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.

We will be joined by other activists who will speak on the current targeting of Arab and Muslim communities and government raids in undocumented and immigrant communities.

There will be simultaneous translation into Spanish at this event.

This event is sponsored by: The Bay Area Committee to Stop Political Repression, Black Alliance for Just Immigration, and the Center for Political Education
