Anti-Racism Demonstrators Offered Free Bail By Nexus Services' National Initiative
Nexus Services, Inc. will post bail for individuals arrested while demonstrating against white supremacists, racists, neo-Nazis, and neo-Confederates in Berkeley, San Francisco and Knoxville this weekend.
VERONA, Va., Aug. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Nexus Services, Inc. is offering bail assistance to anyone joining the anti-racism demonstrations against neo-Nazis, neo-Confederates, and racists that seek to divide Americans rather than unite the United States.
Nexus Services, Inc. will secure the bond and cover bail at no cost to anti-racism demonstrators.
"So long as white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and neo-Confederates continue to flock to our nation's cities in the name of hate and violence, Nexus Services will stand alongside those who exercise their rights to demonstrate against hate and racism," Mike Donovan, civil rights activist and president and CEO of Nexus Services, Inc. said Friday afternoon about the bail-assistance program offered by his company.
"At Nexus Services, we believe in free speech and understand the importance of fighting white supremacist ideology in our systems of government, in our communities, and across our great nation. Our commitment is to ensure that good people standing against hate have the right to be heard, not be jailed. Above all these demonstrators should not languish in a jail cell because they cannot afford bail," concluded Donovan.
Nexus Services established bail-assistance numbers in all three cities: San Francisco, 628-333-4409; Berkeley, 510-987-8988 and Knoxville, 615-763-5105. Collect calls will be accepted. A toll-free hotline was also established: 1-800-658-6743. Nexus Services, Inc. will provide bail at no cost to the demonstrator.
Nexus Services, Inc. will not secure bond for anyone wearing masks in public demonstrations that appear to be in violation the "Ku Klux Klan Act" of 1871.
