The Fort Dix Five. Yassin Aref. The Newburgh Four. "Homegrown terrorists" stopped dead in their tracks, or victims of FBI entrapment? A panel of speakers will discuss these cases in light of the FBI's campaign since 9/11 that includes preemptive prosecution, the targeting of Muslim communities and the use of agent provocateurs and informants to entrap innocent people.
Videos available for the folowing speakers:
El-Hajj Mauri’ Saalakhan, Director of Operations for The Peace and Justice Foundation - a Muslim led grassroots human rights organization based in Metropolitan Washington, DC, and lead convener for the May 6, 2010, mass mobilization for political prisoner, Dr. Aafia Siddiqui.
Lynne Jackson, a volunteer and one of the founders of Project Salam, an internet group that believes many innocent Muslims were targeted, prosecuted, and convicted in the hysteria following 9/11 and the Bush Administration’s violations of the US Constitution. The organization’s mission is to identify as many of these cases as possible, to advocate for their release, and to make sure that their names and the injustices against them are not forgotten.
