Whole Foods Market in Jamaica Plain.

Gazette: Documents Show Cops Monitored Whole Foods Protests

The Jamaica Plain Gazette reports that newly-released documents detail how the Boston Regional Intelligence Center kept tabs on Occupy JP meetings, protests against Whole Foods moving to Hyde Square and even a vigil for one local activist's son. One JP resident who was a target of the surveillance, Robin Jacks, said the revelation made her feel a lot less safe, knowing that perfectly legal civic meetings were being watched while officials missed actual dangers like the Tsarnaev brothers. I'm quoted extensively in this piece about BRIC's monitoring of #OccupyBoston. http://t.co/xKymW6oT4M @onekade @fara1— Robin (@caulkthewagon) June 3, 2014
