Sean has not been aggressive or violent, neither has he harassed or intimidated anyone. He hasn`t committed criminal damage, wrote threatening letters or used illegal direct action of any kind. Perhaps more importantly in a conspiracy case, he hasn`t encouraged anyone to do any of these things. On Friday 30th May, he will be sentenced at Coventry Crown Court for doing nothing more than campaigning peacefully to stop animal testing at Sequani laboratory. For this despicable crime, he could go to prison for upto 5 years!! Remember, the judge is a game shooter - he gets pleasure from blasting birds out of the sky. No doubt he will also get pleasure from hammering someone who strongly opposes his sick, bloody `pastime`.
Please support Sean in court. Let`s fill the public gallery with compassionate friends. Show Sean that we stand in solidarity with him and that the war against animal abuse continues in his absence.
