Attack of the Pacifists

Noted Pacifist Mahatma Ghandi

Your federal government, using their new anti-terrorism powers to spy on....pacifists.

WaPo: FBI Took Photos of Antiwar Activists in 2002

An FBI agent in Pittsburgh photographed members of an antiwar activist group in 2002, according to documents released yesterday by the American Civil Liberties Union, which said the disclosure marks the latest incident in which the FBI has monitored left-leaning groups.

An FBI report from November 2002 indicates that an agent photographed members of the Thomas Merton Center as they handed out leaflets opposing the impending war in Iraq. The report called the group a "left-wing organization advocating, among many political causes, pacifism."
