Maile's case is finally going to trial. After the lynching charge was dropped, the DA is still moving forward with resisting arrest charges. We need to fill the court room with supporters to show the judge that the people stand against this intimidation and harassment of protesters. We demand all charges dropped NOW! Protesting against police terror is NOT a crime!

Show your support at Maile's court hearing on August 12th at the Sacramento County Courthouse (720 9th Street). We have not been told what time yet but the event page will be updated when we know. In the past, the hearings have been at 8am.

Last year, the Sacramento police outrageously charged ANSWER Coalition activist Maile Hampton, a young Black organizer, with felony “lynching.” After holding them initially on $100,000 bail, Maile was released but still facing the threat of four years in prison on false charges following an aggressive police disruption of a peaceful Black Lives Matter march in Sacramento. But we are fighting back!

The police and county DA falsely claim that Maile is guilty of obstructing justice. In fact it is the police who are guilty of obstructing justice, in this case and historically. These charges against Maile are in reality "revenge" charges against leading activists of the Black Lives Matter movement. We in the ANSWER Coalition, along with a wide network of endorsing organizations, are mobilizing to fight back against this police repression.

The story that the police and DA present is entirely different from the facts of what actually happened. In reality, on Jan. 18, a peaceful march was disrupted by police who wanted to shut it down because of its political content. The police violated the protestors’ right to free speech and arrested several people. The police were the aggressors, not the activists. The police obstructed justice, not the protestors.
