Join the protest march & rally in San Jose: Tuesday, Jan. 25, 4 - 6pm at King Library, 4th & San Fernando
In December 2010, under the direction of U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, the FBI delivered 9 new subpoenas in Chicago to anti-war and Palestine solidarity activists - bringing the total number of subpoenaed activists to 23. Patrick Fitzgerald's office is ordering the 9 to appear at a Grand Jury in Chicago on January 25.
In response, protests will be held across the country and around the world to show our solidarity. Hundreds of organizations and thousands of people will be protesting at Federal Buildings, FBI offices, and other appropriate places, showing solidarity with the 9 newly subpoenaed activists and with all the activists whose homes were raided by the FBI.Read more...

Initiated by Veterans for Peace, the Drones Quilt Project is a work of collective art designed to raise awareness and build opposition to the U.S. drone attacks that are killing thousands of people in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, and other countries. Each panel on a quilt was created by an individual in the U.S. who includes their name and the name of a civilian victim, thus memorializing the life of someone killed by the illegal and immoral U.S. drone program.
