for Jailed Animal Rights Activists

Gluten-free options!


On August 14th, Tyler Lang and Kevin Olliff, two Los Angeles animal rights activists, were arrested in rural Illinois for “possession of burglary tools.” After a traffic stop in which they refused consent to a police search, their car was searched anyway. Inside, police allege they found bolt cutters, wire cutters, muriatic acid, ski masks, and camo clothing. There is no evidence linking them to any crime or intended crime, nor were they arrested on anyone’s property. Tyler was released on a plea deal on November 6th. Kevin is still being held, due at least in part to his history of activity in defense of animals.

Money is needed to send books and commissary to Kevin, to help Tyler transition out of jail and to pay legal fees. The money from this dinner will go to their support committee. Whether or not you can attend the event, please consider writing a letter to Kevin at the address on his support site.
