Civil Liberties and the FBI

Civil Liberties and the FBI:
How Local Activists and Groups Can Respond
Monday, March 21
7:00 to 9:00 pm
Time and Space Limited
434 Columbia St, Hudson, NY 12534
Last September, the FBI raided homes and antiwar offices in Illinois, Minnesota, Michigan and North Carolina.  Fourteen activists were handed subpoenas to testify before a federal grand jury.  Among those targeted were members of the Twin Cities Anti-War Committee, the Palestine Solidarity Group, and the Colombia Action Network. Who is the next target?
A panel of four attorneys (Steve Downs, Valeria Gheorghiu, Kathy Manley and Michael Sussman) will speak about our rights as individuals and discuss ways that local peace and justice groups engaged in non-violent activism can prepare for and respond to federal interference, raids and subpoenas.  A question and answer session will follow the panel discussion.
