According to a post from the NYC Anarchist Black Cross, environmental activist Daniel McGowan was taken back into Federal custody earlier today. He had previously served time in prison and had been released to a halfway house. It is believed that an article he wrote earlier this week about being denied the ability to stay in contact with his family and supporters during his imprisonment – on account of his political writings and being labelled as a “terrorist” – are what caused the Feds to take him back into custody.
The Fear Dept must be working overtime to spew out irony this thick.
Daniel is currently being held at MDC Brooklyn. Send him mail:

**UPDATE: New article on Huffington Post about how Daniel’s blog most likely led to his imprisonment.**
