Protest the Raids
Read or listen to the article linked above about raids on the homes of antiwar activists.
Of course, most of us may say, “First they came for the anti war activists, but since I am not an anti war activist...” But you know where the story ends: with you and me.
I know three of the people whose homes were raided.
I know them through my activism in the UAW.
All three are soldiers of solidarity, by that I mean, people who show up on the picket lines and who support solidarity wherever and whenever it is called for.
I attest to these allegiances without qualification.
All three are workers, parents, and people committed to peace, equality, solidarity, and justice.
They are friends not terrorists.
They are men and women of conscience and commitment.
If the feds can terrorize them, they can terrorize you and me as well.
Note in the interview the connection to Columbia, the most dangerous country in the world FOR TRADE UNIONISTS. They don’t fire union supporters in Columbia, they murder them.
Now the FBI is raiding the homes of people who work for the union movement in the USA and who advocate for peace rather than war.
Pick up the phone or email Obama, go straight to the top and demand the feds stop terrorizing workers who are campaigning for peace, solidarity, and justice. Don’t wait. Don’t think for a minute that you can hide from the thought police. The intimidation won’t stop at your door. What’s to stop them? Your silence?
The only thing that can stop harassment is solidarity.
To contact Obama:
