Protestors gathered outside the Dirksen Federal Building Thursday, claiming the U.S. Attorney is trying to repress anti-war activists. They say four activists received subpoenas this week to appear before a grand jury.

One woman who was subpoenaed is a member of the Palestine Solidarity group. She says these actions are aimed at silencing the movement.

Protestors say it all began back in September when the FBI searched several homes belonging to activists.

The U.S. Attorney's office had no comment on Thursday's protest.
