jerry’s contempt hearing is tomorrow, May 21st at 3:45 PM on the 20th floor of 500 Pearl Street.
We expect that he will be taken into custody by U.S. marshals tomorrow.
Because the hearing is public, we will be able to be in the courtroom with Jerry. Bring a photo ID if you will be going into the court house. No electronics are allowed and will be checked with security.
We suggest folks arrive 45 minutes to an hour early: security takes a while, and we want to show Jerry–and the feds–that we support him, and all grand jury resisters.
Bring banners or flyers. Spread this widely.
Resist state repression! Support Jerry! Support all political prisoners!

I’ll be there. Will you?

I was on the G-Train heading north through Brooklyn when the train abruptly stopped just before the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station. The conductor shut down the power of the train, and held us there for about 20 minutes. When we finally pulled into the station, a breathless woman entered my car. “A woman had a seizure and fell on the tracks!” she said, excitedly. “And a train was coming into the station! Luckily the driver noticed and slammed on the brakes.” She pulled out her phone to show just how close the train had come to hitting the woman. 
Supposedly, after the last few incidents, the MTA has been urging its conductors to be hyperaware when entering stations. Looks like a life was saved today by one conductor who took the warning to heart.

I was also there to witness this, on the southbound G. I didn’t see her fall but I saw the police lift the stretcher up off the tracks and carry her away. Some gossipy old man came into my car and announced a man, not a woman, had jumped in front of the C train, trying to get hit.

“We haven’t determined whether it was random or if there was some connection yet,” [chief police spokesman Paul J.] Browne said, “but there was nothing from what the witnesses could see to indicate that they knew each other and he did not, according to the witnesses, appear to realize that she was approaching.”

The woman, whom the police described as Hispanic, in her early 20s and heavyset, fled on Queens Boulevard and was being sought by all police officers in the area.

She was wearing a blue, white and gray ski jacket, the police said, and gray Nike sneakers. Outside the elevated station on Thursday night, multiple police vehicles gathered, and local residents braved frigid conditions to huddle on corners and discuss the act of violence in their midst.

We didn’t need a copycat incident. We already had one of these this month. One was enough.

"The city council in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, voted unanimously this week to create a buffer zone around the entrances and driveways to reproductive health clinics and medical facilities, stopping protesters from being closer than 20 feet to offices. Planned Parenthood had asked for the measure to prevent anti-abortion protesters from harassing patients and staff at its local clinic."

And the Harrisburg clinic has a reason to fear additional violence between protesters and people trying to get into the reproductive health clinic. In Oregon, an altercation between a woman and an anti-abortion protester at a Planned Parenthood clinic that does not even perform abortions led to a stabbing. And harassment from anti-abortion protesters forced one anti-abortion clinic in New York to stop providing services.

Officials in New York City are also pushing back against clinic harassment. The city has started a program to recruit and train clinic escorts who will assist women in passing the anti-abortion protesters and so-called sidewalk counselors outside of health care offices.

New York City: March against Stop and Frisk and other racist police abuses, June 17, 2012.

I was at this today! It was fucking rad. Some crazy old woman saw me from across the street and was so enraged by my rockin’ ACLU vest she started screaming at me about what a “piece of shit” I was and how I was “undermining America” until the cops pulled her away. Hilarious.

But yeah, fuck stop ‘n frisk for reals.
