On September 24, 2010, the FBI raided homes in Minneapolis and Chicago, and the office of the Twin Cities Anti War Committee. To date, a total of 23 activists have received summons to appear before a Grand Jury run by U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald. Many of those targeted are activists who stand in solidarity with the Palestinian and Colombian people. Their ranks include anti-war, trade union and community leaders.

Fitzgerald wants to turn the clock back to the 1950s and play the role of Joe McCarthy - his aim is to put activists in prison for their political beliefs. This is an attack on everyone who is working for peace, justice and equality. We cannot allow the government to get away with this.

Join us for the regional organizing conferences (San Francisco: Feb. 12, 2011) to push back against the government repression that has been unleashed on anti-war and international solidarity activists.

You are always there, in solidarity, to document the protests of the people's fight against the wrongs of our government, and we appreciate your work very much! I was hoping with the last administration gone, we'd be spending less time in the streets, but in a lot of ways, this regime is worst than the last! More work for all of us, but it's always nice to see you, and I just wanted to say thanks for all you do.

Of course I'm against FBI repression, but I was shocked to see the sign in the top picture: "FBI, go find some real criminals." What 'real criminals' could the FBI ever pursue? Poor people who reach out to grab the wealth of banks and the rich? Urban kids driven to deal drugs? 'Eco-terrorists'? 'Immigrant smuggling rings'? The FBI can only have one purpose- repression - and opposing one facet of that repression should never mean even implicitly supporting other facets. Opposing repression means seeking the destruction of the whole repressive apparatus.
