Chicago, IL -The FBI has informed a lawyer from
the National Lawyers Guild (NLG) that at least
three new subpoenas to appear before a Grand Jury
have been delivered in the Chicago area.
Attorney Jim Fennerty confirmed that FBI agent
Robert Parker informed him just before 1:00 pm
that the subpoenas were being delivered at that moment.
This is a continuation of the assault on the
anti-war movement that began on September 24th.
This case began with 14 subpoenas delivered to
anti-war, labor and solidarity activists in
coordinated raids that swept the Midwest, involving scores of federal agents.
The December 3 subpoenas mean that three
additional people are being called to appear in front of the Grand Jury.
The FBI is continuing their campaign to
intimidate the movement, stated Joe Iosbaker of
the national Committee to Stop FBI Repression.
Iosbaker was one of those raided and subpoenaed in September.
Fennerty is one of the lead NLG attorneys from
the legal team for the activists. According to
Fennerty, The new subpoenas are summoning people
for grand jury dates. At least one of the three
has been told to appear before the grand jury
Tuesday, January 25th, in the Dirksen Federal Building in Chicago.
Three of the original 14 are awaiting new grand
jury court dates as well. Iosbaker explained, If
the three women who have been called back Sara
Martin, Tracy Molm and Anh Pham - refuse to take
part in the fishing expedition carried on by the
U.S. Attorney, they can expect to be cited for
contempt and jailed for the life of the grand jury.
The Committee to Stop FBI Repression urges
supporters to contact U.S. Attorney Patrick
Fitzgerald and condemn the use of the grand jury
to repress the anti-war and solidarity movements.
Call Patrick J. Fitzgerald at 312-353-5300
