Nationwide Protests of FBI Repression of Anti-War & Solidarity Activists Tuesday Jan. 25, 2011



From The Committee To Stop FBI Repression:

Show your solidarity with the nine newly subpoenaed activists who are being
called before a grand jury in Chicago on January 25.

We are calling for protests on Jan. 25 across the country and around
the world to show our solidarity.
Hundreds of organizations and
thousands of people will be protesting at Federal Buildings, FBI offices, and
other appropriate places.

Background Info:

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.

In response we are calling for protests on Jan. 25 across the country
and around the world to show our solidarity.
Hundreds of organizations
and thousands of people will be protesting at Federal Buildings, FBI offices,
and other appropriate places, showing solidarity with the nine newly subpoenaed
activists, and with all the activists whose homes were raided by the FBI.

Fitzgerald’s expanding web of repression already includes the fourteen
subpoenaed when the FBI stormed into homes on September 24th, carting away
phones, computers, notebooks, diaries, and children’s artwork. In October, all
fourteen activists from Chicago, Minneapolis, and Michigan each decided to not
participate in the secret proceedings of Fitzgerald’s Grand Jury. Each signed a
letter invoking their Fifth Amendment rights. However, three women from
Minneapolis—Tracy Molm, Anh Pham, and Sarah Martin—are facing re-activated
subpoenas. They are standing strong and we are asking you to stand with them –
and with the newly subpoenaed nine activists – by protesting Patrick Fitzgerald
and his use of the Grand Jury and FBI to repress anti-war and international
solidarity activists.

Defend free speech! Defend the right to organize! Opposing war
and occupation is not a crime!

  • Tell Patrick Fitzgerald to call off the Grand Jury!
  • Stop FBI raids and repression!

Take Action!

Please organize a local protest or picket in your city or on your campus on
Tuesday Jan. 25 and e-mail us at
