Minneapolis, MN – More than 200 protesters met President Obama outside the Convention Center here, Aug. 30, where he spoke to a gathering of the American Legion. The demonstration was initiated by the Minnesota Committee to Stop FBI Repression and endorsed by a wide range of local progressive organizations.

Last fall, five Twin Cities homes and the offices of the Anti-War Committee were raided by the FBI as part of the Department of Justice attack on anti-war activists.
