"The Portland Street Medics who were arrested include a long-time Queer liberation and radical performance artist; two trained Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), one of whom is also a Wilderness First Responder; and a Nurse Practitioner in training, who is also an Herbalist with more than fifteen years clinical experience.

It's plainly obvious to everyone that our members, sworn to the primary directive of all health care workers to "First, Do No Harm", should have never been arrested and must be allowed and supported to return to their
duties immediately without any interference whatsoever."
