1. Syracuse Update - Door locked & Meeting Tuesday (Aug 31).
Details: http://www.AKidsRight.Org/actionc_syr

John Murtari returned to the Syracuse Federal Building again on
Wednesday and Thursday.  He stayed close to one of two doors into the
building (effectively blocking the door since the officer was blocking
his way).  It was a bit surprising to see how much they do NOT want an
arrest to occur now. They are willing to lock one of the two doors to
the building and post a private guard to watch him as he stands right
outside the door holding 'our' petition to the Senator.

John expresses his GREAT thanks to all of you who have called and
written the Senator's offices (more messages below).

He would like to meet with people willing to help setup a meeting with
Senator Clinton. He will be standing outside the building on Monday
and Tuesday from 2pm-4pm (prior to the Court appearance).  It presents
a good opportunity for people to get together and meet each other in
person to discuss goals and plans.  If you plan on coming you can call
John at his office: 877-635-1968,x-211 between 8am-noon on

2. Appearance in Syracuse Federal Court - Aug 31, 4pm
John Murtari has an appearance scheduled at 4pm on Tuesday, Aug 31, in
front of US Federal Magistrate Judge DiBianco at 4 PM.  The Court is
open to the public and you are welcome to attend! The appearance is to
finalize a 'stipulation' regarding the 4 arrests that occured this
Spring. It will allow the Judge to more quickly deliver a decision and
probable jail sentence.

After some full trials and pending appeals (with counsel) on earlier
arrests John proposed to proceed 'pro se' and to stipulate to the
facts to 'expedite' the process and keep costs down since the facts in
the arrests are all identical.  It was to also help reduce the number
of 'consecutive' sentences by allowing rapid sentencing.

One important item John hopes to address with the Court is the current
action of Building officials to basically 'push' him out of the
building.  John does not resist this physical handling, but plans on
objecting to the Judge regarding that type of conduct and his concern
of what might happen in future events... (Letter to Judge)

4. Your FEEDBACK - on Senator Clinton
No matter how you may feel about her. Let us all remember Senator
Clinton is a VERY good politician and wants to be President.  If we
can't get enough public support to convince her Family Reform is
important -- what does that say about the reform effort?  We need to
'move' people in this country to rethink Family rights and I'm sure
she'll want to be on the right side of the issue.  Do we expect her to
take 'action' before we do?

Yes, you have some good ideas.  But the problem is just getting people
involved enough to actually come to the building.  It is pretty rare
that even one person shows up.  I can see that they have decided NOT
to arrest me even if it means locking one of the doors and posting a
private guard to watch me...
