WEEK OF ACTION FOR GRAND JURY RESISTERS
It is Prison Friday here at Scission and we shall turn our attention to a call from the Northwest to support Grand Jury resisters. I myself first got involved in the whole grand jury business shortly before one went off in 1971 and indicted me and three of my brothers. I joined with many others to fight back against a wave of political grand juries launched by the Nixon Justice Department then and throughout the early 70s. Later I found myself helping to organize the Committee to Stop the Grand Jury which was supporting resisters to a grand jury investigating the Brink truck robbery carried out by the Black Liberation Army around 1981, if I remember correctly. I got back into the grand jury resisters support issue with one up in Iowa that was harassing animal rights activists...and never looked back.
The State loves the grand jury and has used it forever to repress political activism of all stripes. We must continue the resistance.
