The people of Arizona aren’t under seige, the indigenous people of this hemisphere are coming home!

There is something I cannot wrap my mind around. I was with a friend last night and I was talking about a recent study done by the University of Cincinnati that showed that the people most likely to be detained and arrested under the new AZ Bill 1070 were Native Americans of the state of Arizona? Her response by baffled me and this isn’t a racist person but it showed that people in this country have been fed a bunch lies to the point of absurdity. Her response wasl, “that sucks but those people along the border in Arizona are under seige”.

National Day of Action January 25th Against FBI Repression of Anti War and International Solidarity Activists

Jan 25th Louisville Federal Building

January 25th the Louisville Committee Against FBI and Police Repression participated in the National Day of Action in 50 cities against FBI Repression of Anti War and International Solidarity activists.

Back Ground:

We are coming together in response to the FBI raids on seven homes and an anti-war office on Friday, September 24, 2010. The FBI also handed subpoenas to testify before a federal grand jury to fourteen activists in Illinois, Minnesota, and Michigan. These activists are involved in many groups, including the Twin Cities Anti-War Committee, the Palestine Solidarity Group, the Colombia Action Network, Students for a Democratic Society, and the Freedom Road Socialist Organization. These activists and many others came together to organize the 2008 anti-war marches during the Republican National Convention in St. Paul.

Across the country organizations and individuals are standing together to protest the United States government’s attempt to silence and criminalize anti-war and international solidarity activists. We see the raids and subpoenas as an attack on anti-war and other progressive movements. It is an attack on our freedom to speak, our freedom to assemble with like-minded people, and our freedom to tell the government that their actions and policies are wrong. It is an attempt to clear the way for more wars and occupations of other countries by the U.S. military.
