Support for Those Arrested in the Protest - Repost from Berkeley CopWatch

By the way, CAPE sponsored the rally at Fruitvale BART and is not responsible for events that took place later on. They have sent this message and Copwatch is encouraging everyone to show solidarity. See how quick the DA can arraign people when he wants to...

From the Coalition Against Police Execution:

Critical Resistance and the National Lawyers Guild are amassing lists of names of arrestees and trying to do visits to support folks getting released.

Please call the NLG hotline (415) 285-1011 if you know of someone who has been arrested and/or email me At this point, we are still creating a list of folks who were arrested, and folks are being charged with obstruction, rioting, failure to disperse, remaining at the scene of a riot and unlawful assembly. Most folks are either being held at Santa Rita jail or the Glenn Dyer County Jail.

Many folks are being cited and released and are awaiting a February court date, but many are being held at Glenn Dyer for their

court date Jan. 9th (Friday) at 2pm
Wiley W. Manuel Courthouse
Room 107
661 Washington (near 7th)

Please come to support arrestees tomorrow, and if you have the means, try to raise bail money for folks being held. Again, if you know of someone who may have been arrested, please contact us, and if you can do legal support, please contact us as well.
