Oakland Activists Accused of Freeing Animals Are Charged as Terrorists

The year 2013 was a busy one for animal liberation actions across the U.S., primarily at businesses that breed and/or sell fur. Tyler Lang and Kevin Johnson of Los Angeles recently pled guilty and currently await sentencing for a related charge of violating the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA). On July 24, the FBI arrested two more animal rights activists related to the string of 2013 actions. Joseph Buddenburg and Nicole Kissane of Oakland were charged under AETA for 2013 actions. A call-out for support for Joseph and Nicole has gone out for their court appearance on July 28 at the Oakland Federal Courthouse.
