Target of FBI Raids, Jess Sundin, Will Speak in Chapel Hill on Nov. 30

Posted by raleighfist on November 29, 2010

Event is part of a national week of actions in solidarity with those being targeted by the FBI

Minneapolis antiwar activist Jess Sundin, one of the people targeted by the Sept. 24 FBI raids, will be speaking in Chapel Hill on Tuesday, November 30, at 7pm  about the raids and the growing movement to defend those being attacked by the FBI.

On September 24, the FBI raided the homes of 14 well-known anti-war and human rights activists in Chicago and Minneapolis. They also raided the office of the Minnesota Anti-War Committee. According to the FBI, the goal of the raids was to investigate alleged “material support for terrorism”. These activists have done nothing wrong, yet face secretive Grand Jury trials, jail time and fines. Their freedom is at stake, along with everyone’s freedom to speak our minds and to organize against war and occupation.

Come learn about the past and current history of FBI attacks on social movements in the US, and to understand your rights and what you can do to stand in solidarity with those being targeted! The event is FREE. Donations will be collected for the Minneapolis and Chicago’s activists’ legal defense fund.
