Saturday May 19, 2012 five antifascists were arrested in Tinley Park, a Chicago Suburb, for allegedly assaulting a number of white-supremacist organizers. Help us raise funds for their support and costly legal defense. One of the alleged “victims” was arrested on warrants for child pornography and another was arrested for possessing a firearm as a convicted felon. Bond has been set at nearly $1 Million dollars for the alleged attackers. Legal funds are needed in order to secure adequate legal representation and ensure that their families are taken care of until they are released.
Bail is collectively set at $925k, $250k for one defendant, $200k for another, and $175k each for the remaining three arrestees; a legal fund has been set up in defense of those arrested.
