Snitch Ian Wallace’s Plea Agreement

November 2, 2008 at 11:34 pm (Announcements and Advisories, Miscellaneous, Rhinelander)

As many of you already know, snitch Ian Wallace recently plead guilty to his involvement in an attempted ELF arson at Michigan Tech University in 2001. He took a cooperating plea agreement, viewable here: wallace-plea-agreement.

In the agreement, Wallace also admits to his involvement in three other acts of eco-sabotage. These are:

  1. Apr. 1, 2000 – University of Minnesota, St. Paul, MN – (vandalism) vehicles and building, U.S. Forest Service, North Central Research Station, St. Paul Annex; loss $25,186.
  2. Jul. 20, 2000 – Rhinelander, WI – (property destruction) 500 research trees, U.S. Forest Service, North Central Research Station, Forestry Sciences Laboratory; loss $1,000,000.
  3. Jan. 26, 2002 – University of Minnesota, St. Paul, MN – (arson) Cargill Building for Microbial and Plant Genomics construction site; loss $630,000.

Ian Wallace, who has been cooperating in ELF investigations for some time, has entered an agreement that legally binds him to cooperate fully with the State.  Though we believe that most (though not necessarily all) statutes of limitations on these acts have expired by now, we are nonetheless urging folks throughout the Midwest and the country to bear in mind that Wallace’s cooperation may still result in indictments of other people.  This only highlights the need for the development of strong radical networks able and ready to resist State repression.  We encourage you to start educating yourself and your community about non-cooperation with the State and to keep building movements of resistance to the system in all its oppressive manifestations.
