HLS protest target accuses peaceful protesters of planning to burn home
At a Feb 13 fur protest, a participant told WSQT Radio that Steve Goodman, the husband of HLS customer exec Jennifer Luray, had accused peaceful protesters of plotting to burn their home at a DC City Council meeting on the subject of a proposed ban on home demos.
Here is a picture of Steve Goodman-taken in the Metro just before he grabbed and choked a woman protester he had followed there.
Here is a blurry cellphone picture of Steve Goodman in the act of choking a female protester. Now he has the nerve to call peaceful picketers “violent” and accuse them of conspiracy to commit arson!
Since there has never been an Animal Liberation Front fire in the DC area, this ludicrous claim borders on slander. It is also stupid,as that sort of stuff didn’t start in California either until the authorities began suppressing peaceful protests with injunctions, raids, and arrests-sometimes for nothing more than giving out leaflets.
Steve Goodman, shown above, who once chased protesters into a Metro station and choked a woman protester, also had the nerve to call protesters “domestic terrorists,” “hoodlums,” and “thugs.” With his record of violence, this is an outrageous slander.
Background on the proposed ban on home demos:
Here is DC cablevision’s full coverage of the hearing before the DC Council
Here is a TV 7 story promoting the home demo ban
Background on Jennifer Luray:
Jenifer Luray, Steve Goodman’s wife, works as a senior executive for a new “non-profit” organization, funded by Abbott Labs, Battelle, GlaxoSmithKline, and the March of Dimes.
Jennifer Luray, until recently, headed up government relations for Abbott Labs, to take on the role of Vice President for the pharmaceutical lobbying front group for 3 of the largest customers of HLS and March of Dimes, who have been exposed for sloppy, unethical science and animal torture.
