Support Carwil James
by Friends of Carwil
Sunday Dec 13th, 2009 7:06 PM
Carwil James and 7 other people were arbitrarily arrested on Friday following a rally, concert, and march at the University of Berkeley. They were there in solidarity with those arrested that morning during a violent police crack-down inside of Wheeler Hall. Everyone there was supporting affordable and accessible higher education.

Visit to find out how you can help support Carwil.
Carwil is currently in jail and has an arraignment hearing on Tuesday. It is uncertain what he will actually be charged with but the current charges are very serious and may lead to a long and expensive trial.

What you can do to help get Carwil out of jail and keep him out:

1) Attend his arraignment hearing this Tuesday at 2:00PM in Oakland.

Show support by coming to Carwil’s arraignment hearing this Tuesday December 15th at 2:00PM. It will be at Wiley W. Manuel Courthouse, Dept. 112, the addres is 661 Washington Street, Oakland. Carwil is a lover of peace, so if you attend please come in that fashion.

2) Donate to his legal fees: we need to raise $25,000

Carwil is currently facing significant charges and his legal fees are likely to be daunting. UC Berkeley Chancellor Robert Birgeneau has publicly stated that he intends to pursue prosecution of these trumped up charges to all those arrested, and an expensive legal battle may be ensuing. Even if you can only chip in a little, please donate to help cover the legal costs.
