Does the FBI have dirt on you or your group? Fill out a FOIA request!
The Triangle Committee to Stop FBI Repression invites you to join us for an enlightening form of civil engagement, on Wednesday, April 27, join us in filling out a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. By filling out a FOIA request, you can find out what information the government has about you or the groups you work with.
As many of you know, a federal agent infiltrated the Minnesota Antiwar Committee. For two and a half years the agent, while pretending to be an active member of the committee, raised money, befriended members, gave public speeches on behalf of the group, and handed internal reports to the government that described plans to go on an international solidarity trip to Palestine.
We are organizing an event to generate FOIA request to find out what level of scrutiny the movement in our parts is under. This collective action is part of our larger efforts to find out where the FBI has been collecting information. It’s also critical to let them know we're paying attention!
Representatives from the National Lawyers Guild will be on hand to guide us through the process. There will also be an opportunity to table and share information. Press will be invited.
Please join us! Bring yourself, friends, community, and a snack or finger-food to share (if you like, it’s not necessary).
An injury to one is an injury to all!
