"COINTELPRO 101" Film Screening
RNC 8 Event Series
Help us make this a time of movement building and solidarity!
Join the RNC 8 Defense Committee and an array of community organizations for six events coinciding with the trial of the final four RNC 8 defendants. Events will begin with dinner and a brief update on the trial, followed by different content each week. Half of proceeds will go to the RNC 8 defense fund, and half will be donated to rotating political projects.
Please note that the event series will proceed even if our demands are met and all the remaining charges are dropped before trial.
