   We received word from Rob 'Ruckus' Middaugh, Anarchist Political Prisoner 
in the United States informing us that additional federal charges are going 
to placed against him. These charges are in addition to the previous charges 
relating from the Long Beach attacks by the police during a May Day march in 
2001, where he was arrested and convicted to 3 years for assualt on a police 
officer. Apparently the FBI had an arrest warrent issued against Rob for an 
incident in Sacramento. He did not mention what that action was but what we 
do know is that the charges are the following: Forcibly assaulting a police 
officer (fedral charge), wearing a mask with intent to commit a crime (state 
charge), and weapons related charge (state charge).
   With these new charges, Middaugh could be facing 25 years to life due to 
what is known as the 3-strikes law in the state of California. Under this 
law, certain crimes are considered strikable offenses. When three or more of 
these crimes are committed by an individual that person can/will be sent to 
prison for 25 years to life.
   All charges that Robert Middaugh has received have been during political 
action. The first strike was during the protest against the Democratic 
National Convention where he was accused of being the leader of the Black 
Block. The second strike was during the Long Beach incident where he and 100 
other anarchist were arrested during an attack by police on May Day. These 
new charges could add his third strike. No news has been received as to when 
his trial will happen but we will keep everyone informed as soon as we here.
  We encourage everyone to write to Rob and let him know he is supported!!!!
