Local Boston University student activists, including members of the Student Underground newspaper collective, are holding a vigil for their friend Harmeet Sooden who is being held hostage in Iraq.

Grand Jury Targets Portland Activists
08 Dec 2005
Two Portland activists, Frank Winbigler and Shannon (Nonny) Urick, were today served with papers ordering them to be a witness for a federal Grand Jury, and were also advised that they are both a target of the Grand Jury's investigation.
