Josh Harper of the SHAC 7
KBOO's Jenka Soderberg speaks with former political prisoner Josh Harper, who spent three years in prison with 'terrorism' charges for giving a speech in which he explained how to send faxes of black paper to try to waste toner.
Harper is one of the SHAC 7 -- 6 animal rights activists and the organization Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty USA (SHAC USA) who were convicted on March 2, 2006, under the controversial Federal Animal Enterprise Protection Act. The Act punishes anyone who "physically disrupts" an animal enterprise. The charges stem from these activists' alleged participation in an international campaign to close the notorious product testing lab Huntingdon Life Sciences.
