Email - bakhtiarijj {at} vcu.edu We are working on getting a group of lawyers together who will be able to offer help/ advice/ contact/ and hopefully even representation to activists in Richmond.

Update on Chapel Hill

We just received word that Richmond activist Ellen Crawford is doing ok, and just waiting while being detained by the police in Chapel Hill.Ellen is waiting for printing and processing.

Apparently folks who were detained are all being charged with trespassing and breaking and entering which are misdemeanors.

More as we get it.

NC Piece Corps has a write up of what happened today, and plans for support of arrestees.
