Plant Based Treaty
Director of Communications, Animal Save Movement
With over 20 years experience in pressure campaigning in the UK, Nicola is a director of communications at Animal Save Movement and Plant Based Treaty. She studied Psychology and Computing at Bournemouth University where she learned how to apply our knowledge of human memory and information processing for application in communication, copy writing and media strategies, graphic design and user interface design. She coordinates the website and blog team, as well as working on the Plant Based Treaty newsletter, email actions, and internal and external communications.
In 2007, following mass arrests of other key-organizers, Nicola took on communications for the SHAC campaign which sought the closure of Huntingdon Life Sciences, until she too became a victim of unprecedented political interference. She received a lengthy prison sentence for her activism, under controversial legislation targeting freedom of expression. She is currently seeking legal redress through the Undercover Policing Inquiry after a senior British judge listed assigned her to miscarriage of justice category.
