ACLU: FBI Has Designated Activist Groups as Terrorists
The American Civil Liberties Union has obtained internal government
documents that show the FBI designated two Michigan activist groups as
potentially being "involved in terrorist activities." One of the groups
is
the anti-war organization Direct Action. The second group is called By
Any
Means Necessary - it is a national organization dedicated to defending
affirmative action, integration, and other gains of the civil rights
movement. ACLU staff attorney Ben Wizner said "When the FBI and local
law
enforcement identify affirmative action advocates as potential
terrorists,
every American has cause for concern." The ACLU has been conducting an
investigation into whether the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Forces has
been
engaged in political surveillance. As part of this investigation the
ACLU
has learned that the FBI has collected thousands of pages of documents
related to other activist groups including Greenpeace, United for Peace
and
Justice, Code Pink, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the
American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee and the Muslim Public
Affairs
Council.
