*Trigger Warning: The experiences described and images shown in this article are a distressing snippet into the lives of Muggle undercover animal rights investigators and may be upsetting to Protego supporters.
SHAC mobilized a targeted, direct action campaign of demonstrations, educational media, and, on occasion, property damage against Huntingdon Life Sciences. They were considered to be America’s number one domestic terrorist threat and six of The SHAC 7 defendants were convicted on federal charges and imprisoned. The Protego Foundation’s co-founder, Tylor Starr, co-hosts the podcast Radicals and Revolutionaries with one of the SHAC 7, Jake Conroy (aka: The Cranky Vegan), which explores the histories of Riddikulusly radical individuals who have revolutionized the animal rights movement and continue that fight today.
