The FBI Knocked on My Door at Work Today–from Minnie Bruce Pratt

The FBI Knocked on My Door at Work Today--from Minnie Bruce Pratt:

ultramaricon:

(Click through title for Facebook note.)

At 10:30 a.m. today, 10/1/12, there was a knock on my closed office door at my job at the Writing Program at Syracuse University. When I opened the door, a man in a suit asked if he could come in and talk to me—without identifying himself in any way.

When I refused, he pulled out an ID/badge container, flipped that open, and flashed a Federal Bureau of Investigation card with shield. He claimed he wanted to question me about a “former student.”

I stated that I did not wish to speak to him, and closed the door. The movements in struggle over the decades have taught me not to speak to the FBI under any circumstance.

For more information about knowing your rights and what to do if the FBI knocks, see the Center for Constitutional Rights guide:

“If An Agent Knocks”    http://ccrjustice.org/ifanagentknocks

The FBI has targeted progressive activists over many, many decades, including Civil Rights activists such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; the lesbian grand jury resister Susan Saxe; and, more recently, anti-war and labor activists in Minneapolis. (http://www.stopfbi.net/)

I’ve also learned from the struggle over the decades that letting people know what’s happening helps us all be strong and prepared.

Feel free to share this information widely.

Does Theraflu even still exist? I couldn’t find it anywhere.

I am actually worried about this. Same with Excedrin migraine! Which I could mostly get along with so I didn’t have to take the $20 pills. And one of my prescription drugs was discontinued! PROBLEMS. Also as long as I am on this topic, I called my psychopharmacologist, who also works with my neurologist and my rheumatologist so I can go to one person for my refills, bec a lot of my pills are Schedule II and it is easier and cheaper to go to one person once a month than three people once a month, ANYWAY the receptionist was like, “She’s gone! You can see the new doctor.” And would say anything else. Like, wtf, what happened where did she go? I emailed her but she didn’t reply. I have been seeing this woman for years! Obviously I am investigating.

I was really sad and being sick scared me because remember when I was sick for two years and my life was ruined? But Emily brought me theraflu and a kombucha and I remembered I have friends who won’t let me die and be forgotten. (I can be maudlin, I’m sick and people have been meeeen to me.)

Someone posted a Supernatural reference in the Jane Eyre tag and then someone else posted a Lana Del Rey reference plus someone wrote that after reading the novel she was “balling” her eyes out and basically my life is complete.*

*Not mocking the error, it is just a beautiful image, balling one’s eyes.
