Know Your Rights Training with nice folks from the East Atlanta Copwatch Group!

Tuesday January 4th at 7pm at the Wingnut (2005 Barton Avenue)

Free Training!

804 303 5449

The Wingnut will be hosting some Know Your Rights style workshops in the month of August. Anyone interested in helping to facilitate the workshops should contact the Wingnut. And if you want to attend please let us know!

In the mean time, here are some quick review points on your legal rights. Always a good thing to stay current on.

Also, don’t forget to let people know that the Supreme Court just ruled that cops do not have to tell you your Miranda Rights. So it is important that people involve their own Miranda Rights. Vocalize your right to remain silent and your desire to speak to a lawyer. Do not wait for the police to initiate that part of the conversation.

Here’s a few disclaimers for potential visitors of the Wingnut.  They aren’t meant to scare you off, just to make you aware of our situational reality.  They’ve been posted in the foyer of the house, but having them on the internet also is probably a good idea.

Disclaimer 1:
The house is under heavy police surveillance, and we are operating under the assumption that the house is bugged and all of our phones are tapped.

For this reason, it is IMPERATIVE that guests and visitors do not possess, do, or talk about ANYTHING illegal while on these premises.  This is for your safety as well as our own. (more…)
