Recently WeAreChange members have been viciously attacked by provocateurs, security staffing, and the NYPD for expressing their 1st amendment rights. These actions have led to multiple legal cases and WeAreChange deems these actions a direct assault on our organization and message. We are currently in the process of obtaining representation with a background in aggressive constitutional law, familiar with the corrupt courts system, able and willing to carry on to the end. We are not ignorant of the hurdles before us and the massive resources of our enemies. Physical assaults and battery merit aggressive legal action if only to set a prescient that WeAreChange is serious about protecting the constitutional rights of our members in face of such heinous allegations.
Our first priority is the criminal defense of Gary Talis, now facing trumped up and completely libel 3rd degree assault charges. Additionally, those individuals and/or organizations who willingly submit falsified testimony must be litigated in civil court for libel, slander, defamation of character, etc. Matt Lepacek is also facing charges for disorderly conduct for expressing his 1st amendment right to publicly question Laura Bush in the last minute of the event as she walked off stage, and Sabrina Rivera has a upcoming court date with a provocateur harasser from ground zero after being clearly caught on video with Sabrina Rivera and Luke Rudkowski. In the past we have missed opportunities to defend our selves due to financial limitations; this is no longer an option when faced with public persecution by slander and the very serious false assault charges pending against Gary Talis.
The legal defense will be substantial. We are establishing a WeAreChange defense fund for costs incurred throughout all current and future legal proceedings. Given these unfortunate circumstances, we also see an opportunity—there is a light at the end of the tunnel. We are determined to ensure these harmful provocateur attacks are properly exposed and will seize this opportunity to expose the media and police state corruption once again. Together we can fight back against this smear campaign, please donate today. Let’s make this case an example of what a small but determined group of people can do with truth on their side. WeAreChange is now a target of the global establishment therefore it is our responsibility to respond in full force. Regardless of the corruption level in the NYC court system there is much to be gained with or without victory at civil trial, but the criminal assault trial of Gary Talis must be defeated. href="mailto:email@example.com">firstname.lastname@example.org
