2) An American activist, Jonathan Philip Robert, indicted last year on
charges of making a bomb threat to a hotel hosting the G8 meeting at Sea
Island, GA, USA, was arrested on the 20th of November 2005. He is facing
serious federal charges under the indictment, although at this stage it is
not clear what those charges are (but one would imagine making a bomb threat
might be in there somewhere!).

As far as ELP is aware Jonathan does not have a support network and he is in
need of funds for writing letters and other supplies. His case has received
very little attention in the activist/prisoner support community, therefore
please help raise general awareness about Jonathan's case and also send
urgent letters of support to:

Jonathan Philip Robert
Muscogee Country Jail, Dorm 437
700 10th St
Columbus GA 31901
USA

Darren Thurston arrested & Bill Rodgers prison address
(12th December 2005)

Dear friends

ELP has two lots of news for you today:

1) Canadian activist, Darren Thurston, arrested in America
2) We now have Bill Rodgers address

1) ELP has just learnt that former Canadian ALF prisoner, Darren Thurston,
was arrested on Wednesday, in America. The following news item was spotted
on portland.indymedia about Darren.

Former ALF prisoner Darren Thurston was arrested last Wednesday and is
currently being held in an INS detention center in Tacoma. His extradition
is based on his conviction for raiding a Lab in 1992. He was also
subpoenaed to the Eugene grand jury for Feb. 16th, 2006.
No word yet on how a subpoena can be served or enforced upon a Canadian
citizen, but these are awfully strange times we are living in. Darren has
been told, as most of the other recipients of the recent subpoenas, that he
is a target of the investigation.

Darren can be written to at:

Darren Thurston
A#072156581
1623 East J Street, Suite 5
Tacoma, Washington 98421, USA

ELP encourages everyone to write to Darren. He is a well known, dedicated,
activist who deserves all the support we can give him.

2) Also, as everyone knows, last week six American were arrested in raids
across the United States accused of a series of ELF & ALF actions. ELP is
eternally grateful to everyone who is sending us information about these
raids/arrests and we can now confirm the address of another defendant Bill
Rodgers. Please send urgent letters of support to:

William Rodgers
Coconino County Jail
951 E Sawmill Rd
Flagstaff, AZ 86001, USA

ELP now has the addresses of five of the six defendants. However we are
still seeking the prison address of Stanislas Gregory Meyerhoff. If anyone
knows his where abouts please do get in contact with ELP urgently.

Thank you.
