Bounty Hunters and Child Predators- Inside the FBI Entrapment Strategy is a new pamphlet from the Crimethinc Collective to help folks in the anarchist scene learn more about how the FBI targets and how we can keep ourselves, and each other safe.

This new publication is partially in response to the recent arrest of 5 anarchists in Ohio for allegedly plotting to blow up a bridge. The new FBI tactics are an extension of the Green Scare, and this pamphlet starts to talk about how we can resist being scared.

You can download a copy from the Crimethinc website  ( http://www.crimethinc.com/blog/2012/05/29/inside-the-fbi-entrapment-strategy/ ), or come by the Wingnut Anarchist Collective during Open Hours on Wednesdays and Fridays from 4-9pm to pick up a copy of your own. 2005 Barton Avenue.

The Wingnut Anarchist Collective will be hosting a movie screening next Saturday, November 19th at 7pm as a benefit for Eric Scott’s legal fund.

We will be screening PickAxe a 94 minute film by Crimethinc.

If you enjoyed our screening of If a Tree Falls last month, you should enjoy Pickaxe, which is a longer piece about the occupation of a national park by environmental activists, which was mentioned in If a Tree Falls.

An eclectic mix of activists take a stand to protect an old growth forest from logging at Warner Creek in the Willamette National Forest of Oregon, blockading the logging road and repelling the State Police. Over months a community builds around the illegal blockade as it develops into the Cascadia Free State and similar actions spread across the region. Years after its release, Pickaxe has become a classic document of the potential for grassroots direct action to achieve victory against the forces of both government and big business. Lovingly crafted by the participants themselves, the film expertly presents every moment, from confrontation to celebration. Includes new commentary track by filmmakers Tim Lewis and Tim Ream. [94 min.]

We are asking for people to bring a 3 dollar donation if they can, but no one will be turned away. Please come out to watch this film, learn about Eric’s case and other recent legal cases of Richmond Anarchists, and to maybe decompress a little too.

Eric Scott is one of the 2 people being charged with a felony for wearing a mask during last Wednesday’s Occupy Richmond march.
