ACLU Asks State Whether It Monitored Activists

Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA — The American Civil Liberties Union is asking the state to reveal whether it secretly gathered information on California activists and fed it to the federal government.

Three California affiliates of the ACLU filed a request with state Attorney, General Bill Lockyer, yesterday asking for information on whether officials provided information to the FBI about several environmental and anti-war activist groups.

The ACLU said it is looking for any evidence that state and local agents conducted surveillance that could be illegal under California law.
