Though 24-year-old activist Allyson Crosby managed to telephonically contact her boyfriend and arrestee Massimo Marini, it remains unclear when he and the others will be released. “The facility isn't giving them any information,” Crosby said. She added that attorneys with the National Lawyers Guild representing Los Angeles protesters have yet to be given access to their clients. Our sister publication LA Weekly is reporting 290 of those arrested Wednesday are being saddled with $5000 bail amounts.
ORIGINAL POST, November 30, 12:53 P.M.: Of the nearly 300 activists arrested during last night's raid on Occupy Los Angeles, a handful were from Occupy Santa Ana.
45-year-old Ray Ramirez, who was in Downtown LA during the early morning hours when throngs of police emerged from City Hall to dismantle the camp, said four Santa Ana Occupiers were arrested for failing to disperse from an unlawful assembly.
The names he gave were Edith Gonzalez, Jedediah Poole, Massimo Marini and Nicholas Dorsey. LAPD spokesman Richard French was unable to confirm whether these four were in the system, though he said the bail for all arrestees, which currently number 292, was being set at $5,000.
