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.
