“I plan on exercising every right that I have” to resist California grand jury, activist says [GreenIsTheNewRed.com]
An activist who has been subpoenaed to a grand jury in California investigating the animal rights movement says she will refuse to cooperate in any way, and that “using grand juries to harass activist communities does not serve justice, it is simply a means of political repression.”
Brittany Kenville is one of several activists who have been subpoenaed to the grand jury, which appears to be investigating a 2008 fire at the home of an animal experimenter at the University of California, Santa Cruz. In a statement Kenville noted that grand juries have historically used the pretense of a crime, such as the 2008 arson, as justification for threatening activists with jail time if they do not testify about their political beliefs and political associations.
