Longtime ALF Activist Hired by HSUS

Last week the Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade sent out a press release saying it was reorganizating. It turns out that the Humane Society of the United States recently hired CAFT’s JP Goodwin. Fur Commission USA has an excellent article, Careers in the Conflict Industry, on Goodwin and HSUS.

As the Fur Commission USA article makes clear, Goodwin has a long history of arrests. In 1993 he plead guilty to vandalizing several fur stores. In fact, the Fur Commission USA article includes a nice photo of Goodwin wearing a shirt emblazoned with Animal Liberation Front.

Now, Goodwin has the backing of the Humane Society of the United States’ tax free millions.
