Invite You to a

Rally and March

In Support of

Yassin Aref and
Mohammed Hossain

Friday, July 12, 2013 at 6:00 PM

The rally will be held at the Masjid As-Salam, 278 Central Avenue, Albany.

At 7:30 PM, the march will step off from the Masjid As-Salam

Yassin Aref - A Victim of Mistaken Identity

The rally and march will focus on a new appeal motion filed in the case of Yassin Aref.

Through a recent FOIL (Freedom of Information Law) request, Yassin's defense attorneys learned about secret evidence that misidentified Yassin as an Al-Qaeda agent. This evidence, which led to his conviction, was apparently shown to the trial judge and appeal court, but not to the defense.

The government convicted the wrong man. Yassin is not a terrorist.

Please sign the Petition for Yassin Aref - A Case of Mistaken Identity

To publicize the importance of this motion, and to emphasize to the judge that Albany has not forgotten this case, Lynne Jackson, accompanied by other supporters, will walk 133 miles from Yassin's home city of Albany, New York to hand-deliver the petition to the judge, who is located in Binghamton, New York.

Speakers at the rally, beginning at 6:00 PM:

Shamshad Ahmad will speak about the case and its impacts on the Muslim community.

Honorable Dominick Calsolaro will speak about the Albany Resolution, passed by the Albany City Council in April 2010, asking for a special prosecutor to be apppointed to investigate cases of preemptive prosecution of Muslims.

Kathy Manley, Esq. will address the secret evidence and mistaken identity issues raised in the 2255 motion.

Lynne Jackson will outline the walk to deliver the petitions to the home court of the judge.
