Wed Aug 15 2012 (Updated 08/16/12)Vigil Held for Ed Frey, Community Members Call for End to the Ban on Sleep in Santa Cruz
On August 7th, a vigil was held at the Santa Cruz court house for Attorney Ed Frey, who was ordered to report to jail on August 8th to begin serving a six month sentence he received for his participation in the Peace Camp 2010 sleep ban protests. Community members occupied the court house steps for 15 hours to protest anti-sleep laws in Santa Cruz in addition to the severe sentence Fry received.
The Sheriff's department attempted to clear the demonstration, but community members maintained the vigil over night, with several people sleeping on the court house steps. At exactly 9am on August 8, Frey reported to the county jail, accompanied by a small group of demonstrators, and in a short amount of time he was fitted with an ankle monitor before returning home to begin serving his sentence.
