Support The Priest
This week in Washington, D.C., the navy began it's court martial of Roger Priest, editor of “OM”, a GI paper that has been relentless in it's attacks on this system that puts us all down. The navy, because of an article in “OM” that Mendel Rivers thought to be insulting, is prosecuting Roger on several charges, ranging from publishing statements “advising and urging insubordination, disloyalty, and refusal of duty by members of the military and naval forces of the United States”, and three specifications that it contained, “statements disloyal to the United States”. Mendel Rivers is the Chairman of the House Armed Services SubCommittee, which handles national defense policy and defense contracts.
The maximum punishment for the eight charges that Roger faces is 39 years in prison.
Roger originally faced many additional charges, like saying things against a Congressman, (Rivers), and in fact, it was Rivers, in a series of letters to the Secretary of the navy, who sparked the entire invest igation by asking if there wasn't some way Roger Preist could be brought to trial. This investigation at one time, accord- ing to the navy, necessitated 25 intelligence agents following Roger around the clock, searching thru his garbage, tappig his phone. The last nine months have been taken up with pre trial motions of one sort or another, but they have afforded Roger the time to gain wide spread support in his, and our, struggle against these people in this country, these very few people, who would have us as their pawns in their world wide chess game against the people of the world who desire to be free of US domination.
SUPPORT THE PRIEST.
The real criminal is not Roger Priest, the real criminals are at large, they are behind their desks at the Pentagon, the White House, Standard Oil, IBM, United Fruit Company, General Dynamics, Boeing, General Electric, General Motors, Bank of America, Union Carbide, Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, Ford, Dow Chemical, Honeywell, Westinghouse, and the list goes on and on and on. This trial, like other court martials is a farce, evidence will be heard against truth, so no matter what the pigs in the navy do to Roger, the truth will still be heard, and many GI's will be listening.
