Is this a different meeting than the one on the NLG website? Because they have this information that's different than this ^^

Update: We are holding another meeting for Occupy Chicago arrestees. The meeting will take place THIS SUNDAY (November 6th) at the Loyola University School of Law (25 E. Pearson) in room 1103 from 1:30pm to 3:00pm. If you were not able to make it to the arrestee meeting on Oct 22nd, were arrested on Oct 23rd, or have questions related to your arrest or court date, we encourage you to attend this meeting.



Hello, sorry for the

Hello, sorry for the confusion about the meetings. The meeting held at Loyola is only for Arrestees to meet with an NLG lawyer and discuss court dates and representation. You need to go and meet them and give them your information if you want them to represent you. 

The second meeting, at the Chicago Teachers Union room at Merchandise Mart and hour later is for the Civil-Liberties-and-Defense committee.  All arrestees should try to come so we can discuss our legal actions collectively and organize public actions supporting our defense. We need to get moving fast as all of our court dates are rapidly approaching. As I understand it, an NLG rep. will be present the committee meeting as well. 

There will be a lot of people attending both meetings I'm sure so we can all travel to the second meeting together.

Can someone recommend cheap and/or free parking near Loyola for the NLG meeting tomorrow (Sun)? I'm driving in from the burbs and the area where the meeting is is a complete cluster-fuck. Thanks!

Also, what have some of the people who have already gone to court received as their sentence? I heard that a few people got community service and then dismissal (in which case, the arrest can be expunged) [If you are convicted, you cannot expunge the arrest]. What have people heard?
