Grand Juries – What are they? How can we resist them?

In the last week of September, 14 anti-war and international solidarity activists were hit with Grand Jury subpoena’s. These are the most recent but certainly not the only grand jury subpoenas served on activists from different movements around the country.  In this
context it is critical that radicals, activists, and supporters of those targeted understand the use of this shadowy institution– including the “rights” they grant us and the rights we claim for ourselves.

Carrie Feldman, a local activist and former member of the Coldsnap Legal Collective, will be speaking about what a grand jury is, how they have been used to target radical movements, and her experience resisting a federal grand jury investigation into the animal liberation movement.

In addition, one of the local antiwar activists targeted by the latest round of subpoenas will speak on the current situation in that case.
