Unicorn Riot Reports Live From J20 Trial

Journalists with Unicorn Riot reported live from the J20 trial today, where it was revealed that police had plans to carry out a mass arrest before the kettle actually took place. The trial represents an unprecedented attempt by the State to criminalize protest and pressure almost 200 people mass into accepting deals via the threat of felony charges which would result in essentially life sentences: upwards of 60 years in prison.

Prosecutors with the US attorney’s office have noted that no one in the trial group of 8 people is actually believed to have been involved in the property destruction of corporate and bank windows, but are guilty of conspiracy based on the fact that they all wore black and chanted similar slogans.

Here’s Unicorn Riot’s coverage from today, which also saw a solidarity rally organized.
