Monday, November 14th - 8:00 AM
13th Floor, Department 123

After a hugely successful conference on November 
5 in Chicago, 150 activists and organizers 
committed to organizing solidarity with Carlos 
Montes. So across the country, activists and 
defenders of human rights are mobilizing to 
support Carlos Montes as he appears for a 
Preliminary Hearing at the LA County Superior Courthouse Dept. on Monday.

On May 17, under the direction of the FBI, LA 
Sheriffs brandishing automatic weapons broke down 
Montes’ door at 5:00am and ransacked his home, 
seizing meeting notes and writings covering over 
40 years of activism in the Chicano, immigrant 
rights, labor and anti-war movements. Carlos 
Montes is charged with 6 felony counts for 
weapons possession, threatening 18 years in 
prison - essentially a life sentence.Carlos 
Montes is directly connected to the Midwest 23 
through working to organize the mass protest at 
the 2008 Republican National Convention. Montes’ 
name appeared on the FBI search warrant for the 
Committee office in Minneapolis one year ago on 
September 24 during the raids. While under 
arrest, the FBI attempted to question Carlos 
about his political activism and the 
Road Socialist Organization. We demand all 
charges be dropped and the political repression end now.

Please take the following steps to the support 
Carlos Montes and the 23 Midwest activists facing FBI repression:

    * Sign the 
petition supporting Carlos Montes
    * Sign the 
to Resist FBI and Grand Jury Repression
    * Join a 
support committee of the CSFR or organize one in your town
to the legal defense fund
