Upholding the Rights of RNC Protesters sign now

We, the people, hold in contempt the New York Police Department and the administration of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg for the inhumane, unconstitutional treatment of protesters during the Republic National Convention. We hold the above are guilty of:

1. Unlawful arrests of protesters (and innocent bystanders) involved in legal rallies and marches. Deceptive practices including rerouting marching paths, while pretending to act in good faith, in order to execute massive arrests.

2. Excessive force while conducting such arrests, including slamming heads into the pavement or walls, and unnecessary use of pepper spray,

3. Detaining hundreds of protesters without charges, or even reading their rights, and denying them access to legal counsel.

4. Denying detainees access to food, water, and necessary medical treatment.

5. Holding detainees in a chemically polluted space, resulting in chemical burns, allergic reactions, and unknown long-term effects.

6. Repeatedly and illegally defying judicial orders to release detainees.

7. Illegally refusing to return property of the protesters, such as bikes.

8. Arresting legal observers and aggression towards members of independent media.

It is imperative that the NYPD and the Mayor acknowledge the wrongfulness of their actions during the RNC. We cannot and will not accept our government acting in a way that violates our human rights and our Constitution. We affirm our rights of free speech and assembly, and our rights of habeas corpus.

We shall not submit to a police state. For when we allow our government to act against the law in order to suppress the voice of the people, we cease to be the Land of the Free.
