New presentation added to Seattle Anarchist Book Fair: Grand Jury Resistance

FBI REPRESSION AND GRAND JURY RESISTANCE

August 25 and 26, presentation happening at 11am both days.

On Wednesday, July 26, the FBI and Joint Terrorism Task Force raided three houses in Portland, looking for black clothing, electronics, flag-making materials, and anarchist literature. That same morning, they served federal grand jury subpoenas to two individuals in Portland and one individual in Olympia, for an investigative grand jury to convene on August 2nd in Seattle. Since then one more subpoena has been served in Olympia.

Federal investigative grand juries are secretive, repressive, and often misunderstood. This presentation will explore the nature and purpose of grand juries. We will also talk about tactics for resisting FBI repression, and what to do if you are approached by an FBI agent in relation to a grand jury or otherwise.

    Black clothing and flags are considered dangerous in a country where every idiot can have a firearm :) This should be in the realm of fiction but sadly it’s what passes for reality nowadays.
    I’ve written an anarchist satire where a middle-aged woman becomes The Ms.siah and changes the world for the better. http://www.facebook.com/DOGSharonTheFutureIsFemale
    DOG is an acronym for Daughter Of God :)
    Come and say hello
