There were 8 students arrested last night around 11 PM during the OUTDOOR protests and marches on the UC Berkeley campus.
From what we know already, they were cited for rioting, vandalism, and threatening either school or public officers, all of which we KNOW are false or exaggerated charges. The arrests were used to try and scare and try to disperse the crowd. We need to act immediately, please go to the ALEMEDA COUNTY SANTA RITA JAIL if you’re in the area to do jail support.
If you’re concerned about a friend, you can call the jail: 925.551.6500 – use your friend’s first and last name and ask if they are being held – it can help to say you’re family. You can also use the “inmate locator” to recieve information:
We are doing our best to set up legal representation. E-mail directly for information. firstname.lastname@example.org
We also have a partial list of those 8 arrested but have not been able to complete it – if you have any information please e-mail: email@example.com.
More updates to come. PLEASE contact with information!
