Andy Stepanian is a social justice activist from Long Island. In 2006, he was sentenced to 3 years in prison for
his role in the Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty campaign. The last 6 months of his sentence were in a secretive high security prison called The Communication Management Unit, known by some federal officials as “Little Gitmo”. The SHAC7 case was recently denied certiorari by the Supreme Court, but still remains a hotly
contested first amendment issue.
