The Master’s Tools: How the Government Manipulates the Legal System to Suppress Dissent

From racist attacks targeting Lodi’s Muslim community, to attempts to silence and imprison political activists in San Francisco and San Diego, dissent and freedom of speech are under attack. In recent months, the federal government has escalated its campaign to disrupt, scapegoat, and isolate targeted communities by using grand juries and FBI intimidation. Please join us for a discussion on standing up to government repression, and in solidarity with those under attack.

Find out how a grand jury operates, what your rights are, and how local activists are resisting this governmental abuse of power.

Speakers:

Katya Komisaruk, author of Beat the Heat: How to HandleEncounters with Law Enforcement.

A social justice activist and former member of the Weather Underground.

Local activists with Federal Grand Jury experience.
