Both the Trib and the Chron report that Occupy Oakland activist Francisco "Pancho" Ramos Stierle, who was arrested early Monday morning while meditating on the steps of City Hall, will be released from federal immigration pending a hearing before a judge. Stierle, who immigrated to the US from Mexico to study astrophysics at Cal, but ultimately dropped out over misgivings about nuclear arms development, became a cause célèbre after his arrest during Monday's raid. Alameda County prosecutors ultimately dropped the two misdemeanor charges against him, for loitering and failure to disperse.
