We all have a right to know if the government is investigating us, and we have a right to see the contents of our FBI files. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., John Lennon, Cesar Chavez -- the list of targets of domestic FBI surveillance is long and distinguished. Our right to inspect our own FBI file is guaranteed under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The FOIA is a law ensuring public access to US government records. This evening will include brief presentations, discussion, and an opportunity to fill out a FOIA to seek information on government surveillance of you. Co-sponsored by the Defending Dissent Foundation, the Council on American-Islamic Relations SF Bay Area, the Asian Law Caucus and the Resource Center for Nonviolence.
This party is FREE and in defense of your FREEdom!
