IWW Chicago GMB Statement of Solidarity with Peace Activists Raided by the FBI

At the October meeting of the Chicago General Membership Branch of the Industrial Workers of the World, the members voted unanimously to draft a Letter of Solidarity with the Peace Activists raided by the FBI on September 24th, 2010.  We wish to show our support specifically for the 3 Chicago activists and one from Minneapolis, as well as all other activists who were raided by the FBI:

  • Stephanie Weiner
  • Joe Iosbaker
  • Hatem Abudayyeh
  • Mick Kelly

The Membership of the Chicago IWW GMB call on the U.S. Department of Justice to drop the Grand Jury proceedings against the Peace Activists,  and for the FBI to cease spying on and raiding Labor and Peace activists, and to return all materials seized in the recent raids to the U.S. Citizens who were raided.

In Peace and Solidarity,
The members of the IWW Chicago GMB
