Dear Friends --


Yesterday, in an effort to declare economic human rights for America's
poor, two leaders of the Kensington Welfare Rights Union were forcefully
arrested and now face serious felony charges and high bail!


KWRU members planned to celebrate the 4th of July by practicing their
first ammendment rights and peacdully marching to Philadelphia's new
Constitution Center to deliver a Declaration of Economic Human Rights.


Before the non-violent march could even begin, federal and local police
officers forcefully arrested KWRU leaders Cheri Honkala and Galen Tyler. 

These two leaders and formerly homeless parents, with decades of 
committment
to non-violence, were thrown to the ground, handcuffed and arrested in 
front 
of the Constitution Center, even though they both held tickets to the
center.


After spending the night in jail, Cheri and Galen were charged with a 
slew 
of felony and misdemeanor charges, including assaulting an officer,
resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. These serious charges pose a 
real
threat to the work and character of Cheri, Galen and the Kensington 
Welfare
Rights Union. Fortunately, the events of the day were witnessed and 
documented 
by legal observers, lawyers and news cameras. We are confident that we
can prove that it was Cheri and Galen who were actually assaulted and 
that
the charges against them are completely false.



We call on all those who support the work of the KWRU and who believe in
economic human rights and freedom of speech to stand with us in this 
crisis. 
We need both political and financial help! Specifically, we need to
raise $1040 in bail money for Cheri and Galen's release and we need to 
replace
the cell phones and cash that were confiscated in the arrest. To make a
donation please contact us at kwru@kwru.org or donate online at 
www.kwru.org


We also need our supporters to begin contacting the Philadelphia DA's
office to demand that these ridiculous charges are dropped and to 
denounce the
actions of the police department. For more details on how to stay 
informed 
and how to contribute please check out our website at www.kwru.org
