Like thousands of others from around the country, Chris traveled to Chicago this May and attended the anti-NATO protests.
In a demonstration on Sunday evening, Chris was arrested along with several others in a barrage of police violence. In keeping with a precedent which had been set in the previous days, the City of Chicago is using Chris’ political beliefs as an excuse to set his bail at
$250,000 $100,000 (reduced from initial cost).
He is being charged with trumped up charges of “aggravated battery on a police officer.” In light of all of this, we need to raise
$25,000 $10,000 simply to get Chris free. Friends and loved ones from Atlanta are doing our best to coordinate the much-needed support for Chris.
More information will be coming soon, including an address to write Chris at, how to plug into the support committee, and fundraisers/demonstrations in solidarity with a loving friend.
For total freedom!
