is a local (Sacramento-based) political prisoner, currently serving a
20 year sentence in federal prison for “thought crime.” He was arrested
in January 2006 (as part of the government's ongoing "Green Scare"
campaign against environmental and animal rights activists) after being
targeted by an undercover informant who formulated a crime and entrapped
Eric in it. Eric was targeted by the state for his political beliefs,
and his case is important for everyone who dares to stand up. He is
currently appealing his conviction and his sentencing.
