Florida Atlantic University canceled because the assembled list
of speakers appeared "too dangerous." The Orlando, FL, police
department viewed a conference flier and then convinced FAU officials
that the issues being presented at the conference are of an illegal and
criminal nature.

I WANT TO KNOW HOW THE PIGS "CONVINCED" THE FAU THAT ISSUES WERE ILLEGAL
AND CRIMINAL.  WHY DID THE FAU ACT COWARDLY?

    People were being pulled over and
    illegally searched

    the FBI was doing field reports, also accusing groups
    like AIM of being known cop killers and claiming that they had
weapons.


WE NEED TO KNOW IF THESE THINGS REALLY HAPPENED.  I SUSPECT THEY DID.
IF SO, WHAT IS THE ACLU DOING ABOUT IT?

So it's not entirely clear why the authorities stuck their boot heels in
all our necks, but it is clear that once again, as activists and
radicals, we have had our democratic rights infringed upon. What are we
    going to do about this?

    I will keep this list posted as more information comes to light.

PLEASE DO.  I WANT TO KNOW IF THE ACLU REFUSED TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

For the whole damn pie,
