Scare Tactics: A Fundraiser for the NATO 3

* What: Super awesome fundraiser!

* When: Saturday, Oct. 26, 7:30pm-midnight

* Where: The Orphanage, 643 West 31st Street, Chicago, Illinois 60616

* $5 suggested donation at the door.

Scare tactics are used all over the world to control the population, such as during the Chicago NATO summit in May 2012. In the lead up to this summit, we saw the arrest of five anti-NATO activists after undercover cops infiltrated the Occupy movement. Co-defendants Brent Betterly, Jared Chase, and Brian Church were 3 of these activists who were charged with 11 felonies, some of which were brought under the Illinois state terrorism statutes. Their attorneys challenged the terrorism statute as unconstitutional on its face and as applied to this case, but the judge denied their motion to dismiss the terrorism charges on March 27, 2013. The judge has since denied other motions to dismiss some or all of the charges, so the defendants continue to fight these politically motivated charges. Their joint trial is currently scheduled for early January 2014.

These young men need support and solidarity, so please join us for a night of food, games, music, burlesque, and poetry! Show up in your scariest costume for our costume contest. The winner of the contest will receive super awesome NATO 3 gear.
