Short Description: 
Know your rights! Listen to find out about grand juries and political harassment.

Ani and Lyn talk with Lauren Regan, the founder and executive director of the Civil Liberties Defense Center (CLDC), where she also serves as the staff attorney.

Political repression is on the rise.  Several homes have been raided in Portland, Olympia, and Seattle as part of a grand jury investigation, and the warrants served listed anarchist literature as something they were looking for.  Infiltrators and provocateurs have been used to target, disrupt and entrap activists.  These actions can have a chilling effect on activists and our communities.  

Knowing your rights is critically important.  What do you need to know to protect yourself?

Listen to find out more about the grand jury system.  What do grand juries do, and how do they do it? How have grand juries been used against social movements in the past? 

Your questions are welcome during program at 503-231-8187.
