HELP SUPPORT DANIEL MCGOWAN!

-----------------------------
Daniel McGowan is an environmental and social justice activist, unjustly arrested and charged in federal court on multiple counts of arson, property destruction, and conspiracy, relating to two incidents that occurred in Oregon in 2001. Daniel asserts his innocence by pleading not guilty to all charges. He is facing a minimum of life in prison if convicted.

Daniel is from New York, and has been an active member of the community, working on diverse projects such as the demonstrations against the Republican National Convention, Really Really Free Markets, and supporting political prisoners such as Jeff "Free" Luers and others. Daniel is a graduate student earning a Master's degree in acupuncture and is working at Women's Law, a nonprofit group that helps women in domestic abuse situations navigate the legal system, which is where he was arrested by federal marshals on December 7th, 2005.

Daniel had originally been indicted separately, but his arrest comes in the context of a well-coordinated, multi-state sweep of numerous activists by the federal government, which has charged the individuals with practically every earth and animal liberation case left unsolved. Many of the charges, including Daniel's, are for cases whose statute of limitations were about to expire.

In order to help Daniel, his family and friends have created a support network (Family and Friends of Daniel McGowan) to help fund Daniels legal representation, as well as to raise awareness about his case and make sure that he is emotionally supported throughout this process.

Daniel was released on bail on January 25th, and is coming back to NYC. Despite his being on house arrest, his friends and family are thrilled that they can once again be with him and that he is not in jail. However, he still needs tons of support!

Please come celebrate his release and show your support for him. Donations are kindly accepted at the door and inside the show for his legal defense costs.
