Subject: Another website raided

Hi Declan, I didn't see any coverage on politechbot.com of the website 
that was raided and shutdown by the FBI & LA Antiterrorism taskforce on 
Jan. 24, raisethefist.com.  Raisethefist.com hosted information and 
discussion on the topics of anarchism and class war.  The search warrant 
was based on charges of "computer fraud and abuse" and "distribution of 
information related to explosives, destructive devices, and/or weapons of 
mass destruction."
