FBI, Univ. California, Alameda Sheriffs Sued for Illegal Search of Social Justice Groups

Last August 27, law enforcement agents raided the offices of two social justice groups in Berkeley.

One group is called the Long Haul Infoshop, which describes itself as a community resource center and serves as a library and a bookstore. The other is the East Bay Prisoner Support Group, which is located in the same building.

Though the landlord refused them entry, FBI agents, the University of California police, and Alameda County sheriffs forced their way in. They broke locks on the outside doors, and even on inside doors, as well as on filing cabinets.
