*Sponsor An Activist (it might be you)* http://baamboston.org/abc/ldf.html
When the Democratic National Convention (DNC) invades the city of Boston this
summer (July 26-29th), we naturally can expect a handful of things to happen:
Huge amounts of taxpayer money will be funneled to corporate interests, the
public transportation system will be rerouted and disabled, police will roam
the street dressed like Ninja-Turtle Storm Troopers, local
businesses and communities will be stepped on, and
large numbers of our fellow activists and citizens
will be arbitrarily arrested to maintain the state
monopoly of power and force.

Inevitably, our comrades will be accused of absurd and
unsubstantiated charges. Regardless of the merit of
the arrests, our friends will still be sitting in a
jail cell as a result of these despotic acts. For
months now, the Boston Anarchist Black Cross (ABC) has
been actively building a fund to help provide for bail
during the DNC. Today, we are asking for help in this

In Massachusetts, the minimum bail is $40, and upon
release it is forfeited to the state. As a result, it
is crucial to collect funding prior to the convention.
We are asking for people to help us in this campaign
by "Sponsoring an Activist." While $40 is certainly
not a minimum, it is a good yardstick for measuring
how expensive it will be to free our friends and
lovers from the state. And hey, the activist you
might just be you.
