The Mall Of America Wants to Charge Activists for "Lost Revenue" After a Peaceful Gathering?! | SumOfUs

The Mall Of America Wants to Charge Activists for "Lost Revenue" After a Peaceful Gathering?! | SumOfUs


#BlackLivesMatter had a peaceful protest last year and this is the response that they got 
 an overzealous prosecutor who has deep ties to the Mall of America is threatening criminal charges against a few of us she thinks are “organizers”, in an ill-conceived effort to try and force us to pay tens of thousands of dollars of restitution for “the Mall’s lost revenue” and “police overtime”.
The prosecutor has said she will file charges in just a few days. At this point, the only thing that will stop her charging me and other young people of color is if the Mall of America tells her not to.
Can you join me in telling the Mall of America to stop heavy-handed intimidation tactics targeting peaceful participants?
