Come out to Occupational Hazards to hear the amazing story of activist and convicted ‘terrorist’ Andy Stepanian.
Andy and his fellow activists as “succeeding where Karl Marx, the Baader-Meinhof gang and the Red Brigades failed.” Their actions drew the attention of Wall Street and the FBI resulting in a politically charged landmark free speech case called the SHAC 7 trial where Andy and 5 others were charged and convicted as terrorists for their activism. Sentenced to 3 years in federal prison Andy spent his last 6.5 months in a secretive federal prison program that NPR would later name ‘Guantanamo North’. Andy’s activism as part of the SHAC7 is the subject of a feature-length documentary due out in 2012 from Finngate Pictures.
Folks, this guy is FOR REAL and we are very lucky to have him, so make sure you make it out to this historical Hazards.
