HLS caught on camera abusing primates - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fg-uetBwGho

Now for the seventh time in ten years Huntingdon Life Sciences have been infiltrated and exposed again. Shocking cruelty and footage of experiments have been filmed inside HLS during 2007 and 2008; and primates caputred in the wild were shipped over by plane to France and then road to HLS, enduring 30 hour journeys in small cages from Vietnam.

Animal Defenders International have exposed the primate trade across three continents, including an undercover worker inside a primate unit at HLS during 2007 and 2008.

In light of recent police attacks on anti-HLS protests in places like DC, The strategic importance of this issue must be considered.

The campaign to shut down HLS has become a "meeting engagement"-a battle neither side can afford to lose. Here is what the pro-vivisection "Foundation for Biomedical Research"(or FBR) had to say in their 2006 "illegal incidents report" about the importance of the campaign to close Huntingdon "Life" Sciences(HLS):

"Beyond the issue of research and the debate surrounding animal rights, there is a larger and more

Eric McDavid's case continues to progress. Many see McDavid as a political prisoner from the recent Green Scare wave of government repression against radical environmental activists. The hearing on the motion for a new trial has been changed to January 24th, and sentencing has been moved to February 21st.

Sacramento Prisoner Support is encouraging supporters to write to Eric, and to also write to Judge England in care of Eric's attorney, encouraging him to give Eric the lowest possible sentence. The US Attorney is still indicating that they will be pushing for the maximum sentence of 20 years. Those who are writing letters are informing Judge England that the acts charged in the indictment are out of character for Eric. They also hope to compare Eric's case to other "terrorist" incidents.

For more information, link to the original Indybay.org article, as well as a recent Earth First! Journal article.

In a new interview with Uprising Radio (KPFK Los Angeles), Ramona Africa gives an update on The MOVE organization's efforts challenging The Guinness World Records 2008 book's labeling of the May 13, 1985 police bombing of MOVE's home (resulting in the deaths of 6 adults and 5 children), as a "mass suicide." Ramona explains that Guinness now says that the section on MOVE will be deleted from the next printing. MOVE wants Guinness to go further and make a public statement that they were wrong about both the "mass suicide," and the description of MOVE as a "cult."

The debut issue of Two-One-Five Magazine, features a new essay on May 13, by Hans Bennett, which spotlights a new interview with journalist Linn Washington, Jr. (then working for The Daily News), who witnessed MOVE member Jerry Africa (not inside 6221 Osage) attempting to negotiate with Mayor Goode during the afternoon of the May 13 standoff, before the bomb was dropped. He wanted to tell Goode that MOVE would disengage from the confrontation if Goode would agree to an investigation of the Aug. 8, 1978-related MOVE convictions. Jerry Africa was supported by civil rights activist Randolph Means and former Common Pleas Court Judge Robert Williams. The three of them repeatedly tried to call Goode on the telephone, but he would not take their call. Washington immediately called the story into The Daily News, but it was never published. Read the full essay (pgs. 80-85) online.

On December 7, 2005, The F.B.I. and local law
enforcement began a round up, of alleged environmental
and animal rights activists. This attack was not just
on radical environmentalists this attack was on the
entire environmental movement and American people.
Like the Red Scare in the 40's, 20's, and turn of the
20th century the radical left was attacked in the same
way which lead to an over all weakening of the
progressive movement.
