There will be a rally tomorrow, Friday 10/11/02 at 1:00 PM in front of the Federal Courthouse at SW 3rd and Main. His bail hearing is at 1:00, and his attorney, Stanley Cohen, has requested support for the Imam. He is still in jail - he has not been granted bail. He has been held without bail since September 13. He was denied bail because he was said to be a "flight risk" and because of the so-called tnt residue in his brother's suitcase. Since the FBI lab found there was no TNT residue, he should be allowed bail. Social Security Fraud, which is what he is being held for, does not qualify as "terrorist activity!" Please show up at the federal courthouse if you can, in solidarity with the Imam and Portland's Muslim and Somali communities.
Spread the word!
