Fri May 18 2012 (Updated 05/20/12) Highway One Banner Displays Supporting the Santa Cruz Eleven Continue
Banners on Highway One: "Support The Santa Cruz Eleven" and "Drop All Charges Now!" On May 18th, supporters of the Santa Cruz Eleven held banners on the Soquel Avenue overpass, to be seen by passing drivers on Highway 1, in support of the eleven people charged in association with the 2011 occupation of a vacant bank building at 75 River Street in Santa Cruz. So far six of the eleven defendants have had charges against them dismissed by Santa Cruz County judge Paul Burdick, and the remaining five are still in the middle of pre-trial hearings. Community members also displayed banners on May 15th on the La Fonda Avenue overpass.

The Santa Cruz Eleven are local community members who have been charged with an unprecedented variety of offenses arising from their alleged involvement with the occupation of a long-time vacant bank building late last fall, 2011. These defendants are either journalists, members of our local press, and/or activists supportive of the Occupy movement.

Still facing pre-trial hearings are Brent Adams, Desiree Foster, Gabriella Ripley-Phipps, Becky Johnson, and Robert Norse (Kahn).
