Dear Members of the Media, Governor of North Dakota Jack Dalrymple, US. Attorney General Chris Myers and President Obama.
Deia Schlosberg was exercising her First Amendment right as a journalist. The State of North Dakota’s criminal complaint filed against her on October 13, 2016 should be dropped immediately. Journalism, especially documentary filmmaking, is not a crime it's a responsibility. The freedom of the press is a fundamental right in our free society. The charges filed against her are an injustice that must be dropped immediately.
