The NATO 3 will be sentenced this Friday, April 25. Please join us in court for this next step in their ordeal if you are in or around Chicago. No matter where you are, you can refresh your memory of what they endured during their grueling trial by reading the zine we are proud to release today:
*“Let’s Make These [Molotovs] So I Can Go Bomb a F—- Bank”: The Failed Terrorism Case Against the NATO 3*
color version for online reading: https://freethenato3.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/nato-3-trial-zine-color-screen1.pdf
Help us get this out there!
The zine collects all our announcements from their trial, from jury selection through the verdict, to provide an anatomy of the state’s failed attempt to convict our comrades as terrorists. The title of the zine comes from one of the undercover cops who entrapped Brent, Jacob, and Jay. Throughout the case, the undercovers pushed the defendants to talk about and ultimately to create Molotovs. “”Mo,”” the one who uttered this phrase, was the first to bring up Molotovs in the case at all and on May 16, 2012–the day the defendants were arrested.
After the NATO 3 are sentenced, we will update this zine and create a black & white version for printing so it can me more easily printed and shared with others–particularly our comrades behind bars.
Date: Friday, 4/25
Time: starting at 10am
Place: Cook County Criminal Courthouse, Courtroom TBA
Post-trial motions will be heard in the morning, and actual sentencing will likely be in the afternoon.

Please come out for a noise demo at Cook County Jail to show the NATO 3 love and solidarity before being moved from Chicago, as well as all prisoners awaiting trial there.

Let’s let them know that they are not alone as they face transfer, and go through the appeals process, and show all prisoners at CCJ some solidarity.
