On Tuesday Sept 28th at 5pm, several dozen protesters gathered near 7th St and Mission St in San Francisco to protest FBI raids against anti-war activists in several US cities

"On Friday, September 24, FBI agents raided houses across the midwest, including the north-side house of Chicago activists Joe Iosbaker and Stephanie Weiner, as well as that of Hatem Abudayyeh of the Arab-American Action Network. The FBI ostensibly investigated alleged financial ties with unnamed international terrorists; the FBI has issued subpoenas to force testimony before a grand jury to about a dozen activists across the midwest.

Antiwar activists, mindful of the COINTELPRO intimidation tactics that the FBI has implemented in the past against radical activists, view the raids as little more than crass intimidation. Within a day, activists organized a solidarity vigil, a press conference to raise public opinion of the matter, and after an impromptu meeting have quickly organized a rally at FBI offices in Chicago, in concert with similar rallies in 18 other cities.
