At today's arraignment for Z.B. and J.F., two people arrested at Berkeley Friday night, the judge announced that no charges have been filed against them. It was not clear if the people who are still in Santa Rita Jail following the arbitrary arrests Friday night will be released. (Three individual have already been released on bail.)

UC8 supporters are urged to still come to tomorrow's arraignments, as we have not been informed that charges have been dropped for anyone else.

ABC7: " The university arrested eight people, including three students, but when the first two of them came to court on Monday there was a surprise. There were no charges, not for them, or the six others who would have been arraigned Tuesday.

According to the Alameda County district attorney's office, the absence of charges, does not rule out the possibility of charges in the future. They're looking for evidence. The district attorney's office says it has a video tape and hopes to link faces with actions. "
