Say NO to the Police State
2004-07-19, 6:16 p.m.

Join us in Boston to say NO to the Police State
The People will not be silenced!

The Police State has come to Boston.

In an attempt to intimidate protest and silence dissent, the Boston Police, in cooperation with the Department of Homeland Security, is imposing unprecedented police state measures:

**City Bus Drivers were given mandatory "anti-terror" training. They were shown films to help them identify "terrorists." The people shown in the film were not terrorists--they were ANSWER activists. Bus Drivers have been ordered not to allow anyone on the bus carrying political signs. Peaceful protest has now been officially designated as "terrorism" by the government.

**More than 75 high tech cameras hav been placed throughout the city, with instant links to "monitoring stations." From these stations, Federal Agents can zoom in on facial characteristics and license plates. The surveillance of political activity without probable cause, which has been determined to be illegal and unconstitutional, is designed to intimidate and harass protestors.

**The Boston Police has announced pland for the round-up, mass arrest, and detention of political dissenters during the DNC.

We must take a stand against the Police State in Boston.
