Interview: The NATO3 Defense Committee


A special thanks goes out to the NATO3 Defense Committee for having a member join us last Saturday. We appreciate, and stand in solidarity with, your work to support all prisoners of this system. Brent, Jared, and Brian are now heroes of this movement. Who knows if they really intended on it, but they have managed to take on the force of anti-democratic hostility served by the state, and delivered a defeat to the overzealous prosecution. Surely, the cost to them and their family is enormous. That is why we say they are heroes.

It says a lot about the radical community here that groups like the NATO 3 defense committee have formed to support those who came from elsewhere to fight this fight; and got nabbed in the process. Let us hold the NATO3 in our thoughts and prayers, and advocate for leniency in their pending sentences.

Please check out the support site, and donate to their jail fund if you can.
