GRAND RAPIDS — Local activists with the People’s Alliance for Justice and Change are continuing their campaign against Representative Vern Ehlers of the US 3rd Congressional District, vowing to hold him accountable for supporting violations of international law.
On May 3rd, the group taped a mock trial titled The Trial of Vern Ehlers for broadcast on GRTV Cable Channel 25 in Grand Rapids.
Recently, the group completed a booklet titled The Trial of Vern Ehlers. The booklet contains the script from the mock trial, documentation of the statements within the trial, and a list of sources for those interested in additional information on violations of international law during the ongoing military actions in Iraq. The booklet, along with the original statement from people arrested on March 10th while attempting to enforce international law by arresting Representative Ehlers and broadcast times for the video production, are available online on a new section of the Media Mouse website, dedicated to collecting information about the ongoing campaign.
The activists arrested on March 10th are currently awaiting a jury trial in Grand Rapids.
