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 Cavel West horse slaughterhouse.
The 1997 arson in Redmond, Oregon, claimed by the Animal Liberation Front,
destroyed the building and resulted in its permanent closure.
Cavel West ALF arson
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.
