The Minnesota legislature met in a ‘special session’ here, Oct. 18, to deal with flood relief for the southern part of the state. Although the special session lasted less than three hours, 62 legislators, including members of the leadership of the State House and Senate, signed a “Dear Colleague” letter to support their constituents and others who were targeted by the September 24 FBI raids.

I was subpoenaed to a federal grand jury in May of 1982 in New York City.

The FBI handed subpoenas to testify before a federal grand jury to about a dozen activists in Illinois, Minnesota, and Michigan. They also attempted to intimidate activists in California and North Carolina.
