Conspiracy to Riot in Furtherance of Terrorism is the collective autobiography
of several members of the RNC 8. Charged with felony conspiracy and violations of the Minnesota Patriot Act for organizing logistics for protests against the 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul, authors reveal their upbringings, early political involvements, the “RNC Welcoming Committee,” infiltration, arrests, legal defense
and outcomes of the case.
Authored by RNC 8 defendants, Luce GuillénGivins, Max Specktor, Eryn Trimmer, Monica Bicking, Robert Czernik and Garrett Fitzgerald, and edited and introduced by Leslie James Pickering, the book offers lessons and a glimpse into the contemporary reality of dissent in America.
The book is available at:
Proceeds will be donated to the Committee to Stop FBI Repression (CSFR).
CSFR is a group formed to support activists currently
being targeted by the FBI—through grand jury subpoenas, house raids, and looming indictments—for their antiwar and international solidarity work.

Under the guise of fighting terrorism, the Patriot Act was adopted WITHOUT public approval or vote just weeks at 9/11. These unconstitutional laws should be abolished seeing as they violate human rights and due process not to mention the mere 3 criminal charges a year attributed to this act. The laws are simply means to spy on our own citizens and to detain and torture dissidents without trial or a right to council. You can read much more about living in this Orwellian society of fear and see my artist’s response to these measures on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/09/living-in-society-of-fear-ten-years.html
