Shield Mutual invites Washington, DC area liberty activists to the founding of the first chapter of the nascent Jury Rights Project in the nation’s capital city this Monday, September 16, 2013 from 3 to 5PM Eastern. The purpose of the event is to establish a permanent and effective group of highly-trained activists in Washington, DC who will engage in jury rights activism and education on a regular basis at DC-area courthouses and other locations.
What’s so special about jury rights activism? We inform jurors and potential jurors of their right, in criminal cases, to refuse to convict on conscientious grounds if they believe the law is unjust, the law is being unjustly applied or the defendant has already suffered enough. This power predates the constitution and the founders. It is a secret power that judges have been attempting to quash for at least 118 years. Using this power, lone individuals can effectively nullify political and other victimless crimes when they serve as jurors, thus removing the teeth of the government injustice systems.
Veteran jury rights activist Jim Babb is traveling down to the Washington, DC superior court this Monday at 3PM to train new jury rights activists in how to conduct effective jury rights activism without getting arrested.
We need YOUR help to find at least 5 individuals who will RSVP via voicemail to (641) 715-3900 ext. 255888 before 8AM on Monday. Otherwise, the event will not take place. We already tried, and failed, to carry out this event once before on September 9 and only got 2 RSVPs. Let’s get the ball rolling for justice in the nation’s capital without further delay!
In addition to the training, participants will also be pamphleting and there may be a social meetup afterwards.
You can have an enormous impact for liberty by being a jury rights activist. It doesn’t require a lot of time but it does require consistency and commitment. The rewards can be very fulfilling. Will you take up the challenge?
** MINIMUM 5 individuals must RSVP via voicemail to (641) 715-3900 ext. 255888 before 8AM the day of the event in order for this event to take place **
