Rob Mulford’s statement to court for protesting the Racket.

Please, if you will, take the time to listen to my recent Asymmetric Moose program. I know it is long (1hr) but I think it might be worth your while. It contains my statement to the jury concerning my arrest (Oct. 3rd) for protesting: the further militarization of Alaska, and the murder of over 30 pine nut farm workers by U.S. drone this Past September 18, in Afghanistan. I was intending on delivering it in its entirety, risking jail for contempt. The DA dismissed the case before trial, so I recorded my statement and made it a radio program for KWRK-LP 90.9 Fairbanks, Alaska.

Please share. Comment if you please. Contact me by email if you do not have my phone number and wish to talk.
