Animal Liberation Front (A.L.F.) Prisoners Released

Jan 30th, 2011 by <http://www.voiceofthevoiceless.org/author/admin/>Peter Young

A.L.F. prisoners Jonathan Paul and Alex Hall are released from prison

While formal announcement have not been made by either party, two 
A.L.F. prisoners have been released in recent weeks.

Jonathan Paul released after burning down a slaughterhouse

Jonathan Pau has been released to a halfway house after being 
sentenced to 4 years for his role in burning down the 
West horse slaughterhouse. The 1997 arson in Redmond, Oregon, claimed 
by the Animal Liberation Front, destroyed the building and resulted 
in its permanent closure.

As part of his non-cooperating plea bargain (one of the only plea 
bargains in the string of "Green Scare" cases that did not require 
the prisoner to testify against others), Jonathan Paul also admitted 
to a role in numerous A.L.F. actions going back into the 1980s. 
Included were his admitted roles in the 1988 raid of Loma Linda 
Unversity, and being a getaway driver for the largest laboratory 
liberation to date: the 1989 A.L.F. raid of the University of 
Arizona, in which over 1,000 animals were rescued.

Mink liberation prisoner Alex Hall released

After serving a 21-month sentence for the A.L.F. liberation of 650 
mink from a Utah fur farm, Alex Hall has also been released from prison.

overt animal rights activity in the U.S., only Kevin Kjonas and
