Mon Jan 30 2006 Support Still Needed for Other Two Defendants
2/1 Update: Zachary Jenson is in need of funds to pay attorney's fees. Sacramento Prisoner Support is encouraging people to organize benefits.
Recent eco-defense arrestee Lauren Weiner was granted bail on January 26th, but as of January 28th she was still in jail waiting for paperwork to be completed. She will be confined to the counties in New York where she lives and works, her attorney's office in Florida, and the federal court in Sacramento. Codefendants Zachary Jenson and Eric McDavid were denied bail. Eric McDavid's attorney plans to appeal this decision, and has also been trying to get fair treatment such as showers, meals he can eat, and exercise.

The "CS" (confidential source or "confidential snitch") in this case has been identified by her former friends and acquaintances as a young woman named Anna. Her actions are described in legal documents relating to this case. Read more from Portland Indymedia.

Support needed: Zachary Jenson and Eric McDavid follow vegetarian and vegan diets, respectively, but need phone calls to the jail to demand that they be given food that they can eat. They also want better treatment in terms of access to showers and exercise. They would both like to receive letters and books.
