Highland Park Passes Statement Supporting Rutgers 3

Highland park (the town where the rutgers 3 case was moved due to a conflict of interest with one of our lawyers) refused to vote on the antiwar resolution we brought to them tonight, but when faced with the importance of the impending Aug 5th court case for the RU 3.... they actually agreed to vote on one section of the resolution.

Last night the council voted:
RESOLVED, That the Council of Highland Park expresses concern that cases such as the “Rutgers 3” could violate Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Assembly

So we are taking it as a small victory and will be vigilant in ensuring that the rest of the antiwar resolution is passed and that another resolution introduced to de-federalize the NJ national guard is also voted on.
