The JBLM Force Protection Division - the same military organization that conducted attacks on political activists, ordered false arrests and detentions of individuals that opposed the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, and engaged in a systematic pattern of harassment of the families, homes, and friendships of Port Militarization Resistance supporters - has now set its sites on Antifa.
From documents obtained through FOIA and from information provided to us by friends at JBLM we see that the JBLM Force Protection Division continues to collect information about Constitutionally protected political activity. They have stated that Antifa creates violent confrontation and "fully fits the definition of a domestic terrorist organization". They have ordered personnel to report - directly to the Force Protection Office - any suspicious activities or information gathered about Antifa or individuals participating in Antifa activities. The say to gather information at events - photos, names, vehicle plate numbers - search social media for Antifa posts, and to remember that "nothing is too trivial to report". All information obtain will be shared with their "intelligence sharing partners" they say.
If you show up to support Antifa, to oppose Proud Boys and other Nazis in our community, to call for an end to ICE, or anyone of a 1000 other socially responsible political activities you could easily find yourself listed in a JBLM database of domestic terrorists.
This isn't new. They have done this for years https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2017/09/23/18803121.php and will continue to do this until there is a strong enough demand that this illegal activity be stopped. #OCCUPYJBLM
