Stop FBI Raids and Repression
part of National Day of Action

Tuesday, January 25
12:00 - 1: 00 PM

in front of the JFK Federal Building
at Government Center in Downtown Boston

On January 25, nine antiwar activists are due to appear before a Grand Jury in Chicago. They are among a total of 23 activists around the country who have had their homes raided by the FBI and have been served Grand Jury subpoenas. The majority may face time in jail for their decision not to talk to US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald’s Grand Jury.

Take a stand for freedom of speech and the right to organize by joining this National Day of Action! Protest the use of FBI raids and a Grand Jury to repress anti-war and solidarity activists!

This rally is sponsored by: ACLU of Massachusetts, Boston Coalition for Palestinian Rights, Boston United National Antiwar Committee, Boston Stop the Wars Coalition, International Action Center, National Lawyers Guild, Massachusetts Chapter, Stop the Wars Coalition, Code Pink Boston, WILPF Boston, United for Justice with Peace.

For more information on the FBI raids: www.stopfbi.net

Chuck Turner’s (another victim of FBI repression) sentencing is taking place at the Moakley Courthouse in near South Station at 2:30 PM. Those who would like will be able to attend both events.

The court house is by Northern Ave. Just across the bridge from Downtown.

UPDATE: 800 anti-war and international solidarity activists participated in four regional conferences, in Chicago, IL; Oakland, CA; Chapel Hill, NC and New York City to stop U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald’s Grand Jury repression.

Still, in the last few weeks, the FBI has continued to call and harass anti-war organizers, repressing free speech and the right to organize. However, all of their intimidation tactics are bringing a movement closer together to stop war and demand peace.

We demand:
-- Call Off the Grand Jury Witch-hunt Against International Solidarity Activists!
-- Support Free Speech!
-- Support the Right to Organize!
-- Stop FBI Repression!
-- International Solidarity Is Not a Crime!
-- Stop the Criminalization of Arab and Muslim Communities!

Background: Fitzgerald ordered FBI raids on anti-war and solidarity activists' homes and subpoenaed fourteen activists in Chicago, Minneapolis, and Michigan on September 24, 2010. All 14 refused to speak before the Grand Jury in October. Then, 9 more Palestine solidarity activists, most Arab-Americans, were subpoenaed to appear at the Grand Jury on January 25, 2011, launching renewed protests. There are now 23 who assert their right to not participate in Fitzgerald’s witch-hunt.

The Grand Jury is a secret and closed inquisition, with no judge, and no press. The U.S. Attorney controls the entire proceedings and hand picks the jurors, and the solidarity activists are not allowed a lawyer. Even the date when the Grand Jury ends is a secret.

So please make these calls to those in charge of the repression aimed against anti-war leaders and the growing Palestine solidarity movement.
