On May 17th, 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 leader of the famous student walkouts in East LA against the Vietnam War. More recently, he has organized Southern California's Chicano community to speak out against war and empire, and is an active member of the Los Angeles Committee to Stop FBI Repression. Carlos will discuss how to defend our right to political expression and to protect our communities from government targeting and surveillance.
There will be simultaneous translation into Spanish at this event.
Dinner plates are on sale for $12 and includes Tostadas, beans, rice, salad and a soft drink. Proceeds go to Carlos' defense fund.
This event is sponsored by: Watsonville Brown Berets, Santa Cruz Community Coalition Against Racism, the Resource Center for Nonviolence, and Santa Cruz Barrios Unidos.
