INFO:
On Saturday, August 24 a group of twenty-eight anti-fascists were arrested
in Baltimore on an action designed to prevent buses of National Alliance
supporters from reaching their rally in Washington D.C. The rally in D.C.
consisted of a protest at the U.S. Capital Building, followed up by a
'Rock Against Israel' concert billing Brutal Attack, H8 Machine, Definite
Hate, Celtic Warrior, and Max Resist.

A busload of Hammerskins and supporters from Detroit were attacked by
Baltimore anti-fascists who apparently wrought some serious damage to the
vehicle and its occupants. At least one account attests to rumors that the
vocalist of Max Resist had sour relations with a tire iron.

When a separate contingent of anti-fascists arrived on the scene, police
arrested them on trumped up felony charges. When these twenty-eight
activists were finally allowed to see commissioners, some of them were
released on their own recognizance while others received bail amounts
upwards of $10,000. None of these activists had committed any crime, nor
were they told what they were being charged with until after they had been
interviewed. Bail was raised and all of them are now out of jail, but many
have lost their jobs and are all facing legal fees.

The National Alliance claimed to police that they were confronted by
anti-fascists in the morning. If so, the attackers had been there and left
well before the twenty-eight had arrived. The police decided to round up
anyone in the parking lot and are attempting to pin any real or imagined
crimes on these activists.

Financial donations are still needed for legal support. Personal checks or
money orders should be made out to Black Planet Books, earmarked for legal
defense fund, and sent to:
