Supporters attend pre-trial hearing of Oakland Port Protesters
oakland 25 rally
11/7: Over a hundred people showed up to demonstrate support for the Oakland 25 at a pre-trial hearing on Friday 11/7. The defendants include 24 protesters and the ILWU's Jack Heyman. All of those being charged were arrested at the Port of Oakland protest on 4/7 when police fired "less-lethal" ammunition at both demonstrators and dockworkers.

Speakers from several groups addressed the Friday rally, which was held in front of the courthouse in Oakland. One of the speakers was Willow Rosenthal, who spent time in the hospital and underwent surgery for injuries to her leg which were caused by police use of wooden bullets.
