Laredo, TX—Alec Martinez refused to be questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
We are came together in response to the FBI raids on seven homes and an anti-war office on Friday, September 24, 2010. The FBI also handed subpoenas to testify before a federal grand jury to fourteen activists in Illinois, Minnesota, and Michigan. These activists are involved in many groups, including the Twin Cities Anti-War Committee, the Palestine Solidarity Group, the Colombia Action Network, Students for a Democratic Society, and the Freedom Road Socialist Organization. These activists and many others came together to organize the 2008 anti-war marches during the Republican National Convention in St. Paul. In December, 2010, 9 Palestine solidarity activists in Chicago were also subpoenaed.
Across the country organizations and individuals stood together to protest the United States government’s attempt to silence and criminalize anti-war and international solidarity activists.
Raids and subpoenas are an attack on anti-war and other progressive movements. It is an attack on our freedom to speak, our freedom to assemble with like-minded people, and our freedom to tell the government that their actions and policies are wrong.
We fought every case and resisted every grand jury subpoena and today we are on the streets continuing our resistance to police terror and demanding Justice for George Floyd, all victims and survivors of police crimes and in a myriad of movements. We are still there because we resisted and organized others to support that resistance.
