Eric McDavid is an anarchist and environmental activist who was entrapped by an FBI informant and charged with a single count of “conspiracy to use fire or explosives to damage corporate and government
property”. In May of 2008 Eric was sentenced to an outrageous 19 years and 7 months in prison.
On January 8th, 2015, after serving 9 years in prison his judgment and sentencing were vacated when it became known that the FBI had failed to
disclose potentially exculpatory evidence to the defense. Eric plead guilty to a lesser charge that carried a 5 year maximum sentence and was
released almost immediately.
This incredible victory occurred because we all refused to give up the struggle to set him free. Thank you to all of you who have supported Eric during these last 9 years.
Despite the heavy-handed repression of the state, Eric refused to compromise his politics or his integrity, just as all of us who supported him refused to abandon the struggle to
see him free. But the struggle is not over. Though Eric is no longer held in a prison cell he is faced with the difficult task of rebuilding
his life after a lengthy period of incarceration. We are hoping to aid him by raising money so that he can go to school, get a job and begin
the process of physical and emotional healing from his time in prison. Below is a list of Eric’s estimated expenses for the next 6 months. Your
donations are critical to helping Eric get back on his feet. Thank you for your continued solidarity with Eric in his struggle to survive and
thrive in the face of injustice.
Yoga Teacher training - $2100
An hour of therapy or groceries for one week – $75
Books for class for one semester at the college he is already enrolled
