Latest update and statement from Kansas Mutual Aid Legal Collective 7/26/04 3:30pm Central
In the last few days anarchists and dissidents in the Midwestern states
of Colorado, Missouri, and Kansas have come under pressure from the
Federal Bureau of Investigation and local agencies.
Anarchists in Kansas City, Lawrence, Topeka, Kirksville, Columbia,
Denver, and St. Louis have been contacted directly, or through
relatives, co-workers, neighbors, and friends by various branch offices
of the FBI and asked questions about the Democratic and Republican
National Conventions, as well as the Presidential Debates, and the
Elections.

For the past several days, we here at KMA have gotten constant phone
calls from anarchists across the Midwest informing us of various levels
of intimidation, harrassment, and questioning.

Today several anarchists in the region were served with a federal grand
jury subpoena. During a grand jury, defendents don't have access to a
lawyer while inside the courtroom. Defendents can invoke the 5th
Ammendment but must answer all other questions. The Grand Jury has
historically been used to divide and terrorize dissidents. For more
information of the Grand Jury's historically repressive role: Tikkun.org
- The Grand Jury: The Modern Inquisition

If there is anyone who knows a lawyer that can practice federal law who
would give advice, please contact KMA at the email address below.

Now there is an urgent need for for legal defense funds. We are asking
anyone able to give anything to please do so.

The state has raised the stakes to stiffle dissent. In the coming weeks
we will most likely put the call out for rallies, actions, and other
public displays of support.

Although the pressure has increased, we will not back down. More than
any other time, our work is necessary. More than any other time, we need
your support. This isn't a joke.
