Activists are planning demonstrations today and tomorrow against recent FBI raids on the homes of anti-war activists in Minneapolis and Chicago. They held what they called an “emergency meeting” yesterday in Chicago. The FBI searched eight addresses in the two cities on Friday.
Warrants suggest agents were looking for links to terrorist groups in Colombia and the Middle East. Activitists believe the raids were conducted to quiet anti-war sentiment.
In the Twin Cities, a protest is planned at 4:30pm today outside the FBI office in downtown Minneapolis.
