WHY IS HENNEPIN COUNTY SHERIFF RICH STANEK CARRYING OUT THE AGENDA OF RICH BANKS?

Rally & Intervene in Court on Rosemary Williams' Eviction Case
Wednesday, April 22nd
9:30am - Press Conference
10:30am - Eviction Summons Court hearing in Room A1700
Hennepin County Government Center
GMAC Mortgage LLC Vs. Rosemary Williams

Rosemary's home at 3138 Clinton Ave S is being foreclosed on and she is refusing to leave! The city has been cleaning up her block (where she has lived for over 50 years) in preparation for her eviction day. She recently received a notice of her court-date TAPED to her front door! At the hearing the judge is likely to give her an order to vacate her home. OR-especially if lots of supporters show up on Wednesday, the judge MAY grant her more time to renegotiate. But if the eviction order is given, join MN PPEHRC and others in helping Rosemary stay in her home on eviction-day!


WOODBURY CITY COUNCIL PROPOSES NASTY RESTRICTION ON FREE SPEECH
Attend City Council Meeting to Fight Back!
Wednesday, April 22  7:30 p.m.
8301 Valley Creek Rd, Woodbury
Carpool leaving 6:30 p.m. from Walker Church, 3104 16th Ave S, Minneapolis

On Wednesday, April 22, the Woodbury city council is expected to vote on an ordinance banning residential picketing.

This ordinance is being proposed in response to a half dozen pickets that happened at the homes of 3M executives this past summer because of 3M's connection to an animal testing company called Huntingdon Life Sciences.  The police themselves have stated that no laws were broken, the protesters were peaceful, and the protesters even cooperated with the police when asked to leave.

Please come out and help prevent another attack on First Amendment rights. A carpool will be leaving the Walker Church at 6:30 SHARP to be at the city council meeting (8301 Valley Creek Road) by 7:30.  If you have a car, please bring it with because it is likely we won't have enough cars.
--
If your not able to make it to the meeting, or even if you are, please call the Woodbury city council and voice your opposition on Wednesday, April 22 BEFORE 4:00PM.
