New York protest says ‘We are all Marzieh’

Activists from New York and New Jersey met at Grand Central Station in Manhattan Jan. 25, just three days after Marzieh Hashemi, an African-American journalist working for PressTV, was released from federal detention. Members of the Tri-State Iranian Community, International Action Center, People’s Power Assembly, Workers World Party and even passersby joined together to demand an end to harassment of anti-racist, anti-imperialist journalists. They also demanded an immediate end to the Material Witness Law, an unconstitutional measure used to hold people, especially Muslims like Hashemi, indefinitely without charges.  Her release was a victory for the people’s movement worldwide.
