SWEDISH ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS JAILED

In the early hours of the 8th of March 3 young men were chased from the 
Skyberga mink farm outside of Kumla, Sweden. 

Today there was a court hearing for the 3. Before the court hearing, we 
(the Support campaign) were going to have a 30 people strong demo 
outside of the mink farm where they were arrested. Our bus was stopped 2 
km from the farm where we were ordered out and frisked. Anyway, we went 
to the farm and had a short and good demo... And the farmer that took 
pictures of us got his camera in his face along with some punches from a 
female activist. After that we went to the court.

At the hearing it was decided that the accused were going to remain in 
custody. 

The 3 people charged are; David Zachridsson (20), Kristofer Aberg (19) 
and Henrik Seger (17). They are all 3 being charged with criminal 
damage, trespassing and conspiracy to commit arson. They are (so far!) 
being charged with that on the following animal farms:

1) Skyberga mink farm (230 minks released)
2) Ardala mink farm (700 minks released)
3) Hagshult mink farm (600 minks released)
4) Ugglekarr mink farm (650 minks released)

In the car used by the accused the police have stated that they found a 
map with one of the farm marked out with in pencil. In the car they also 
found petrol cans. 

We all managed to get into Kristofers hearing and he was so glad to see 
us there and when we were asked to leave we all just stood up and 
applauded. It made Kristofer so happy to see all his friends and 
supporters from all over Sweden there in the middle of nowhere.

Then Henrik arrived outside and we managed to get the message across to 
him as well and when he was in the police car he joined us in yelling 
slogans. It was just so great. They accused seem to be in very good 
moods. However, according to another person in the SC, David has 
admitted to the so-called crimes while Kristofer denies all charges and 
we are not sure about Henriks position.

What we do know is that the state wants harsh sentences....

Anyone in the UK or anywhere else that has ideas what to do in the  
campaign to help the remaining prisoners receive animal cruelty-free 
toiletries let us know. All three are being denied these as well as 
decent vegan food. This is the first time the new Swedish animal rights 
movement has prisoners and we need HELP!

The next court hearing will be March 25,1998 at 13.30.

Please do write letters and cards of support to the accused and they 
would appreciate anarchist/animal rights/liberation magazines:
