The 5 Borough Anti-Repression Committee is hosting a benefit show to support NYC J20 defendants. Each trial is expected to be weeks long in Washington D.C and expensive as hell. Defendants will have to take time off work, find housing, and hire expert witnesses. An NYC based defendant is going to trial this December, with many more NY defendants to follow throughout 2018.
On January 20th, during massive protests at Trump’s inauguration, protestors, journalists, legal observers, and by-standers were subject to police misconduct by the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington DC. Hundreds of participants were chased with less than lethal munitions and cornered at the intersection of 12 and L street by police. Over 200 people now face at least 8 felony charges and 75 years in prison if convicted.

1:30PM – DOCUMENTARY: ALL OF ME
An intimate insight into the Patronas, a group of Mexican women who, every day since 1995, make food and toss it -still warm- to the migrants who travel atop the freight train The Beast as it makes it way to the U.S. This documentary is a personal diary that draws a border between the life they were given, and the life they chose. A brave and remarkable example of love and solidarity that contrasts with the violence of one of the cruelest stretches in the world for undocumented travelers.
Show starts at 3:00 PM
