Sat, 2/25, "No to Islamophobia! Rally in Solidarity with Tarek Mehanna!"

RALLY ON BOSTON COMMON
SATURDAY, Feb 25th
 
EXPRESS YOUR OUTRAGE AT RACISM & ISLAMOPHOBIA
This Guilty Verdict is Unjust! Free Tarek NOW!

When: Saturday February 25th, 2012
What time: 2:00pm – 3:30pm
Where: The Gazebo on the Boston Common near Park Street 

This rally marks an important milestone in our support of Tarek and will include:

1. A written statement from Tarek Mehanna
2. The Free Tarek Campaign road map, 2012: Next Steps 
3. A number of engaging speakers from respected local groups.
4. Petition signature collecting
5. Information about how to get involved in the campaign for Tarek's release!

Together we will brave the snow to show our support for our brother Dr. Tarek Mehanna. Dr. Mehanna has been framed by the FBI and US Attorney’s office for refusing to become an informant against his own community. His trial was unfair, frought with government misconduct at all levels, and centered primarily on Tarek’s religious and political beliefs and statements. This unjust guilty verdict has harrowing ramifications for civil rights and freedom of speech, and it speaks volumes about the current level of racism and Islamophobia in this country.

Tarek Mehanna is a hero for refusing to participate in the U.S. Government's war on Arabs, Muslims, and communities of color. We demand a fair trial leading to his release!
