On August 10, 2018, the US Department of Justice announced that it had “apprehended" Green Scare defendant Joseph Dibee after indicting him 12 years ago. Dibee was allegedly arrested in Cuba.
CLDC is thrilled to announce that Eric McDavid, Environmental Activist, has been released from custody. Welcome home Eric!
The Green Scare is the federal government's ongoing prosecution of environmental and animal rights activists. It includes the government, corporations, and politicians labeling activists as "ecoterrorists" and national security threats and giving them to long prison sentences.
Activists need to know how to protect themselves. Here you will find a list of helpful materials surrounding Grand Juries. Please contact us if there is something more that you would like to see on this page.
The Civil Liberties Center is working to fight against the Green Scare, the governments unconstitutional attack on environmental and animal rights activists, by conducting research, participating in public outreach and education, and assisting with the legal defense of non-cooperating defendants. We are also providing attorney referrals for various individuals and have assisted their attorneys with various legal issues.
