Videos on What Every Activist Needs to Know About FBI Raids and Grand Juries

 
On Nov 6, DC activists and lawyers responded to the recent wave of FBI raids and the confiscating of computers from anti-war and Middle East activists' homes across the US, by organizing a teach-in made up of several panels, including a summary of "why now" and what to do when subpoenaed before grand juries. This event referenced the recent "Joint Terrorism" Task Force raids of local area activists' homes, and the surveillance and labeling of at least 53 local activists as "terrorists", all of which was inputed into Federal govt databases.
