Animal Liberation

Wed Jan 4 2006 Solidarity Benefits Held in Support of SHAC 7
solidarity demo at courthouse In an apparent attempt to disrupt the activities of Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty and other direct action animal activists, seven animal activists now known as the SHAC 7 are set to be tried — with jury selection starting February 6th — in New Jersey for violating the Federal Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act. The Act punishes anyone who "physically disrupts" an animal enterprise. The charges stem from these activists' alleged participation in an international campaign to close the product testing vivisection labs of Huntingdon Life Sciences. They are alleged to have operated a website that reported on and expressed ideological support for protest activity against Huntingdon and its business affiliates. For this they are charged with "terrorism" and face an aggregate of 23 years in Federal Prison.
