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

While formal announcement have not been made by either, 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.

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.
