11 Indicted in Latest Round of FBI Environmental Witch Hunt
Mon Jan 23 2006
Indictments in Environment and Animal Liberation Cases Include Recent Arrestees
On Friday, January 20th, the Justice Department announced that 11 individuals were being charged in a 65 count indictment handed down by a Eugene, Oregon grand jury. The indictment charged the individuals with a series of arsons, sabotage and vandalism that were claimed by the Earth Liberation Front and the Animal Liberation Front, between 1996 and 2001. The FBI has called these actions terrorism. The indictment includes further charges against some recent arrestees.

The government says that this alleged cell, which supposedly called itself "the family," was involved in more than 15 incidents across five states, included arsons or attempted arsons at U.S. Forest Service Ranger Stations, animal holding facilities, lumber companies and timber farms, the Vail Ski Resort, and the Eugene, Oregon Police Department.
