Mon Feb 19 2007 (Updated 02/23/07)San Francisco 8 Supporters Attend Court Dates, Hold Screenings of "Legacy of Torture"

Claude Marks reports that an overflow crowd of family and friends of four of the San Francisco 8 packed the San Francisco courtroom of Judge Little on Valentine's Day. Unlike their previous court appearances since the arrests in January, Ray Boudreaux, Richard Brown, Hank Jones and Richard O'Neal were shackled in court as close to a dozen sheriffs' deputies and SWAT officers were inside the courtroom. The court agreed to hear arguments about security issues in a future meeting with the Sherriff and lawyers.
None of the men has yet entered pleas. Although a formal Bail Hearing has not yet been held, Judge Little did lower the bail for Ray Boudreaux and Hank Jones from $5 million to $3 million (still seen as outrageous), and the same as was set for Richard Brown and Richard O'Neal. A formal Bail Hearing as well as other motions were scheduled for Tuesday, March 13th. Attorney Stuart Hanlon said, "The strong public support for the four men in court was a powerful reminder that these men are part of their communities and are not criminals."
The new film "Legacy of Torture," about the San Francisco 8, will be screened at the Long Haul on Sunday February 25th . The evening will also include dinner, the classic film "Battle of Algiers," as well speakers about the SF 8, and updates about another California political prisoner who is in need of support. The screening will begin at 6pm, at 3124 Shattuck Ave. in Berkeley, and a $5 donation will be requested to help the San Francisco 8 and Eric McDavid. The ANSWER Coalition will hold a Black History Month Forum that will include the screening of "Legacy of Torture" on Tuesday, February 27th at 7pm at 2489 Mission St. in San Francisco.
