Lawyers file FOIA request on behalf of ANSWER against FBI
On Monday, attorneys with the Partnership for Civil Justice and the National Lawyers Guild Mass Defense Committee filed a Freedom of Information Act Request (FOIA) with the FBI on behalf of the ANSWER Coalition (Act Now to Stop War & End Racism).

Richard Becker, of the ANSWER Coalition National Steering Committee, said “The exposure of FBI harassment of the antiwar movement should be viewed in the context of the larger government campaign targeting all who disagree with their policies, and the larger struggle against the Bush administration’s policies at home and abroad.
