Four members of Sunflower Community Action are scheduled to go to trial in the next two months for a protest at City Manager George Kolb’s house that the group hoped would pressure him to clean up a blighted home in northeast Wichita.
“We don’t think we were guilty of anything,” Sunflower organizer Jason Selmon told The Eagle editorial board. He said the group plans to “fight this to the end” in court.
And he mentioned one piece of evidence the group will use to bolster its case — a videotape Sunflower made of the entire protest.
Selmon says the tape clearly shows the protest was “orderly” and “peaceful.”
