Conversations on the Chicago/Minneapolis Grand Jury Resistance

Mick Kelly- Committee to Stop FBI Repression

Summary

On Friday September 24th 2010 the FBI raided seven homes and an anti­war office.  They also served subpoenas to activists to testify before a federal grand jury that involved many groups, including the Twin Cities Anti­War Committee, the Palestine Solidarity Group, the Colombia Action Network, Students for a Democratic Society, and the Freedom Road Socialist Organization. They were also targeted for organizing the 2008 anti­war marches during the Republican National Convention in St. Paul. The raids and subpoenas are an attack on people who oppose war, capitalism and imperialism. Across the country organizations and individuals are standing together to protest the targeting of the activists.  This presentation will discuss how activists have organized resistance to political repression and grand juries.  Mick Kelly, a representative from Committee to Stop FBI Repression, will talk about the effectiveness of organizing against political repression. ”
