Anti-war activists speak out about FBI raids

By Cristina Aguirre

The FBI conducted raids in Minneapolis and Chicago on Sept. 24, targeting those suspected to be providing “material support” to international terrorist groups. Outside the Chicago FBI headquarters, 2111 W. Roosevelt Road, approximately 200 people protested the searches and the subpoenas on Sept. 27. Joe Iosbaker, an activist in Chicago and chief steward for Local 73 of the Service Employees International Union, was one of the subpoenaed. His wife, Stephanie Weiner, spoke out at the rally.  A press conference was held before hand addressing the couple’s thoughts of the raid at their home.
