As a follow up to Nick's arrest. He's still in
custody despite a team of activists trying to bail him out on the BS
guidelines they set up. The problem is that they aren't letting him
post bond. With out posting bond he won't be extradited to NJ where he
can see a judge and make bail where his warrant was issued. It's just
another form of harassment and police repression. At this rate he could
be held for
at 5 days after making bond (which they are
preventing). It is uncertain if he will be able to
even make bond anytime soon because of them preventing it.
At this point Nick needs phone calls more then ever to insure he is
Please call 1-610-630-9390 and ask for them to give him Vegan food not
Vegetarian, ask about when he's going to be extradited to NJ, when he

see a judge, ask about his bond, visiting times, directions to the
Please be polite or they may take it out on him.
Nicholas Cooney has been arrested once again. He was involved in a legal
protest outside Glaxo Smith Kline's King of Prussia, PA facility and
taken in for an outstanding warrant in Ocean County, NJ. He is currently
being held in the Upper Merrion, PA jail, but will be extradited to NJ
at an undetermined time, probably during the weekend.
Please make some polite but firm phone calls to the jail to request
vegan food for Nick and to inquire about his well-being. The phone
number there is 610 265-3232.
After Nick is extradited (an email will go out under separate cover),
he will be transferred to the Ocean County Correctional Facility in
River, NJ. After he has been transferred, the phone number for jail
support calls will be 732 929-2043.
Nick's co-defendant, Janice Angelillo, has agreed to surrender herself
on Monday morning. Her bail has been set at $10,000 with no option to
pay 10% or to post a bond.
Immediate cash donations are needed to pay for bail and prevent Nicholas
and Janice from rotting in jail while they await their court dates.
Both are excellent and dedicated activists. Please give whatever you
