Free Jeremy Hammond! Come To His Sentencing Friday.

| Resist!


FREE #JeremyHammond! Pack the Courtroom on 11/15/13! Show Support for Jeremy at His Sentencing

As many of you know, Jeremy has pled guilty to one count of violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act for leaking documents from the private security firm StratFor. His sentencing will be held on Friday, November 15, at 10 AM.   He faces up to ten years in prison for a politically-motivated act of civil disobedience from which he personally gained nothing, and which he only hoped would make the world a better place.

Help fill the courtroom.  He and the judge need to see as many supporters as possible. Sentencing is always an emotional event, and it is incredibly encouraging for him to see friendly faces in the gallery.

Date and Time:  November 15, 2013 at 10:00 AM

Where:  United States Courthouse, Southern District of New York
500 Pearl Street
New York, NY 10007

For information on Jeremy and his case see this article by Chris Hedges, The Revolutionaries In Our Midst.  For more on Hammond click here.

He deserves much better than this…

    “Civil disobedience” is civil disobedience, because there may well be a price to be paid for one’s chosen method of speech.

    Ghandi, MLK, anti-war protesters, etc must know and accept that there could be a higher price to pay for conveying their message. I am certain MLK was not happy in a “Birmingham Jail,” but he didn’t complain or regret his actions either… A true measure of philosophical devotion?

    I am not sure if Mr. Hammond regrets his actions, but I do wonder if any protest in his behalf will diminish his original message? It is a fuzzy line that must be walked. His adherents want him freed but they must also maintain the original message/protest in such a way as to promote it, not undermine it.

    If you read the Hedges interview I think you will find no regrets from Hammond, and continued resistance in prison.

    If you are saying people should not show up in court to show their support, I could not disagree more. Gandhi used his resistance to build a movement. Movements need to not forget the people who put themselves on the line at great risk and let them know how much we appreciate their work. We should be there in support of his work, obviously not undermining it.

    Point taken,
    However, please re-read my final sentence… I am an advocate of free speech and pointed protest, but not throwing rocks. However, if you choose to “throw rocks” there may well be a price to pay as well as alienating those on the margins who could be your possible ally?


  • kevinzeese

    I agree with that point. But, no one here is advocating throwing rocks. Hammond did not throw rocks. Check out his statement at sentencing, pretty strong.
