On Thursday, December 14th, after nine days of deliberation and intense pressure from the judge to come to a verdict, the jury found Lyglenson Lemorin not guilty and refused to convict the other 6 defendants, forcing a mistrial.

    The case of the Liberty City Seven began when seven young Africans — Narseal Batiste, Patrick Abraham, Rotschild Augustine, Burson Augustine, Stanley Grant Phanor, Naudimar Herrera and Lyglenson Lemorin — were kidnapped and imprisoned by FBI agents in June 2006. The government called them terrorists and charged them with sedition (conspiracy to overthrow the government).

    In reality, the whole case was manufactured. The FBI sent two agent provocateurs into their midst to create a situation that would give reason to arrest them, much like the FBI did in the 1960s to Black Power organizations.

    In this case, the purpose was to be able to give terrorism a black face. Resistance to parasitic U.S. and European imperialism is growing around the world. The U.S. government recognized that the African working class is the most consistently revolutionary sector within U.S. borders and needed to turn the so-called “war on terror” against the African community.

    So the FBI agents offered the LC7 $50,000 and gave them at least $4,500 over time to lure them into the government trap. It even bought the men boots and a camera.

    While organizing, I hope they straighten up thaty community. Liberty City is a dangerous environment - nevertheless I blame the lazy folks around there who choose to do nothing about it.
