Carlos Montes urgently needs your solidarity! Please sign our petition hosted at the IAC site. Share it with your family, friends and co-workers. Signing the petition will generate a direct email to District Attorney Cooley, demanding he drop the charges against Carlos Montes.

Carlos Montes goes on trial June 20th, 2012 because District Attorney Steve Cooley is moving forward with the FBI-initiated political prosecution against this long time veteran Chicano leader and anti-war, labor and immigrant rights activist. Along with the FBI, District Attorney Steve Cooley is attempting to imprison Carlos Montes on charges stemming from 42 years ago, when he led a Chicano student strike at East L.A. College to demand Chicano studies.

Steve Cooley is the official face of political repression, targeting Carlos Montes in an attempt to imprison him for over 5 years. The trial of Carlos Montes is designed to repress our movements for peace, justice, equality and freedom. Now is the time! The stakes are high! We can win through solidarity!

Please sign the petition today.
