Three more ELF arrests in Sacramento: Support Information

This is an announcement from Sacramento Prisoner Support about the three recent arrestees...

Three people were arrested on Friday, January 13, 2006 in Auburn, California and accused of being an ELF cell and plotting to blow up cellphone towers, power plants and US Forest Service facilities. We were finally allowed in to visit the 3 prisoners Eric McDavid, Zachary Jensen and Lauren Weiner. They have all requested prisoner support. They would all like to receive letters and books. When writing DO NOT discuss their cases at all. Use their proper names and do not discuss politics.

Right now none of them have been allowed to speak to attorneys. At this time please refrain from organizing any activities on their behalf other than letter writing. Mailing instructions are below. Please follow them carefully or the prisoners will not receive what you send them.

Lauren is vegan and severely lactose intolerant and needs nutritious vegan meals. She would like people to call or write the jail and request that she be given nutritious vegan meals and be given access to the commissary. She is currently in isolation and has only been allowed to leave her cell for our visits.

For questions about support for the 3 prisoners please contact sacprisonersupport@riseup.net
