News from the unknown America in bourgeois media:


The Fight against Racism & Fascism is NOT a Crime!

Support the Tinley Park Five! Build Solidarity!

Pack the Courtroom, June 12!


On May 19 – one day before 15,000 anti-NATO protesters took to the streets of downtown Chicago – 18 anti-racist activists allegedly disrupted an “economic summit” held by members of the Illinois European Heritage Association (IEHA) at a restaurant in Tinley Park, a Chicago suburb.


The IEHA, along with Stormfront, the “Nationalist Socialist Movement” and other KKK types belonging to the “Pioneer Little Europe (PLE) movement,” seeks “to establish mutually supportive white supremacist enclaves throughout the United States,” according to the Anti-Defamation League website. According to the ADL, Stormfront has a worldwide forum in various languages with “over 6 million posts, 490,000 discussion threads, and 170,000 members.”


While the Department of Homeland Security, the Chicago police and other federal, state and local agencies were working overtime to wiretap, arrest and spy on anti-NATO activists, they allowed neo-fascists who openly promote the extermination of people of color and Jewish people to meet publicly in a restaurant.

Five of the anti-racists from Indiana were arrested on May 19. They have become known as the Tinley Park Five. Jason W. Sutherland, Cody L. Sutherland, Dylan J. Sutherland, Alex R. Stuck and John S. Tucker are currently imprisoned in Cook County Jail in Chicago. The Five, who are white, are facing major felony charges, including “mob action, criminal damage to property and aggravated battery.” The bond is $175,000 each for three of the defendants, $200,000 for another and $250,000 for the other. Another 13 others allegedly involved in the incident are being sought by the police.


The Five are scheduled to have a 9 a.m. hearing on Tuesday, June12, at the Bridgeview Courthouse, 10220 S. 76th Ave., Bridgeview, Ill. Conscious anti-racist, anti-fascist activists are urged to pack the courtroom to show their solidarity. Hoosiers Anti-Racist Movement/"Indiana Antifa Support" wants to send a strong message to the movement that one of the main goals of packing the courtroom is to allow family members to have a crowd to blend into, since there is a possibility of retaliation from white supremacists, including death threats simply for attending the hearing. HARM requests that supporters not disrupt the courtroom proceedings, for similar reasons.


The media has attempted to violence-bait and demonize the Five in order to divert attention away from the real terrorists – the IEHA and other white supremacist terrorists who hide behind the First Amendment to openly call for racist genocide. One of the IEHA members had been arrested on May 19 for illegally possessing a firearm in his car near the restaurant. His bond was only $25,000!


The International Action Center is urging all progressives to stand in solidarity with the Five on June12 by attending the court hearing in Bridgeview or calling a solidarity action in your area for the Five on that day. Let’s not allow the media, the police and the government to politically isolate the Five. Such isolation only serves to weaken our movement and the struggle for social justice.


No matter how one views whether and when to use militant tactics, the Tinley Park Five had the political right to carry out a preemptive strike to help expose the real danger that divide-and-conquer, fascistic extremist groups pose to the movement and the masses here and worldwide.

DROP ALL CHARGES AGAINST RICHIE ARMSTRONG, THOMAS THREATT, EARL KING AND WILLIAM SIMMS NOW!
PROTESTING FOR JOBS IS NOT A CRIME!

Don’t Let Richie Armstrong, Thomas Threatt, Earl King and William Simms stand alone.

Please sign the petition HERE.

Protest: Wed., June 6, 8 A.M. to 9 A.M., Eastside District Court at Harford Rd. & North Ave. Baltimore

If you live in Baltimore and are able to join the protest and press conference, please come out, Wednesday, June 6, 2012 in front of the Court House at Harford Road and North Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21213, from 8 A.M. to 9 A.M. The East Baltimore 4’s trial is scheduled for Room 3 at 9 A.M. The defendants are innocent!

On March 29th, Community Churches United called for a jobs march to a construction site near Johns Hopkins Hospital, an area of Baltimore City slated for demolition and development. Residents of this Eastside neighborhood have been fighting for fairness in the destruction of their homes and they have been demanding jobs in the redevelopment of this area by the East Baltimore Development Inc.

The EBDI has broken promises and fallen short on jobs promises. East Baltimore has been hard hit by joblessness and foreclosures.

Protesters met with police violence and brutality.

This shocking video shows it all: http://youtu.be/tv7hUcdl5AQ

Instead of charging the police who violated the rights of the protesters — four protesters including organizers were singled out and arrested. They face a variety of charges, some of the four with as many as six counts, including the famous catch all charges of disorderly conduct, failure to obey a peace officer, and loitering.

The East Baltimore Four are innocent! They need everyone's help. If the police can silence protest through arrests and brutality — it is a blow against all of us whether we are in the Occupy movement, with a union, fighting to stop racism, war, or injustice no matter where we live or reside.

The Justice 4 Trayvon Martin Organizing Committee in Maryland that held the March 26, 2012 protest in downtown Baltimore (www.Justice-4-Trayvon.org) is appealing to people everywhere from Los Angeles to New York City and everywhere in between. We in Baltimore cannot do it alone. Help us with this fight!

Please take just one moment to sign the petition

MEET US IN CHICAGO AT

"ABOLISH NATO" EVENTS

JOIN US AND ACTIVISTS FROM AROUND THE WORLD
IN CONFERENCES, MEETINGS AND IN THE STREETS TO SAY:

Abolish NATO: Tool of the 1 Percent

No War on Iran!

We need revolutionary change!
End capitalism, racism and war!
Fight for unity, solidarity and socialism!


The North Atlantic Treaty Organization or NATO, is the military arm of the 1 percent worldwide that is laying waste to sovereign nations and destroying the planet through sanctions and numerous other forms of violent wars.

 

Workers World Party is mobilizing for opposition to NATO in Chicago. Join us at our May 17 public meeting in Chicago and at many other events including the first-ever meeting of the U.S. Chapter of the International League of Peoples’ Struggle (see below).

 

For months, Chicago Democratic Mayor Rahm Emanuel and other politicians, on behalf of the 1 percent, has lead the attacks against the Coalition Against NATO/G8. They have attempted to shred constitutional rights, are attacking unions and shutting down health clinics while giving millions of dollars of the people’s tax money to the racist war makers for “security” purposes. The people are not intimidated and are coming to Chicago from across the world to demand a world free of racism, bank bailouts and perpetual war. We want a world where the 99 percent run society for our interests and our needs.

 

Workers World Party members are participating in the resistance against NATO and will be demanding Abolish NATO! Hands Off Iran and Syria! Money for Jobs, Housing, Healthcare, Food, Education and Other Human Needs, not racism and war. We will be in the streets, at the People’s Summit, Occupy Wall Street events and wherever the people are fighting back in Chicago. Look for our banners, signs and literature tables.

 

Join us to fight back against NATO and the rest of 1 percent. Join the fight for better world, a socialist world!
