South Bay Says: Stop the FBI Raids
Last September the FBI questioned Skyline Community College veteran professor of Economics, Masao Suzuki. On the same day that Suzuki was questioned by the FBI, seven anti-war activists' homes were served subpoenas to appear at a Grand Jury in Chicago, Illinois. On February 25th South Bay peace and justice advocates marched in response to FBI raids.
Masao Suzuki spoke at the rally and march held in downtown San Jose on February 25th.
From Arab Organizing:
The FBI questioned ten-year Skyline Community College veteran professor of Economics, Masao Suzuki Sept. 24, at 7 a.m. Suzuki has been active as a self-proclaimed antiwar activist and is part of several organizations in San Jose, where he lives. He has also recently published an article in the November issue of The Advocate, a publication by the American Federation of Teachers Local 1493, of which he is Executive Committee Co-Representative, describing the events.
"Basically a young man asked my name, and I said yes that was me, and he said he was from the FBI and asked if he could ask me a few questions, and I exercised my right to not answer his questions," said Suzuki when explaining the events of the morning of Sept. 24. "He said he could come back later, and I said no, and he said he could come to my work and ask me a few questions, and I said no I didn't want to talk to him, and he said that if I didn't want to answer his questions he'd ask my neighbors and co-workers instead, and I took that as a threat."
"He did actually ask my neighbor, about meetings at my house," added Suzuki.
On the same day that Suzuki was questioned by the FBI, seven anti-war activists' homes were served subpoenas to appear at a Grand Jury Oct. 5 in Chicago, Illinois, according to Suzuki's article in The Advocate.
