Activists urge Unite the Right counter-protesters to resist grand jury summons

Left-wing activists are encouraging Unite the Right counter-protesters who have been subpoenaed to appear before a federal grand jury to not comply with the summons.

At a Wednesday morning protest outside the federal courthouse in Charlottesville, approximately two dozen people stood behind a large banner that referred to the alleged deliberations of the grand jury as a “witch hunt.”

Star Peterson, who was struck in the Aug. 12 car attack near the intersection of Fourth Street Southeast and East Water Street, said she has been subpoenaed to appear before the grand jury.

“I will not be bullied,” she said.

The attack resulted in the death of counter-protester Heather Heyer, 32, and scores of injuries. Members of the activist collective Solidarity Cville said they are alarmed that Peterson and others have been summoned to appear before the jury, and believe that their testimony could be used against the anti-racist activists who protested the white nationalist rally this summer.

1. I wish I knew what was true here.

I've seen the same said for the Unite the Right people, that they shouldn't give information. Without grand jury testimony I doubt any more indictments for the white supremacists will be issued. Of course if they are just looking to indict the counter protestors, that's another matter.

I wish I could have faith that the process is not rigged, but I don't any more.
