Hands Off Amber Abreu! Class Struggle Defense Bulletin #1

Working Class Emancipation | Hands off Amber Abreu!
Drop all the charges now!
Free abortions on demand!
Women's liberation through socialist revolution!
Organizing update

Working Class Emancipation's first trip to Lawrence and Boston, MA to organize defense for Amber Abreu was a limited success, with about twenty-five volunteers signing up to help with the defense campaign. Fliers for this Friday's protest are being distributed by our volunteers at Lawrence High School and among the members of the United Nurses and Allied Professionals union (UNAP) in Rhode Island. But there is much more work to be done, and the defense campaign requires a much higher level of organization and activity to have any chance of success. It's time to step up distribution of the protest flier and of this, and forthcoming, defense bulletins, time to call organizing meetings - even if they are just a handful of people initially - to discuss the next steps and coordinate work. It's time for all the organizations that claim to be for socialism or for abortion rights, to join us in a united front to mobilize for the picket on February 23. Everyone who defends Amber Abreu against these racist frame-up charges is welcome, as long as there are no restrictions on the participating groups' slogans and speech. All out for the picket line, Friday, February 23, starting at 8:30 AM: Lawrence District Court, 2 Appleton Street, Lawrence, MA!

Israeli anarchist asks court for jail time after conviction for protest

ISM-NYC | Jonathan Pollak: "It was not us who should have been standing accused here, but rather the architects and enforcers of Israeli Apartheid... I still believe that what I did was necessary and morally correct, and that resistance to oppression is the duty of every human being, even at a personal price."

Native Americans Today (IndyKids)

Griffin Epstein | Millions of native people inhabited North America thousands of years before the Europeans arrived. How did the Europeans colonize the land and push the native people out? The majority of native people, over 95 percent in some areas, died of European diseases. Others were massacred by the colonizers in what many historians call genocide (deliberate killing of an entire group of people). more...  3 Comments
