FBI Witch Hunt

Last week was banned books week, and when I asked our local librarian about the colorful display of banned books with a poster of a librarian in a Che beret, she laughed, and said that was their idea of a hero.

Yesterday, Leah-Lynn Plante was sentenced to prison for refusing to answer questions before a grand jury in Seattle about books she and her anarchist friends read. As part of an FBI witch hunt against environmentalists who espouse a philosophy that we might be better off without government, Plante's incarceration in a federal detention center kind of proves their point.

Rather than listening to me, though, readers should read and listen to Leah-Lynn herself explain her principled stand. For those who wish to support her and other young people abused by the U.S. Department of Justice, links are included in this article.
