WE NEED YOUR HELP. Join us at 9:00 AM on January 25 for a protest in Raleigh to coincide with National Day of Action against FBI Repression

On September 24th, 2010, FBI Agents conducted coordinated raids on the homes of anti-war, labor, and international solidarity activists in Minneapolis and Chicago. Fourteen activists were served with subpoenas that demanded they appear before a grand jury in Chicago.  All fourteen refused to participate in the FBI's fishing expedition. In December 2010, under the direction of U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, the FBI delivered nine new subpoenas in Chicago to anti-war and Palestine solidarity activists. Patrick Fitzgerald’s office is ordering the nine to appear at a Grand Jury in Chicago on January 25.
On January 25, as anti-war activists who were resubpoenaed make their first appearance before the Grand Jury, demonstrations will be organized across the country to show solidarity with them, with all the activists whose homes were raided by the FBI, and to demand an end to FBI and Grand Jury repression of anti-war activists. 
We'll be gathering in Raleigh at 9:00 AM for a press conference and rally at the Federal Building. Putting pressure on politicians and the FBI is essential to keeping these and other activists out of jail for activities--dissenting speech, travel and education--that are protected by the constitution and necessary to the democratic process. While initial media coverage of this issue was strong, continuing pressure requires action. WE NEED YOUR VOICES AND YOUR BODIES. Join us in taking the fight against the FBI's witch-hunt to the streets of Raleigh, in solidarity with those targeted and those fighting government repression in the United States and abroad.
