Event: Panel on the Green Scare!

What is the green scare?

The green scare is a concerted effort by several government agencies to label as terrorists, and institute statutes aimed specifically at those who protest environmentally destructive corporations. The green scare has specifically targeted those who publicly support those movements. The green scare includes the SHAC7 defendants, those persecuted by Operation Backfire, and the recipients of disproportionate sentences like Jeffrey Free Luers. The Federal Government is attempting to indict a movement, come learn how.

Speakers:

Daniel Meyers, New York City Civil Rights Attorney

Lauren Regan, Founder and Executive Director of the Civil Liberties Defense Center in Eugene, Oregon

Andrew Erba, Attorney for one of the SHAC7 Defendants

Brendan Story, Friends and Family of Daniel McGowan


This event will educate and explain exactly what has been happening with these indictments, prosecutions, and law in the context of animal and environmental rights activist persecution.

The National Office of the National Lawyers Guild has established a hotline, 888-NLG-ECOLAW, for individuals arrested or subpoenaed for offenses related to environmental or animal activism. The hotline will be operational on June 26.
