Where to begin....I feel Digger covered all the bases in regards to what the regular folks around CFA know about grand jury subpeonas. This is a more personal commentary and in no way should be construed as a statement given in behalf of CFA, nor is it a reflection on how this group of people feel collectively.
It's strange how this whole affair has seemed, in such a short period, to have erupted into such a storm of accusations, animosity and bitterness. I suppose it's an accurate commentary not only on the political climate in this so called "free" country, but one on the climate in this community as well. Please don't misunderstand me, I think the fear, anger and confusion is justified(somewhat), and I'm definitely not attempting to make light of it all. I just feel it's a goddam shame that this has all been so effective in pitting concerned, caring people against one another, even before anyone has testified(or not testified).
I'm not going to pretend I'm knowledgeable of the grand jury process, or it's function, or it's agenda. I can say this though with certainty, many of the folk who are involved regularly with CFA feel the same as Mr. Rosebraugh and others in regards to non-cooperation with grand juries and zero tolerance for the whole nation-state apparatus. I mean, why do you think we're all here doing what we do? For petty reforms and concessions? Shit, this ain't the fucking sierra club, ya know! I don't want this to be perceived as another "Can't we all just get along?" spiel, yet I believe we really need to get a grip and focus on who our real enemies are....and what they're trying to do to us as a resistance movement as a whole. DIVIDE AND CONQUER!!! Do people really believe that CFA folk aren't as much concerned about grand jury subpeonas as they are themselves?
I feel constructive criticism and guidance are sorely needed, but can't it be done in such a way that brings us closer together instead of tearing us further apart? Wheatpasting propaganda on the front door of the CFA office in the middle of the night seems to me not only counter productive, but highly suspect as well. Digger posted CFA's phone number; people evidentally know the address; try coming over when the sun's up next time. Maybe we can actually interact as humyn beings and prove we're not the mixed-up mob the mainstream media portrays us as, but a real threat to those in power....a true force to be reckoned with.
