Richmond Copwatcher and member of the Wingnut Anarchist Collective, Mo Karn, was detained, arrested, and ticketed in May while Copwatching for standing on the sidewalk of Barton Avenue.

You can read more about the original incident here: http://wingnutrva.org/2012/05/17/first-richmond-copwatch-ticket-for-standing-on-the-sidewalk/

The arraignment was on May 31st, and a court date was set for July 31st.

Please come out to support Mo and Richmond Copwatch, and to stand up to bully cops, on July 31st at 11am in Judge Cheeks’ court room at 920 Hull St in the Manchester Court Building.

You can’t bring cell phones, weapons, food, etc., but you CAN bring a sketchpad and pencil to draw and record the court proceedings. We ask that you do so.

The Wingnut, as you may know, does a weekly trash cleanup, alternating between Barton and North avenues. The Wingnut has officially adopted these spots, and now we have the street signs to prove it. Corner of Poe and Barton and corner of North and Battery. Woo!

Pictures of the other sign we now have after the jump!

If you live on Barton Avenue or  in the surrounding area, just to let you know, The Wingnut Collective will be doing a litter cleanup on Sunday May 23rd from 9am until we are finished. Our focus will be the 2000- 2400 blocks of Barton Avenue. We have 15 orange vests and 15 trash picker uppers that we got from Darlene Mallory with the Clean City Commission.

Please meet us out front of the Wingnut at 9am on Sunday the 23rd. If you have an extra trashbag or two to bring that would be awesome!
