Antiwar.com: Obama Continues Bush’s Attacks on Activists

by Kevin B. Zeese, September 30, 2010

Earlier this week the FBI raided six peace activists’ homes in Minneapolis and Chicago as well as a Minneapolis office of an antiwar group. Agents kicked down doors of homes with guns drawn, smashed furniture, and seized computers, documents, phones, and other materials without making any arrests. These groups do not use guns or bombs. They are not terrorists. Their “weapons” are leaflets, newsletters, and nonviolent demonstrations. 

The FBI searches highlight a dangerous trend that has been building for nearly a decade: domestic surveillance of peace and other activists. Americans need to understand the context of these raids so they can work to stop the infringement of constitutional rights.
