U.S. Intervention in Colombia, Oct. 28

Tom Burke, co-founder of the Colombia Action Network and a recent target of the FBI for his political activities, will be speaking at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee on Thursday, Oct. 28, at 7:00pm in Bolton Hall B46 on the topic "U.S. Intervention in Colombia."

Burke will be talking about U.S. foreign policy in Colombia, the School of the Americas, and Plan Colombia.

Burke is a long-time trade union and Latin America solidarity activist. He helped launch the Boycott Coca-Cola campaign in the 1990's, organized delegations to Colombia, and is outspoken in the media on U.S. foreign policy in Colombia.

Burke was recently subpoenaed, along with around a dozen other international solidarity activists, to a Grand Jury in Chicago, for what many consider to be a repressive move on the government to intimidate international solidarity activists who challenge U.S. foreign policy.

This event is being hosted by Milwaukee Students for a Democratic Society. It is free and open to the public.

FBI Raids Spark Protest in Milwaukee


FBI Raids Spark Protest in Milwaukee
Milwaukee, along with over 30 other cities, to protest Oct. 5th

A protest is planned outside the Federal Building (3rd St. and Wisconsin Ave.) in Milwaukee, WI, on Oct. 5th, 5:45pm, as part of a national day of action against the FBI raids on seven homes and an anti-war office. The raids took place on Friday, September 24, 2010 and targeted antiwar and solidarity activists in the Midwest. Thousands have already come together across the country in protest of the FBI raids.

"Across the country, organizations and individuals are standing together to protest the United States government’s attempt to silence and criminalize anti-war and international solidarity activists," commented SDS organizer Natasha Morgan.

Morgan, a student activist in Milwaukee, was one of the activists contacted by the FBI, although her home was not searched.

The protest is planned by the Milwaukee Activist Defense Network, a newly-formed network of activists that includes members of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), Peace Action, MEChA, and many other organizations in Milwaukee.

Tuesday's protest will have three demands: 1) End repression of anti-war and international solidarity activists!; 2) Return all materials seized in the raid!; and 3) Stop the Grand Jury Subpoenas of activists!
