National Call In Day in Support of NW Grand Jury Resisters - Wed 8/29

*Call In Day- Wednesday, August 29*^*th* * : *We are asking for people to call the US Attorney again this Wednesday, August 29^th . Call Jenny Durkan at _*(800) 797-6722* _ and leave a  message with the person who answers the phone. Last call in day, they tried to send people to a voicemail box. If they attempt to do that, tell whoever you are talking to that you would like to leave a message with them and not a voicemail.

_An example of what you might say:_

“Hi. I am Jolene Seaside. I am calling about the grand jury being
impaneled in Seattle tomorrow, August 30th. This case clearly shows that
the FBI and government are persecuting political dissent in our country.
It is despicable that US attorney and the government are harassing and
intimating this group of people for their political beliefs. I demand
that the grand jury and investigation be ended immediately, that the
governments repression of social movements stop, and that any items
seized in the raids be returned. Thank you for taking my comments.”

When you call the U.S Attorney's office, please let them know that you
are speaking for yourself and not the individuals resisting the grand
jury subpoenas. Be aware of how the things you say will impact the
people you are trying to help. If you make a call, please email us
_) and let us know how what kind
of response you got from the Attorney's office.

On August 2^nd , we overwhelmed the US attorney's office in Washington
with phone calls demanding an end to the grand jury.* *We want to keep
up the pressure and make sure the US attorney knows we are still
standing firmly in solidarity with those resisting the grand jury.

*Thursday, August 30*^*th* *:* Come to Seattle to stand against the
Grand Jury witch hunt! There will be a demonstration in solidarity with
