The Lafayette Eight Dismissal Hearing

The case of the Lafayette Eight traces back to an arrest date of April 2004
during a community clean up drive organized by Homes Not Jails. For over a year
now, the organizers on trial have been in and out of court for pretrial after
pretrial. The state prosecutor has repeatedly refused to comply with full
discovery, and has even made such outlandish claims as questioning the
citizenship status of the defendants, and claiming an anarchist exception to
due process.

The Lafayette legal council has fought tooth and nail for a dismissal hearing.
Finally after months of legal struggle, the hearing was granted. Immediately
however, the state began to fight to postpone the hearing. After the state
succeeded in postponing the hearing once, the hearing was again postponed due
to asbestos removal in the courthouse.

Now, we are finally going to have our hearing that we have fought for and waited
for.

The remaining six defendants from the Lafayette Eight will appear before
Cambridge District Court tomorrow morning.

Please come and show your support.
