Two Olympia activists charged with perjury after march against police brutality

Two Olympia activists charged with perjury after march against police brutality By Alex 10 Nov 2010 Two Olympia activists, Matt (Matthew Duran) and Maggi (Margaret Belknap), have been charged with perjury in connection with their participation in an anti-police brutality demonstration in Olympia, Washington, on 8 April 2010. The demonstration occurred in reaction to recent police murders in Olympia, Portland, Tacoma, and the Bay Area - and the unaccountability that surrounds them...  One activist who took the stand in her defense and one who was a witness to her arrest have been charged with perjury simply for telling their side of the story.
