Pay for stolen banners, citation, legal fees

On Saturday October 31, we held a vigil for the blood spilled due to inaction and incompetence on covid, climate, and cops, under the Tr*mp Administration. About 40 kids blocked traffic on Capitol Blvd between Bannock and Main Streets and poured blood (water mixed with nontoxic dye) on their clothes and the road. We brought two 12'X3' banners to the event. One was neon orange reading "BE THE CHANGE" with the XR logo emblazoned next to it. The other was neon yellow reading "TELL THE TRUTH." After 14 cop cars pulled up to our event, causing confusion and stress, the Idaho Liberty Dogs, a white supremacist organization, stole our banners which were laid in the middle of the street. After the action, we filed a police report of theft, but it is unlikely the banners will be returned. We payed $250 to print each of the banners (shown below).

One of our members, drove the wrong way on Capitol Blvd and parked her car in the street to help block it (shown below). She was cited a $90 ticket. Which we are requesting donations to assist with.

Extinction Rebellion Youth (XRY) Boise is a not-for-profit organization of middle and high school students using nonviolent direct action to call for systemic action on the climate crisis and ecological breakdown. We are led entirely by youth and are heavily restricted by budgeting. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.

Here are more photos of the action:
