Eric McDavid is Given Commissary Again; Trial Continues
Confidential Source/FBI Informant Anna Testifies Against Eric McDavid
On September 11th, supporters learned that Eric McDavid has been given commissary again. This is seen as "the first step towards a stable vegan diet for Eric." Supporters are asked to continue to call the jail to request that Eric be given vegan meals. Eric McDavid's trial will continue on Monday, September 17th at 9am. Supporters are asked to dress appropriately for court, and to not speak to the media about Eric.

During the court date on September 11th, US Attorney Steve Lapham asked questions of the government informant known as "Anna." The prosecution asked for an order that she be referred to as "Anna" through the trial and that her real name never be used. The defense did not object, and the order was granted. Anna was sworn in by her real name next to the judge so only he and the attorneys could hear her. Anna told her story of how she had come to work for the FBI, and how she had gotten involved in the anti-globalization movement. She also told her version of the time that she spent with Eric McDavid, Zach Jenson, and Lauren Weiner.
