Contempt Hearing for Naida Winstead, Friday, November 17

Naida Winstead is scheduled for a contempt hearing on Friday, November 17
at 11am. There will be a demonstration in support of her resistance to the
grand jury preceding the hearing, details to be announced in a few days.

WHEN: Friday, November 17th, Demonstration: TBA, Hearing: 11am
WHERE: In front of the San Francisco Federal Building, 450 Golden Gate
(between Polk and Larkin)

Please join Nadia and her supporters in their stand against this unjust
grand jury.

Background:
Nadia and several other animal rights advocates were originally subpoenaed
to testify before a San Francisco federal grand jury investigating animal-
and eco-liberation activists in late May of 2005. After numerous hearings
and motions, Nadia appeared before the grand jury in August 2006,
asserting her Fifth Amendment right to remain silent. She was granted
immunity, but still refused to talk. At the end of the day, she was
dismissed from the grand jury pending further action. In September, at a
preliminary contempt hearing, Nadia filed a motion for disclosure of
illegal electronic surveillance. The motion was denied.
