Solidarity Statement from the Long Beach Area Peace Network

The Long Beach Area Peace Network denounces the repressive actions taken by the FBI against peace and solidarity activists in Chicago and Minneapolis, and across the nation. We demand all charges be dropped against the 23 activists who have been issued subpoenas to appear before a grand jury in Chicago. We further demand all confiscated materials be returned to them and that the FBI issue a public apology to the activists who have been unjustly accused, harrassed, and raided. We stand in solidarity with all activists currently being persecuted and will continue our efforts on their behalf until justice is won for all concerned.
