Below is a script to follow when you call.
“Hello my name is Miguel Gomez, and I just sent email asking that you not charge Matthew Pfeiffer with contempt, release Matt Duran, and Kteeo Olejnik from prison and end the investigation. It is clear that the US Attorney’s office is persecuting political dissent. It is despicable that the US Attorney and the FBI are harassing and intimating people for their political beliefs. I demand that you release everyone you have declared in contempt so far and force US attorney Jenny Durkan to end the investigation. Thank you for your time.”
If someone answers the phone and tries to put you through to voicemail, insist that they take your message instead of putting you through to voicemail.
3) Please send CAPR a message at email@example.com, to let us know that you sent the message and what response you received when you called.
End the Grand Jury Investigation of the Anarchist Movement
To: Judge Richard Jones
Honorable Judge Jones:
I am writing to add my voice to the hundreds of organizations and thousands of individuals who have telephoned you, written and signed declarations, and demonstrated in cities around the country demanding that Matthew Pfeiffer not be held in contempt, the release of Kteeo Olejnik and Matt Duran from prison and end to the grand jury witch-hunt of anarchists and aligned activists in the Pacific Northwest.
This case clearly shows that the US Attorney’s office is persecuting political dissent. It is despicable that the US Attorney and the FBI are harassing and intimating this group of people for their political beliefs. I demand that the grand jury investigation be ended immediately, that the governments repression of social movements stop, that those jailed for their refusal to testify be released, and that any items seized in the raids be returned to their rightful owners.
