Monday, November 10th Court Appearance: Please join the Hempstead 15 in court Monday, 8 am (case starts at 9 am) Nov. 10th, at the Nassau County District Court at 99 Main Street in Hempstead, NY.
From the Hempstead 15: Ten members of Iraq Veterans Against the War and five of our supporters who make up the Hempstead 15 will be arraigned for "disorderly conduct" at 9 a.m. We're asking our supporters to show up at 8. Following the hearing, members of the Hempstead 15 will be available for questions and general socializing.
We ask that all supporters continue to respect the non-violent and reconciliatory nature and intent of our organization, particularly by helping us spread messages surrounding dignity and medical treatment for our veterans and acknowledgement of their voices which deserve to be heard.
Thank you for all you've done, thank you for what you're doing, and thank you for making what's to come a reality. May we always find people uniting around the ideals of freedom, justice and democracy, in times of war and peace alike.
Thank you for moving forward with us, and we look forward to seeing you all at the courthouse! (NOTE: 8 AM Monday, Nov. 10th, at the Nassau County District Court at 99 Main Street in Hempstead, NY)
