From Anarchist News:
Friend and comrade Elliot was arrested Thursday evening as he left the Albany Bulb, located near Berkeley CA in the east bay area of California. Elliot is a longtime organizer and has been involved in a variety of struggles and campaigns. Recently, Elliot, along with others, have been working with residents of the Albany Bulb, a squattter encampment that is been under attack from the police and local government. Learn more at sharethebulb.org.
Elliot’s capture comes in the wake of the arrest of two of the last bulb residents and the destruction of their house, as well as the arrest of two other Bulb supporters. Elliot is being hit with multiple trumped up charges, including possessing tools to escape from jail and possession of weapons, both felonies, as well as two misdemeanors. His bail is set at $65,000, which means that we need $6,500 to bond him. Please support!
