Thu Jan 27 2011 (Updated 01/29/11) Rallies Held in Across the U.S. in Response to FBI Raids in September 2010
San Francisco Fights Grand Jury Repression On January 25th, rallies were held in San Jose, San Francisco, and other cities across the U.S. in response to the FBI raids on seven homes and an anti-war office on September 24, 2010. The FBI also has served subpoenas to testify before a federal grand jury to fourteen activists in Illinois, Minnesota, and Michigan. These activists are involved in many groups, including the Twin Cities Anti-War Committee, the Palestine Solidarity Group, the Colombia Action Network, Students for a Democratic Society, and the Freedom Road Socialist Organization. These activists and many others came together to organize the 2008 anti-war marches during the Republican National Convention in St. Paul.

Across the country organizations and individuals are standing together to protest the United States government’s attempt to silence and criminalize anti-war and international solidarity activists, who see the raids and subpoenas as an attack on anti-war and other progressive movements. Regional organizing conferences have been planned to push back against government repression, including in San Francisco on February 12, 2011.

Demands include: Stop the repression of anti-war and international solidarity activists; Immediately return all confiscated materials — computers, cell phones, papers, documents, etc; and End the grand jury proceedings against anti-war activists.
