Cries to "drop the charges," and improvised drums were heard outside the Wichita City Hall today.
Members of the Occupy Wichita movement gathered to protest the arrest and charges against 61 year old Doris Ravenfeather.
Shortly after the protest began, the group was told they would have to move because the space they were in was not a public sidewalk. After some discussion, the group was allowed to remain in place.
Protestors wore signs and handed out fliers, to raise public awareness for Ravenfeathers case.
Ravenfeather was arrested on November 16, 2011, while attending the Brownback Town Hall on Childhood Poverty. Police moved in on several members of the Occupy group, but Ravenfeather was the only one arrested. Ravenfeather was not part of the Occupy group.
Occupy members says Ravenfeather is now facing large legal fees, as well as medical bills for injuries she received during her arrest.
Ravenfeather had been scheduled for a trial today, but it has now been pushed back to August.
