BACKGROUND

A broad community is coming together to defend Boston City Councilor Chuck
Turner's civil rights –and the democratic rights of the district he
represents. Ultimately, these are the civil and democratic rights of us all.

Councilor Turner is a distinguished and tireless leader in the fight for
justice, peace, and democracy – in Boston and far beyond. Few elected
officials have the conviction and integrity to stand apart from the culture
of influence and to speak out as Chuck Turner has for critical causes from
universal health care to peace, civil liberties and civil rights,
community-based green jobs, campaign finance reform, foreclosure protection,
prison/CORI reform, economic justice, and more. We have been fortunate to
count on him in difficult times.

Since November, Chuck Turner has been under assault by an FBI sting
operation amplified by a smear campaign from hostile media. For those who
have actually read the FBI affidavit, however, it is clear the FBI case
lacks both evidence of wrongdoing and reasonable cause for mounting a sting
in the first place. This suggests the case against Turner may represent the
political-targeting and voice-silencing efforts associated with the FBI in
the past. See: <http://boston.indymedia.org/feature/display/206999/index.php

prosecutors office, and how to contribute to help cover his expenses, please
