Support the Quebec City Action

Free Jaggi Singh!

Organizer Jaggi Singh was abducted by undercover police on Friday, April 20 in the midst of the Quebec City actions. He is presently being denied bail and charged with possession of a deadly weapon: a catapult used to hurl stuffed animals over the fence! Jaggi¹s real crime is that he is an organizer, a hard and dedicated worker for justice, and a man of color whom the authorities can target. Please write and call to demand his release. If they can do it to Jaggi, they can do it to any one of us!

In San Francisco, we will march to the Canadian Consulate on Tuesday, May 1. Meet at 3:30 p.m. at Market and Montgomery. Please come and join if you can!
