STOP TRUMPINTELPRO NOW!


HOW LOCAL LAWS CAN DEFEND OUR FREEDOM

FROM TRUMP'S ATTACK ON LIBERTY

SCROLL DOWN

STOP TRUMPINTELPRO NOW!


HOW LOCAL LAWS CAN DEFEND OUR FREEDOM

FROM TRUMP'S ATTACK ON LIBERTY

 

BUT WAIT... WHAT'S TRUMPINTELPRO MEAN?

TRUMPINTELPRO (Trump’s Intelligence Program) is named after COINTELPRO, the FBI’s covert and profoundly illegal Counter Intelligence Program. This program was used in the United States during the 1960s to disrupt and destroy the Black liberation movement, the anti-Vietnam War movement, and the American Indian Movement.

Donald Trump is implementing Putin's KGB tactics; he seeks to fulfill promises of unlawfully using FBI resources by creating a Muslim registry, deporting millions of innocent undocumented people, and disrupting constitutionally protected activism. We chose the name "TRUMPINTELPRO" because we’re prepared to make him own his carnage, and this legacy, by placing it all in his name.

ALL RESISTANCE IS LOCAL


ALL RESISTANCE IS LOCAL


 

Put a stop to the TRUMPINTELPRO agenda in your community! This guide is designed to help you fight for an ordinance that would legally require cops to obey city laws, and NOT Trump's FBI.

No one is safe from this current transition into tyranny. We are in a state of crisis. Sanctuary —our most sacred, fundamental, American principle— is under serious attack by Donald J. Trump.

Many cities across the country have sanctuary laws that protect immigrant community members, religious minorities, and protesters. These laws are designed to protect local police officers from doing dirty work for ICE and the FBI. The current administration is attacking these cities. Donald has already signed an executive order that holds the power to strip billions in federal funds from sanctuary cities across the country. This maneuver threatens millions of innocent families and could also strip millions of dollars in federal grants from your police department. We are ALL at risk. As Americans in this moment, we must unite and rally in allegiance to the laws that Trump is so determined to ignore.

Through collective action, we can choose to create our own walls... walls of protection... walls that Donald Trump can neither infiltrate nor demolish. Let us, The People, build and defend sanctuaries that protect ALL communities from Trump and the violent, white supremacist, woman-hating, anti-immigrant, LGBTQIA-bashing, Islamophobic, racist system that he represents.

 

FBI JOINT TERRORISM TASK FORCE LOCATIONS


FBI JOINT TERRORISM TASK FORCE LOCATIONS


IMPORTANT NOTE

Each FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) location identified on this map only indicates the city where the JTTF is physically located. Each FBI JTTF includes other federal agencies (such as ICE) and officers assigned by a variety of state and local law enforcement agencies from around the region or state.  

This map shows where the 119 JTTF and JTTF annex offices are located. If a JTTF is located in your city, it is very likely that your city's police department is participating in this FBI program. It's also likely that some other local police and sheriffs departments are participating in the same FBI JTTF as well. There are more than 500 state and local law enforcement agencies that assign officers to one of these JTTFs. The FBI has not released a comprehensive list of all the state and local agencies participating in a JTTF.

This map was created with data from the Washington Post's excellent 2010 series "Top Secret America".

DEMAND A LOCAL ORDINANCE


LOCAL LAW CAN STOP

TRUMP'S IMMORAL AGENDA

DEMAND A LOCAL ORDINANCE


LOCAL LAW CAN STOP

TRUMP'S IMMORAL AGENDA

BACKGROUND

The FBI can spy on us, putting informants in our places of worship and harassing us at home or work, even if they have zero evidence that we have done something wrong. In fact, they can do this even if they KNOW that we have done nothing wrong. And, yes, they are doing this to people all across the country.

Our local police officers are a part of something called The Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF). JTTF is a partnership between your community police department and the local FBI office. Trump's plans for religious and race-based profiling depend deeply on this partnership.

The FBI could never violate us on their strength alone; they lack the necessary manpower and adequate knowledge of our individual communities. This is why they recruit our local police officers as FBI instruments to do their bidding... the very same city cops whose salaries are paid by our taxes... the people who allegedly committed to protect and serve us.

Here's the real shady part: The FBI usually won’t allow officers to tell their supervisors what they are working on. Therefore, there is no real way to locally track what the officers are doing or to make sure that they are not violating state or city law.

All across the country, we have seen that the JTTF is behind much of the FBI's unchecked harm to American residents.


OUR COPS, OUR TERMS

A pretty bleak picture is being painted here, BUT there is something we can do right now to FIGHT BACK against TRUMPINTELPRO ...and we don’t need to go to D.C. or the federal level to do it. Right here, in our own cities… We can take back control of our local police and prevent them from committing Trump's crimes.

Let’s make sure that anytime our local police work with the FBI, it is on our terms. Let’s make sure that our voices are heard by demanding officers follow the laws that we have established.

Protect our officers! Give them something clear to point to if and when the FBI asks that they violate a state or local law. It is the officer's duty to follow said laws; however, in all likelihood, the FBI doesn’t know or care about enforcing them. Still, officers that aren't compliant with local or state law could face lawsuits.

Requiring that police adhere foremost to our local law actually benefits the community and the police.


STOPPING TRUMPINTELPRO FROM THE BOTTOM UP

Trump's promises have been so foul that many cities have publicly vowed to resist his regime. Many places also have sanctuary city ordinances which protect immigrant community members.

We can build on that momentum to resist a hate-driven government agenda. We can stop Trump from the bottom up. Let’s make sure that our local tax dollars and our local resources don’t go towards TRUMPINTELPRO.


SAN FRANCISCO'S SUCCESS STORY

Back in 2012, a coalition of 79 organizations created a San Francisco law that challenged the FBI’s use of their local resources. This law was successfully passed and its model can be replicated in your city.

The brilliance of the Safe San Francisco Civil Rights Ordinance was its simplicity. It is a two-page law, and its key provision asserted that the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) was allowed to participate in the JTTF, but ONLY in a way that is completely consistent with the laws of the State of California, the laws and policies of San Francisco, and SFPD’s policies, procedures, and orders.

If a JTTF mission breaks one of those laws, then SFPD officers are not allowed to complete that task.

On February 1, 2017, the San Francisco Police Department announced —effective immediately— they are suspending participation in the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force! The Trump administration has promised to use the JTTF collaboration for the unabashed violation of basic, civil liberties across the nation. In light of these threats, Police Chief William Scott responded, "When that confidence is shaken we have to slow down for a minute and make sure that the public sees us as an organization that they can trust." This is a HUGE victory!

Your city's police department may not yet have civilian protection as strong as San Francisco's, which is why we must organize to create change. We have to move now!
