  Anonymous Announces Operation Grand Jury Resisters

Greetings, we are anonymous. It has recently come to our attention that 
the FBI, local police and the department of homeland security are now 
and have been engaged in acts of espionage against US citizens. Their 
only reasoning for doing this is they feel threatened by their own 
citizens. It is clear that they would not feel this way if they were 
acting appropriately in the first place. With so many new laws enacted 
in the past 10 years that slowly but surely eat away at our rights and 
freedoms as human beings such as NDAA and the USA Patriot Act it should 
be no surprise that there has been a rise in activism within the 
citizenship. That in itself is a right protected by our constitution and 
bill of rights that they so callously spit upon every day.

On May Day, 2012; in the city of Seattle there was a large demonstration 
as there is every year supporting workers rights. As usual, there were 
supporters of other causes on scene and a large contigency of Black 
Bloc. They caused the usual destruction to banks, store fronts and also 
to an old federal court house building. This story of course, was blown 
way out of proportion. Even though there was a large amount of damage 
done, it was only done by a small group within the Black Bloc. While 
anonymous does not inherently condone destruction and violence we also 
do not speak against it. It is up to the individual and or groups to 
decide upon tactics that they use to get across the point that they are 
trying to voice. We understand that many of us in the world today feel 
powerless against the machine and railing against it with words can feel 
ineffectual. It is then that many turn to "violence". Though many will 
say smashing out a window is not exactly an act of violence as there is 
no harm done or directed toward any people.

There were many individuals targeted by the police and federal officials 
following that day for the actions and an investigation and a Federal 
Secret Grand Jury was launched to find those responsible so they could 
be brought to justice... or so they say.

There is one big problem with the story that is being told regarding 
that though. That grand jury was already put together long before the 
May Day 'riots'.

On Wednesday July 25th, the FBI conducted a series of coordinated raids 
against activists in Portland, Olympia, and Seattle. They subpoenaed 
several people to a special federal grand jury, and seized computers, 
black clothing and anarchist literature. This comes after similar raids 
in Seattle in July and earlier raids of squats in Portland. Though the 
FBI has said that the raids are part of a violent crime investigation, 
the truth is that the federal authorities are conducting a political 
witch-hunt against Anarchists and others working toward a more just, 
free, and equal society. The warrants served specifically listed 
anarchist literature as evidence to be seized, pointing to the fact that 
the FBI and police are targeting this group of people because of their 
political ideas. Pure and simple, these raids and the grand jury 
hearings are being used to intimidate people whose politics oppose the 
state's agenda.

Additionally... THIS EMAIL PROVES 

For all of these reasons and others, including this quote:

"An FBI surveillance team, followed five of the suspects north from 
Portland when they drove to Olympia the day before the May first riots." 
the FBI agent told the court.

Anonymous has created Operation Grand Jury Resisters. #OpGJResisters We 
shall do what we do in support of these brave individuals who are 
standing up so strongly against a corrupt system they are willing to sit 
in a federal prison in solitary confinement. we call on the hive to 
attack two websites every Monday morning from 9am until noon pacific 
standard time.

First:: www.wawd.uscourts.gov <http://www.wawd.uscourts.gov>
Second:: www.bop.gov <http://www.bop.gov>

It is highly important that these sites are rendered inaccessible, 
firstly each Monday and secondly each additional day that OpGJResisters 
makes an announcement that there is another court date, or, that there 
is an action planned by other activists in that area.

We are anonymous.
We are legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
Expect us.
Things are developing in these cases on a daily basis, so in order to 
keep up
Please also please check out these webpages for up to date information
