CHARGE HARRASSMENT
Peace organizations sue FBI

PHILADELPHIA (P) - The
American Friends Service Com-
mittee t(AFSC), 18 individuals and
the Philadelphia Resistance, an
antiwar group, filed suit in U.S.
District Court yesterday seeking
to enjoin the FBI from alleged
political harrassment, intimida-
tion and surveillance.
The suit names Atty. Gen. John
Mitchell, FBI Director J. Edgar
Hoover and Special Agent Joe
Jamison, the head of the FBI in
Philadelphia, as defendants, in
their official capacities and indi-
vidually,
The complaint charges that the
FBI acted for the purpose of
"chilling and punishing the con-
stitutionally protected political
rights of the plaintiffs . . ."
The FBI had no comment.
An 18-page brief filed by the
group charges the FBI with il-
legal and unconstitutional physi-
cal violence; threats; excessive

a n d continuous surveillance;
searches, seizures, arrests and
limitations on freedom of move-
ment, electronic surveillance; in-
timidation of friends, neighbors,
relatives, employers and asso-
ciates; and denial of the right to
counsel.
According to the brief, the FBI
undertook the harrassment begin-
ning about April I, "allegedly in-
vestigating" the theft last March
of files from an FBI office in Me-
dia, Pa. Parts of those files have
been turned over to the news me-
'dia including the Daily.
One document reporting on an
FBI conference in Washington
said interviews with the New Left
"are in order for plenty of rea-
sons, chief of which are it will
enhance the paranoia endemic in
these circles and will further
serve to get the point across
there is an FBI agent behind
every mailbox."
