Minneapolis, MN - A group of supporters gathered at the intersection of Chicago Avenue and Lake Street during a sunny south Minneapolis rush hour May 15, in support of Carlos Montes, on the first scheduled day of his trial.

The protest, organized by the Minnesota branch of the Committee to Stop FBI Repression (CSFR), passed out fliers and gathered petition signatures about the case. Steff Yorek of CSFR gave an update regarding Montes’ court date in Los Angeles. She reported, "Due to a new development in the case, the trial was moved to June 20. The new development deals with obtaining information needed to clarify the legal record. The June 20 date gives time to investigate this information that would help defeat this attack against Carlos and our movement.”

Yorek concluded, "The struggle continues, we will continue to demand ‘drop the charges’ and await the new findings that will clear the charges. If not, we go to trial on June 20, 2012."
