Update #3 on Amelia Nicole, Anti-Police Terror Prisoner Denver, CO by Denver Anarchist Black Cross
As Amelia’s next court date approaches, support efforts have started to solidify locally. We’ve been able to have fairly consistent telephone contact with Amelia over the last week. As it stands, Amelia has been moved to solitary confinement within the jail, caged in her cell for 23 hours each day, with one hour for phone calls, recreation, and any sort of co-mingling with other human beings.
Amelia has been receiving tons of mail from across the country, and is very appreciative of everyone who has written her. She has promised that as soon as her stamp and envelope package arrives (it was mailed by DABC over 9 days ago), she will write to every single person she has received a letter from.
Denver ABC will be hosting a press conference and rally outside of Denver DA Mitch Morrissey’s office on Wednesday June 8th at 2pm. If you are in the Denver area, your presence would be greatly helpful and appreciated. The address for the DA’s office is 201 W. Colfax, the Webb Building downtown.
Amelia has court again on Thursday June 9th at 8:30 am in courtroom 2100 at the Van Cise Simonet Detention Center at Colfax and Elati downtown. We’re asking supporters to pack the courtroom and make a visible presence outside with banners, signs, etc.
This next hearing will be a hearing on bond (though Amelia has demanded to not be bonded out) and also should be a hearing where the prosecution will present their initial evidence and case to the judge. This could be a hearing where charges would be added or dropped, or where the judge could dismiss the case if the prosecution does not offer enough evidence. We’ll keep our fingers crossed, although we know that the courtroom is the weakest venue for justice that we have.
The police are at war with the people. It’s time for the people to be at war with the police.
It has been seven months since the murder of Marvin Booker and there has been a resurgence of a movement to combat police terror. As we ask questions of where this movement can go from here, we must also come to an understanding of what it is we're fighting against.
Join panelists from a variety of movement backgrounds and experiences in a discussion of the role of policing and imprisonment in our society and who these forms of social control benefit and why.
