American activist Tom Burke talks about intimidation and harassment tactics by the FBI directed at him, his family, and other peace activists and other activists. The presentation was part of a panel discussion on "Resisting Profiling, Preemptive Prosecution and Prisoner Abuse, A citizens hearing to confront repression of human rights and civil liberties by the criminal justice system." The event was July 16, 2011 in Detroit, Michigan (USA).

The panel presentation focused on how the 'War on Terror' climate and its repressive legal practices in the criminal justice system have affected civil liberties and human rights of Arab, Muslim, African American, South Asian, and all immigrant communities and the broader social justice movement.

“This war should have been stopped long ago, but we can’t undo history. “ said Robert Moore, the executive director of Coalition for Peace. “We can let the government know that it needs to stop now.”
During the vigil Moore said “$120 billion a year is being spent each year on 100,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan. This is taking money away from job creation and other urgent needs here at home.”
“We want to keep the soldiers in people’s minds,” Deckhart said. “The ultimate support of our troops is bringing them back home for good.”
