This was posted then censored at Indylies along with 9 other posts critical of SHAC - SHACWATCH will always step in and right oppresive censorship - particularly when it's about SHAC
Lots of attempts to talk this up with posts to the usual websites (Indylies etc) saying, "not to bad", "could have been worse" etc etc. The real state of affairs is of course very different.
At least three of them expected to walk away yesterday under 'time served' so going back to jail was a shock.
The total jail time for the bigger fish was longer than anticipated and this last round of court time has pretty much bought SHAC to an end as an AR campaign group.
The important work in AR is now being done by others who have distanced themselves from SHAC recognising that real results are achieved through politics not by getting middle aged women with hormonal problems, pre op transexuals and the more extreme parts of the feminist movement ("all men are rapists") to stand outside buildings and shout through megaphones.
SHAC is finaly near death and SHACWatch has played a part in that killing, the important work of animal welfare can now be concentrated on.
