VICTORY! Charges against Leslie Feinberg dropped
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!
Minneapolis: Comrades Jess Sundin and Leslie Feinberg celebrate after all charges were dropped during Leslie’s arraignment on June 8, 2012.
Feinberg was targeted for arrest while protesting the racist, anti-trans conviction and sentencing of CeCe McDonald; Sundin is one of the activists targeted by the FBI in 2010 and a leader of the Committee to Stop FBI Repression.
