Over the past two weeks, thirteen activists have been arrested and 
slapped with outrageous felony and misdemeanor charges for their defense 
of the Durham community against white supremacists, first in relation to 
the toppling of a Confederate statue in front the Durham courthouse on 
Aug. 14, and then for protesting in response to a planned Ku Klux Klan 
rally on Aug. 18. Most recently, three more activists were issued 
warrants on Aug. 28; two were arrested the day before.

Sheriff Andrews recently attempted unsuccessfully to prosecute activists 
with Inside-Outside Alliance for protest charges, and was exposed for 
his exaggerated attempts to target demonstrators. These arrests are 
clearly a form of retaliation against the movement at large.
