Organizer/Author
Jeffrey Luers was originally sentenced to 22 years and 8 months for the burning of three SUV's in Eugene, Oregon to make a statement about global warming. Despite the fact that this action hurt no one, Jeff was sent to prison for a sentence clearly determined by the political nature of the incident.

While in prison Jeff has remained dedicated to the environmental movement and continues to contribute with his writings, even acting as the keynote speaker at the 2005 Environmental Law Conference in Eugene, Oregon -via phone.

In 2007 Jeff won his appeal and his sentence was reduced to 10 years. He is scheduled to be released this December.

This is the final SF benefit for Jeff to raise funds to help him as he transitions back to life on the outside. Please save the date and come show your support!

Bands:

VV5: SF's own, post-punk instrumental, featuring: guitars, 12-string, banjo, accordian, slide whistle, bass, percussion, and organ/piano.

Acquitted: Three bad-asses making it work the hard way; guitars, crooning harmonies, a mean keyboard, and sometimes- a theremin.
