Suvarna Ratnam was arrested on Oct. 17, 2020 at approximately 8:30 with a group of citizens who marched peacefully downtown. 
Sue is being kept as a political prisoner in Phoenix's 4th Ave precinct under false charges with no bond. Given Phoenix's history of holding Political Prisoners, we are concerned that Sue has now become the 5th. 

Sue was held separately from other march attendees after reminding others that the police forcing them to give DNA is illegal. 

"After finally seeing Sue, we noticed their eyes were extremely dilated and they expressed feeling nauseous and sick. "

The police are giving Sue the wrong doses of klonopin, as well as keeping their other medication. They are being denied crucial medical treatment as retaliation for knowing their rights. 

Sue is an incredible person who goes out of their way to work for their community and those around them.  

We want them home!

These funds will be used for a lawyer fund as Sue is being held without bond. After those are taken care of our goal is to keep her housing secure and provide funds for anything needed while incarcerated. 

We appreciate your support as her friends and family.
