Activists are dealing with brutal conditions in jail, despite the
mainstream media's portrayal of the Philadelphia Police Department as
"using restraint", the truth is activists have been beaten and denied
access to medical care.
We need to help free these activists immediately and assist them in
dealing with the legal process that they still face.
Please note: daily updates will be provided on the status of those
still incarcerated. Please assume that bail is still urgently needed
until an update is sent with notification that everyone is out of
jail in Philadelphia.
