Grab Your Cameras: Stop FBI Repression

Protests and rallies can offer great opportunities for photojournalism, so for all you photographers in the Minneapolis area there will be a demonstration tomorrow to protest the FBI’s recent raids that targeted political activists in Illinois and Minnesota. And if you are unaware of these controversial raids (which included five homes and one office in Minneapolis), check out Answer Coalition’s coverage of the story.

From Answer Coalition:

FBI agents served search warrants and grand jury subpoenas on the activists on Sept. 24 and 27, allegedly relating to political speech in defense of the Palestinian and Colombian peoples. The activists have committed no crime; the real target of the raids are political dissent and free speech. These terror tactics are meant to have a chilling effect on progressive movements.

Date: Tuesday, October 5, 2010
Time: 4:30 p.m.
Location: Outside FBI headquarters
111 Washington Ave S
(Corner of Marquette and Washington Aves)
Minneapolis, MN
