COCOA, Fla. -In what police are labeling “a cruel attack,” hoodlums broke into Black Tulip restaurant in Cocoa Village and smashed wine bottles, wrecked artwork, flooded sinks and ruined food, causing more than $100,000 in damages.

“It was complete, total destruction,” said Barbara Matthews, Cocoa police spokeswoman.  “This wasn’t your typical act of vandalism — it was designed to destroy this restaurant.”

The vandals struck between the restaurant, which opened on Brevard Avenue in 1981, sometime from Monday afternoon to Wednesday morning, Matthews said.

Interview with Walter Bond, July 2011
Facilitated by Carol L. Glasser

According to your support page, you have been dedicated to the work of animal liberation and anti-capitalism for over 15 years. Can you please describe how and when you became involved in activism, in particular activism geared toward animal liberation?

In the winter of 1996, when I was 19 years old, I got a job with a company named Dakota Mechanical. Their home office was in Jefferson, South Dakota; however, most of their work crews were scattered around the Midwest and Iowa in particular. I was hired as a forklift operator and apprentice plumber. I worked building two separate slaughterhouses. One in Logansport, Indiana – which was a brand new facility – and one in Perry, Iowa, where we built an extension to an already running “kill floor.” Both slaughterhouses were IBP (Iowa Beef Producers), which have over twenty death camps in the state of Iowa for pigs alone. During the six months that I was employed at the Perry, Iowa facility, I saw every single area of production and confinement. I witnessed daily the profound cruelty that is simply industry standards in “pork production,” culminating in viewing a 500-pound pig being beat to death with blunt force by IBP workers. This particular individual animal had escaped his leg hold shackle and went running off the kill floor bleeding from the throat. As he was beaten to death I also witnessed my work crew cheering and high-fiving each other, as if it were a sporting event. This event had a very profound effect on me, a very internal effect.

Marino’s Exclusive Interview with Non-Human’s First

Simulposted with Non-Humans First

Hi Camille, an honor to speak with you. Could you tell us a bit about your work?

Thank you, Aran. The honor is all mine. I founded Negotiation is Over (NIO) in 2008 and Eleventh Hour for Animals in 2010. My vision for NIO remains one of exposing abusers and shaming them publicly. If you torture animals from nine to five, you should not expect to go home and enjoy any semblance of peace and anonymity. Vivisectors hate my approach. And they should. I think what shocks me more is that welfarists hate my work more because the vivisectors don’t approve. I find it difficult to understand how some in our community are more concerned with gaining the approval of the enemy rather than fighting for their nonhuman victims.

Walter Bond was sentenced to ten years in prison for burning down wool and fur factories to protest the mistreatment of animals. From a prison in Marion,Illinois, he insists that he does not regret what he did. We interviewed the Animal Liberation Front activist.

Mr. Whirly, Walter Bond’s kindergarten teacher, once told his Mum: “Your son is a very bright child, but has problems with authority and that will cause you problems someday.” And so it was. Today, Bond is serving a ten-year sentence on charges of second-degree arson.

On April 30, 2010, this 36-year old activist set fire to a sheepskin factory in Denver, Colorado. Losses totaled about $500,000. Days later, in Utah, he did the same to a leather factory and the Tiburon restaurant whose specialty is foie gras. Bond was arrested on July 22 of that year.
