Legal info

If you are planning an event/action

By request, Occupy Legal may volunteer staff the NLG demonstrations hotline (415-285-1011) for demonstrations with the potential for mass arrests. Requests for a legal hotline, legal observers and on call lawyers, or other demonstrations related legal needs, should be made by filling out the NLG Demonstrations Committee form at http://www.nlgsf.org/form/legal-support-request. If you are unable to complete the online form, please call the NLG at 415-285-5067. OL, and the NLG Demonstrations Committee, are volunteer activists, and cannot guarantee being able to respond to all requests or meet all legal needs.

Arrestee Support Form

[ PDF | ODT | DOC ]
If you plan to risk arrest at all, complete this form and give it to someone you trust who will NOT be at the occupation, like a friend, roommate, or affinity group support person. DO NOT BRING IT TO THE OCCUPATION SITE. You can still do direct action if you don't fill out the form; call 415-285-1011 when and if you get arrested and the legal working group will track you in jail and help get you out, if need be. The form is voluntary and you may leave any of the questions blank. The purpose of the form is to have information available that may help if you're arrested. Don't write anything that could be used as evidence against you.
