8/30: Solidarity with grand jury resistors

Stand in solidarity with the grand jury resistors on August 30th

A rally will be held in front of the Federal Court House (1000 SW 3rd Ave) on August 30th to stand in solidarity with grand jury resistors. The rally will begin at 12:30pm and will last until 3:30. A federal grand jury has convened and already 4 people in the Pacific Northwest have been subpoenaed to testify against their comrades. Two of the subpoenaed live in Portland and have boldly refused to cooperate with the grand jury, potentially facing jail time for doing so. For more information about the grand jury investigation please visit the Committee Against Political Repression's website:  http://nopoliticalrepression.wordpress.com/

Come out on 8/30 to show resistance to the FBI's repression and to let our friends know that we support them in these difficult times. Help us to create a culture of resistance by showing solidarity with those who have their backs against the wall.
