Because freedom can't protect itself
I think that until any particular activist group proves itself not a clear and present danger, the FBI should be aware and watching. Occupy has had some problems keeping some extremists in line. As a occupier in Chicago, I saw criminal acts committed by people who called themselves anarchsts. I won't pretend to say one way or the other who they were. I will say that the occupy people represent some of the finest that I have met in my life.
The idea of them only having 37 pages is ludicrous and they would be falling down on the job if that were even remotely accurate. I was watched in the 60's and left alone when I presented no danger. The FBI also watches the right wii nuts as well. Many of them are violent in nature and I appreciate the idea of someone keeping an eye on them.
It is imperative that we continue to be involved in the legistative process and strive to move the country toward a more ethcal space. This cannot be achieved if we see it as a matter of us and them, we have to work together, striving to find the commonalities.
pelican bay discrimination
they just locked us down for something that supposaly took place in other prison but they only locked up us Mexicans and we can't do anything from this wall so please people from Aclu help we are being targets of race discrimination here at pelican bay state prison we are on state of emergency lockdown but yet all other races are going to yard recieving packages why we don't have nothing coming.. they the prison staff don't even let us know what we have coming never plan of action It has been since September 5-12 and yet they haven't properly inform us we are being targeted cause of our race this kind of discrimination has been going on for months any other race does something and they program same day or next day us nothing I haven even got my package for months please help us.
Wish there would be more over site of corruption and constitutional violations in our community governments. Rather then spy on citizens exercising their Constitutional Rights and Liberties.
The problem with the ACLU is we tell them what is going on, but they won't help us. They have never helped even one of us. They don't need the documents, they know what is going on, because thousands of people whose lives are being destroyed by "intelligence" have told them everything about it. It's worse than anything people would ever believe, it's beyond Orwellian. Read about Cointelpro, CIA dirty tricks, how it is legal for them to test directed energy weapons on people who are under investigation!!! They moved a DOD radiation scientist across from me, and he was freaking hitting me with a gamma ray gun, and he admitted doing it! We don't have anyone who will stand up for us, certainly not the ACLU!
the FBI has become a domestic intelligence organization. that is, their sole purpose is now to spy on american citizens.
Ah yes, Hoover lives.
Ivan Greenberg has authored two major works on the FBI spying on Americans with "Surveillance in America" and "Dangers of Dissent."
I heard a talk by him where he claimed that the FBI had destroyed 250 million documents.
The books for some reason are very expensive which is very unfortunate.
