Unfair Punishment of Occupiers (10/7/2011)

We have received news that 5 of the arrested occupiers have been released. Thus far, they have all been charged with:
Penal Code Sacramento City 9.16.140(b)(1).

“It is unlawful for any person to enter or remain upon any private property or business premises after having been notified by the owner or agent to keep off or keep away therefrom. Such notification shall be provided by service of a notice of trespass on such person.”

Penal Code CA 602k

“Entering any lands, whether unenclosed or enclosed by fence, for the purpose of injuring any property or property rights or with the intention of interfering with, obstructing, or injuring any lawful business or occupation carried on by the owner of the land, the owner's agent or by the person in lawful possession.”

The occupiers have been also told that they have been banned for life from the premises, Cesar Chavez Public Park. They have an approximate court date of Oct 26.

We strongly encourage all supporters to call the following numbers and protest these unfair punishments. Ask them to stop preventing peaceful citizens from participating in the democratic process.
