|Event Type||Court Date|
Support the UC8! At least two of the eight (and in all likelihood, the other six as well) are to be arraigned tomorrow at the courthouse in downtown Oakland. Please come and show your support for these victims of the police state!
The UC 8 are a group of eight people wrongfully arrested following a march against the fee hikes and other administrative misdoings last Friday, January 11th. They were arrested not for any wrongdoing, but because they happened to be in the march. The cops arre attempting to charge all eight with enough felony charges to drive their bails up to $132,000, making it impossible for supporters to raise even a 10% ($13,000) bond for one of them, let alone eight times that amount (around $104,000). To our knowledge, the eight are all share the same or similar charges and bail amounts. The charges contain such ludicrous claims as arson, burglary, and assaulting a peace officer, among other things.
Please come out and show your support for those wrongfully arrested!
