**While it is important to get people out to all of these court dates, we want to emphasize the need to pack the courtroom in SF. This person has been in custody since Black Friday, and we are trying to get them out on something similar to OR. Their lawyers have stated that a full courtroom of support could possibly impact the judge’s decision. **
UPDATE (12/2 11am): Out of 12 people with arraignments, 9 had no charges filed. 8 of them are being released tonight at Santa Rita jail. Remember, the D.A. has up to 1 year to file charges on misdemeanors and 3 years on felonies, so those who were arraigned need to keep checking on their status. The 9th person with no charges filed will not be released tonight due to a legal mix-up. They have court on Wednesday at 9 am so please show up if you can! Three people are being charged with felonies. One has already been bonded out and the other two cannot be bonded or bailed because of prior holds. We will keep you updated with info about their court dates as soon as we can.

Three of them are facing minor charges of obstructing an officer and others have charges that range between battery and failure to leave the scene of a riot. 5 people will be arraigned on 11/26 at 9am at Wiley Manuel Courthouse Dept 107, however they will probably be seen by the court in the afternoon after 2:30pm. Please show up to support if you can.
