Seattle, WA

Summary:

Using FOIA and state disclosure laws, a freelance journalist discovered that lawful, peaceful protests of U.S. Navy submarines near the Seattle waterfront had been monitored by government agents (of the Federal Bureau of Investigation).

Notes:

The FOIA requests went to the Coast Guard, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Department of Defense (specifically, two entities within the Navy). Because the Coast Guard later became part of the new Department of Homeland Security, this entry flags DHS as an involved agency.
