Tarek Mehanna is a young Muslim leader from the Boston area who was recently targeted and arrested by the FBI after he refused to become an informant against his own community. Tarek is currently being illegally held in 23-hour solitary confinement in Pymouth, MA. His arrest is part of an ongoing campaign of FBI repression against Arab and Muslim communities.
Silence Broken is a project of the Tarek Mehanna Support Committee and Movement in Motion. This two part compilation cd will bring about awareness of Tarek's case, and his innocence, to the public. This educational fundraising project consists of more than 45 artists and activists who have donated their music to raise awareness about FBI repression and related struggles against racism and oppression. The CD includes material recorded specifically in support of Tarek, and features a musically diverse array of movement artists.
Tarek appreciates any person who stands up for justice not only for his case but for any just cause. Please join in the campaign to free Tarek. We thank those who continue to support Tarek and we pray that Allah (swt) guides them and rewards them in this life and the hereafter.
