|Gerald "Jerry" Koch, a New York City anarchist and legal activist, has been subpoenaed to a federal grand jury and has refused to testify to protect fellow radicals and to resist an anarchist witch hunt.
Jerry uses ethical civil disobedience to oppose state oppression. This is often ignored by most prominent media, as it's hard to make silence into an eyeball-drawing spectacle. Jerry's resolute silence isn't spectacle, but quietly disrupts the new status quo of capitulation to unconstitutional government intimidation.
Jerry was found in contempt of court, and has been in prison since May 19th, 2013. The main website is down 'mysteriously' at the moment, but the FB page remains.
