Chicago peace activists Joe Iosbaker and Stephanie Weiner recount the Sept. 24 FBI raid on their home in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood. The FBI simultaneously raided the homes of over a dozen peace activists in the Twin Cities. Iosbaker and Weiner attest that the FBI actions were taken in order to disrupt domestic peace activities as much as they were directed against solidarity actions with Palestine and Columbia, because unlike the Minneapolis peace activists, Iosbaker and Weiner have not traveled to Palestine or Columbia.
