Milwaukee, WI – Students and community members held a rally in front of Milwaukee’s Federal Building to protest the Sept. 24 FBI raids on anti-war activists in the Midwest and elsewhere in the United States.
Members of a wide variety of community organizations showed their support, including speakers from the Latin America Solidarity Committee, International Action Center, AFSCME local 82 President Gilbert Johnson, and Milwaukee Graduate Assistants Association (MGAA) Co-president Lee Abbott.
Student speakers included Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) in Waukesha and Milwaukee, as well as the Chicano organization MEChA.
“I personally went to Chicago with other activists to give support to those whose homes had been raided,” UW-Waukesha SDS member Chance Zombor said, “Tensions were high, and the victims of the raids were shaken.
“But, if the FBI thinks they’re going to intimidate us into silence, they’re wrong,” Zombor added.
