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 in
– $100
Car insurance for a month – $40
Computer – $250
Cell phone bill for one month – $40
