Today, citizens across the country are joining together to protest the ongoing FBI raids and subpoenas of Palestinian and Colombian solidarity activists. Nine of the 23 targeted thus far have been called to testify today in front of a grand jury in Chicago, IL.
Dating back to September, peace activists nation-wide have been subjected to home raids and FBI questioning as part of an ongoing investigation. Though no charges have been made, those called to testify Tuesday are being questioned for possibly providing material support to groups identified by the US government as terrorist organizations. In Summer 2010, to the objection of numerous humanitarian groups, the Supreme Court ruled that such support could include providing information on how to conduct peaceful protests and advocating against violence.
