"That the Intelligence Unit monitor the October 4th meeting scheduled by 'Food Not Bombs".

San Francisco Police Captain Dick Holder


The "October 4th meeting" was in fact the regular monthly meeting of the Haight Ashbury Neighborhood Council held at the Page Street Library. Captain Holder had been presenting a report on the neighborhood at those meetings since he had been appointed Captain of Park Station. The attached publications were collected from our weekly meal at the entrance to Golden Gate Park. The police had made 94 arrests in August and September 1988 of people sharing food with Food Not Bombs at Haight and Stanyan Streets.

Food Not Bombs was planning to provide food at a protest at the Concord Navel Weapons Station in support of Brian Wilson and the other Veterans For Peace who were protesting the shipment of bombs to be used against the people of El Salvador. The protest was nonviolent. An informant obtained Keith's phone number at a meeting to plan the protest.

That Thanksgiving people started to contact Food Not Bombs to report that they had been approached by uniformed National Guards personnel at airports on their way home from the holiday. Those contacting Food Not Bombs would report that the soldiers would point to their Food Not Bombs button and explain that they had just attended a weekend course on domestic terrorism where Food Not Bombs was described as "one of America's most hardcore terrorist groups" and that the logo had been shown as part of the class. They also claimed that the sharing of free vegan meals was a front and that the leadership had other plans. Efforts to get documentation about the domestic terrorism class have so far not succeeded. Food Not Bombs was only active in three cities in November 1988.
