Gary of Sacramento Prisoner Support talks about the cases of Eric McDavid, Zachary Jensen and Lauren Weiner. The three were arrested while visiting a Kmart in Auburn CA with police informant â
This interview was conducted, recorded and produced on Free Radio Olympia on 1/31/06 by DJ questionmark in true DIY style.
Eric McDavid, Zachary Jenson and Lauren Weiner were arrested on Friday in Auburn, California and accused of "conspiring to damage or destroy by explosive or fire" cell phone towers, power plants and US Forest Service facilities. They are accused of being members of an Earth Liberation Front cell and are currently being held in the Sacramento County Main Jail.

We have been in contact with all three prisoners and they have all requested prisoner support, including: receiving letters, books and assistance in obtaining legal counsel. When writing to the prisoners, please do not discuss their cases at all. Any mail addressed improperly will not be delivered. Use their proper names and refrain from discussing issues related to their charges. Remember, all mail is opened and read by the government and can be used in court. Mailing instructions are below. Please follow them carefully or the prisoners will not receive what you send them. When sending literature please keep in mind the nature of the charges against them and do not send anything which could potentially be damaging to their case.

Eric would like books about new physics, philosophy, alternative health and yoga. Zachary would like non-fiction accounts of traveling and is also interested in personal 'zines [ we do not know if 'zines will get into the jail; for the best results have them sent through a publisher such as AK Press ]. Lauren would like books about prison issues and is interested in historical political prisoners.

We are asking that everyone wait until the prisoners and their lawyers have had an opportunity to develop defense strategies before organizing any activities on their behalf other than letter writing.

Lauren is severely lactose intolerant has requested nutritious vegan meals. She says she has not been able to get enough vegan protein. She would like people to call or write the jail and request that she be given nutritious vegan meals and be given access to the commissary, which she has so far been denied. She is currently in isolation and has only been allowed to leave her cell for visits and court. Zachary is vegetarian and would like people to call and/or write the jail and request that he be given vegetarian meals.

Please politely contact the Jail to request that they receive access to the commissary and meals that accomodate their diets:

Initial Court Appearance Reportback:

The three defendants were read their charges, which (as of now) consist of a charge of conspiracy to damage or destroy public and private infrastructure by explosives or fire. This charge carries a sentence of 5-20 years in prison. The charges will be more clear when the indictment (a rubber stamp from a grand jury for the government to prosecute the case) is delivered and the charges become official. The criminal complaint was made available today; it indicates that the case is primarily based upon the testimony of a confidential informant who was paid by the FBI and 'embedded' within the alleged ELF cell. According to the criminal complaint this person has been an informant in 12 other 'anarchist cases' and has agreed to testify in open court.

Detention hearings have been set for Friday, Jan 20th for Lauren, and Tuesday, January 24th for both Eric and Zachary. These hearings will determine whether or not they will be eligible for bail. The US Attorney who is prosecuting the case, Ellen Endrizzi, did her best to demonize the three and create the illusion that if bailed out they would flee and put the public at risk. Lauren, Zachary and Eric are facing serious charges, but the rapid and caring response of their families and concerned supporters as well as their tenacious assertion of their rights are helping to give their cases a promising start.
