Subject: NCIX WEB SITE UPDATE ADVISORY #24-2002
Dear Friends and Colleagues:
According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), a loose network
of antiwar groups is planning a "week of action against warmongering" to
occur December 15 - 21, 2002. Organizers, who have expressed strong
opposition to possible U.S. military action against Iraq, are advocating
"explicit and direct attack upon the war machine," and have called for
attacks on the headquarter facilities and other assets of oil companies
and defense contractors, singling out Boeing and Lockheed Martin.
Department of Defense (DoD) assets also represent potential targets for
attack. Organizers have referenced an October 14, 2002 incident in San
Jose, California, in which DoD recruiting offices were damaged and a DoD
recruiting van was set on fire. Activists may also target major media
companies by "sanitizing" newspaper vending machines, jamming or
hijacking radio and television signals, or attacking broadcast towers
and damaging equipment.
Potential victims should be alert to any suspicious activities that may
be associated with this week-long protest.
Information regarding potential threats should be reported to local law
enforcement and the nearest FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force.
