Project SALAM

Events are planned in Albany this evening to commemorate the 12th anniversary of the arrests of Yassin Aref and Mohammed Hossain, who were convicted of terrorism following an FBI sting. 

Yassin Aref, the Albany imam sent to federal prison after being convicted of material support for terrorism, is part of a case heard in court this week involving inmates challenging confinement in special prison units.

Activists from Albany traveled to Camden, New Jersey, Wednesday in a show of solidarity with the Duka brothers—three of the so-called “Fort Dix Five” involved in an FBI entrapment case.
