BERKELEY – Eight people were arrested on the night of December 11th, leaving the area of the UCB Chancellor’s mansion. This is an update on their case, from our comrades at ouruniversity:
3:15 p.m. Here are a few points made by John Viola, from the National Lawyers Guild, who was representing at least one of the students charged, forwarded from a student inside the courthouse: The DA has decided not to charge the eight people who were in for felony charges at this point and they will be released later tonight. We need to continue to follow these cases. We want the charges dropped and for there to be no academic charges brought against the students.
