*Reminder: Holiday Party Protest for Tainted, Inc. Tomorrow, Friday,
Dec. 14th at 9:00am in Front of the Oakland Federal Building!*

Please come out and show your support for the four former Tainted Inc.
employees. On September 26, 2007, the DEA raided five locations in
Oakland and San Leandro, allegedly confiscating hundreds of edibles and
460 plants, and arresting Jessica Sanders (30), Michael Anderson (42),
and Diallo McLinn (35). After a press conference on October 4, Michael
Martin (33), who had been on vacation during the raid, voluntarily
turned himself in. All four are charged with conspiracy to manufacture
or distribute controlled substances and are out on bail. Tainted Edibles
were available for patients as an alternative to smoking at dispensing
collectives across the state.

*Please note: * The protest will happen right before the Tainted
plaintiffs' pre-trial hearing. Following the protest, we will all go in
for the hearing. After the hearing supporters are encouraged to go to
the Bulldog, who will be hosting a Free Tainted bake sale fundraiser.
Please come show your support! _*We are unsure whether or not the
hearing is still happening, but that is all the more reason to show up
on time at 9:00am and be prepared to go to the hearing. *_

Join us at the protest, which will happen at 9:00am sharp! People are
encouraged to bring holiday-themed signs, costumes, and even puppets.

When: Friday, December 14th, protest starts at 9:00am, hearing is
scheduled for 10:00am.
Where: Meet in front of the Oakland Federal Building for the protest.
The hearing will be Before Magistrate Wayne D. Brazil U.S. District
Court (N.D., CA), at 1301 Clay Street in Oakland1301 Clay Street in Oakland
