We do not have the ability to remove your name once you’ve posted it. Update on Bail Funds: We want to thank our community for your incredible generosity! Over the last 24 hours we've received an enormous amount of support. Your donations are critical right now as people continue to rise up across the Bay Area.

You can donate to them (they are running a hotline and provide pro bono legal support for arrestees in the Bay Area) at nlgsf.org/ways-to-contribute/ Our biggest need right now is spreading word through any means necessary to educate protesters going out in the streets to write the NLG hotline number (415) 285-1011 on the arms in permanent ink and to call the hotline if arrested. If you want to report an arrest or trying to coordinate loved ones support from the outside you can call the the NLG Public Hotline (415) 909-4NLG Our bail funds are only as good as it who it reaches.

Background on our group: Originally formed to support Occupy Oakland actions, the Bay Area Anti-Repression Committee (ARC) stands against political repression and is in solidarity with all those who challenge the state, capitalism and other forms of systemic oppression and domination. We provide support for actions that are anti-patriarchal, anti-racist, anti-imperialist & anti-capitalist. Our bail fund is for those that do not have the resources to bail or bond themselves when facing state repression. ARC bail policy: https://antirepressionbayarea.com/about-2/
