The City of Concord, NH has applied for a Homeland Security grant for a $258,000 militarized Ballistic Engineered Armored Response Counter Attack Truck (BearCat) aka a Tank. The application stated that terrorism “slants primarily towards the domestic type,” and “the threat is real and here”. It went on to say that “groups such as sovereign citizens, free staters, and Occupy New Hampshire are active and present daily challenges.”

On Monday August 12 the City is holding a public hearing on whether or not it should accept the DHS grant. Turn out with signs,
prepared statements, or just yourself to stand up for your community and against militarization!
