witness call: march 20 arrests
26 May 2005
Anyone who witnessed the circumstances of the arrest of Michael Long are
encouraged to step forward and contact the Anarchist Black Cross of Boston at
abc-boston(at)hush.com. We are particularly interested in hearing from
individuals who actually saw the police grab Long, and the circumstances and
events that took place beforehand.
WITNESS CALL
MARCH 20 ARRESTS
TRIAL DATE: JULY 11

On July 11, Michael Long will stand trial for assault and battery on a police
office, disturbing the peace, and resisting arrest. Long was arrested on March
20 during an event marking the anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq. The
arrest took place as the march approached Boston Common after circling the
Financial District.

Participants and observers may remember chaos erupting as the police pinched the
march with a motorcycle blockade on Tremont Street, forcing the march back onto
the sidewalk around Park Street Station. The police grabbed one individual,
claiming he had spit into the face of a police officer. This resulted in
numerous sections of the crowd rushing forward to witness the police chase.

Michael Long is described as tall, thin, with short blonde hair. He was arrested
after the initial incident slightly further down Tremont Street; witnesses may
remember cries of someone possibly having a gun (this turned out to be false)
at the time of the arrest.

Anyone who witnessed the circumstances of the arrest of Michael Long are
encouraged to step forward and contact the Anarchist Black Cross of Boston at
abc-boston(at)hush.com. We are particularly interested in hearing from
individuals who actually saw the police grab Long, and the circumstances and
events that took place beforehand.
