On Friday, March 13, 2009, Then 21-year old Jordan Halliday was taken into federal custody for refusing to cooperate with a federal grand jury investigating the animal rights community of Utah. He was held for nearly four months. On June 29th, 2009, Halliday was released from custody and federally indicted with felony “criminal contempt of court” for the same act of recalcitrance.

In May 2005, then FBI Deputy Assistant Director for Counterterrorism, John Lewis, told a Senate panel that ecoterrorism is “one of today’s most serious domestic terrorism threats,” the 2001 USA Patriot Act creating the crime of “domestic terrorism,” broadening the definition to apply to US citizens as well as aliens – henceforth, the Bureau dividing the crime into two categories, international and domestic, the latter changing dramatically in the past decade.

After her sentence, a “collective gasp went up from (her) supporters, who packed the broad, high-ceilinged courtroom….followed by a few shrieks and sobs; some held their hands over their mouths.”

Before I joined CALM Action, I helped coordinate a protest against the Shrine Circus. We wanted to show people that animals used in circuses were confined, physically and mentally abused, and murdered for cheap entertainment. So we made our signs, advertised the protest, and on the day of the circus, yelled and chanted outside the circus doors.
