Anarchist prisoner Toby Shone was sentenced to 3 years 9 months in prison for 8 drug offences at Bristol Crown Court on 13th October 2021 after Terrorism charges were dropped. He has already served 8 months of this sentence on remand.
The ‘drugs’ were psychedelics and medicinal plants (LSD, DMT, cannabis, THC oil, MDMA and magic mushrooms) found at two of the four properties raided by counter-terror cops in the UK South-West on 18th November 2020 in their hunt for the administrator of anarchist website 325.nostate.net.
Toby was originally charged with providing a service enabling others to access terrorist publications contrary to section 2 of the Terrorism Act 2006, fundraising for terrorist purposes contrary to section 15 of the Terrorism Act 2000, and two counts of possession of information likely to be useful to a terrorist contrary to section 58 of the Terrorism Act 2000. He had pleaded not guilty to these charges earlier this year and was due to stand trial at Bristol Crown Court on 6 October 2021. However, with no evidence to put before the court, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) was forced to drop these charges on 1st October. This was a landmark attempt by the British State and the deranged Home Secretary Priti Patel to prosecute an anarchist under modern terrorism legislation.
The investigation into 325 continues and cops continue to harass and attempt to intimidate one of Toby’s comrades at her home.
Toby is in good spirits and remains strong. He hopes to delay being transferred to another prison until he has hadhis annual MRI scan for cancer which is scheduled for this month with his medical team in ristol, so please continue to send letters of support and birthday cards (it is his birthday on 20th October) to:
