Support Jason Hammond as he begins his 41-month Sentence

jason-hammondJason Hammond, Jeremy’s twin brother, accepted a non-cooperating guilty plea and was sentenced to 41 months in prison on January 2015 for his part in an organized direct action taken against a group of white supremacists.

In 2012, a group of racists and white supremacists organized a ‘White Nationalist Economic Summit’ in the Chicago suburb of Tinley Park. Groups of anti-fascists and anti-racists from the Midwest decided to confront the meeting and successfully shut down their event through a righteous melee. In the aftermath, 5 people were arrested and were dubbed the Tinley Park 5. All five were sentenced to upwards of 3 years and have since been released. Jason is the last person to have been arrested for this action.
