August 30: National Call-In Day: Stop Durham Witchhunt! Drop the Charges!

Hosted by International Action Center

Call Sheriff Mike Andrews and demand that he end the witchhunt against activists involved in fighting white supremacy!

Call Durham, N.C., Sheriff Andrews’ office at (919) 560-0897 and demand:
– Stop the witchhunt on activists protesting white supremacy
– Drop the charges against those already arrested

Over the past two weeks, thirteen activists have been arrested and slapped with outrageous felony and misdemeanor charges for their defense of the Durham community against white supremacists, first in relation to the toppling of a Confederate statue in front the Durham courthouse on Aug. 14, and then for protesting in response to a planned Ku Klux Klan rally on Aug. 18. Most recently, three more activists were issued warrants on Aug. 28; two were arrested the day before.

Sheriff Andrews recently attempted unsuccessfully to prosecute activists with Inside-Outside Alliance for protest charges, and was exposed for his exaggerated attempts to target demonstrators. These arrests are clearly a form of retaliation against the movement at large.
