Support the Activists Arrested in Chicago

On June 16th, ten activists on the HLS Shut Them Down tour were arrested in Chicago. Two were minors and were not charged, while the other eight are facing three misdemeanor charges each, and one is facing one felony charge. Two activists’ cars were impounded and searched, and police are holding property for investigation. The case will bring several activists from out of state back to Chicago for court up to six or seven times, and as legal fees are already piling up, we are seeking support from the community.

Defendants:
Justin (Portland/Chicago)
Tamara (Portland/Chicago)
Rob (Chicago)
Liz (Chicago)
Hannah (Washington DC)
Lauren (New Jersey)
Dave (Long Island)
Andy (Boston)

“When a man’s love of finery clouds his moral judgment, that is vanity. When he lets a demanding palate make his moral choices, that is gluttony. When he ascribes the divine will to his own whims, that is pride. And when he gets angry at being reminded of animal suffering that his own daily choices might help avoid, that is moral cowardice.” -Matthew Scully
