PSL Protests at White House against Denver arrests of organizers on Trumped-up felony charges

On the 19th of September, the Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL)protested at the White House (and also in Denver on a larger scale) against the arrests on bogus "kidnapping" and other phony felony charges of six organizers in Denver who it is alleged organized a protest in which a police station was surrounded.

In Denver, the pigs used a military MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) armored vehicle and a tank to raid one organizer's house. Those arrested include organizers for the Party for Socialism and Liberation, a co-founder of the Front Line Party for Revolutionary Action, and others. The PSL has warned "They are facing heavy felony charges - an obvious frame-up aimed at stopping the movement. IT WON’T WORK" in a recet tweet. The original Denver protest drawing the charges was over the murder of Elijah McClain, who was killed by Aurora, CO police using an injection of Ketamine as the murder weapon back in 2019.

On July 3, 2020, furious protesters surrounded and beseiged an Aurora police station (possibly offending police station?) for 7 hours, and blocked the doors. Since the police were armed and protesters were not, the 18 cops inside could have forced their way out under a blizzard of tear gas, pepper spray, and rubber bullets probably even without help from outside any time they wanted. If not, they had other police stations and even a option to escape by air. Using a helicopter to pull those cops out was considered and rejected, possibly for fear the station would be destroyed. Since that means the police in question chose to stay put, one of the "particulars" of a kidnapping charge (not able to leave) is not present in this case, yet it was filed anyway.

As this is going on, we have Attorney General Barr calling for the filing of sedition(!) charges against protesters, and we have the news that Trump's Federal troops seriously considered using a microwave heat ray device (a literal ray-gun) against protesters near the White House in early June. They have shown they are willing to do nearly anything if they think it will stop peaceful or otherwise unarmed protesters.
