Rally to Support the Newburgh Four
We stand in solidarity with the families and defendants of the Newburgh Four Trial
Friday, October 22 from 4pm to 6pm
Corner of Liberty and Broadway in Newburgh (one block from City Hall)
These four African American men did not plan the crime and had no means or intent to commit such a crime, and yet they have been convicted and face life in prison. A government agent provocateur was implanted in Newburgh, one of the poorest cities in New York, and with offers of food, money, marijuana, cars and vacations, lured the four into collaborating on so-called "terror plots." Government tapes of their conversations indicate that the men thought the whole plot was a stunt.
As we accelerate our organizing to end the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Palestine, let us not forget the war at home that has been targeting African Americans for generations. The community has asked for our support; let us respond to their call.
This action is endorsed by WESPAC Foundation, Project SALAM, The Campaign to End the Death Penalty and the NYC Coalition to Stop Islamophobia.
