From EFF's Secret Files: Anatomy of a Bogus Subpoena
On January 30th, 2009, Kristina Clair of Philadelphia, PA — one of the system administrators of the server that hosts the indymedia.us site — received in the mail a grand jury subpoena from the Southern District of Indiana federal court. The FBI had sent an email to Ms. Clair a couple of weeks earlier asking where a subpoena directed at the indymedia.us site should be sent. So, we at EFF were ready and waiting to evaluate the subpoena as soon as it arrived. Yet even we were surprised at what we saw.

STOP! the BU Bioterror Lab marched on the Boston University Campus
PIC_0253.JPG


On Friday, October 30th, 2009 a determined group of 15-20 anti-authoritarians, anarchists and concerned citizens marched on the Boston University campus with a message to send for the students and faculty: STOP the BU Bioterror Laboratory NOW!

Beginning around 2:30 in the afternoon and ending several hours later, a group consisting of the infamous Raging Grannies, people dressed in laboratory containment suits, and walking zombies came to life and marched all over the Boston University campus playing music, and chanting, "The Bio-lab ain't no good! We don't want it in our neighborhood!" along with other chants made upon the spot. The group was accompanied by people handing out leaflets with information about the BSL-4 Bioterror lab that was built during the Bush (W) years and with the full support of the current Mayor Menino. A bullhorn shouting information into the crowds of seemingly stunned BU students as they moved between classes along Commonwealth Ave in the afternoon.

Boston University administrators (who refused to give their names) were on-scene to make sure that the non-violent demonstration was carefully watched by a mixture of different law enforcement agencies. The campus police were the most visible but they were joined by Boston police and what looked like federal officers driving in circles around the group with their black cars with tinted windows taking pictures of the demonstrators as they chanted and made their way up and down Commonwealth Ave engaging every passerby with information and some music.

Cambridge City Council Votes Unanimously to Oppose Surveillance Cameras
surveillance.PNGBOSTON -- In the first move of this kind in the state--and perhaps the nation--Cambridge City Council voted 9-0 on February 2, 2009, to oppose the installation in the city of eight surveillance cameras. The cameras were intended to form part of a network funded with a $4.6 million Department of Homeland Security grant linking Cambridge and eight other Greater Boston communities.

The Council took this action after two sessions during which Councilors sought to learn more about a secretive grant process that was four to six years in the making. They also heard testimony from dozens of Cambridge residents who feared the cameras could violate their First Amendment and privacy rights.

Philippines: Don’t revive the “Monster of Morong, Bataan”
Bataan-Nuclear-Power-Plant-Philippines.jpgMonday, 02 February 2009 MANILA, Philippines—For making the public choose between paying more for power generation that they do not need to begin with, and tolerating misplaced priorities where debt service supersedes social welfare, the Freedom from Debt Coalition today urged Congress to stop the planned rehabilitation, re-commission and commercial operation of the controversial Bataan Nuclear Power Plant.

Queer Liberation and Anarchist Communism
DSC00140.JPGAs anarchist communists, it is only logical and consistent with our principles in the struggle for a free humanity that we support the personal, cultural, and institutional fight against patriarchy, hetero-sexism, the gender bi-nary system and all other struggles for queer liberation both in themselves and in their intersectionalities with capitalism, the state, white supremacy, and all other forms of human oppression.

The Mortgage Crisis in the USA
drooker4.gifCommentators complain of "partisanship" in Washington. Society's problems are said to result from infighting between parties. We should celebrate, then, because Democrats and Republicans have agreed on a plan to end the mortgage crisis. What solution do they offer? Handouts to Big Business, and "fiscal discipline" for the rest.
