--------------------

The State of Minnesota alleges that organizing a convergence
space for protesters to have meetings, eat free meals, and
check teh interwebs (on computers that an FBI informant
helpfully set up!) makes the RNC 8 guilty of conspiracy. The
Federal government claims that Scott DeMuth's writings and
associations suggest that he is an anarchist and therefore a
domestic terrorist, making him guilty of conspiracy under
the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act.

We say organizing resistance to state repression isn't
conspiracy. It's survival. We say living our lives according
to our principles isn't terrorism. It's our right. We say
we'll continue organizing no matter how much the state tries
to destroy us and our communities.

So if this is conspiracy, we say to you...Join the
Conspiracy!

This summer, the Conspiracy Tour is going on a whirlwind,
month-long excursion across the continental United States to
raise awareness of and solidarity for political activists
from Minneapolis, MN who are facing severe state repression.
Come join us in raising political support and much-needed
legal defense funds for the RNC 8 and Scott DeMuth.

It's been alleged that the Tour will include a musical
puppet show, a scintillating presentation on the charges the
activists are facing, and various (some would say nefarious)
ways you can join the Conspiracy to support targets of state
repression. In addition to the usual perks of joining a
conspiracy, co-conspirators will be learning ways to
strengthen and protect their communities from future
incidences of state repression. You know, just in case.

Come find solidarity, strategizing, resistance, and
community that the state could only dream of! This will be a
roadshow to remember even before you read about it in your
FBI file.

About the RNC 8
The RNC 8--Max Specktor (who will be speaking on the West
Coast stops of the tour), Erik Oseland, Eryn Trimmer, Garret
Fitzgerald, Luce Guillen-Givins, Monica Bicking, Nathanael
Secor, and Rob Czernik--were preemptively arrested in a
series of raids by heavily armed SWAT teams and other
targeted arrests on the weekend before the Republican
National Convention in 2008. The criminal complaints are
based on the allegations of confidential reliable informants
and an undercover Ramsey County Sheriff's deputy, who
infiltrated the RNC Welcoming Committee and conducted
surveillance on the activists for about a year. Ramsey
County Attorney Susan Gaertner initially slapped them with
"terrorism" enhancements in the first known use of
Minnesota's version of the PATRIOT Act. After a successful
pressure campaign against Gaertner's gubernatorial bid, she
dismissed the terrorism enhancement charges. The 8 still
face felony charges of conspiracy to commit riot in the 2nd
degree and conspiracy to commit criminal damage to property
in the 1st degree. Their joint trial will begin on October
25, 2010 and could last up to two months. More info at
<http://rnc8.org>.

About Scott DeMuth
In November 2009, Scott DeMuth and Carrie Feldman were
subpoenaed to a federal grand jury in Iowa investigating a
2004 Animal Liberation Front raid at the University of Iowa.
Though they had no information about the incident, they both
refused to cooperate with the grand jury on principle and
were jailed for civil contempt. Carrie was held for four
months before being released, and will be speaking about her
experience on this tour. Two days after being jailed, Scott
was indicted for conspiracy under the Animal Enterprise
Terrorism Act. He has been released with conditions pending
trial and has been re-indicted twice in response to his
attorneys' motions to dismiss. In March 2010, the Utah house
of well-known animal rights activist and former political
prisoner Peter Young was raided on a federal search warrant
from Iowa. The raid happened only days before Carrie's
release and lists Scott and others by name. More info at
