SHAC newsletter 52
The last three months have been devastating for Huntingdon, as their financial longevity starts to crumble. After a sustained campaign against Barclays for their position as HLS’ top institutional shareholder, they sold all of their shares, leaving Huntingdon once again below the minimum listing standards of the NYSE ARCA exchange.

Olympia/Tacoma May Day "Fantasic Four" Update (Fucking Support Them) (USA)

20-08-2009 10:09

Most of the four have already started their sentences, so let's fucking support them. Regardless of what you think of their actions, they are members of our community and we must support them. They are targets of the state, but most importantly they are ours. Jail can be horribly alienating so please take five minutes to help lessen the load and remind them that we are thinking of them. Oh, and course, letters/phone calls to elected officials stating your displeasure with this ridiculous witch hunt are always appreciated!
