This petition is in support of the immediate release of our friend Anna Karewicz (often called Anka), a much beloved community member and generous volunteer. Anna is being held with an ICE (immigration) hold and is fighting imminent deportation.
Anna was contacted by police Thursday August 3rd, after her bicycle tour group mistakenly turned, riding their bikes on the wrong side of a one way street for one block in Arcata, CA. When she began to identify herself they accused her of being “illegal” and then took her to jail. The rest of the tour group received traffic infraction citations and were free to go.
