Global Voice For Justice

Thursday, March 25th, 7 p.m.  New York City

“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.

Panelists include:

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.

Alicia Mc Williams, aunt of David Williams, one of the Newburgh Four, the men charged with the attempted bombing of the Riverdale Temple.

Faisal Hashmi, brother of Fahad Hashmi, who has been in pre-trial solitary confinement for over two years under the charges of providing material aid to Al-Qaeda.

Lynne Jackson, founder and director of Project Salam, an organization devoted to researching and documenting the United States Justice Department’s post-9/11 terrorism-related prosecutions and convictions to determine whether, in each case, there was substantial evidence of criminality or simply evidence unfairly concocted and/or twisted to convict innocent Muslims.
