The RNC Welcoming Committee, an “anarchist/anti-authoritarian organizing body” which provided logistical support to individuals protesting RNC08 in St. Paul, gave a rare press conference on the morning of 9/4/08. The organizers of the group says they have maintained a policy of not speaking to the press until now. Group member Celia Kutz says they can no longer remain silent because Ramsey County Sheriff Bob Fletcher has targeted the group
“It’s become personal” says Kutz.
Eight members of the group have been charged with conspiracy and acts of terrorism.
“There are no terrorists on this stage. There are no terrorists in the Ramsey County Jail,” added Kutz
