NY Times: FBI Watched Activist Groups

@ 12:27 AM (104 months, 26 days ago)

Looks like the FBI conducted surveillance and intelligence-gathering on activist groups such as those involved in issues like the environment, poverty, and animal cruelty.

"Counterterrorism agents at the Federal Bureau of Investigation have conducted numerous surveillance and intelligence-gathering operations that involved, at least indirectly, groups active in causes as diverse as the environment, animal cruelty and poverty relief, newly disclosed agency records show."

"The latest batch of documents, parts of which the A.C.L.U. plans to release publicly on Tuesday, totals more than 2,300 pages and centers on references in internal files to a handful of groups, including PETA, the environmental group Greenpeace and the Catholic Workers group, which promotes antipoverty efforts and social causes."
