Chicago Committee to Defend the Bill of Rights: Solidarity regarding FBI raids subpoenas

At our board meeting 22 March 2011 the Chicago Committee to Defend the Bill of Rights (www.ccdbr.org) voted unanimously to join the Pledge of Resistance and to convey our full solidarity with the targets of raids and subpoenas that make a mockery of the Bill of Rights by reviving a new and ugly form of guilt by association.  We are especially concerned about the ominous implications of fishing expeditions and prosecutions for "material support of terrorism," particularly in light of the shocking Supreme Court decision endorsing criminal prosecution for exercise of First Amendment rights.
