Oakland protest demands: Drop the charges against Carlos Montes

By Silas Weatherby

Oakland, CA – More than 20 people came a rally on Dec. 14 at the Oakland Federal Building in support of veteran Chicano leader Carlos Montes, who was in court in Los Angeles that same day.

Montes faces trumped up charges as a result of the FBI-orchestrated campaign against anti-war and international solidarity activists. His next court appearance is set for Jan. 24.

Members of the Bay Area Committee against Political Repression pledged to continue the fight to get the charges dropped against Carlos, and to drop the subpoenas against the other 23 solidarity activists from around the country.
