LeGrand Jones, a National Lawyer's Guild attorney from Olympia, was arrested for refusing an illegal demand by police to see his ID at the Port of Tacoma recently. The police have been using demands for ID as one of several harassment tactics towards anti-war demonstrators at the port. LeGrand will use his hearing tomorrow to creatively demonstrate against these tactics by police. Supporters and press are advised to attend.
