(please note: this is a proclamation for people arrested on the night of Troy Davis’ death, from Atlanta to Jackson. These people and their actions were outside the realm of this GSPHE as an organization)
Thanks to all of you for your financial contributions for the arrested on the night of Troy Davis’ murder on September 22. It is in times of crisis when we realize we must have unwavering support for each other, and everyone deeply appreciates the help received from the Atlanta community.
The funds gathered through our PayPal account, the fundraiser party, and other donations given throughout the week paid for bail for those arrested. The charges are obstruction of a police officer, wearing a mask to conceal identification, and simple battery. All three charges are misdemeanors.
However, those arrested need support in the coming months in regards to a successful defense. The rest of the amount will be spent on other legal/court fees, and the court date and details of the finances are still pending.
We will keep you informed as more details emerge. Thank you for your continued support.
