Personal Stories of Preemptive Prosecution Part II: A Call to Action!
Thursday December 16, 2010
Furman Hall, NYU

The time for speeches is over! Join us for the 1st ever Town Hall meeting with family members of wrongly convicted terror-suspects post-9-11. Justice is still needed for these cases and this event will be for individuals wanting to learn what they can do to assist these families in receiving their constitutional rights. Each family will briefly discuss the current status of their loved one's case. As a grassroots coalition of affected families, solidarity activists/organizations, and concerned community members, we will then determine what efforts are needed for each case, and set action items to work as a community to respond to the injustice that comes with preemptive prosecutions, often perpetuated by FBI agent provocateurs.

This event is for you, your rights, your freedoms...
The time for feeling helpless is over,
it’s time to act,
get involved,
share resources,
and work to bring justice for all!

This will be a forum where all are welcome to collaborate and contribute to develop solutions.
