Please join Ariana and her supporters in their stand against this unjust grand jury.
Ariana and several other animal rights advocates were originally
subpoenaed to testify before a San Francisco federal grand jury
investigating animal- and eco-liberation activists in late May of 2005. After numerous hearings and motions, Ariana appeared before the grand jury in January 2006, asserting her Fifth Amendment right to remain silent. She was granted immunity, but still refused to talk. At the end of the day, she was dismissed from the grand jury pending further action, and was finally re-subpoenaed in June.
