The gang has so far raised more than $2000 — for bail commission fees, fines, and other expenses — through their website, january7th.wordpress.com. As they await their March 4 court date, they've been speaking out about their experience, with a forum downtown the week after, and another in Jamaica Plain last Tuesday. This Saturday, January 26, they'll align with 350 New England and other activist groups in Portland, Maine, for a protest against tar-sands pipelines in the Northeast. After those demonstrations, on February 17 the Westborough 8 will join thousands of others to oppose Keystone XL approval in Washington, DC. As for their next sit-in, they refuse to comment at this time.
