The War on Dissent in Minnesota
Thursday, 12/16 @ 7pm @ Just Food Coop event room, 516 Water Street, Northfield, MN
On September 24th, the FBI raided homes in Chicago and Minneapolis of well-known anti-war and international solidarity activists and the office of the Twin Cities based Anti-War Committee. The FBI also subpoenaed 14 activists across the Midwest, 9 of whom are members of the Minnesota peace movement, to testify at a secret grand jury. According to the FBI, the goal of the raids was to find material support for terrorism. Come hear how this investigation, harassment, intimidation, and the threat of jail time is an attempt to silence those who support resistance to oppression in the Middle East and Latin America.
Meredith Aby, a member of the Anti-War Committee whose home was raided and has been subpoenaed, will be speaking about her case at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 16th in the Event Room at the Just Food Co-op, 516 S. Water Street in Northfield, Minnesota.
