Postal Defenders Case Dismissed!
The “postal defenders” won a reprieve on Halloween. County Judge Karin Immergut dismissed criminal charges in a civil disobedience protest case which was over two years old, saying the defendants’ constitutional right to a speedy trial had been violated. The protesters immediately turned from celebrating their victory to organizing for a Veteran’s Day, November 11th action, calling on the Postmaster General to halt the scheduled closure of half the nation’s remaining mail processing plants and retain existing delivery standards, rather than delay America’s mail. The rally, which will also honor veterans’ involvement with the postal service, is slated for noon at Portland’s Waterfront Park. http://www.ThePortlandAlliance.org/postaldefenders
