Workers World Party public meeting:

Fascism: What it is and how to fight it

SATURDAY – AUGUST 4, 2012 – 5 P.M

On May 19, 2012 anti-fascist activists confronted a summit meeting of Nazi, KKK and other white supremacist groups in the Chicago suburb of Tinley Park. They were gathered to discuss and organize genocide against people of color and Jewish people at a time when violent attacks on minorities are taking place around the country.

Five of the anti-fascist, anti-racist youth were arrested. Jason W. Sutherland, Cody L. Sutherland, Dylan J. Sutherland, Alex R. Stuck and John S. Tucker are being held in jail, unable to raise the outrageous bail of $1 million.

The film “Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand Up” is a recent Cuban production documenting the decades of U.S. sponsored terrorism and updating the case of the Cuban 5 prisoners in U.S. jails for trying to expose Cuban exile terrorism being plotted right here in the U.S.

From an IMDb.com review:

Award-winning director Saul Landau embarks on an in-depth exploration of Miami-Havana politics through the story of the Cuban 5, a group of spies sent by the Castro government to infiltrate right-wing terrorist organizations in Miami. When the spies turned over evidence of US-based terrorism to the FBI, they themselves were arrested, tried, and convicted in Florida courts while the confessed anti-Castro terrorists live freely in Florida.

Director: Saul Landau

Stars: Fidel Castro, Danny Glover and Saul Landau
