An excerpt from Democracy Now! on May 16, 2012:
AMY GOODMAN: As an immigrants’ rights activist, as a member of the Committee to Stop FBI Repression, why are you going to Chicago this weekend?
CARLOS MONTES: I am going to Chicago to be in unity with the Iraqi veterans, with the immigrant rights activists, with my Boricua brothers and sisters, my African-American brothers and sisters, with the unions, the antiwar activists. I want to be there in unity to denounce the summit of NATO as warmongers. I missed the '68 Democratic convention; I'm not going to miss this one. I am going to be there in solidarity to denounce the NATO warmongers.
