In the run-up to the NATO summit in Chicago, undercover police officers infiltrated activist circles in an attempt to entrap activists and discredit the protest movement. There are currently five activists facing terrorism-related charges as a result of police informants—even though the only terrorists in Chicago that weekend were the generals and heads of state behind NATO’s military endeavors.Unless and until a campaign is mobilized to defend activists from such repression, the government and law enforcement will continue to try to discredit and derail our movements. We need to stand together in order to oppose the government’s attempts to suppress our First Amendment rights to speech and assembly.They need your ideas, energy and creativity to make this campaign a success. Now is the time to get involved.
