Guest: Activist Kristen Jones

On the July 29th Infotrap, activist Kristen Jones joins us to discuss the events leading to her petty arrest at the March Against Monsanto in Ann Arbor, Michigan on May 25th. We will also discuss her development as an activist as a result.

She was arrested for using “amplified sound” in the form of a bullhorn at Hanover Park in violation of city ordinances.

It was suggested that the arrest was in response to the protest itself, which was unauthorized as the organizers paid almost $1500 for a permit that was subsequently denied. The arrest was not made for the lack of a permit, nor was the protest shut down by the police.

Kristen Jones kept her sense of humor about it as fellow marchers pooled their resources to raise approximately $250 in bail money for her and she was released later that day.

Afterwards, she had this to say.

“After my arrest, the cops sat there through the rest of the protest. Other people used the megaphone and it was no big deal”

“I am thankful no one else got arrested but there were no arrests that needed to be made. Now if I was acting like an ass and not being peaceful, I could understand. That wasn’t the case.”
“The police told me I had at least 30 people come to the station to bail me out.”
