Oppose the criminalization of dissent!
The term “Green Scare” refers to the federal government’s expanding prosecution efforts against animal liberation and ecological activists, which is strikingly similar to the "Red Scare" of the 1950s. Recent sweeping legislation such as the Patriot Act and Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act redefine “terrorism” so broadly that anyone who advocates for social change can be criminalized for thinking, speaking or acting in a manner that threatens corporate profits and the rule of law. Activists are facing potential multiple life sentences for crimes against property, crimes that have harmed no-one. Others (the SHAC 7) have been sentenced to years in prison for simply running a website and speaking in support of direct action. Look out, everyone is a potential terrorist.
This event is part of the International Days of Solidarity with Green Scare Indictees, Detainees, and Political Prisoners.
