Join the South Bay Committee Against Political Repression's musical benefit for veteran Chicano activist and victim of political repression, Carlos Montes. Carlos Montes, a former Brown Beret and long-time anti-war and equal rights activist in Los Angeles, is being targeted for his political activities by the FBI.

In May of this year, Montes' house was raided by armed FBI agents, who literally broke down his door, ransacked his house, and confiscated his computer and other private possessions. Montes was arrested and falsely charged with violating firearms regulations, to which he pleaded not guilty. The FBI's raid and arrest of Montes comes alongside a recent FBI harassment campaign against international solidarity and anti-war activists, including unprovoked nation-wide FBI raids of activist offices and homes and grand jury subpoenas for peace activists.

Join us for musical performances by the Word, Ragtop with DJ David8, and Konciensia Directa, and spoken performances by Felicia Montes (Carlos Montes' daughter), Adriana and Cynthia Garcia, Sandra Huerta, and Debora Godinez.

This event is sponsored by the South Bay Committee Against Political Repression, co-sponsored by the Green Party of Santa Clara County, the San Jose Peace and Justice Center, MAIZ, and endorsed by Anakbayan Silicon Valley and San Jose Code Pink.
