Vigil in Support of
The Newburgh Four
Friday, May 28th, 9:30 A.M. to 11 A.M.
The Newburgh Four have court hearing at 10 A.M.
On May 20, 2009, federal and New York City authorities arrested four men on charges of plotting domestic terrorist attacks in the Riverdale section of the Bronx. Lawyers for the men, now known as the Newburgh Four, recently filed a motion to dismiss the federal charges, citing entrapment by a paid government informant.
The indictment of the Newburgh Four is just one in a long series of illegal entrapments. The FBI hires Muslim criminals as agents provocateur to infiltrate Muslim communities and try to involve innocent law abiding members in illegal activities by large gifts of money, friendship, trickery and manipulation. The same criminal agent provocateur who entrapped two men in Albany was able to entrap the four men in Newburgh. One had mental problems, one was a cocaine addict, one was homeless. The agent reportedly offered them tens of thousands of dollars to join the conspiracy. The FBI’s claim that these entrapments are legitimate law enforcement activities that make us safer is ridiculous and shocking. The use of agents provocateur by the FBI is morally wrong and a danger to the rule of law in this country.
We invite you to join our vigil in support of the Newburgh Four.
Justice For The Newburgh Four!
