Where: JFK Federal Building • Government Center T • Boston

WHAT: Bring your signs, chants and outrage at this latest attack on freedom of expresion and political dissent

The government of Barack Obama is responsible for the acts of the FBI and we should demand an explanation and an immediate stop to the persecution of progressive activists. People in the U.S. should remember the Palmer Raids of yesteryears and say that we will not tolerate a repeat of history. We also have to work towards repealing the law that allows the state to persecute progressives: the Patriot Act.
