Late yesterday (6/27), the 3 forest activists that were arrested after a lockdown at UC-Davis near Sacramento to protest Genetically Engineered Tree research were freed after paying $1,000 bond each (their bail was $10,000)
Their pre-trial hearing is set for July 11 at Yolo County Courthouse in Woodland, CA.
Please call the Yolo County D.A. office at 530-666-8180 and ask for investigator Bruce Naliboff. Tell him to drop all charges against these peaceful protestors! Call during regular business hours.
They are desperately in need of financial assistance and moral support. Please see below.
