A Discussion With Andy Stepanian of the SHAC 7


Activist & former SHAC 7 prisoner Andy Stepanian tells his personal story of standing up to one of the worlds largest contract animal testing labs, being charged with “terrorism” for his efforts, and serving 3 years in a federal prison. To learn more about the SHAC 7 please visit http://SHAC7.com/

What if you closed your eyes & woke up a prisoner? What if you were estranged from your family and labeled a convict? What if you lived your entire life in a cage? What if you were convicted and imprisoned for trying to set beings free from their cages? Our perspective is often one of privilege and it can sometimes be hard for us to see the world through an alternate lens. Andy Stepanian speaks about his personal experiences and observations of others while incarcerated, a collection of experiences that led him to determine that despite his shackled circumstances he had never been as free as he was during that time.
