By daybreak on Wednesday February 20, all 26 activists arrested at the FPL power plant construction site blockade had been released from jail. Nine were released on their own recognizance, while the other 17 had to post bond ranging from $250 to $1250 each.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS CONTRIBUTED TO THE BOND FUND!
The total bond cost was $13,350, with Earth First! covering $11,200 of those costs. Most of this money was fronted by a generous individual, and we need to pay them back immediately! So far we have raised $7541.82 including contributions from the arrestees, meaning we need another $3658.18! Please spread the word.
