OPERATION: 12 DAYS OF XMAS '07
DAY 4: Arm an Activist

Do you have an animal or earth liberation activist on
your Xmas list? Our enemies have almost limitless
resources at their disposal, while we are under
equipped and operate on shoestring budgets. It is
time to start arming our activists. Following, are
some gift suggestions for that special compassionate
friend or family member in your life. As in years
past, we have just modified our list of gift
suggestions to make the list more timely. As our
tactics and strategies change, so to must our wish
list.

For the aboveground activist in your life:

* Running Shoes - good quality, vegan and
preferably sweat-free
* Suits for court appearances
* Books for reading in prison
* Writing paper to correspond from prison
* Gift membership to the ACLU
* Referrals to pro bono attorneys
* Solarcaine or homeopathic equivalent for after
police beatings
* Vegan cookbooks for prison support pot luck
suppers and vegan bake sales
* Martial Arts Training Gift Certificates (be able
to defend yourself, very useful in prison)
* HSUS, Peta or Friends of Animals t-shirts for
plausible deniability
