Our hearing just ended, and the judge absolutely DESTROYED Monsanto’s subpoena on Avaaz!!!!
He said the subpoena would have a “tremendous chilling effect”, saying “no member would want to have their privacy and their activity known” and actually gave Monsanto a lecture on democracy and free speech!!
Avaaz members in the courtroom spontaneously broke into applause and huge smiles at his words. Here’s a quick video filmed minutes ago from our Campaign Director Iain Keith on the steps of the courthouse:
