Peaceful Local Protests Against WTO Result In Numerous Arrests
WTO
Legal Update: Charges have been dropped and the one person left in custody at Martinez County jail has been released, after initially being charged with 2 felonies.

Saturday's peaceful Anti-WTO march through Richmond, CA, featuring colorful props and festive music, turned ominous as police brutally arrested the seven demonstrators outside the Chevron refinery. Approx. 300-500 people braved the toxic drizzle to hear speakers detail the atrocities of multinational corporations and the World Trade Organization, in particular their devastating effects on local communities and the environment. When police violently apprehended an activist who had been painting on the nearby underpass, the crowd surrounded a squad car to demand his release; at least one officer responded by pepper spraying bystanders.

Hundreds of people took to the streets in SF on Nov 9, to rally against corporate greed and environmental racism and call for public control of power. The day's primary target was local robber barron, PG&E. There were 18 arrests and at least one activist still remains in custody, charged on 4 counts, including 2 felonies. Audio: 1 | 2 Photos: 1 | 2
