As of today at least nine (9) community organizers from throughout San Diego and other parts of California have been subpoenaed to appear before a federal grand jury. Presumably, the subpoenas are in relation to a federal investigation of the 2003 burning of a La Jolla apartment complex, which the Earth Liberation Front claimed responsibility for,
