From the Committee to Stop FBI Repression:
— At court on April 26, the judge ordered a trial to begin May 15
for Carlos Montes. The legal charges are a pretext to attack Carlos for his political activism, and stem from the national FBI targeting of anti-war and international solidarity activists. Carlos Montes is a longtime Los Angeles anti-war, immigrant rights and Chicano civil rights activist.
— Funds are urgently needed for Carlos’ legal defense.
At the April 26 hearing, the judge refused to dismiss the charges against Carlos on the basis of discriminatory prosecution due to his activism, so a full-blown trial will begin on May 15. Trials are expensive. Click here to donate.
