Support Eric Speaking Tour Headed Your Way
25 Jul 2008
Dear Friends,

After enduring over 2 ½ years of having our loved one in jail and prison, we have decided it’s time to hit the road and start screaming from the rooftops about Eric and his case. We only regret that it has taken us this long… but circumstances demanded restraint, and our energies were focused on the struggle for Eric’s freedom. But now we can wait no longer. Eric has suffered enormous injustices at the hands of the state – and we want to do everything we can to make sure that people don’t forget about Eric, that they understand how his case was created, and to ensure that people learn what they can from our experiences these past 2 ½ years.

To that end, we are putting together a speaking tour to educate folks about Eric’s case, which we will use as a lens through which to study the basic concepts of entrapment, the use of informants, and government repression in general. Unfortunately, these tools of the state are becoming more and more prevalent, and it’s imperative that people understand how they work.

If you are interested in scheduling a presentation in your community, please contact us at: tour (at) We will be on the road from the end of August (starting in Denver, CO), through the month of September. First we’ll be headed east, then we’ll make our way all the way back out west. Below is a rough estimate of when we’ll be in particular regions.

We hope to see you soon!
