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.

Carlos Montes and the 23 Midwest activists facing FBI repression:
