Protest is not terrorism.

Jamie “Bork” Laughner and Joy Kohler are each scheduled to be tried later this month in Orleans Parish Criminal Court on trumped up felony charges of possessing a false explosive device. If convicted, they face up to five years in prison. The alleged “false explosive device” are the lockboxes that Jamie and Joy used on December 19, 2007 to attach themselves to B. W. Cooper apartment buildings scheduled to be demolished in the midst of New Orleans’ worst ever shortage of affordable housing. Both the defense and the prosecution agree that nobody was injured as a result of the protest and no explosives or other weapons were anywhere near the Cooper Two at the time of their arrest. It is also worth noting that Jamie and Joy took a vow a non-violence before occupying the vacant public housing buildings. On the other hand a police witness for the prosecution, NOPD bomb expert Todd Morrell, testified that “almost anything can be a false explosive device”. The purpose behind the prosecution of the Cooper Two is clearly to silence opposition to the ethnic and class cleansing now underway in New Orleans.

Those who wish to take a stand against political repression and ethnic cleansing in New Orleans are urged to attend the trials of Jamie and Joy at the time and place listed below

9am July 16, 2008 Trial of Farah Joy Kohler to be held in Orleans Parish Criminal Court E in the Orleans Criminal Court Building at Tulane and Broad streets.

9am July 17, 2008 Trial of Jamie “Bork” Loughner to be held in Orleans Parish Criminal Court E in the Orleans Criminal Court Building at Tulane and Broad streets.
