Grand Jury Resistors Head Into Court, Expect Jail
From Portland comrades: Supporters will be gathering today in front of the Federal Court House in Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington to express opposition to the secret grand jury investigating the anarchist movement, and to show their support for those refusing to testify.
This will be the third time Leah-Lynne Plante has been called before the grand jury. Each time, she has publicly refused to cooperate. She is expected to be imprisoned after today’s hearing.
“So far as I can see, the authorities are just using these hearings to intimidate people, create suspicion, and collect information that they can use to disrupt political movements,” said Leah-Lynne Plante, of Portland. “It isn’t working. None of the subpoenaed activists have testified, and the support we’ve received from the broader community has been really overwhelming.”
