The time has come for the sentencing hearing of our comrade, Jeremy Hammond. We have been preparing ourselves for the last 20 months and on this day, we will join together in solidarity with Jeremy as he accepts the sentence to be handed down for his role in the hack of Stratfor, a private contracting firm.
We have planned the following events to show Jeremy that he will not be forgotten. If you are in the New York City area and would like to join us, we would love to have you. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach us on Twitter @Free_Hammond or on Facebook at Free Jeremy Hammond Support Network. If you are in need of hotel information, please feel free to DM our Twitter account on send a PM to the Facebook account listed.
11/14/2013: Thursday evening: We will meet at our traditional location, Jeremy’s Ale House for a meet and greet and a chance to make new contacts and friends. Jeremy’s Ale House has become our place to laugh and enjoy each other’s company since the onset of Jeremy’s case. It seems fitting that we gather there one last time. The address for Jeremy’s Ale House is 228 Front St, New York, NY 10038 which is about 4 blocks from the jail and courthouse. We will start to meet there between 7-8pm so bring a smile and have a beer with us. The food is excellent.
11/15/2013: 8am eastern time: Tweetstorm begins. Let’s show Jeremy Hammond some massive support. Here is the pastebin for this storm: http://pastebin.com/ZE6uTyRW
11/15/2013: Friday morning: We will begin to gather at Foley Square between 8:30am and 9:00am Foley Square is located directly across the street from the courthouse. The address to the courthouse is 500 Perl Street. Foley Square can be identified by a giant black sculpture.
We will begin to make our way to the courthouse at about 9:15am. When you arrive at the courthouse, please be aware that you will be required to turn over all electronic devices etc and we suggest that you password protect them. Once we arrive at the assigned courtroom, I ask that you be respectful of Jeremy’s mother and close friends that Jeremy has not seen in some time and allow them to sit in the front so that Jeremy can see them.
Following the sentencing hearing, we will walk back to Foley Square to hear statements from our speakers. Alexa O’Brien, Chris Hedges, Jay Leiderman and Douglas Lucas will be there to provide their perspectives on this case and other cases as well.
11/15/2013: Friday evening: The NY chapter of the ABC will be hosting a NOISE RALLY at the MCC which is located at 150 Park Row to show love to Jeremy Hammond. I ask that anyone who will be in NY, join together for this uplifting event and make some noise for Jeremy. You can follow the ABC on Twitter @NYABC or on Facebook at NYC Anarchist Black Cross.
The links to the livestreamers for this events will be the following:
