UJP Activist: UJP Task Force to Oppose FBI raids Meeting on January 11








UJP TASK FORCE TO OPPOSE FBI RAIDS MEETING ON JANUARY 11
============================================================

 Hello UJP activist,

The first meeting of the UJP task force opposing the FBI raids in  Minneapolis
and Chicago, and other government repressions, will meet at 6:30PM on Tuesday,
 Jan. 11, at 689 Mass. Ave. in Central Square Cambridge. The agenda is  open to
suggestion but will include

  * Jan. 25 Stop the FBI rally at the JFK  building concerning the activists
ordered to appear before a Grand Jury

      * an  update on what is happening with the other movement activists facing
subpoenas

      * other cases both local and Wikileaks,

      * and knowing our rights. 

Further actions  or programs could be discussed.  There also is a citywide
group forming and  we'll discuss that. (See article Boston Activists Meet to
Stop FBI Raids [1]) 

Why is this new UJP Task Force important?    The Supreme Court in June 
decided that "material support" for terrorist organizations can sometimes 
include activities normally considered educational, journalistic or 
humanitarian.  In short, what we do.  Some think the FBI is testing the waters
 to see how far they can go in pushing enforcement to shut down dissent.   We 
need to mobilize exposure and resistance to this repression; it is already  
beginning to affect us.   We have to stand together to stop this!

See you there!

Note: The meeting is being held at the office of the Unitarian-Universalist
Service Committee. Call 617-230-0632 if you get lost.
