Dan Wadham, long term AR prisoner was punished this week for daring to raise money for Sea Shepherd. Dan is serving five years for activities relating to SHAC (see SchNEWS 663) and is currently at HMP Camp Hill on the Isle of Wight.

Having access to a small prison running track, he hit on the idea of doing a sponsored marathon. He completed the well publicised run on 15th April - without any interference from the prison authorities.

However this week he found his prisoner status had been dropped from 'enhanced', meaning a significant loss of privileges.

The prison's security advisor had apparently retrospectively decided that this charitable act counted as a 'political action'.
