During the anti-fraa demonstrations yesterday about 150
people (according to the corporate media) were arrested. We are seeking
donations to help cover bail costs for these people. Specifically, three
comrades from New Jersey, members of Bergen Action Network, were arrested
trying to enter the AFL-CIO rally. A US marshall profiled anarchists out a
check point at the entrance of the ampitheatre where the union rally was
being held. Police in full riot gear aggressively pushed their way into
the crowd attacking with batons, several protestors were injured and three
were arrested as protestors and steel-workers intervened against the
brutality. Later police used tasers on the arrestees while they laid on
the ground in handcuffs. These three people are currently being held on
the following bails; $10,000, $5,000 and $5,000 respectively. One person
is being charged with resisting arrest and violence against a police
officer, and another with resisting arrest and violence against a police
officer and firefighter and the third person, who was specifically
targeted, was charged with assault on an undercover police officer. All
of their arraignments are happening this morning. Please help bail out our
comrades. If you would like to donate money to these cases specifically
wire money to Chris Whalen and please call him and tell him you are
sending money and how much so he knows to pick it up. Chris can be
reached at (201) 679-7441. To donate money to general bail or legal costs
please see ftaa.imc.org Please check for more information on the Bergen
Action website at www.bergenaction.net you can also send money for general
legal costs to BAN legal defense fund, PO Box 5202, Englewood, New Jersey
07631. For more information you can leave a message at (201)378-7377 or
email info@bergenaction.net. If you need to actually speak to someone
please contact Chris Whalen. Any help is very much appreciated.

It is the aim of the Bergen Action Network to recognize and develop
the vast potential inherent among the young towards the creation of
a broad, grassroots, youth-based network capable of serving as an
outlet for political expression and a catalyst for radical social
change. We develop, evaluate, support and disseminate campaigns that
foster the ethical, social, and intellectual empowerment of those
involved by actively promoting economic, environmental, and human
justice causes while exploring their local and international links.
We are dedicated to maintaining a specific emphasis upon the youth
of Bergen County, New Jersey and to operating as a decentralized,
nonhierarchical organization.
