This site has dedicated itself to spreading a non-cooperative attitude and practice towards the federal grand jury which currently investigates anarchists in the Pacific Northwest. This remains true, but the scope of what we are dealing with here has grown. Non-cooperation must extend beyond the grand jury room to every place the cops show up.
This post originally had a shorter write-up about the situation that was submitted to PSA. We have now chosen to replace the text with this more complete post from Saynothing.info. Sorry for any confusion.
They’ve visited a number of houses and The Evergreen State College looking for various people. Sometimes they’ve named names; other times they’ve just made their presence known and gone away. We have no firm indication that they are attempting to serve subpoenas.
What should we do on a day like today?
May Day anarchists took over downtown Seattle in May 2012, and Seattle Police Department’s new top cop promises there will not be mayhem this year.
On Monday, Seattle Police Chief John Diaz announced his retirement, and Mayor Mike McGinn said Assistant Chief Jim Pugel will be the interim chief.
Even though Diaz will still be chief on May 1, Pugel is getting ready to take over the helm of the Seattle Police Department.
Pugel told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News reporter Amy Clancy that this year will be different.
-----Eight months ago I was subpoenaed for the Grand Jury investigating the incidents of May Day 2012 in Seattle Washington. However, unlike others involved I had not been “served”, therefore I had a chance to flee, and to do so legally. These past eight months have been the most trying months that I have ever lived. In this period I have loved yet I have lost, and I have felt emboldened yet defeated.
PORTLAND -- They strike in the dark of night, targeting banks and businesses by breaking windows and ATMs.
Surveillance video obtained by NewsChannel 8 shows several recent attacks. Dressed in all black, their faces covered, a swarm of anarchists used rocks and projectiles to inflict their damage.
"There is certainly a boldness that goes along with that type of dramatic vandalism," said Commander Robert Day of the Portland Police Bureau.
Matthew Duran and Katherine “KteeO” Olejnik were unexpectedly thrown back into solitary confinement at SeaTac FDC on December 27th, the day after Maddy Pfeiffer self-reported to the same prison. After Matt’s friends and family didn’t hear from him for a few days, his lawyer contacted him and found out that both he and KteeO were removed from the general population.
RICHLAND — A 29-year-old man hospitalized after being stunned with a Taser at the Benton County jail has died.
Kevin T. Culp of Spokane, who died Tuesday, was in the jail as a contract inmate for the state Department of Corrections. Benton County Coroner John Hansens said in a statement that an autopsy would be performed Wednesday.
Authorities say Culp had a medical condition and was housed in an isolation cell so jail nurses could watch him. Culp had an “unknown medical episode” Dec. 17, and authorities say he became combative, struggled with officers and bit them.
Maddy Pfeiffer was taken into custody today at FDC SeaTac. They self-reported at 9am with about a dozen friends to walk them in. Please write to Maddy. BUT KEEP IN MIND that Maddy can’t read cursive so please print or type your letter. Any support and encouragement is tremendously appreciated by Maddy and their loved ones.
How has King County managed to charge people for May Day vandalism while the Federal government has resorted to throwing people in prison but has yet to bring a single charge? Why is that? Why has the county, with its relatively paltry resources, been able to gather enough evidence to identify and charge five people with May Day vandalism, while the FBI/federal prosecutor/federal judge Richard Jones have sent four people into prison for refusing to testify (after granting them immunity from prosecution), but have yet to wrangle a single actual charge?
