The homes of several leaders of the Twin Cities
antiwar movement were raided Friday by the FBI in
what an agency spokesman described as an
investigation into activities concerning the material support of terrorism.
Search warrants were executed on six addresses in
Minneapolis and at two in Chicago, said FBI spokesman Steve Warfield.
Among the homes raided were the apartments of
Jessica Sundin, who was a principal leader of the
mass march of 10,000 on the opening day of the
Republican National Convention two years ago, and
Mick Kelly, who was prominent in that protest and
among those who announced plans to march on the
Democratic National Convention in Minneapolis, if
the city is selected to host it in 2012.
Ted Dooley, an attorney, said he had reviewed the
search warrant issued in the raid on Kellys
apartment. Its a probe into the political
beliefs of American citizens and to any
organization anywhere that opposes the American imperial design, he said.
Steve Warfield, an FBI agent, declined to respond
to Dooleys comment. He said in a statement
Friday, We are doing six federal search warrants
in Minneapolis that are related to an ongoing
Joint Terrorism Task Force investigation into
activities concerning the material support of
terrorism. We are doing two search warrants in Chicago as well.
He said the raids were conducted at about 7 a.m.,
but he declined to say who or what addresses were being raided.
Mick Kelly, who lives on the 1800 block of
Riverside Av. in Minneapolis, said in a telephone
interview that the FBI kicked down his door,
handed him a search warrant and began inspecting
his files. He said eight FBI agents were involved in the raid.
