A VERY GOOD ANNOUNCEMENT: On 2/24, a court issued an indefinite injunction (temporary restraining order) against the demolition, which was scheduled to begin on February 28! This is to allow time for the court of appeals to schedule a hearing for EPNI's appeal of a court decision that supported the demolition plan. While the fight is far from over, this is a major win, which would not have been possible without ALL the incredible organizing and leadership shown by the East Phillips and Little Earth communities, in solidarity with communities far beyond!
We do not know the exact timeline of this process; it could take anywhere from a month to a year for EPNI to get their day in the court of appeals.
One of the conditions of the injunction was that EPNI (East Phillips Neighborhood Institute) had to pay $10,000 in bond. Donate to their fundraising efforts for legal costs here and share this link widely:
