The thirteen protesters who were arrested during their heroic non-violent sit-in during the City Council budget vote on Tuesday have been released after pleading guilty to one count each of disorderly conduct.

We urgently need to raise $1,560 to cover their fines. Please contribute whatever you can — no donation is too small. Please make donations through Click “SEND MONEY” and send your donation to: Click PERSONAL (rather than purchase). You do not need to have a PayPal account. Our account can accept donations either through bank transfer or through your PayPal account.

Also, please join us next Saturday, July 9, 6:30PM for a PARTY to honor the Bloombergville attorneys, who contributed their legal services, and also Picture The Homeless, who guided the setup of our encampment and helped us keep it legal and viable for more than two weeks! The party will be at the Solidarity Center, 55 W. 17th St., Fifth Floor.

Thanks for your solidarity!
