International Solidarity: Arizona Antifascist Facing Possible Prison Sentence

„Saturday, November 13th, 2010 the National Socialist Movement gathered in downtown Phoenix, Arizona, as a part of their humorously titled “Reclaim the Southwest 2” tour. The NSM consider themselves to be on the forefront of the push toward more draconian, discriminatory, and racist laws, and increased militarization on the southern border. This is the context for anti-fascist action in Arizona. Anarchists resisted and some now face intense state repression.

Dane Rossman, of Tucson, AZ, is in need of urgent support in the face of multiple felony charges stemming from the riot which occurred on that day. In a worst case scenario, Dane could be looking at over 20 years in prison. He is charged with 6 counts of aggravated assault and 1 count of rioting.

As of right now, Dane is out on bail and attending scheduled court dates until trial in May. No plea offer has been made so far and it remains difficult to tell how aggressively the state is pursuing the charges. Dane and his supporters are currently attempting to obtain private counsel and strongly feel that this could be the best route for things to work out as well as possible for Dane – that is, to keep Dane out of prison.

Please help out Dane in any way you can, financially or otherwise, and forward this information to anyone interested in the ongoing struggles against white supremacy and fascism.“
