Joan Court: An Interview with the Animal Rights Granarchist!

Never underestimate Joan Court, at first glance she could be any ordinary OAP, but this could not be further from the truth.  I interviewed Joan, a 90 year-old animal rights campaigner, about her extraordinary life and work.  Joan has gone on hunger strike; chain herself to railings, occupied the Canadian embassy and at 86 embarked on a mission to confront the illegal fishing vessels with environmental enforcement group Sea Shepherd. Today Joan Court is still active in the Cambridge animal rights scene to such an extent police documents once bizarrely said she 'was the leader of SHAC'!
