Today, Emma Sheppard was sentenced to two years imprisonment. She is the police’s first conviction under Operation Rhone, investigating a spate of attacks carried out by anarchists in Bristol. For more information on what the police have been upto see here.
Emma Sheppard had put together a homemade ‘stinger’ device which was placed outside a police station puncturing the tyres of police vehicles driving over it, around the New Year period. The sentencing appears to have opted for anything other than what it was – criminal damage.
We understand from she is in good spirits, but all the same it is important that people write to her, to keep her spirits up. She is a committed environmental activist of some years.
