More Arrests, Court Support Requested

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.

About Oakland 100 Support Committee

The Oakland 100 Support Committee (O100) came together after the rebellions in January 2009 against the police murder of Oscar Grant III. Since then we have worked along side arrestees to raise awareness about their cases. Through several successful benefits we raised over 4000 dollars for the 3 people that had felony cases. To this date none of them served any jail time. We produced a short documentary entitled “Hands Off Oakland Rebels” and participated in the “Drop the Charges” campaign. With the recent news of killer cop, Johannes Mesherle’s lenient sentence of involuntary manslaughter Oakland erupted again in rage. That night close to 100 protesters were arrested and 12 people are still being held in jail and facing trumped up felony charges. We are interested in working with arrestees, their friends, and families to craft what support means to them. For Information on how to befriend us in the struggle, or to send donations to arrestees write us a note at: oakland100 [at] gmail.com Oakland 100 Support Committee PO Box 22449 Oakland, CA 94609 View all posts by Oakland 100 Support Committee
