just ordered this incredibly beautiful shirt from the Seattle Grand Jury Resister’s support store. thanks to pussy-strut for linking to it. they only have XL left but i’ll just turn it into a little tunic dress or something. i love this screenprint so fucking much
but if you haven’t heard about this latest HORSE SHIT related to Occupy/anarchism/young radicals/May Day/etc and the government persecution thereof, check this out:
the FBI and various bullshit “task forces” in Washington and Oregon (the entire Pacific Northwest region of the US) have been violently raiding “anarchist” houses and illegally detaining young people who are accused of….well, no one is sure exactly. a special “grand jury” has been convened to interrogate these kids about various thinly-veiled shit like “vandalism”. unlike literally every other form of police interrogation, victims of the “grand jury” are not allowed to not answer questions. meaning, you either tell them what they want to hear or you go to jail. having committed no crime, and having not been tried in front of a jury. you can be kept in jail for up to 18 months this way.
fuck the FBI and fuck the police and fuck neomccarthyism.
i feel like there’s a good portmanteau to be made with “anarchists” and “mccarthy” but i can’t think of one right now sorry im too angry and busy
