Defense Fund for the Fellow Workers in Indianapolis

Organized by: Central Secretary-Treasurer

Central's Photo

THE STORY:

Three members of the Industrial Workers of the World and the IWW General Defense Committee were arrested after police aggression during an anti-Trump demonstration in Indianapolis. They are facing charges ranging from misdemeanors to felonies and legal costs are rapidly increasing. They are asking for help to cover attorney costs.

A total of seven people were arrested at the anti-Trump demonstration after police overreacted to civil disobedience and charged on horseback through the crowd of people in the street and into the crowds on the sidewalk before deploying pepper balls, rubber bullets and pepper spray. Each of the demonstrators who were arrested now face misdemeanors and/or felonies charges, and the media and police are trying to cast the Wobblies as agitators and provocateurs. Our three members are all very involved in left organizing to support LGBT+ rights, Black Lives Matter and IWW Incarcerated Worker’s Organizing Committee’s support of incarcerated workers.

One fellow worker, a transgender person, in addition to being detained in the men’s processing center, was repeatedly deadnamed and dehumanized by local media and employees of the state. We are asking for help with their legal expenses, because their community needs them actively engaged in our causes instead of in prison.
