Solid Rarity: realities of living the revolution

The following is from the Facebook status of Leslie Feinberg, a writer and activist, who has been outspoken in word and action demanding that transwoman CeCe McDonald be set free.
LESLIE STATES “NOT GUILTY”–
JUDGE CONVICTS BUT STAYS SENTENCE

Leslie Feinberg declared she/ze was “not guilty” today (2/4/13) on a charge of 3rd degree gross misdemeanor (property damage) for spray painting “Free CeCe Now” on the walls and pillars of the courthouse/jail in Minneapolis.

Based on police reports of Leslie’s actions, which were not in dispute, the judge found Leslie “guilty,” and asked if she/ze had anything to say before sentencing.

Leslie said: “I am a revolutionary journalist and member of the National Writers Union, UAW Local 1981. I am not guilty of any wrongdoing. I delivered the people’s verdict on the jailhouse walls. The real crimes are going on behind the walls where CeCe McDonald is imprisoned.”
