      This movement inspires me so much, I respect that people are trying to so this by the book.  I hope the last protest is respectful on both sides.

      Thanks for sharing the inspiring interview!

      ... an article with some information that addresses the question.  The whole article is worth a read, and I'm glad I came across it.  Here's the relevant text on the question ...

      In the last stage of processing (another room) we, individually, went before a magistrate who set our bond. For those with no prior convictions we were given an unsecured bond* of $1000 (released on our own recognizance) and ordered to not return to 106 Jones St until after our case is resolved ... When we were released, our attorneys ... and other supporters were waiting on the other side with hugs, cheers and lots of good food. These volunteer attorneys will represent us in court. They were on the outside of the magistrate’s office the whole time and prepared with a bondsman if needed for bail ...

      *That means that you have to promise to appear in court and will be subject to a fine in the amount of the bond if you fail to appear. This bond was apparently set at $1000 for my correspondent. But she did not have to pay the $1000 up front. She would pay that if she failed to appear in court on the appointed day.
