Jail Support update for Saturday's Human Rights Day march/ Right to Organize action and the anti-fur protest at Schumacker's
The Portland Legal Defense Network recieved reports of one arrest at the Benson Condo Sales action, and three (or possibly four)at the anti-fur protest at Schumacker's Furs, and one at the Justice Center immediatly following the arrests at Schumacker's Furs. As far as we have information all but one have been released as of 11:30 PM Saturday, and we are expecting the last to be released in a day or several, after a court appearance.
Please contact us if you have videotape of any of the events on Saturday or witnessed any of the arrests. Please think twice before posting video, etc.to indymedia that may affect a person's legal standing. If you were arrested, cited or assaulted by law enforcement and would like to speak with a lawyer please contact us for help with that as well.

We are the group that has been doing jail support in Portland for the past three years. We were called the GDC but we changed our name and moved our location. There are 12 of us, and we work in conjunction with NLG legal observers.
Thanks to all of you for being out there bucking the system and keep looking out for one another, the Portland Legal Defense Network.
