Support Todd and Adrian

3/2/11 Preliminary Hearing

March 2, 2011 (Wed)

9:00 AM – 12:30PM

Alameda County Superior Court, Dept. 112

661 Washington St. Oakland, CA

Friends, Family and Allies: Todd and Adrian were wrongfully arrested on July 8, 2010 during the Oscar Grant protests and charged with Felony Arson and several misdemeanors.

Please join us at their court date on March 2nd, 2011. The judge is going to be deciding which charges against them should be dropped, and which charges have enough evidence to proceed to trial. Their lawyers have told us that it will help them to have supporters in the courtroom, who can demonstrate to the judge and DA that we have allies who are watching the outcome of this case.

We’re asking that if you come, please come on time and meet us outside of the courtroom so that we can enter as a group for maximum impact. Please dress and groom yourself to present a relatively professional appearance and that you please follow the court rules and refrain from catcalling at the judge. This case is very serious, and they may well do JAIL TIME as a result of it – so it’s very important to us that you take it as seriously as we do.

Thanks so much – and, again, thanks to everyone who took time off to come out on Nov. 23 and Jan. 10. Your continued support really, really makes a difference.

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] Oakland 100 Support Committee PO Box 22449 Oakland, CA 94609 View all posts by Oakland 100 Support Committee
