Tre Arrow Update


From Tre Arrow:

Blessings to all of you.

Perhaps you've heard that I'm set to take a plea bargain on June 3rd. In the aftermath of Briana Waters' and Eric McDavid's trials, I have weighed the options and decided that i don't want to take the risk of potentially being convicted and spending the rest of my life in prison.

I want you all to know that this is a non cooperation plea agreement: I am in no way selling my soul just to receive a sweet deal from the prosecution. By this I mean I am not giving them any information about anyone or any thing which could lead to others being prosecuted. They offered me a deal I couldn't refuse, which takes into account the time I served in Canada. For those who supported me through all of this, I thank you deeply.

I continue to stand firm in my commitment to being a voice for the Earth. I speak for the trees, for our fellow co inhabitants, and for the voices commonly ignored. This is our home, our one and only Earth Mother. Just as I will protect my birth mother from violation and harm, I am dedicated to being a force to stop the unnecessary and egregious assault on this precious planet. To this end I devote my music, my passion, my life. I look forward to seeing everyone on June 3rd.

Namaste,

Tre

NOTE: Tre's plea hearing has been set for 11:00 am on th 3rd of June at the Federal
Courthouse in downtown Portland (620 SW Main). "All are welcome to attend!"
