Humanitarian Acts Can Lead To FBI Raids

Humanitarian aid, or aiding terrorists?

Minneapolis City Council members Gary Shiff, Ward 9, and Elizabeth Glidden, Ward 8, hosted a breakfast meeting on civil rights and freedom of speech at Mercado Central on Lake Street, Minneapolis. Speakers were Bruce Nestor, National Lawyers Guild and Coleen Rowley, FBI whistle blower. This discussion was prompted by the September 24 raids by the FBI on local peace activists. The laws in place and the recent Supreme Court rulings have made many seemingly innocent activities subject to action by government agencies.

The material aid to terrorists could be as a result of humanitarian actions which could be interpreted as freeing the “terrorists” to do other things. Sound confusing? It is.
