Protect press freedom in the US: Drop charges against Jenni Monet

Jenni Monet, an independent journalist, was arrested February 1, 2017 while covering a demonstration against the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Despite displaying a valid press pass, Jenni was arrested while complying with a request to leave the premises.

She was strip-searched, held for five hours in a chain-link holding cage, detained for 30 hours total and then charged with rioting and trespassing.

Demand that charges against Jenni be dropped!
