Bay Area activists rally to oppose FBI and Grand Jury political attacks

Oakland, CA (June 16, 2011) – Dozens for Bay Area activists rallied this evening in front of the Federal Building in downtown Oakland to “resist government attacks against activists”. On May 17, 2011 the SWAT Team of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department and members of the FBI raided the home of Carlos Montes, a long time Chicano activist and active member of the Committee to Stop FBI Repression. Carlos was scheduled to appear in court today. “Defend Carlos Montes! Drop the Charges Now!” Courage to Resist activists join the rally to also support Bradley Manning Support Network organizer David House who refused to answer questions from a Grand Jury in Virginia seeking information about WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, and Bradley Manning yesterday.
