Urgent Court Solidarity Needed: 9am in SF!
two students at SFSU who were arrested and detained for the attempted
occupation of the SFSU Student Union on Wed. morning this week have just
been released (yes, it's 3am on Saturday!) and are headed home right
now. Their charges have been reduced to misdemeanors.
occupation was in protest of fines (now around 850.00 per student)
leveled as part of misconduct charges against 11 students involved in a
two-day occupation in December, where students barricaded themselves (by
masterful use of blue chairs and zipties) inside the business school.
of the arrestees many of us remember, as she came from UCB to support
the Shields Library Study-In in January, and helped throw the amazing
midnight dance party in the microfiche room. She was also part of the
freeway protest and mass arrest on March 4th in Oakland.
The arraignments will take place at 9am Friday (today) in SF, at 850 Bryant, dept 13.
it's very last minute, court solidarity is urgently needed, and would
mean a great deal at this point. If you have friends, or can make it
yourself, please try to.
