Capitol Lawn Presser TODAY 2:30 Demand Justice!


Coalition Holds Presser to “Demand Justice” for Endangerment and Assault of Its Members, Activists, Innocent Bystanders
Clint Tarver, David Speet join AFP-Michigan to denounce attack on tent

LANSING, Mich.—Grassroots activists, innocent bystanders, and coalition groups will gather on the south Capitol lawn today, Thursday, Dec. 13th, at 2:30 p.m., to denounce the endangerment, assault, and trampling on of their first amendment rights by union protestors. The group is demanding “justice” for the episode, which occurred on Tuesday around noon, in which union protestors tore down a tent even as people under the tent struggled to get out from underneath it.

“This goes beyond politics and even the issue of right-to-work,” said Scott Hagerstrom, state director of Americans for Prosperity-Michigan. “It wasn’t our tent; it was our first amendment rights that were trampled on by a mob of angry union protestors. We are calling on union leaders, Mayor Virg Bernero, and others to condemn this sort of violence and intimidation.”

The presser will feature compelling video footage of the event, and activists also hope to bring their tent back to the Capitol lawn for the news conference. Tarver will share his story.

    Has AFP, Mr. Tarver, or Mr. Crowder, filed formal complaint with Michigan State Police yet?

    Until then, this is just talk that The Left ignores…
