The case of Ernst Jean-Jacques (Shimmy) is unfolding in the context of a 
deep social crisis. Fascists have been getting a wider hearing in recent 
years, have been acting more boldly, and enjoy a high degree of 
impunity. The ultra-rightist movement seeks to counter the gains of the 
antiracist movement, unions, and mobilizations defending women, LGBT 
folks, migrants, etc. They seek over time to smash the unions, steal 
elections, and eliminate the right of working people and the oppressed 
to organize independently. These developments have been playing out in 
Massachusetts and in states across the country. Shimmy’s case is yet 
another example of fascists trying to frame up an innocent black man for 
an assault that did not happen. Let's unite in solidarity!

Please attend Shimmy’s trial which begins on Tuesday, November 30^th ^at 
9 AM at the Lynn Courthouse (580 Essex St, Lynn, MA 01901). If possible, 
please try to show up at 8:30 AM.See the link to the trial flier below. 
Please circulate it widely. See you there!
