Walter Bond is an imprisoned Animal Liberation Front activist who in the Summer of 2010 was arrested for the “ALF Lonewolf” arsons of the Sheepskin Factory in Denver, Colorado, the Tandy Leather Factory in Salt Lake City, Utah and the Tiburon Restaurant in Sandy, Utah which sold Foie Gras. He received a total of 12 years and 4 months for his actions from the court on October 13th, 2011.
Walter's experience as a 19 year old slaughterhouse construction worker propelled him into Veganism and a life focused on ending our culture's enslavement and exploitation of animals and the natural world. As a prisoner of war, Walter continues to influence and motivate other activists dynamically via his essays and public statements which have speedily transversed the globe over the internet and have been translated into several different languages.
Walter has been a vegan hardliner for over 15 years and has struggled against a deadly and genocidal culture of drug abuse in the United States. Walter is unabashedly straight edge and is the subject of the song “To Ashes” by the band Earth Crisis - which was inspired by Bond's 1998 prison sentence for arson. Bond was convicted of burning down the home and meth operation of a multi-million dollar drug dealer that was selling poison to his family and friends.
Walter's entire philosophy and program of action is centered on these six words “Animal Liberation, Whatever it May Take!”
