Brooklyn Bridge Legal Fund

Organized by: Brooklyn Bridge Legal Fund

THE STORY:

In December 2014, thousands of New Yorkers marched across the Brooklyn Bridge to protest police brutality. Some  were singled out by police, and received a range of trumped up charges. Some have pled, others have done jail time, and other cases are ongoing.

After being smeared in the press, hunted down, dragged through the bureaucracy and sent to jail, they thought they could move on, but now the cops from the bridge and their wives are suing the protestors in a civil suit. Given the complications of civil litigation, it’s impossible for some to find affordable representation. While it may cost tens of thousands in private legal expenses, they have no choice but to respond. And in order to fight back, they need your solidarity and support.

If you can contribute any amount, please consider offering a donation. If wielding the private legal apparatus to inflict debt on protestors becomes a common tactic, people need to know - so spread the word!
