The Brennan 3 who ended up being prosecuted by the US Government for speaking out against CIA Director's nomination hearing will come to the end of their trial on Monday, August 19 in Superior Court in Washington, DC.

They are asking the local DC area activist community to come to court as they are able to support them.

They have issued the following statement:

Three of the activists who were arrested at the Feb 7, 2013 Senate Confirmation Hearing of John Brennan as CIA Director are currently on trial in DC. The last trial day is likely to be Monday, Aug 19, or Tuesday at the latest;. Drone Czar, John Brennan, was ultimately confirmed to head the CIA, but our commitment for peace and justice is relentless and "SHALL NOT BE MOVED."

The three co-defendants, David Barrows, Joan Nicholson and Toby Blome are representing themselves pro se, with terrific assistance from their legal advisors, DC attorneys Ann Wilcox and Mark Goldstone. The co-defendants are arguing they did not have specific intent to disrupt the hearing, along with other arguments, Please join us at DC Superior Court, Courtroom 112 (Judge Patricia Broderick). The courthouse is at 500 Indiana Ave., NW, Washington DC.

For details of the CodePink anti-drone action that the defendants were part of, refer to the media links below.

Please hold us all in your thoughts,

Sincerely,

Toby Blome, Bay Area CodePink
