Emergency Actions to Support Anti-War and International Solidarity Activists

Stop FBI Raids and Harassment

We denounce the Federal Bureau of Investigation harassment of anti-war and solidarity activists.  The FBI raided seven houses and an office in Chicago and Minneapolis on Friday, September 24, 2010.  The FBI handed subpoenas to testify before a federal grand jury to eleven activists in Illinois, Minnesota, and Michigan. The FBI also attempted to intimidate activists in California and North Carolina.

This suppression of civil rights is aimed at those who dedicate their time and energy to supporting the struggles of the Palestinian and Colombian peoples against U.S. funded occupation and war.   The FBI has indicated that the grand jury is investigating the activists for possible material support of terrorism charges.

The activists involved have done nothing wrong and are refusing to be pulled into conversations with the FBI about their political views or organizing against war and occupation.  The activists are involved with many groups, including:  the Twin Cities Anti-War Committee, the Palestine Solidarity Group, the Colombia Action Network, Students for a Democratic Society, and Freedom Road Socialist Organization. These activists came together with many others to organize the 2008 anti-war marches on the Republican National Convention in St. Paul.

We ask people of conscience to join us in fighting this political repression, as we continue working to build the movements against US war and occupation.

Take Action:

Call the U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder at 202-353-1555 or write an email to:  AskDOJ@usdoj.gov.

Demand:

**Stop the repression against anti-war and international solidarity activists.

**Immediately return all confiscated materials: computers, cell phones, papers, documents, etc.

**End the grand jury proceedings against anti-war activists.

    All this is happening because the US Gov’t has decided to blame Pres.Ahmadinejad’s speech at the UN for the charges against them regarding 9/11 and the Zionist involvement. We all know fullwell that these charges have existed since day one of 9/11 and what is more at high levels in many governments around the world and many scientists in the United States and many aviators in the United States also agreed with the allegations immediately after the attacks.
    For the American Government to now use Pres. Ahmadinejad’s address to the United Nations as a catalyst for the war they are waging on the Anti-war movement is nothing more than a move of moral COWARDICE by the fbi. They should hang their heads in shame for their behaviour not only in this instance by for their behaviour in Palestine, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Columbia and more recently at the source of the River Indus.

    ‘Zionist lawyers are now using grand juries to make anti-Zionism illegal in the United States. They are clever enough to obscure the issue by including Colombia in the mix, but it is clear that the real target is groups committed to Palestinian rights. The searches are harassment and intimidation in and of themselves, and will no doubt be used to gather information to issue indictments.’
