On this week's episode of Progressive Voices, I speak with Mike Garrett, an anti-captivity activist who has been dealt a $1.5-million lawsuit by Marineland.
This comes a few weeks after Marineland owner John Holer was caught on tape threatening to kill Garrett while Garrett was leafleting on public property by Marineland's exit.
Garrett maintains this is another Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation -- a SLAPP suit -- that Marineland is employing to silence and intimidate activists who have mobilized against the park.
For legal support, donations can be made via PayPal or Interac to firstname.lastname@example.org

Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
