Court proceedings continued today for Gus Ganley, with the completion of jury selection. The start of the trial was delayed because the police officers who will be witnesses for the prosecution were suddenly not available to testify. The trial WILL begin tomorrow, Wednesday, April 9th with opening statements, and the prosecution will call their witnesses.
Don’t let the city and the police get away with scapegoating the remaining three people who still face charges! Supporters are welcome to attend Gus’ trial to show their solidarity as he stands up for what is right. Your donations are also EXTREMELY helpful to help cover the costs of Gus’ defense.
To enter the court room you must pass through the security checkpoint. The Hennepin County Government Center is located at 300 South Sixth Street, Minneapolis, MN 55487. The proceedings will begin at approx 9:30 AM in room 953 and continue throughout the day until 4:30 PM. If in doubt, ask at the information desk where to find the trial of Augustin Ganley. Visible food and drink is not allowed in the court room and all supporters will have to pass through a metal detector. While in court, supporters must remain silent and will not be allowed to carry signs through the security station; the strength of our collective presence will send the message we need to send.
Note: Gus’ full trial will most likely last several days and you may attend as much of it as you are able. There will be no proceedings on Thursday, April 10th. If you cannot attend this important trial, please consider donating money using the button to your right.
