Dear neighbors, friends and allies,

Note that since then, the bail was reduced to $5000 for each person —
bail money was raised and the defenders are out of prison. THE MOST RECENT

attend court on
Monday at 9am at 1 Heady St. in Cortlandt Manor, NY to observe and just be a
supportive face in the crowd.”
Here’s the communication from Friday night:

Hudson tonight. Spectra commenced destruction after the 12 were taken and

The 12 are now being transferred to an arraignment and the District

We will keep you posted after this special nighttime arraignment, which is
