The FBI is targeting tar-sands activists. Should that worry you? | Grist

Blocking roads is a pretty run-of-the mill protest tactic.

Blocking a road is also a state-level misdemeanor at most, and outside the purview of the FBI, said Larry Hildes, an attorney based in […]

Despite warnings by senior US officials that thousands of Chileans were being tortured and slaughtered, then Secretary of State Kissinger told Pinochet, “You did a great service to the West in overthrowing Allende.” Rather than calling peaceful protesters “despicable”, perhaps Senator McCain should have used that term to describe Kissinger’s role in the brutal 1975 […]

Article: NYPD Commissioner Bratton compares NYC Black Lives Matter protests to Paris and Mumbai terrorist attacks | OpEdNews

The Rainbow Family “describes itself as a nonviolent group spreading the message of peace and love.” The group has only met twice in Montana in the last fifteen years, once in 2000 and once in 2013.

New NYPD Anti-Terror Unit Will Get Machine Guns To Police Protesters: Gothamist

Initial reports of Commissioner Bratton’s plans suggest the opposite of progress. His demands for less oversight of the NYPD and a more militarized police force that would use counter-terrorism tactics against protestors are deeply misguided and frankly offensive. We need an NYPD that is more accountable to New Yorkers and that stops criminalizing our communities, […]

Phil Africa of MOVE dies under suspicious circumstances in Pennsylvania prison

While the Senate released the executive summary of the torture report, there are still over 6,000 pages of the main report that remain classified.
