**Stop the repression against anti-war and international solidarity activists.
**Immediately return all confiscated materials: computers, cell phones, papers, documents, etc.
**End the grand jury proceedings against anti-war activists.
The raids come days after revelations of FBI surveillance of anti-RNC activists in Iowa in 2008 and expansive spying operations targeting environmental and anti-war activists -- including the Duluth Catholic Worker -- during the Bush years.
The raids are part of a year-long investigation of the anti-war movement. At least 13 organizers in Minneapolis, Chicago and elsewhere have been subpoenaed to appear before a federal grand jury. The FBI appears to be targeting the Midwest anti-war movement -- not for any illegal action, but because of the political beliefs and associations of some of its organizers.
No activity up north... so don't be paranoid. But as always, know your rights.
