End The Lie
In an apparent case of an organizer of a major protest being targeted by
police, Kristen “Krissi” Jones, an organizer of the Ann Arbor, Michigan
March Against Monsanto, was arrested for using amplified sound in a public park on May 25, 2013.
Jones maintains that she did no such thing and says that fifteen other
people used a bullhorn in Hanover Park that day but were neither
harassed nor arrested.
The individuals organizing this particular March Against Monsanto protest – one of many across the country and the world – paid around $1,500 for a permit for the protest but were denied the night before it was scheduled.
Yet the arrest was not made due to the lack of a permit and the protest was not shut down by police.
