Congress Must Investigate the FBI!
Defending Rights & Dissent launched a groundbreaking new report chronicling the FBI’s (most) recent surveillance of social movements, Still Spying on Dissent: The Enduring Problem of FBI First Amendment Abuse.
Over the past decade, we’ve witnessed a number of dynamic social movements--Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, anti-pipeline and environmental protests, immigrants rights, and peace and solidarity movements. As documented in our report, time after time we’ve seen the FBI monitor, surveil, and infiltrate these movements.
This report is a meticulously documented accounting of what we know about FBI political surveillance. But we only know what we do because of FOIA, leaks, activists coming forward, and intrepid investigative reporting, because That knowledge comes from public revelations. Unfortunately, the FBI is very good at hiding things from the public. Our report not only documents FBI surveillance, but FBI obfuscation. That’s why it is well past time for Congress to shine light on exactly what’s taking place at the J. Edgar Hoover Building.
