This is an interview with the FBI informant "Anna" from the April issue of Elle magazine.
The article is unsurprisingly slanted against the activists and is heavy on the terrorism rhetoric.
"Anna" was paid $75,000 to fabricate a crime and implicate 3 environmental activists. Eric McDavid is one of the 3 who has remained strong in the face of government repression and is fighting the case.
Eric McDavid was arrested in Auburn, CA on January 13, 2006 as part of the government’s ongoing Green Scare campaign. He now faces two decades in prison. Eric has been held in solitary confinement at the Sacramento County Main Jail since the day of his arrest. He was arrested along with Zachary Jenson and Lauren Weiner and all three were charged with “conspiracy to destroy property by means of fire or explosives.” The government’s case is based on the word of a single FBI informant who was paid over $75,000 to fabricate a crime and implicate the trio. Both of Eric’s co-defendants have since caved under the threat of being imprisoned for 20 years and plead guilty to a lesser charge. In doing so, they also agreed to testify against Eric and cooperate in every way possible, including testifying in front of secret grand jury proceedings. Eric has been repeatedly denied bail.
For over a year, he has only been allowed to leave his cell for a few hours per week and receives very little contact with the outside world. He needs your support now more than ever, as his trial date is quickly approaching.
