U.N. Human Rights Award winner Ramsey Clark with Chuck Turner in front of JFK Federal Building in Boston. Clark hailed Turner's 4 decades of dedicated commitment and action for civil and human rights, demanded charges against him and other elected officials and leaders from oppressed communities around the country be dropped, and called for investigation of those who brought the politically motivated prosecutions.

Chuck Turner Petition

End the Bush Administration's Frame Ups Designed to Politically Assassinate Boston City Councilor Chuck Turner and Other Progressive Elected Leaders
We urge you to demand that President Obama and Attorney General Holder (with copies to the Boston Globe, The Boston Herald, the New York Times, Congressional Black Caucus, Congressional leaders, the Massachusetts congressional delegation, Gov. Deval Patrick, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, NAACP, and ACLU):

  1. Immediately drop the fraudulent charges against Boston City Councilor Chuck Turner, launch investigations of all pending indictments in order to dismiss those that are politically and/or racially motivated, and review all convictions of elected officials during the Bush administration in order to determine whether new trials need to be initiated.

  2. Immediately initiate legal actions against all US Attorneys who have set up these politically and/or racially motivated, bogus prosecutions, beginning with US Attorney Michael Sullivan who engineered Councilor Turner's frame up.

  3. Immediately initiate legislation to end the collusion between prosecutors and media that destroys any opportunity for a fair trial by distributing governmental allegations as evidence before any trial has taken place.

Please tell President Obama, Attorney General Holder, Congressional leaders, U.N. Secretary General Ban and the media that immediate action is needed to end not only the Bush administration abuses of justice but also the historical pattern of the Justice Department being used to perpetrate racially and politically motivated indictments of political officials, particularly African-Americans.

I demand the fraudulent charges against Boston City Councilor Chuck Turner be dropped immediately. Justice clearly demands that you stop the ongoing political assassinations of progressive political officials by reviewing all pending Bush administration indictments and dismiss those that are politically and/or racially motivated.

I further demand that all Bush era convictions of elected officials be reviewed to determine whether new trials need to be held; that legal actions be instituted against those US Attorneys guilty of bringing fraudulent indictments to their grand juries; and that legislation immediately be filed to stop the immoral practice of distributing "evidence" before a trial has taken place.

At a time of massive budget cutbacks and economic crisis, why are resources that are needed for heat, light, social services and human needs being spent on attempted sting and entrapment activities directed against the strongest and most courageous political leaders and representatives of the African American community and other communities. An independent investigation of this right wing abuse of law enforcement to deny the people of this country the right to be represented by those that they choose is needed immediately.
