Letter from Brasscheck TV

Click for more global actions one person can take
Dear Pip,

An amazing story on so many levels...

An 18 year old activist created a web site and added a link to another site that contained info about b0mb-making that had already appeared in a widely sold mass market paperback [Abbie Hoffman's 'Steal This Book' - PW].

The FBI raided his family's home and he was accused of a violation of the Patriot Act and faced TWENTY years in prison...for putting a link (an anchor tag) on his web site.

He plead guilty to a lesser charge and was sentenced to a year and a half in prison...for putting a link on his web site.

Where was the ACLU? Where was the EFF (Electronic Freedom Foundation)?

Then when he got out of jail, the FBI set up surveillence of his home.

What he did in response is my favorite part of the story.

I love this guy.
