FBI Delivers New Subpoenas to More Anti-War, Solidarity Activists

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.
