During this time of almost daily protests, Up Against the Law is prepared to offer legal support in the Philadelphia area region as our capacity allows.
- We will do our best to have observers, if asked in advance, on the ground.
- In addition, if due to timing, we cannot be at your action, we will talk you through legal observing.
- We can and will provide legal support/follow up for all arrested protesters.
- This includes finding out where folks arrested have been taken, if they are taken and held for more than one hour.
- We will find out if they will have a bail hearing do our best to let you know where and when the hearing will be.
- We will contact lawyers who have already reached out to us stating that anyone arrested at protests during this time will be represented pro bono.
- We will meet with all arrestees to explain the process, including how to fight civil citations, if issued.
