THE THIRD CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS HAS ISSUED ITS DECISION IN THE SHAC CASE--READ MORE HERE.
THE SHAC7 CONVICTION: A BLOW TO FREE SPEECH AND COMPASSIONATE ACTIVISM
The SHAC7 are 6 activists and a corporation, Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty USA Inc., that have been found guilty of multiple federal felonies for their alleged role in simply campaigning to close down the notorious animal testing lab, Huntingdon Life Sciences. Five of the individuals are currently in federal prison (the sixth, Darius Fullmer, has been released, after completing his one year sentence). They are not accused of actually smashing windows, liberating animals or even attending demonstrations, rather reporting on and encouraging others to engage in legal demonstrations and supporting the ideology of direct action.
After being found guilty, they are beginning their appeal. Unfortunately this appeal will be done from prison. During their stay they need your support! Finances, spreading the word about their case, books, letters or just a friendly 'hello'! It just takes a few minutes to brighten the lives of political prisoners!
