Dear friends

Today three well known British animal rights activists, Natasha Avery, Heather Nicholson and Daniel Wadham were convicted of carrying out public disorder offence against a fox hunting family and where sentenced to imprisonment.


Greg and Natasha Avery

As ELP understands the case, the three where, on the day in question, innocently walking along a road, minding their own business when they noticed a car displaying pro-hunt stickers. Outraged by such a blatent incitement to illegal activity (fox hunting is illegal in Britain) the three decided to express their views on the subject. The family inside the car phoned the police.

Sadly the police did not uphold the law and arrest the people who advocated the illegal killing of foxes for their own perverse blood lusts, but instead decided to arrest the three animal rights activists under two separate public order offences.

ELP feels strongly that the prosecution against these three was highly politically motivated and designed to stop these three individuals from their lawful campaigning activities (it is well known that all three are involved with the international SHAC campaign). And sadly the sentences confirm our suspicions.

Heather and Nat were sentenced to 16 months imprisonment. Dan was sentenced to 12 months.

Please send urgent letters of support to:
