Grand Jury Resister Jordan Halliday Releases Song “I’ll Miss You”

Animal rights activist Jordan Halliday was recently sentenced to 10 months in prison for his refusal to testify in a grand jury convened to investigate the release of mink from Utah fur farms by the Animal Liberation Front. Halliday refused to cooperate because grand juries have repeatedly been used by the government as a tool for fishing expeditions, forcing activists to testify about their political beliefs and political associations.

Grand juries have historically been used against social movements (and are also being used against antiwar activists in the Midwest). They’re a tool to harass and intimidate activists, and foster fear and distrust among activist communities.
