The two individuals arrested at the fur protest today were released a little before 11pm tonight from the Justice Center. Two people from the Portland Legal Defense Network stopped by to talk to the dozen or so family and friends of the arrestees earlier in the evening. We brought them some supplies like coffee and sweaters to get through the night until their loved ones were released. There was also food and other needed items waiting for the two arrestees. The assumption is if you are arrested during the afternoon, chances are you haven't eaten anything all day and you are wearing the same clothes from the protest. Sometimes the clothing is not warm enough or it is soaked in pepper spray.
