The Null Device

In the US, a conservative group is petitioning the Internal Revenue Service to revoke an environmental group's non-profit status. Frontiers of Freedom, based in the CIA company town of Arlington, VA, claim that Rainforest Action Network is ineligible for nonprofit status because their members have been involved in criminal activities, namely anti-globalisation protests. The IRS prohibits groups whose members engage in criminal activity from holding nonprofit status, a rule aimed at activities such as embezzlement. Needless to say, activists of all stripes are alarmed at the prospect of a Bush-administration IRS siding with Frontiers of Freedom.
