Support the Rallies! Show your solidarity with the innocent remanded Animal Protectionists. The Authorities actions affect all of us. It's not just about animal rights, but about the fact that resistance is undesirable. The State wants to silence U2!

Solidarity Against Repression!

Support the Rallies! Show your solidarity with the innocent remanded Animal Protectionists. The Authorities actions affect all of us. It's not just about animal rights, but about the fact that resistance is undesirable. The State wants to silence inconvenient citizens.

As you may have read in recent local media accounts, Christine Abrams of Cocoa, Florida is being charged with misdemeanor cruelty to animals for allegedly starving her dog to death. According to local media, the Cocoa Police Department reports that on January 18, Abrams abandoned her 2-year old dog, Ella, in a locked crate—without any food or water—for two months. In March, neighbors reportedly began to smell something foul coming from the home and—upon peering in the window—saw the crate with Ella's body inside. They immediately called the police. Ella had clearly died a slow, painful death—reportedly with a closed bag of food, which she could easily see and smell, nearby.

Ella's accused abuser is scheduled to appear in court on June 17 at 9 a.m. Believe it or not, PETS is hoping to fill the courtroom with compassionate people who support vigorous prosecution in this disturbing case.

This hearing which is very important because either a plea deal will be offered or a trial date should be set. I will be attending this hearing to show my support for Prosecutor Raska—and for Ella.

Thank you for your compassion for animals and your willingness to act. You are truly a friend with noble cause!

WE ALL NEED TO REMEMBER THAT AT ANY TIME AT ANY MOMENT YOU CAN RUN AFOUL OF THE PEOPLE WITH THE $$$$ AND THE CONTROL FREAKS IN THE GOVERNMENT THAT ARE IN FEAR LEST THEIR CAREFULLY LAID OUT STATUS QUO GETS DISRUPTED. GOVERNMENTS ONLY FEEL SECURE WHEN NO ONE RAISES THEIR VOICES AND QUESTIONS OR MAKES DEMANDS. FIGHT FOR THESE PEOPLE THEY ARE OUR BRETHREN!!!! HERE IS THE REPLY I GOT TO MY LETTER....HOW MUCH OF IT DO YOU BELIEVE????
Dear Madam,

Dear Sir,



We are pleased to supply you with the following information:



On May 21, 2008, ten arrest and 23 house search warrants were executed in the provinces of Lower Austria, Salzburg, Styria, Tyrol and Vienna and four summonses were served by the police officers on authority of the Regional Court Wiener Neustadt. Therefore, the police officers did not take action of their own accord but on behalf of an independent court. Initial interrogations of the persons affected by these official acts were mostly carried out in the presence of their lawyers. The decision on continuation of detention that was ordered in ten cases rests exclusively with an independent judge rather than the Federal Ministry of the Interior.



The reason why the criminal prosecution authorities took action was that since autumn 2006 attacks and damage to facilities of the clothing, pharmaceutical and food industries as well as a major campaign of anonymous threats against managers and staff of companies of these economic sectors had become more and more frequent. These illegal acts caused a total damage of approx. two million Euro.



The measures taken by the police on behalf of the court and continuously coordinated with the judicial authorities were in no way directed against animal welfare or animal welfare organisations and in no way intend to criminalise the “animal welfare“ issue or its representatives but are exclusively aimed at individual, obviously militant and suspected criminal animal rights activists who got organised to commit criminal offences against persons and property and performed acts of self-justice.



Therefore, the concerns that the provisions of art. 278a Criminal Code are extended to comprise also socio-critical issues cannot be understood. In any event, an independent court will have to decide whether the matter in question meets the prerequisites for constituting this offence.



The Federal Ministry of the Interior hopes to have answered your question to your satisfaction.





Yours sincerely

Gerhard Pichler

Finally the media in Austria start bringing the news and asking questions with the help of this media attention and the EURO 2008 final in VIENNA it should be possible to get them out! If there is no evidence they are innocent!
If there is evidence that they did damage or intimidate they will be punished!
