Carlos Montes is a former Brown Beret and long-time anti-war and equal rights activist in Lost Angeles, being targeted for his political activities by the FBI. In May of last 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 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.
