Hello CSFR Organizers and Supporters,

We invite you to attend a conference call to organize support for Carlos Montes as he goes to court on Wednesday, July 6. Carlos' situation is serious, but we also have opportunities to reach out and broaden support against the FBI repression. We took note that the early morning protest in Los Angeles was large, as was the protest in the Bay Area. As well we are seeing the Chicano/Mexicano and immigrants' rights movements leading solidarity events and protests in places from El Paso, Texas to Chicago, Illinois. So please make time to be on this important organizing call. It will only take one hour.

in solidarity, Tom Burke

If you dial in during the first five minutes of the call, then it is good to announce yourself and your city or local committee. If you are coming on later, please do NOT announce yourself. We will call on cities for reports and please say your name and local group when you begin to speak.
