Raids Peace Activist’s Homes, Issues Subpoenas 
For Grand 


FBI agents raided six homes in Minneapolis and 
two in Chicago today, apparently looking for 
links to terrorist activity. The Minneapolis 
raids targeted peace activists who were active in 
protesting the 2008 Republican National 
Convention (RNC) in St. Paul ­ among them Jessica 
Sundin and Mick Kelly, organizers of the massive 
march on the first day of the RNC. Travel and 
phone records were reportedly taken from their homes.

At a home on Park Avenue in Minneapolis, FBI 
agents arrived early this morning with a warrant. 
The person who answered the door says that the 
FBI pushed past her and began searching every 
room of the home, from attic to basement, looking 
at CDs, DVDs, books, photos and papers. Before 
leaving, the FBI issued subpoenas for the peace 
activists to appear before a Grand Jury in Chicago on Oct. 12.

Above the Hard Times Cafe in Minneapolis’ 
Cedar-Riverside neighborhood, the FBI allegedly 
kicked in doors and entered Mick Kelly’s 
second-floor apartment this morning with guns 
drawn. Hours later, as many as half a dozen 
agents began carrying boxes down to their 
vehicles: a grey Chevy Impala on the street and 
two black SUVs parked behind the cafe.

The UpTake had cameras at the raid locations on 
Park Avenue and Cedar-Riverside and will be 
posting photos, videos and interviews from the 
scene soon. Members of the peace community are 
gathering at Walker Church today at 5:30pm to 
give advice and comfort to those who had their homes raided.
