The AM1090 Air America affiliate was sent this strange note from the WA State
Police and/or the Seattle Police stating that anyone on overpasses
with banners would be subject to arrest. They stated these laws;
WAC 468-66-020 RCW 9.66.010 RCW 9A.52.080
Here is that letter;
It's interesting to note that whether this letter is authentic
and whether the laws stated are applicable to tomorrow's action or not
- the WA State Patrol/Police has never enforced them on the people
who hold vigils and banner daily at the Fort Lewis overpass with
their pro-Bush and pro-war signs.
They also have never before enforced these 'laws' until this week!
THIS IS A DIRECT ATTEMPT to INTIMIDATE ALL OF US & IS A
VIOLATION OF OUR 1st AMENDMENT RIGHTS!
Will we cower in the face of this?
The Backbone Campaign here have already contacted a lawyer, they were
threatened with arrest earlier this week during their regular bannering they
do on Wednesday mornings. They were NOT given a choice of being
ticketed: they were told they would be taken straight to jail!
THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!
THE BACKBONE CAMPAIGN, WORLD CAN'T WAIT, AND THE NATIONAL LAWYERS GUILD
WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT IT IS LEGAL TO HOLD A BANNER WHILE
WALKING ON A HIGHWAY OVERPASS!
What we need is some outcry from people on the un-constitutional
behavior of the Police!
We have contacted the ACLU and they have given us the following advice:
Everyone needs to call the Office of Professional Accountability at:
And let them know that we intend to STAND UP FOR OUR RIGHTS!
That we will pursue every avenue should
our rights be infringed upon by the police.
We are asking people who can to act as observers and to
film and record any arrests that are attempted tomorrow!
We are truly living in a police state!!
WILL WE COWER IN THE FACE OF RIGHT WING
AND UN-CONSTITUTIONAL INTIMIDATION?
WE ARE GOING AHEAD WITH
That which you don't resist you will learn --or be forced --to accept!!
