Long Beach May Day Legal Support Meeting Summary

by Siu Hin Lee (posted by IMC LA) Friday, Jul. 13, 2001 at 5:04 PM

50+ people attended the meeting in support of the Long Beach May Day demonstrators, many of whom were arrested. Contact information for support is included. A march and vigil on July 24th is scheduled.

There were around 50+ people attend the meeting, include May Day Long Beach

arrestees, ACLU, Long Beach Peace Action Network, Independent Media Center

and many local concern activists.

Most Long Beach activists who attend the meetings are relative old and very

experienced activists and they were outraged by what city of Long Beach, Long

Beach Police Department, local media and Long Beach City council had been

attacking the youth activists who march on May Day.

We had a long discuses including legal strategy, local supports and

ideological debate. One hand the May Day arrestees were happy that THERE ARE

GROUP OF LONG BEACH ACTIVISTS willing to supports them; however, on the other

hand, the youth activists also raised their concern on power dynamics and

lecturing too much from some of the old activists.

The meeting decided to call for a march and vigil on Tuesday, July 24th on

Long Beach to support the on going court case (location: TBA), establish work

groups to support the campaign and issue a joint statement to support May Day
