Love Park 4: Court Reportback and Trial Date Set

On October 3rd, the Love Park 4 appeared in Philadelphia Municipal Court for their first court date. As expected – since they were just scheduled for a preliminary hearing and the courtroom was over packed as usual – not much happened. The prosecution passed some discovery to the defendants’ legal team and a trial date was set. Defendants are now scheduled for trial on December 13, 2007 in courtroom 1003 at the Criminal Justice Center in Center City Philadelphia. The Love Park 4 Defense Committee is encouraging friends, family and comrades to pack the courtroom that day to show their support and solidarity for the defendants.

Members of the Love Park 4 Defense Committee are confident that with the right resources, all of the anti-fascists arrested will be able to defeat these outrageous charges which could potentially result in tens of thousands of dollars in fines and years of jail time. The Defense Committee also reports that the defendants themselves are confident in their lawyers ability to help them beat the trumped up charges, and are currently proceeding towards trial in December with cautious optimism.

With that said, however, the Love Park 4 are still in need of your help. They do need the resources to win this legal battle and you can help right now!
