For 25 years the NLGSF Demonstrations Committee has run a hotline to support actions & protests across the Bay Area. That number, (415) 285-1011, has been the lifeline for countless jailed comrades & their loved ones to get connected to our legal support systems. We give information on how the jailing & court processes work, dispatch volunteer lawyers to visit arrestees in jail & make appearances at arraignments, & link up with the Bay Area Anti Repression Committee for court & bonding support.
