FBI Raids Waken Slumbering Peace Movement to take Indignant Action

It’s just as possible for anti-war activists to commit crimes as anyone else, but FBI searches and seizures of items as odd as a child’s drawing and a Martin Luther King poster from anti-war activists this week in Minnesota and Illinois have undeniably roused a moribund peace movement back into high gear. United for Peace and Justice has issued the call for no fewer than 20 protests this week, starting this afternoon:

Monday 9/27:
Boston, MA – 4 to 6 pm, JFK Federal Building at 15 New Sudbury St.
Buffalo, NY- 4:30 pm at FBI Building – Corner of South Elmwood Ave. & Niagara St.
Chicago, IL – 4:30 FBI building, 2111 W. Roosevelt Road.?
Durham, NC – 12 noon Federal Building, 323 E Chapel Hill St
Gainesville, FL – 4:30 PM at FBI Building, 104 N Main Street # 4
Kalamazoo, MI – 4:30 Federal Building, 410 W Michigan Ave
Minneapolis, MN – 4:30, FBI Office Monday, 111 Washington Ave. S.
Salt Lake City, Utah – 9 AM at Federal Building, 125 South State Street

Tuesday 9/28:

Atlanta, GA – Noon, FBI Building at 2635 Century Parkway NE
Boston, MA – 5 pm, JFK Federal Building at 15 New Sudbury St.

Washington DC – 4:30 – 5:30 FBI Building, 935 Pennsylvania Ave NW

Wednesday 9/29:
Albany, NY – 5 to 6 pm Federal Building at Clinton & Pearl

These are protests are an opportunity to:

1. Question Authority regarding surveillance of apparently law-abiding groups (no arrests were made in these raids)
2. Question Authority regarding the broader expansion of government surveillance over millions of law-abiding Americans
3. Question Authority regarding the wisdom of ongoing bloody and expensive wars with no clear end in sight

    The federal government, and especially “law enforcement,” is immune to criticism since they deal in force and power. If you want change you better join a militia (according to the faux Tea Party). The old avenue of change through representative government has been closed off to mere citizens, usurped by corporate power/the ownership class to do their bidding – which seems to be the establishment of a police state, repression and censorship, control of the media (including the internet), and the complete squashing of independent thought.
