Update & Court Support Requested This Week!

Hey Folks! Here’s our latest update!

Ricky, who was arrested on bogus burglary charges and held in jail since July is out, as are Tyrone and TJ. Hellz Yea!

About a week before Mehserle’s sentencing on November 5th, news reported that the city of Oakland was planning to charge 4 protesters from July 8th with civil lawsuits. Until this week, it seemed like those charges were put together to threaten those planning to protest on November 5th. However, we found out this week that at least one of those threatened with civil lawsuits has been served papers AFTER his case from July 8th was dropped. The City of Oakland is charging him with a $25,000 lawsuit. We expect more news to come soon.

People’s court cases from the night of the Mehserle verdict AND the sentencing (July 8th and November 5th) are coming up. While some folks have plead out under pressure from high charges, others are continuing battle theirs. The folks listed below have asked for support in their felony courtrooms… Please come!

Support Stephanie on Tuesday, January 11th at Wiley Manuel Courthouse at 7th and Washington in Oakland. This court date is in department (room number) 112 at 9am

Support Rashaud and Jackson on Wednesday, January 12th at Wiley Manuel Courthouse at 7th and Washington in Oakland. This court date is in department (room number) 115.

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
