Activists Seek to Subpoena Informant Karen Sullivan -- Antiwar activists are now going on the offensive in court. Mick Kelly and his attorneys announced at a press conference in Minneapolis on Friday that they will make a motion to subpoena "Karen Sullivan," the recently unveiled FBI informant who infiltrated the Anti-War Committee prior to the 2008 RNC. Kelly was shot at close range on the final day of the protests. "By law, we should have been given all information about this ‘Sullivan’ character," said Kelly's attorney Ted Dooley, but so far, information on Sullivan has been absent from the discovery process.
Last Friday's national "terrorism" raids against antiwar activists continue to dominate conversation in the Twin Cities social justice community. On Monday, over 200 people rallied outside the FBI building at Marquette and Washington in downtown Minneapolis (see photos from TC Daily Planet), and Thursday evening will be the formative meeting at Walker Church for a solidarity committee to defend those investigated for alleged "material support of terrorism."
