Jailed activist needs support!
by no compromise
Friday Mar 25th, 2005 1:56 PM

Jailed activist Peter Young needs your support NOW!

Peter has been able to make a couple of calls out, and received his first visitor today BUT he has now been told that he had forfeited "all his rights" and his phone privileges have been revoked because he refused to take a non-vegan TB test. As a result he is now being held in high security isolation - unable to make phone calls or trade for food. Since being jailed the only thing Peter has been given that he can actually eat is a small amount of lettuce. Peter desperately needs our help so that he can remain in touch with his supporters and start getting food he can eat.

PLEASE CALL THE JAIL NOW!

(408) 299-8770

POLITELY point out that Peter is an ethical vegan and
* should be allowed to make phone calls to his supporters
* can be given an alternate form of TB test (a chest x-ray)
* should be given vegetarian/vegan food

****************
CASE BACKGROUND:
****************

Peter Young was arrested on March 21st in San Jose, CA. He has been "WANTED" since 1998 after being indicted on charges of violating the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act by releasing mink from a Wisconsin fur farm.

A support website is being setup and will be online soon
(SupportPeter.com) with more background on the case, and additional information on how we can all help Peter. In the meantime please send Peter a letter so he knows he's not alone. Until his phone privileges are restored letters and visits will be his only contact with the outside world.
