HOW TO HELP
1. Organize a screening for the award-winning documentary US vs Al-Arian in your local community. See the video trailer on this website or in youtube Videotrailer also visit the documentary's official website: Documentary
2. Call Senator Patrick Leahy (202) 224- 4242 and Congressman John Conyers (202) 225-5126 the Judicial Committee chairman of the Senate and ranking member of the House respectively - and ask them to meet with the Attorney General and have him demand that Assistant USA Attorney Gordon Kromberg be reigned in and stopped from going forward with this unlawful indictment. Even if you are not their constituent, they are obliged to listen to your opinion since their duties extend to all Americans. [Note: Mr. Leahy and Mr. Conyers are already well-aware of this case, so it is not necessary to give background information to it.]
3. Write a letter to the Attorney General and ask him to review the case and honor the plea agreement with Dr. Al-Arian
The Honorable Eric Holder
4. Write a letter to the Office of Professional Responsibility at the Justice Department
Robin C. Ashton, Counsel
II. HOW TO HELP OUT EVEN MORE
8. Call the Honorable John Conyers, Ranking Member of the Judiciary Committee in the United States House of Representatives: (202) 225-5126. Tell him to contact the Department of Justice and the ICE and to demand that Dr. Al-Arian be allowed to leave as soon as possible in accordance with the terms of the plea agreement. (see talking points in 10 below)
- Dr. Al-Arian has not been found guilty by the jury in a 6 months trial in 2005;
- He signed a plea agreement with the government which clearly stipulated that:
- He would be allowed to leave as soon as possible.
- He would NOT be required to testify or cooperate in any other investigation.
- Despite this, a federal prosecutor in Virginia subpoened Dr. Al-Arian to testify in a blatant disregard for the terms of the plea agreement.
- Dr. Al-Arian's prison term ended --> his indictment since is then COMPLETELY ILLEGAL
- Dr. Al-Arian is clearly being persecuted for his political beliefs.
