Eric Marquez

ericmarquezAccording to the Texas DOC, and confirmed by Eric’s supporters, Eric was released from custody in August of 2013.

A member of Occupy Austin, Eric Marquez has been in jail since December 2011, after he was arrested at the December 12th National Port Solidarity Action in Houston for allegedly being part of a “sleeping dragon” lockdown. A few days after his arrest, Judge Joan Campbell dismissed the cases, ruling there was no probable cause for the charges. However, several days later a Grand Jury re-indicted the seven and issued new warrants. At this point Eric was re-arrested at Tranquility Park in Houston and taken back to jail. He is the only one of the seven who has not been able to make bail.
