Tarek Mehanna is a young Muslim man from the Boston area who was recently arrested by the FBI after refusing to be an informant against the Muslim community. He is currently being held illegally in 23-hour solitary confinement.

Join us to celebrate the release of the Free Tarek! Compilation CD, an educational fundraising project to help free our brother Tarek. The CD consists of more than 30 artists who have donated their music to raise awareness about FBI repression and related struggles against racism and oppression. The CD has plenty of brand new material recorded specifically in support of Tarek, and features a musically diverse array of movement artists like Rebel Diaz, Climbing Poetree, Hasan Salaam, Sabreena Da Witch, Evan Greer, and Taina Asili. CDs are $10 - 25 sliding scale and will be available online as well as at the show!
