Week of Resistance 
March 30-April 5 
Bloomington, IN

A Call To Action!

The Bloomington Defense Committee and Buffalo Trace Earth First! are calling for a Week of Resistance to the states ongoing campaign against public dissent. The week will include forums, protests and workshops. Local campaigns will be highlighted, including the effort
to stop the construction of the international highway, I-69. This event is being held in response to the recent arrest of Frank Ambrose, charged with tree-spiking (a class D felony). Ambroses arrest is just another tragic miscarriage of justice in the FBIs current
witchhunt against activists everywhere. Across the country, in many movements for social and ecological justice, activists are being harassed.  Bogus charges, intimidation and cointelpro tactics are being used to threaten the future of all movements for change in this
country. It is time to rein them in and take a stand against state repression.  Please come and join us in showing the FBI that we will never be frightened into submission and inactio!
 n. This will be a week that Bloomington will not easily forget.
