Asheville, NC - Despite freezing rain, 35 protesters gathered in front of the Asheville Federal Building here, Jan. 25, chanting, "Stop the witch hunts, stop the raids - we are here we are not afraid!" The protest was a part of the national day of action in solidarity with the nine newly subpoenaed activists who were called before a grand jury in Chicago.

The Chicago grand jury, headed by Patrick Fitzgerald, is targeting anti-war and international solidarity activists. A total of 23 activists have received subpoenas to appear in front to the grand jury.
