STAND against TORTURE & for FREEDOM of EXPRESSION

Please Forward Widely

Saturday, June 5th, 11:00 - 1:00

Armed Forces Recruiting Center, 141 Tremont St. (steps from Park St)

What to expect: ~An Energized Demonstration~ ~Political Theater~ ~Demands for Accountability~ ~Appearance of a Cabinet-Level Bush Official~

What it's all about:

Most of you know that the physical and psychological torture that took place at Abu Ghraib was not restricted to Iraq. These practices were already well established in Afghanistan and Guantanamo, where the Geneva Conventions have been deemed inconvenient. Moreover, military and media investigations have revealed that these acts were not the work of a few "bad apples," but were widespread. This is combined with the Red Cross's conclusion that 90% of Abu Ghraib's prisoners should never have been detained in the first place.

These gross injustices demand a response, but the Boston Police Department hasn't reviewed the Bill of Rights recently. One week ago, a small, peaceful demonstration at the recruiting center ended when an activist dressed as a prisoner was arrested. The story and photos are available at:

The pattern of arresting people on bogus charges to stifle dissent must be stopped. Having the charges thrown out a few months (or years) down the line does not preserve our freedom of expression. This ongoing police strategy is unconstitutional!

COME OUT SATURDAY TO DEMAND JUSTICE & SHOW THE CITY THAT WE WILL BE HEARD!!

I knew that I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed in the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today--my own government....we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values....

When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, militarism and economic exploitation are incapable of being conquered.
