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
