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
Additionally... THIS EMAIL PROVES
THEY HAD THIS PLANNED BEFORE THE ACTIONS IN SEATTLE MAYDAY.
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.
