Occupy Oakland Activist Faces Deportation

Local activist Pancho Ramos Stierle was arrested early Monday morning for meditating in front of city hall during the raid on Occupy Oakland. Because of his immigration status, ICE placed a hold on his bail, the Chron reports. Stierle, who is 36, came to the US to study astrophysics at Cal, but dropped out because he objected to nuclear arms development, according to Chron reporter Demian Bulwa. You can find out more about him in this short video by journalist Josh Wolf:
