Here is Sarah Smith's full statement from a December 6 press conference:
Friday morning, December 3, I received a phone call from an FBI agent. He asked if I had about 30 minutes to sit down and speak with him so he could ask me some questions. I asked about what and he said he "was not at liberty to discuss it." I then asked if I needed a lawyer present and he said it was up to me but that I was not in any trouble and that they just had a few questions.Smith's father, Stan Smith, added "I think Patrick Fitzgerald, the US District Attorney, Robert Parker of the FBI need to see my daughter and her friends and apologize to them. And I think President Obama, who was elected in 2008 because he said he would stop this sort of thing, should make a point on his next trip to Chicago to personally apologize to my daughter and her friends for how his government is intimidating them."
Meanwhile, there are actions across the country to protest this crackdown on peace activists (sign the petition here). Firedoglake's Kevin Gosztola has this report:
The hunting down of activists began on September 24th when the FBI raided homes and offices of activists from Minneapolis and Chicago. Computers, phones, documents and other personal items were seized and the FBI officially subpoenaed 14 activists to appear before a Grand Jury. The FBI began to contact members of the "peace community" and ask them what they knew about the subpoenaed activists' "material support for terrorism."Democracy anyone?
