In 2012-2013 seven people were raided, arrested and charged for conspiracy to commit SOCPA.
The 'SOCPA7' were facing a two month trial, however following discussions between the defence and prosecution, the defendants agreed to a plea deal at a court hearing on Friday 5th September. For more info about what & why visit: http://socpa7.org/plea_deal.html
Three info nights & fundraisers are taking place this week around the UK to raise awareness of the Socpa 7 & the criminalisation of the anti-vivisection movement:
