1 Year Ago... Watch the video
It's hard to believe it's been a year since I shot this video; so much has happened since that night both in regards to my life and the incident itself.
In regards to the incident itself, the first repercussions from this footage surfaced when I discovered that various outlets in the mainstream media had been using my footage from this particular protest without my permission; this actually turned out all right: I sent them a bill for the use of my footage, and they mostly all complied.
The next event that transpired has not turned out so fortuitous: a few days after the protest, I received a visit from the FBI along with two SFPD investigators. They asked for the unedited footage and I told them I would not be able to provide them with the footage at that point in time. A few months later, they returned with a subpoena ordering me to appear in front of the Federal Grand Jury and provide the tape. I have documented this situation at length on my blog and created a resource library
with everything publicly available in regards to this matter.
And, I suppose it's only fitting that I found out today, 1 year from the very same evening that this all went down, that I will have to appear in front of Federal court on Thursday, July 20th for a hearing on civil contempt charges against me.
Any support you can offer would be greatly appreciated... Thanks.
