Come to the Hearing this Friday for 4 Arrested Queer Rising Members

By Father Tony

UPDATE: Friday 1PM, The four men arrested last week for demonstrating at the New York City Marriage License Bureau are free. The DA offered them ACD (adjournment in contemplation of dismissal) which is a loose 6-month probation.

I received an email with the following text. (It refers to the protest in which QNY's Justin Elzie was arrested.)

We are asking that if at all possible you attend the hearing in front of the judge this Friday, February 19th at 11AM (Note: the time has been moved from 9:30 to 11) for the 4 Queer Rising members who were arrested in last week's civil disobedience action. It is important we have strong representation from the community and our group at this hearing. The more people there - the better! 

The address for the hearing is: 100 Centre St., Part A, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10013.

Please, pass this word on to as many people as you know and ask them to attend and forward to people who live in the New York City area.

This is a huge need - please help if you can.

Thank you.
