Letter From Jailed Activist Walter Bond
(Please send your letters of
support to him at the address provided at the end of the article)
Jason Miller, Press Officer
North American Animal Liberation
I recently wrote a letter of support to Walter Bond, a
political prisoner and the accused A.L.F. 'Lone Wolf.'
Here is his
Thanks so much for your letter of support.
While obviously I cannot talk about my case, the government of the United
States will not scare me into submission nor will I be silenced. I have
already written to Peter about the day of my arrest as to clear the record
and set straight the media's lies about BBQ's and what not, so I will not
reiterate it here. I let Peter know to share that info with any interested
I am facing some very serious charges and allegations at this
time and if convicted, sentencing could be quite severe. Nevertheless, I am
in good spirits. Having the privilege of being a United States prisoner, I
still have it better than most 3rd World people do in their homelands. And
nothing they do to me could even come close to the plight of animals.
For my part, I shall never relent in the fight for their total freedom.
Any activist that is truly effective at resisting or disrupting these
horrible blood trades may face persecution. There is no cause to despair in
any of this. When you are trying to change the status quo, self-sacrifice is
the price of admission.
In the end our cause will win. Either
humanity will perish after having ruined the biosphere and our Mother Earth
will heal and continue without us or those who profess to be Earth and
animal warriors will prove it and change the current of world history, as so
many social justice movements before us have done.
However, we will
not win simply because we are right. Progress only occurs because of courage
Feel free to share this letter with any interested
party, in whole or in part. I hope to hear from you soon. I can receive
literature and media (news articles, etc), but only printed from the
computer. No newspaper clippings, magazines, etc. I forgot to mention that
to Peter. If you could pass that along I would appreciate it. Also, any
monetary support would be much appreciated as well.
After being denied bail, Walter Bond will likely remain
in Jefferson County Jail (Golden, CO) until his trial. Write Walter Bond a
letter of support:

PO Box 16700
As soon as the procedure for donating money to Bond's jail
account is learned, it will be posted on TPC,
