Rod Coronado, the well known US eco and animal rights activist, was released from prison on December 25th. He has served time on a number of occasions since 1995 for his activism (see SchNEWS 556), and this time had been sentenced to one year in March 2008 on a felony charge for a 2003 public speech in San Diego where he demonstrated the use of incendiary devices.

This happened the day after the bombing of an apartment building in San Diego which caused $50m of damage, and was attributed to ELF. Although Rod has associations with the ELF, he was never a suspect. Free for Christmas, he now has to spend three months in a halfway house.
