Victory! Charges against Leslie Feinberg dropped

Standard

June 8, 2012

Comrades Jess Sundin, member of FRSO and Committee to Stop FBI Repression, and Leslie Feinberg celebrate after all charges were dropped during Leslie’s arraignment on June 8, 2012.

Activists in Minneapolis report on today’s arraignment of trans activist and author Leslie Feinberg, arrested for participating in a protest against the racist, transphobic conviction and sentencing of CeCe McDonald:

“The state decided to not press ANY charges against Leslie. However at any time in the next 3 years they can decide to reopen the case and file misdemeanor charges. But the threat of felony charges is now passed. The campaign to win Freedom for CeCe McDonald will continue!”

Thanks everyone who called and put the pressure on Minneapolis prosecutors to drop the charges!
