Rally to Oppose FBI and Grand Jury Political Attacks
Sun Jun 19 2011
Protest at Oakland Federal Building Shows Support for Carlos Montes and David House
Dozens of Bay Area activists rallied on June 16th in front of the Federal Building in downtown Oakland to “resist government attacks against activists”. Activists picketed against what they called a “bogus witch hunt of intimidation and harassment” by the FBI. Protesters claimed the FBI began targeting social justice, international solidarity, and anti-war activists in September 2010, by raiding the homes of seven Chicago and Minneapolis activists and the offices of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Anti-War Committee. The FBI issued subpoenas to a total of 14 activists to appear before a Grand Jury.

On May 17, 2011 the SWAT Team of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department and members of the FBI raided the home of Carlos Montes, a long time Chicano activist and active member of the Committee to Stop FBI Repression. Carlos was scheduled to appear in court on June 16th. Courage to Resist activists joined the rally to also support Bradley Manning Support Network organizer David House who refused to answer questions from a Grand Jury in Virginia seeking information about WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, and Bradley Manning on June 15th.
