Don't let government abuse of activists go unnoticed! Join activists June 9th to speak out against the indictments of Bay Area activists on
outrageous federal charges and defend dissent! If the war on protest continues, we could all be terrorists!

When: June 9th, 9:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m.
Where: Oakland Federal Courthouse
Why: Free speech is under attack.
Three Bay Area activists are being charged with Animal Enterprise Terrorism simply for speaking out for animals inside laboratories. Whether or not you are an animal rights activist, this is an important case for all who care about civil liberties. If the government can get away with charging animal advocates with terrorism, WHO's NEXT? More Information: WarOnActivism@yahoo.com

History: On May 26th, three Bay Area activists associated with the Campaign to Close Huntingdon Life Sciences were arrested by the FBI and are among 7 across the country being charged with violating the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, simply for exercising their First Amendment rights! This demonstration is important to anyone who cares about civil liberties!! Signs and leaflets will be provided.
