Local Activist Resists Fishing Expedition by Government
On August 17th, Nadia Winstead reported, "Today I appeared before the federal grand jury. Before going in the grand jury room I was granted immunity. I respectfully declined to answer all questions asked of me. After 30 minutes of questioning I was excused and able to go home. My lawyer and I aren't sure what will happen next, but I will send out updates as the situation unfolds. I thank you all for your continued support and dedication to resisting grand juries."

This federal grand jury is the second to be convened in San Francisco, ostensibly to investigate the “possible concealment” of Daniel Andreas San Diego. Winstead appeared before the previous grand jury. Andreas San Diego is a suspect in a series of actions from 2003 that were aimed at local pharmaceutical companies with ties to Huntingdon Life Sciences, an animal-testing lab that is the target of an international animal rights campaign. While Andreas San Diego may be the nominal target of the grand jury, activists see this as yet another excuse for the government to harass and intimidate their movements as part of the “Green Scare,” with the goal of silencing dissent, rather than stopping "terrorism."
