Third Anarchist Jailed for Refusing to Testify Before Secret Grand Jury

Third Anarchist Jailed for Refusing to Testify Before Secret Grand Jury

October 12, 2012

A third self-described anarchist from the Pacific Northwest has been jailed by federal officials for refusing to speak before a secretive grand jury that the accused have called a politically-motivated modern-day witch-hunt.

Leah-Lynn Plante, a mid-20s activist from Seattle, Washington, was ushered out of court by authorities on Wednesday after refusing for a third time to answer questions forced on her by a grand jury — a panel of prosecutors convened to determine if an indictment can be issued for a federal crime.

Plante was one of a handful of people targeted in a series of raids administered by the FBI and the Joint Terrorism Task Force on July 25 of this year which the feds say were in conjunction with an investigation into acts of vandalism that occurred during May Day protests in Seattle nearly two months prior. As part of their probe, search warrants were issued at multiple residences of activists in the area, including Plante’s, demanding that dwellers provide agents with “anti-government or anarchist literature” in their homes and any flags, flag-making material, cell phones, hard drives, address books, and black clothing.

PORTLAND, Ore. – It’s a story that should be seriously troubling Americans, yet has been widely ignored by the mainstream media.

Thursday morning, 24-year-old Portland activist Leah-Lynn Plante was taken into custody and could remain incarcerated in a U.S. federal prison for 18 months. What exactly has she done to deserve this? The answer is nothing. She has not been charged with a crime.

This kitten-loving, bike-riding, chammomile tea-drinking vegan is being held and treated as an enemy of the state. Why? We’re still not quite sure.
