Police harrassment of animal rights activists in Berkeley, help needed!

Sunday 3/30, a car was pulled over in Berkeley, CA and all of the occupants detained by six patrol cars. The car was impounded. The probable cause for the stop? The driver was a "known animal rights activist" according to Berkeley PD Officer O'Donnell.

Please consider donating to these folks for impound fees (which are in the hundreds of dollars), as well as other legal fees which may arise from this situation. Even if it's just a dollar, it will go a long way.
