Some updates from Occupy Denver arrestee support

First of all, a big thank you to every one who has donated to the bond fund over the last couple days. The outpouring of support has been amazing and overwhelming. Folks from all walks of life have been coming into the 27 Social Centre to drop off donations, small and large, as well as words of solidarity and strength.

There are a couple key updates on the legal support work that we are engaged in for Occupy Denver.

1) There will be a potluck for any and all arrestees from Occupy Denver on Thursday November 17th at 6pm at the 27 Social Centre (2727 W. 27th Ave Unit D). Please bring a dish if you can. We will probably provide some extra food, pizza, etc… to cover for those folks who are unable to bring a dish due to lack of access to a kitchen or food, etc.

Please spread the word to any and all arrestees you know about this potluck. We will also be inviting legal workers, attorneys, etc… So come if you can and if you have a stake in the legal defense of arrestees at Occupy Denver!

2) JT Sexton, one of the arrestees who had been facing a felony charge for allegedly assaulting a Denver police officer on October 29th, had those charges dropped yesterday during his court appearance. This is fantastic news, and is just one of what we hope will be a series of legal victories in the coming weeks.

3) We do have several folks in jail, three of whom will be staying there (very unfortunately) for the foreseeable future. These folks have a mixture of parole and probation violations, very high bonds and need cosigners, have FTAs and are harder to bond, or have already pled guilty and have been sentenced.

These folks still need our support. Please write to them at the following addresses. We also are taking donations for their commissary accounts at the jail. Contact us at denverabc@rocketmail.com if you’d like to make a donation. Also, be sure to check out the mailing regulations for Denver prisoners.

4) We are working to bond an additional 2 people out of jail still (Corey Donahue and Brendan Sexton). Please contact us if you might be able to help. Each of these folks have $5,000 bonds. So we need to raise the full amount, or have co-signers to an 8% bond that would be willing to use their car as collateral. Contact us at denverabc@rocketmail.com to help.

In solidarity and struggle for a world without bosses, cages, or borders.
