As many of you are aware, the man you see in the right side of the photograph in the red helmet is Alexander Dial (trending on Twitter as #betacuck4lyfe), a protestor who was defending Portland, Oregon along with a large group of local citizens against SPLC-designated hate groups who had invaded the downtown area without permits in order to spread their rhetoric of intolerance. Unfortunately, the Portland Police arrested Alexander during this demonstration and have chosen to criminally prosecute him. These are serious charges and he needs your help now! Alexander has no criminal record, a long history of activism, and he is in serious legal jeopardy as a result of the nature of this case's political charge. Take a stand with those who stand up for their communities and donate to his defense fund now. These hate groups are emboldened under the current American Administration and we need all the community defenders we can. We will not be intimidated. *** Any money donated that ends up being extraneous will be passed along as a donation to the National Lawyers Guild in order to continue the fight to protect human and civil liberties. This was formerly to go to the ACLU, but in light of learning of their defense of fascism in America, it has been updated*** This campaign is created by Alexander Dial of Portland, Oregon, and the donations are intended to go toward legal fees and/or penalties associated with these proceedings only. Any money raised from this campaign will be withdrawn ONLY for his legal defense in this specific case. Transparency is very important to him. Any extra money donated that is not spent as described above will be donated to the NLG without exception. None of the money raised is to be spent on anything not directly related to legal fees or penalties associated with this case.
