Nov 17: Solidarity with Grand Jury Defiance Noise Demonstration
On Saturday, November 17, at 3:30pm there will be a noise demonstration in front of the SeaTac Federal Detention Center (S 200th St & 26th Ave S, Seatac, WA) in solidarity with imprisoned Grand Jury resisters Matt Duran and Katherine “Kteeo” Olejnik.
Bring banners, loud noise-makers, flyers, and whatever else could be useful. Please send this announcement to listserves and invite your friends.
Matt and Kteeo have been locked away inside the Detention Center since September 13 and September 27, respectively, for refusing to cooperate with a secret federal Grand Jury investigation targeting anarchists in the Pacific Northwest.
Noise demonstrations are meant to break the isolation of prison by breaking through the walls with the sounds of solidarity. In a very real way, this small gesture can remind those on the inside that they are not alone and that there are many of us out here who are fighting alongside them. Like other solidarity actions, this noise demo is meant to strengthen the resolve of the defiant, courageous rebels the state is trying to coerce into participating in their strategy of repression.
We also wish to acknowledge and send our love to all the other comrades whose lives have been thrown into turmoil as a result of this Grand Jury. Please know that we’re fighting for you, too.
This event is part of the Days of Solidarity with Grand Jury Resisters.
