Minneapolis peace activists speak about FBI raids

Longish -- 24 minutes -- very ordinary peace activists talking about what it feels like to have the FBI turn up at 7:00 in the morning with subpoenas and search warrants to take away their computers and papers. Some are a little rhetorical; some carefully legalistic; none noticeably unnerving.

When my partner and I found ourselves embroiled with the no fly list, we were grateful for the institutions and individuals who stood in solidarity with us. That experience was a nuisance. What's happening to peace movement individuals in several cities today is different -- very threatening, very serious.
