Fax or call Attorney General Jerry Brown all week, Oct. 5-9; support Cisco in court Oct. 9 – 8 a.m. rally, 9 a.m. hearing
by the Committee for the Defense of the San Francisco 8
Once again we are asking for your help with a phone and fax campaign to demand that California Attorney General Jerry Brown drop the charges against Francisco Torres, the last of the San Francisco 8 still facing prosecution. Brown has not yet dropped the charges against Cisco, but he knows there is no case against him. He needs to get the message from people all over the country that we will not give up this just demand.
In order for this fax campaign to be a success, we need you to help spread the word and take a few minutes to make the call and send the fax. Please send as many individual faxes as possible. We want to flood his office! And please also send us an email when you have done so at FreetheSF8@gmail.com (new working email).
You can use the phone script and fax script below or create your own. For more information on this COINTELPRO-style case, visit www.freethesf8.org.

I am calling to demand that Attorney General Jerry Brown drop all charges against Francisco Torres of the San Francisco 8. The state of California recognized that there was insufficient evidence to move forward with the case and dropped charges against four of the men. There is clearly no basis to prosecute Francisco Torres, the only remaining person facing charges in connection with this 38-year-old case, which is based on torture-coerced evidence. It is an incredible waste of money in this time of severe budget crisis to proceed with this case, and it is a huge injustice to Mr. Torres and his family. Drop all charges immediately!

Dear Attorney General Jerry Brown:
Thousands of people around the U.S. and the world have joined the call to drop all charges against the San Francisco 8. On July 6 the state of California recognized that there was insufficient evidence to move forward with the case and dropped charges against four of the men. There is clearly no basis to prosecute Francisco Torres, the only remaining person facing charges in connection with this 38-year-old case which is based on torture-coerced evidence. It would be an unconscionable waste of taxpayer money and an egregious injustice to Mr. Torres and his family to proceed with this case. I urge you in the strongest possible terms to drop the charges against Francisco Torres immediately!
