Students Arrested Protesting FBI
28 Apr 2007
Modified: 03:00:53 PM
4 Harvard students were arrested on the evening of 4/26, protesting the actions of the FBI at a Mueller speech.
On Thursday night a group of four Harvard students was arrested during Robert Mueller's speech at the Kennedy School. The students were arrested for a peaceful demonstration, that involved standing up one by one and declaiming different incidences of human rights & civil liberties violations they believe the FBI is currently committing. They spoke out against these atrocities with statements such as: "Free the Panther Eight," "Free Herman Bell," "We Will Not Forget Cointelpro," "Stop Guantanamo," "Stop the Green Scare," and "Free the Victims of Operation Backfire," as well as reading off lists of names of people they believe to have been wrongly convicted and imprisoned by the FBI.

The students were audience members in the JFK School's Forum Room, then stood up to speak one at a time-- the first woman began her statements just as Robert Mueller claimed that he was at the Kennedy School to engage in a "dialogue" about civil liberties. Each student was promptly escorted out of the building by the Harvard University Police, handcuffed, and arrested. The Cambridge Police held and processed the students, who are being charged with "Disturbing a Public Assembly." They were released on bail shortly after midnight.

They are trying to set a precedent for the future society of Martial Law we may be living through if we don't wake up to the full spectrum dominance that they are preparing for us. Perhaps someone should have exclaimed: "9/11 was an inside job". I'd love to see how the FBI/cops would handle that without a moment's notice.
