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.

On October 19, 2009, 49-year-old Pedro Juan Tavarez died in a Boston hospital while in ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) custody.

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.
