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.

The chairman of the VEREIN GEGEN TIERFABRIKEN (VGT) DDr. Martin Balluch, is now being artificially fed in the prison hospital wing of Wien Josefstadt. He has been on hunger strike as a result of the obvious arbitrary treatment of the national police ever since his imprisonment on the 21st of May 2008.

However, this method of feeding Martin is a temporary measure on behalf of the prison in order that Martin gets nourishment over the next two weeks.

DDr. Martin Balluch comments: "For 2 weeks now, I have been stationed in the hospital ward of the prison, since I am in hunger strike. This is the only opportunity available to me to protest against this unbearable unjust course of action of the state against me. I have already lost 21kg of bodyweight and am taking medication against stomach and muscle cramps. Since Saturday, the 14th of June, I am being nourished artificially through infusion.

Concrete accusations are still missing.

The VGT continues to protest against the incomprehensible approach of the authorities.

Not only are real evidence and accusations still missing, which would justify the imprisonment on remand, but the Public Prosecutors Office is still refusing to return even copies of the confiscated computers and other materials.
