WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- The FBI has collected information about tactics and training used by antiwar protesters in an effort to blunt potential violence by extremist elements, a federal law enforcement official said Sunday.

The FBI warned of tactics used by such groups in a weekly bulletin circulated to 15,000 law enforcement agencies around the country last month before large demonstrations in Washington and San Francisco to protest the Iraq war.

It described activist strategies like videotaping arrests to intimidate police and using the Internet to recruit and raise funds.

Civil rights groups and legal scholars quoted by The New York Times expressed concern that monitoring protesters could signal a return to the abuses of the 1960s and 1970s, when J. Edgar Hoover was FBI director and agents routinely spied on political protesters including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The resulting restrictions on FBI investigations of political activities were relaxed last year when Attorney General John Ashcroft, citing the September 11, 2001 attacks, issued guidelines giving agents authority to attend political rallies, mosques and any other public events.

Here we go, they already are starting to classify protesters as terrorists and are using the same powers provided to them in the "patriot act" aginst protesters instead of against terrorist cells wanting to do extreme damage to civilian populations....

What has happened here? This should be a hot topic folks!!!
It doesn't get anymore important than this IMHO.

Kudos sirCyco for posting this.


The hammer is coming down...and on the wrong people. I know an activist who leads seminars on non-violent protest and has been black-listed by TSA in the last month. Between this and what was witneesed in Miami on Friday, 2004 is setting up to be the Royal Rumble.

Well I'm happy that the CIA was there.

I get nervous when the commies, unions, anarchists, atheists, gays and dykes, radical students, and any other perpetually angry type gets together to plot the downfall of my society.

I hope they brought a lot of film too.

I have commented many times on these boards about the fact that MANY "groups" are staging "protests" under the guise of "Anti War In Iraq" whie their TRUE agenda is to gain membership in their ANTI American loser brigade...

They suck the well meaning, yet ignorant citizen into their parade in the hopes of enjoining him/her to their TRUE agenda which is without fail to bring America to its knees.

Once caught up in the furor/adrenylin of the moment most sign up without so much as a clue to what they have actually joined.

THIS is what the FBI is looking into and I say "Where do I donate to the cause"?!

These commies and pinkos have been plying their trade in deciept for TOO LONG now unchallenged. I say CHALLENGE them. MAKE them prove their harmlessness in COURT.

Usually I am against using the courts to settle petty disputes BUT this is NO petty dispute. THIS IS the future of our great country.

If those who seek to do us harm think they can come here and deploy methodology that will cause harm without consequence WE ARE ALREADY BEATEN...
