We have received new info that as many as 14 of the roughly 70 people cited and released for misdemeanors on July 8th, who were mostly rounded up at random, are now having charges brought on them 10 weeks later. The charges include remaining at the scene of a riot, unlawful assembly, and rioting. Another 4 people were arrested last week on felony burglary charges. The Oakland 100 Support Committee is reaching out to defendants and their families to find out which defendants would like a show of support and solidarity in the court room for their court proceedings.
