ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS FREED!

All of the prisoners from the M20 March were released either on bond or on their own recognizance.

As of 7 AM all the arrestees from M20 were freed-- many on bond, many others on their own recognizance. Several have injuries to show from police brutality, including a woman whose nose was injured when she was slammed to the ground by police, and to whom ice was refused for many hours.

Several supporters were on hand for the 36 hours between the first arrests and the final release to provide food and moral support to the prisoners.

More later, I'm sure . . .
