Student Subpoena Fitzgerald

Friday, January 14, 2011 - 9:00am - 12:00pm

Join us at the Federal Plaza on January 14th to serve a subpoena to Attorney General Patrick Fitzgerald for his violations of our civil liberties. Fitzgerald is heading the current political witch hunt against antiwar activists, international solidarity activists, and the Arab and Muslim community. So far, over 23 people have been targeted, including members of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS).
These raids and subpoenas are an attack on the movements that speak out against war, occupation, and injustice.
