Some one hundred supporters rallied on October 9 for the court appearance of Francisco Torres, the last of the SF 8 defendants to face charges. San Francisco Supervisors John Avalos and Eric Mar joined the rally. Five of the SF 8 were present – in addition to Francisco Torres, Ray Boudreaux, Richard Brown, Hank Jones, and Richard O'Neal participated in the enthusiastic picket line.
