Add comment on:5 more face charges for May 2011 Seattle protest
During a may day protest in 2011, a handful of protesters broke the windows of Niketown (repeating the striking images from the WTO 1999 protest 10 years earlier) and also the glass door of a Federal courthouse building. Several people were immediately detained, and were sentences. Almost a year later, a series of people have been called to a Grand jury in Seattle. Some documents related to the subpoena ominously indicate that an unknown number of people in Oregon have their cell phone text messages tapped by law enforcement. This week, five more people have been given charges related to the may day protest. It is unknown what the source of evidence is, particularly given that the FBI and police agencies had a wide list of individuals they've been monitoring.
