Guess who's scheduled to come to the protest at Tuesday's Wake County school board meeting?
Dante Strobino has signed up on the Facebook event listing to attend the protest. Strobino is the 29-year-old Raleigh activist with a history of arrests who was among the three people arrested at the March 23 school board protest.
Strobino was scheduled to appear in court Wednesday on the March charge of second degree trespassing. But according to the Wake County District Attorney's Office, Strobino was a no-show at Wednesday's hearing.
Strobino has 20 days to request a new trial or face being charged with failure to appear.
Rakhee Devasthali, another one of the activists who was arrested March 23, is also signed up to be at Tuesday's protest. Devasthali, 22, a UNC-Chapel Hill student from Fayetteville, had her court date for the charge of resisting a public officer moved to June.
The third person who was arrested, Duncan Edward Hardee, 21, of Asheville, isn't listed as attending the protest. The former Enloe High student has his court date for a charge of resisting a public officer moved to June.
The attendance was light at the May 4 first reading of the student assignment policy. The question is how large turnout will be next week for the second reading.
