Twin City Crackdown on Terrorist Sandwiches

As Heidi Boghosian writes in Punishing Protest, this kind of repressive, pre-emptive police action against activists who have committed no crimes has become increasingly common. But –come on! — Food Not Bombs?!? I guess we should never underestimate the subversive potential of the free vegan sandwich!

Protesters here in Minneapolis have been targeted by a series of highly intimidating, sweeping police raids across the city, involving teams of 25-30 officers in riot gear, with semi-automatic weapons drawn, entering homes of those suspected of planning protests, handcuffing and forcing them to lay on the floor, while law enforcement officers searched the homes, seizing computers, journals, and political pamphlets. Last night, members of the St. Paul police department and the Ramsey County sheriff’s department handcuffed, photographed and detained dozens of people meeting at a public venue to plan a demonstration, charging them with no crime other than “fire code violations,” and early this morning, the Sheriff’s department sent teams of officers into at least four Minneapolis area homes where suspected protesters were staying.

    This country is becoming ever-more absurd. Before we know it we will be living within George Orwell’s 1984.
