Seven Lawrence anarchists were to appear in court today in New York City
after being arrested while protesting at the Republican National
Convention, according to a local anarchist group.
The protesters were arrested Tuesday and held overnight at Pier 57, said
Claven Snow, who's answering a legal hotline this morning in Lawrence
for people who want to help the jailed protesters make bail. Snow said
the group had been held without food, water or toilet facilities, but he
declined to release their names.
No official confirmation was available for the arrests.
Snow said he didn't yet know why they were arrested and didn't know what
kinds of protests people in the group had planned.

"It was the big day of action, and I think that's why police were much
more present and forceful yesterday than they had been prior to that
point," Snow said. "We have kind of a 'don't ask,don't tell' policy
within the community. If somebody is planning any given activity,
whether it's legal or not, we're on a 'need-to-know' basis."
