Even if you're not talking to Al-Qaeda, the Bush Administration wants to know what you're saying.
PITTSBURGH - The American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of Pennsylvania will release conclusive evidence on Tuesday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is conducting investigations into peaceful and legal anti-war gatherings held by the Thomas Merton Center for Peace & Justice. Two documents to be released show for the first time that peaceful political activities are being targeted by the FBI solely because they express an anti-war sentiment.

In a national campaign to expose FBI spying the ACLU has filed Freedom of Information Act requests in 20 states on behalf of more than 150 organizations and individuals. As a result of these requests the government has released documents that reveal monitoring and infiltration by the FBI and local law enforcement, targeting political, environmental, anti-war and faith-based groups. More information is available online at www.aclu.org/spyfiles.
