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.
