"David Price Six"
On May 7 2007, six student protesters went to trial on trespassing charges in connection with a February demonstration in U.S. Rep. David Price's office. The self-proclaimed "David Price Six" Laura Bickford, Ben Carroll, Alisan Fathalizadeh, Sara Joseph, Dante Strobino and Tamara Tal demanded a meeting with Price to ask that he vote to defund the Iraq war. "After about 15 minutes it was pretty apparent we weren't going to talk to him so we sat down and refused to leave," Bickford says. A legislative aide called police and the students were handcuffed and taken to jail. They were released on their own recognizance. Chapel Hill attorney Al McSurely, who represented the students, filed a motion for necessity defense, which argued that the trespassing violation was a necessary action for the greater good. A judge dismissed the charges.

"Durham Beyond Policing Town Hall"
We are calling all freedom-fighters, all justice-lovers, all truth-tellers, all who can't wait to please join Southerners On New Ground and the #SayHerName crew for a community forum and visioning session. Let's speak our truths and sow the seeds of a new way forward for all our people, with those most impacted, most criminalized, at the center: black and brown people, queer, trans and gender non-conforming folks, working class and poor people, undocumented people ... Let's dream and scheme together and find out ways to throw down for campaigns and direct action that holds the cops accountable

More protesters were arrested Wednesday August 15 2017, for participating in a demonstration that toppled a Confederate statue in North Carolina, and more monuments were vandalized as well.
On Wednesday morning, Dante Strobino and Ngoc Loan Tran were led away in handcuffs when they came to a court hearing for Takiyah Thompson, the woman who climbed the ladder. Another demonstrator, Peter Gull Gilbert, was arrested later.
The Durham County Sheriff’s office said all four arrested so far were charged with two felonies related to inciting and participating in a riot that damaged property, along with two misdemeanors.
