We would like to thank all members of the community who have joined in speaking out regarding the FBI's intrusion into the home of our friend Shakir Hamoodi and his family. The attendance of more than 100 diverse community members at the news conference last Wednesday and the outpouring of letters to the editor has been most heartening. It has also been good to hear that the FBI has "cleared" Life for Relief & Development, the charity that Shakir Hamoodi works with that was also raided by the FBI last Monday (see: MSNBC article). We also encourage you, if you are on campus today, to check out a demonstration on this matter at 2 p.m. at Speakers' Circle being co-sponsored by Students for Progressive Action and the Muslim Students Organization.
