9am – Support Comrades Awaiting Verdict in Department 109 (5th Floor)
The trial of the Berkeley 5 ended with the last two defendants taking the stand, as well as another witness for the defense, who had been at the protest in March.

The jury will begin deliberating Monday morning at 9am, and is expected back sometime after 10am. Please come out to support our antifascist comrades as we wait for the jury to deliver the verdict.
