SHAC and the Grand Jury Witch Hunt

Grand juries: The best way to prosecute ... when you don't have a case.

So a Federal Grand Jury has sprung up in New Jersey and anti-Constitutional zealots are jumping for joy. Hoping to crack down on activists practicing their right to dissent over issues of animal cruelty the FBI has convened a grand jury, one of their favorite tools in their war on freedom.
Banned in other countries with real democracies for several hundred years - today's grand jury is nothing more than a political witch-hunt. Draconian rules state that if you do not cooperate and give any information asked of you, even if it is just speculation or an opinion - you can be thrown in jail for up to 18 months (or until you cooperate). Additionally you do not have the right to an attorney and no one can ever know what was said and done in this secret forum.

The FBI has used and abused the grand jury system for decades cracking down on those who oppose the war, segregation, women's rights, gay rights, and even those who oppose FBI misconduct and grand juries. This tool of oppression is not a new introduction to the animal rights movement and grand juries can be and have been successfully exposed, mocked, and defeated. Many activists have gone through grand juries and have come out of them better and more dedicated activists.

Armed with knowledge, solidarity, and strength of conviction we can and will ruin the FBI's silly little games.

SHAC have successfully infiltrated Eli Lilly. A SHAC activist gained employment at the lab and worked there for some time on a series of experiments that are as cruel as they are scientifically invalid. Our insider revealed that 36 thousand animals PER YEAR are being killed at Eli Lilly's site at Windlesham in Surrey for cocaine experiments.

Funny how all these companies always claim to be doing life-saving research into human diseases and here, yet again, we see that the truth is very different. If you are a customer of HLS, beware - do not ever underestimate the lengths SHAC will go to in order to persuade you to sever your lengths with HLS. There is no excuse for any involvement whatsoever with a laboratory where cruelty is endemic and workers have been caught falsifying data and dealing drugs on site - maybe Eli Lilly should do these tests on some HLS workers instead.

When SHAC phoned Eli Lilly this morning and spoke to their Corporate Press Department, they were still unaware that they had been stung! All the press woman could say was: "Err... errr... .what is the SHAC website address? ... err... . We have no comment to make at present." Yeah, we bet you don't!

To voice your disgust at Eli Lilly's abuse of thousands of animals and at their involvement with HLS, call them on: 01256 315 353
