On June 20, a month will have passed since Mayor 1% Emanuel and his cronies brought NATO to Chicago and subsequently caged five of our peaceful comrades. Brent, Jay, Jacob, Mark and Sebastian are still incarcerated on informant-created charges in order to justify the abject waste of taxpayer dollars on security for that war machine. Now is our chance to tell them that we haven't forgotten. The case against the NATO5 is flimsy and only served to pattern a narrative to deter socially-conscious people from leaving their homes. We have seen this pattern of police repression and state intimidation in cases such as Cleveland5, RNC 8, FBI raids on activists in Chicago. This pattern will continue unless we do take action to stop it.
Now is our time to tell RAHM, ANITA & GARRY to DISMISS ALL CHARGES AGAINST THE NATO FIVE!
USE YOUR VOICE against Mayor 1% Rahm Emanuel, the man who brought the NATO war machine to Chicago, and sicked his attack dog Garry McCarthy on the sea of peaceful protesters, singling out the NATO5 for rumored harassment, entrapment, and a frame-up.

SPEAK OUT to Anita Alvarez, State's Attorney, mouthpiece of the law, whose office is prosecuting the NATO5 under untried post-9/11 laws. She has yet to produce any evidence that supports the NATO3 terrorist cases.

DECLARE TO Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy, whose department targeted our brothers Brent, Jacob, Brian, Mark and Sebastian. McCarthy's officers targeted them, harassed them, raided their home without a search warrant, disappeared them, and in one case, doesn't know the difference between home beer-brewing supplies and molotov cocktails.
