All Pagan Cluster Activists Out of Jail
As of Friday morning, all 21 (probably 24, says Holley -- ed.) Pagan Cluster activists had been released. People had been in jail since Tuesday.
Nineteen people were arrested on Tuesday as part of a Pagan Cluster action. Two others, Kala and Dress, were arrested separately. All are out of jail now.
As far as we at RQ know, this accounts for all of the Pagan Cluster folks who were arrested in NYC. If you have any other information we should post here, please email me - thanks!
Thursday afternoon, before everyone got out of jail, Pagan Cluster members gathered outside the jail, singing:
We will never, never lose our way
Many protesters are still incarcerated and need our support!

Tuesday, August 31 - New York City
Hundreds of people have been arrested today in New York City, peacefully assembling to demonstrate against the Republican convention and all it stands for. The police didn't wait for people to actually do anything illegal, they just arrested everybody who looked like a demonstrator as early as possible. The arrests are continuing as I write.

My friend Deborah is among those in jail tonight, arrested on a sidewalk near the World Trade Center. I will send more info about Deborah's arrest in a separate message. I believe she is okay, she has legal representation through the National Lawyers Guild, and I hope she will be cited and released tomorrow afternoon or evening. Here are phone numbers for New York City officials -- please make a few phone calls, let them know that you know what's going on in New York, and encourage them to drop all charges against the demonstrators, and to release all the arrested demonstrators immediately.
Thanks, peace -- Anthony
