I received this from Not IN Our Name in case any one is interested
On Tuesday, January 10th, 2006 at 9:30 a.m. the 18 grannies of the
Granny Peace Brigade will appear at Criminal Court in connection with their
October 17th action at the Times Square Recruiting Center. The
Grannies, many of whom have maintained a "Bring the Troops Home" vigil for two
years on Fifth Avenue, attempted to enlist but locked doors prevented
them from entering the recruiting center, whereupon they sat down on the
sidewalk. The police then arrested them and they were put into wagons,
handcuffed (in back).
Among the eighteen is Molly Klopot, longtime NION supporter and
activist for peace and justice issues, who at 86 is not the oldest granny.
Another woman is 90.
Come and join with others at their court appearance. Let’s demonstrate
our support for these courageous women, who already spent jail time
when they were booked in October,
not to mention their many hours vigilling on Wednesdays for the past
Norman Siegel is representing them and the courtroom will be large
enough for you to attend. Mark your calendar.
TIME: 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, January 10
PLACE: Criminal Court at 100 Centre Street (Leonard is the cross
Plan to come early as security lines are invariably long.
