FBI Delivers Subpoenas to More Activists in Chicago, Pushback Continues

On Friday, December 3rd, the FBI delivered at least three subpoenas to Chicago activists to appear before a grand jury, as confirmed by National Lawyers Guild attorney Jim Fennerty. By Monday, December 6th, activists rallied in defense of those subpoenaed. Read statement by one of those subpoenaed.

The December delivery comes in the wake of an September sweep targeting fourteen activists in the wake of a Supreme Court ruling in February. But activists and allies have resisted what many have decried as harrasment of community activists engaged in no wrongful activity.
