U.S. Attorney escalates attacks on civil liberties of anti-war,
Palestinian human rights activists
On Friday, May 6, the U.S. government froze the bank accounts of
Hatem Abudayyeh and his wife, Naima.
This unwarranted attack on a leading member of the Palestinian
community in Chicago is the latest escalation of the repression of
anti-war and Palestinian community organizers by the FBI, U.S.
Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.
Hatem Abudayyeh is one of 23 activists from Minnesota, Michigan, and
Illinois subpoenaed to a federal grand jury in Chicago, and his home
was raided by the FBI in September of last year. Neither Hatem
Abudayyeh nor Naima Abudayyeh have been charged with any crime.
