Animal Rights Repression in Spain: Arrested Activist Sharon Núñez Gough Speaks Out

This week we present a special interview with Sharon Núñez Gough, co-founder of Igualdad Animal / Animal Equality. She is one of the 12 animal activists (including members of Equanimal) arrested in Spain last Tuesday, June 22nd, 2011. She and 8 others have since been released with charges, while three others remain imprisoned.

In this interview we hear a firsthand account from Núñez Gough about the largest crackdown on animal activism in Spanish history, including descriptions of the recent arrests, background information about the groups’ actions, and associated state repression.
