HERE'S WHAT TO SAY ON THE CALL


CALL SCRIPT FOR ACTION STEP #1

I demand to know if any of our city cops are participating in a Joint Terrorism Task Force. Are they?

Are OUR police officers, paid for by OUR taxes, participating in the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force during Trump’s presidency?

I need a clear answer.

Trump has made promises for racist and religious profiling, such as:

  • creating a Muslim registry
  • massive deportations
  • implementing "stop-and-frisk"
  • and crushing political dissent

But he can only accomplish most parts of this fascist agenda through the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF), a partnership between local police departments and the local FBI office.

I NEED to know whether our police department is working in partnership with the JTTF or not. OUR cops need to obey OUR city laws, not Trump's FBI. Otherwise we are all at greater risk to be violated!

 

If they don't know...

Tell them to visit this site -- trumpintelpro.com -- and use this guide to inform them why it's now urgent, in the Trump era, for them to find out.

If they refuse to tell you, point out that this information is not treated as a secret in other cities.

Ask them:

"Why are you hiding information whether or not local tax dollars are being spent to assign local police officers to work for Donald Trump's FBI JTTF?


CALL SCRIPT FOR ACTION STEP #2

Our police department is working in an FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, which gives the FBI complete control over what our police officers do and how they do it.

This means OUR police officers, being paid for by OUR taxes, are working for the Trump administration, not US and not OUR community.

It’s time to take back control of our local police to prevent them from doing Trump's dirty work.

I demand you to re-assert local control over our police officers working with Trump's FBI JTTF and enact an ordinance like the Safe San Francisco City Ordinance.

You can read a copy of the ordinance here:  http://www.trumpintelpro.com/law

It is a brilliant, simple, two-page law, and its key provision asserts that the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) is 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 task breaks one of those laws, then SFPD officers are not allowed to do that task.

We must model this ordinance in our city!

Let’s make sure that anytime our local police work with the FBI, it is on OUR terms.

Let’s make sure it is clear that OUR officers have to follow OUR locally established laws.

This protects our officers, giving them something clear to point to if and when the FBI asks that they violate a state or local law.

It’s critical that ALL people in this city feel safe and fully protected. Because we’re ALL Americans, not the cartoonish enemies that Trump paints us as.

We're counting on you to take a stand for us and STOP TRUMPINTELPRO.

Remember, what happens to us, happens to you, too. We will rise or fall together.

Thank you!
