The sambistas targeted the North gate with tactical frivolity twice: the first time to raise the spirits of demonstrators holding banners and placards in the rain, and the second time to shut the base with a big group of blockaders (around 3pm). The police arrested more than 20 activists at the North Gate, including the sambista having a mestre (conductor) role at the time.
There were another 2 blockades at the South Gate, where another 4 sambistas were arrested after being removed from an hour-long gate blockade.
All sambistas were released in good spirits, on Wednesday approximately 3:00 pm, after spending 20 hours in friendly cells. They were all given a letter from the Procurator Fiscal stating the offence(s) but that proceedings would not be taken.
