My name is Rod Webber, and I am a peace activist known by many for for passing out flowers to both strangers and politicians, (fromĀ Bernie Sanders to John McCain), and praying with many of them at their events. I believe in social justice, and have attended rallies championing the environment, and have marched in St. Louis and Ferguson/ Jefferson City for Mike Brown, and believe in helping those in need.

However, on Oct. 12th, I was assaulted at the "No Labels Problem Solvers" convention by Donald Trump security, along with Manchester NH police department. I asked Mr. Trump at a Q&A if he would address my being roughed up at a Trump rally in Rochester, NH a couple weeks previous. For my efforts, I was grabbed from behind and thrown over a table, dragged, then thrown to the floor again. After being detained, then officially released, I was escorted from the property. I then approached police to press charges against the Trump staff and officers who assaulted me-- at which point I was arrested for "disorderly conduct" and "resisting arrest." Ironically, there is video of me offering the police a flower during this alleged "resisting arrest."

This is a first amendment issue. The freedom of speech is what I am fighting for. If Mr. Trump is afraid to answer-- and he responds with violence-- refusing to denounce the actions of his supporters (in Rochester) and his staff in Manchester, then this is what we can expect under a Trump presidency.

According to GoFundMe: "Per our terms, 'Campaigns in defense of formal charges or claims of heinous crimes, violent, hateful, sexual or discriminatory acts' will not be allowed."

The GoFundMe review process is alleged to take no more than 7 days. It was been 11.

I simply wants to raise funds to assist with legal expenses and continue my mission. If you believe in keeping freedom of speech an American value, please sign and share.


Thank you. Rod Webber
