Title

"Stop the Grand Jury!!!!"

Subject

Legal Reform Movement

Description

This pamphlet criticizes expanded grand jury powers and the way they are used against political activists. In part it argues:

"THE INTERNAL SECURITY DIVISION OF THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE OF THE UNITED STATES FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS NOW TRYING TO LAY DOWN A WIDE FOUNDATION FOR INDICTMENT AND PROSECUTION OF MANY INTER-RELATED POLITICAL 'CRIMES' AND CONSPIRACY CHARGES. IT IS CREATING A WHOLE NEW PATTERN OF REPRESSION, INTIMIDATION AND FEAR. THIS PATTERN CAN BE USED SELECTIVELY FOR THE TIME BEING BUT IT OFFERS VERY SWEEPING POLICE STATE POWERS FOR THE GOVERNMENT'S FUTURE USE."
