URGENT ANNOUNCEMENT - HOUSE OF NJ ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVIST AND IWW MEMBER
RAIDED AFTER ARRESTS

(For folks local to Kansas, KMA is helping to raise some funds, contact them at: kansasmutualaid (at) hotmail.com or 913-775-1399)

Janice Angelillo was picked up by the NJ State Police for allegedly
spray-painting. Her bail has been set at $15,000 cash. It is believed she
is being targeted for political reasons. As she is the treasurer of the
Central New Jersey Industrial Workers of the World and an avid animal
rights activist. She is presently being held in Essex County Prison. She
was not given her phone call until two days after being arrested. Another associate was also arrested a friend named Nick, from Philadelpha, who is being held on a $20,000 bail.

At approximately 6:30pm (July 23), police arrived at her house in Highland Park, NJ
and detained all the people in the house - Janice's husband Ted, another
housemate, and a few friends who were with them. According to Ted, they
have currently were detained for several hours by officers from New Jersey Joint Terrorism Task Force, brandishing automatic weapons and other firearms. This is being sent out by the request of the people currently being detained. They are asking that people be kept aware of the situation and spread the word.

According to Sean White, an activist that was at the house working to raise bail money for Janice and Nick, although the raid occured sometime around 6:30pm a warrant for this action was NOT signed by a judge until 11:15. They did not take anything untill the warrant arrived, around 1am.

As of 1PM Sunday afternoon (July 24), Janice and Nick are still being held in
the Essex County Jail. Janice is being held on $15,000 bail and Nick is
being held on $20,000. Attempts to bond them out yesterday failed, as the
State is refusing bond and demanding the full cash bail be paid. Any
solidarity you can provide will be much appreciated by her friends and
family. You can Western Union to Janice's husband. You will need his full
name and city the money is being picked up in: Robert Nebus, New
Brunswick, NJ. Please call Ted and let him know you sent money, and the
amount. If you want to donate money a different way, or provide something
else, you can also call him. His number is
732-485-8520.

People can also help by calling the prison at 973 274 7500, and requesting that Janice be given vegan food.

For anyone sending funds, the contact info is as follows:

This is the original announcement sent out about Janice's arrest and need
for funds:

***FORWARD WIDELY***

Urgent Appeal for Cash!

Janice Angelillo was picked up by the NJ State Police, allegedly for
spraypainting. Her bail has been set at $15,000 cash.
It is believed she is being targeted for political reasons. As she is the
treasurer of the Central New Jersey Industrial Workers of the World and an
avid animal rights activist. She is presently being held in Essex County
Prison. She was not given her phone call until two days after being
arrested.

It is urgent that we get her out, because she is being intimidated by the
State Police and Homeland Security about her political activities.

Therefore, I must ask you to please give what you can.
She has never missed any court appearance in the past, and is very
responsible.
Over the next two weeks we will be hosting several benefit shows to return
the money raised.

The prisons number is 973 274 7500 call them to request vegan food for her.

Thanks,
