We are being illegally arrested for engaging in nonviolent civil disobedience as protected under the First Amendment right of the Constitution. We will not be coerced into submission, we are not going away, and we will not be silenced. Our voices will be heard. Arrestees are students, teachers, retirees, veterans, retail workers, independent business owners, parents, and grandparents. We are straights and gays, people of color, poor and middle class.
