FIGHT STATE REPRESSION! PROTEST PATRIOT ACT!



When: April 6th 2002

Time: 1:00PM

Where: Westwood Federal Building (11000 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA

90024)

On October 26, 2001, President George Bush signed into law the "Uniting and

Strengthening America" by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept

and Obstruct Terrorism Act (H.R. 3162, the USA PATRIOT Act).

Rushed through Congress with little debate and even less public input, the

USA PATRIOT Act seriously erodes any last constitutional protections we

might have left, particularly for immigrants, while giving the government

new power to label dissent as "terrorist activity".

On Jan 24, heavily armed FBI agents raided the home of Sherman A. Founder of

Los Angeles based anarchist web site and collective, Raise the Fist. The

founder was then arrested in NY at the WEF demonstrations almost a week

later after being targeted by secret service. After 30 hours in jail and

being interrogated by U.S political police, RTF founder was turned over to

the feds and incarcerated in 'high-security' MCC federal prison for 13 days

before charges were dropped, "pending further i investigation". The search

warrant and arrest warrant were both executed by Special Agents at Westwood

Federal Building.

Thousands of Arab people, South Asian people and Muslims have been violently

attacked inside the United States. Homes, mosques and stores have been

defaced. People of Arab and South Asian descent have been put off airplanes.

Main media outlets, like the Wall Street Journal, have called for

legitimizing racial profiling. This is racism pure and simple. After Timothy

McVeigh blew up the Oklahoma City Federal building in 1995, killing 168

people, there was no campaign to take white males off of airplanes because

people felt "uncomfortable" in their presence. White men were not rounded up

and held without charges. Since September 11, however, more than 1,000

people, mostly of Middle East origin, have been detained, many since Sept.

11 and many without charges.

WHEN WILL THE OPPRESSION END?



STOP THE ATTACK ON FREE SPEECH!

CONDEMN THE ATTACK ON RAISE THE FIST!

STOP THE ATTACK ON ARABS AND PEOPLE OF COLOR!

STOP THE INVASION OF PRIVACY!

STOP OPERATION COINTELPRO!

STOP STATE REPRESSION!

STOP AMERICA'S NEW DECEPTIVE "WAR ON TERRORISM"!
