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
