Your manager can't legally prevent you from speaking with human resources, and that's the first thing you should do. (You may have to -- or want to -- do it on your own time, perhaps during your lunch break.) File a grievance to get a paper trail started. If nothing happens and your manager's behavior continues, you may want to contact your local U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) office. The EEOC also can help you if you are discriminated against for filing a complaint.

With no clarification of why you are being ordered to cease the activity, it is hoped you are going to personnel for answers you cannot get from the group leader or manager. If you go over someone's head, there should be good cause. The employer cannot tell you where to go at lunch or your break time as you are not being paid during those times. Keep that in mind and limit the time you do visit. You have caused friction. You may need to stop your activity for at least three weeks till tension subsides
