Stop FBI Repression

A two-year secret federal investigation of the U.S. anti-war movement has been conducted by the Obama administration, apparently with a federal grand jury in Chicago hearing evidence from Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald, looking into “possible links between U.S. anti-war groups and foreign terrorist organizations,” according to the Chicago Tribune.  Fitzgerald issued subpoenas beginning in September 2010, delivered via FBI raids to their homes, for activists to appear before the grand jury.  With all the records sealed by court order, it is impossible to know about the scope and intent of the probe.  23 anti-war activists have now been targeted by the FBI, many through September raids that confiscated a wide range of personal material.  Activists who have been summoned to testify before grand juries have righteously refused.

We cannot allow these repressive attacks to deter us from righteously opposing and resisting the crimes of our government. We must have courage.  The movement as a whole must unite in support of targeted activists and refuse to cooperate with these repressive police operations.
