The Press Office received word last week that local activists are still being visited by federal agents in the greater Los Angeles and Orange County Area inquiring about “illegal activity” and underground actions in Southern California. Agents are even resorting to desperate measures and visiting activists’ parents.
If you are an activist in the Southern California area, be prepared and expect a similar visit. Alert your family and friends; let them know they are not obligated to speak with authorities or answer any of their questions and most importantly, that the Feds are not their friends. Anything they say other than “Please Leave” will likely result in more visits. For more information of how to prepare yourself and your family for such a visit please read and refer to NAALPO’s informative essay “Nobody Talks, Everybody Walks”.
