National Day of Action against FBI subpoenas on Tuesday, January 25, 2011‏

[As the US government faces deepening global opposition to its wars of aggression and neo-colonial occupations, it aims its domestic fire at the activists who organize anti-imperialist solidarity with the people’s liberation movements around the world.  Seeking to crush this solidarity, the only way to defeat such repression is to defend those attacked, and intensify the commitment and work for broader, active solidarity.  We urge all to join the actions against FBI subpoenas on January 25!–Frontlines ed.]

Join the National Day of Action on Tuesday, January 25, 2011

In December 2010, under the direction of U.S. Attorney Patrick
Fitzgerald, the FBI delivered 9 new subpoenas in Chicago to anti-war
and Palestine solidarity activists - bringing the total number of
subpoenaed activists to 23. Patrick Fitzgerald’s office is ordering
the 9 to appear at a Grand Jury in Chicago on January 25.

In response, we are calling for protests 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 9
newly subpoenaed activists and with all the activists whose homes were
raided by the FBI.

Fitzgerald’s expanding web of repression already includes the 14
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 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!

Please organize a local protest or picket in your city or on your
campus and e-mail us at stopfbi@gmail.com to let us know what you have
planned.

In Struggle,
--Tom Burke
