At least seven local activists have been subpoenaed in the
last week to appear before a federal grand jury convened in
SF. In recent decades, the federal government has
increasingly used the grand jury to intimidate and harass
activists pushing for social justice.

yourself and your community, and why you should know how

Modern-Day Witch Hunts Must End!
As government repression in general increases, so does the
use of the federal grand jury to intimidate, incarcerate
and render impotent activists across social movements. In recent years,
pressure on the animal rights, environmental justice,anti-war and
anarchist movements has increased exponentially. At a recent hearing
before the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, John E.
Lewis,Deputy Assistant Director of the Counterterrorism Division of the
FBI, testified that,“Investigating and preventing animal rights extremism
and eco-terrorism is one of the FBI’s highest domestic terrorism
priorities.”
