Tom Burke of Committee to Stop FBI Repression speaking at Milwaukee rally

Milwaukee – 150 people protested here, March 19, to demand an end to the wars and occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Two additional themes of the protest included a demand to stop Governor Scott Walker’s war on the people of Wisconsin and to stop FBI repression on anti-war and international solidarity activists.

Protesters marched throughout the city and chanted on behalf of workers and students who are facing unprecedented cuts and anti-union legislation.

Tom Burke, of the Committee to Stop FBI Repression, spoke at the protest. Burke urged people at the rally to sign the pledge to resist FBI and grand jury repression. The pledge is a commitment to take action when anti-war and international solidarity activists are called to the Chicago Grand Jury headed by Patrick Fitzgerald or are indicted.

Over 50 people signed the pledge during the course of the rally.
