Call (651)266-8510 and tell Mayor Chris Coleman’s office that the city of St. Paul must hold police accountable for their actions and brutality during the RNC and that all charges against protesters be dropped.
Call (651)266-3222 and demand that Ramsey County Attorney Susan Gaertner drop the Felony charges against almost 2 dozen RNC protesters and that you are watching the “RNC 8″ case very closely. Demand that her office not prosecute protest organizers as “terrorists”.
Call City Attorney John Choi at (651)266-8710 and demand that all misdemeanor charges be dropped now! He has referred to RNC protesters as outsiders who wanted to “create mayhem.” Let him know the hundreds of Twin Cities residents arrested during the convention would probably disagree.
Please be polite, but firm. Remember that what you say will have an impact on everybody facing charges, and it could very easily have a negative impact if you are not careful.
Also, if you are interested in telling your elected officials in person what you thought about their actions during the RNC, you can check out our Political Events Calendar for upcoming possibilities! (Note: Events listed are not necessarily events that CRASS will be attending, but have fun anyway!)
