Athens: The Earth Liberation Front takes responsibility for an incendiary attack against a poultry company in solidarity with the prisoners struggle (Greece)
Sunday, April 19th, 2015
Inter Arma received and translated:
On the evening of the Easter day, 12 to 13 of April, we attacked using 3 incendiary devices with time delay, aiming to destroy the building’s entrance and 3 vehicles (1 truck and 2 vans) belonging to a poultry company in Agios Pavlos Str. in Peristeri, as an action of solidarity with the imprisoned hunger strikers in Greek prisons.
Strength to all those who continue, to the imprisoned members of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and those who are recovering, having stood with dignity and consistency against the state and in this specific timing, against the left administrators and exponents of authority – who (and this is clear for all those who don’t connive) since the first day they gripped the governmental seats have made their intentions clear, with highlight, so far, the tactical administration of the hunger strike and the eviction of the occupied University’s of Athens deanery.
IMMEDIATE satisfaction of the hunger strikers’ demands:
Abolition of paragraphs 187 and 187A of the counter-terrorist law
Abolition of the hood-law
Abolition of type C prisons
Immediate release of the heavily handicapped Savvas Ksiros
Restriction of DNA use
We chose this specific target as we believe that practical opposition to the non-human animals commercialization industry cannot be excluded from the fight against the state, the capital and every kind of authoritarian superstructure. The practice of detention is the same, equally rejectable whether it has to do with human prisons – “correctional institutions”, concentration camps or if it concerns structures of the meat and animal products industry .
The timing of our attack was no coincidence. It was a moment while the human-mass was still sunk in sloth, having done the previous days their bit towards the Church and the holy ghosts that haunt and define their very existence. Every temple of society, physical or mental, every mold, every stereotype, every habit that reproduces, feeds or just reflects the numerous faces of power, is worth nothing more than being crushed.
Such a habit is the meat eating which has been established the exact same way that the practice of nature looting is established as “normal”, as we notice it taking place in Skouries, Chalkidiki, Italy (NO-TAV) and every place in the world.
Through this action of ours we respond to the call of Chilean comrades, whose actions have given us smiles so many times. Strength to Nataly Casanova, Juan Flores and Guillermo Durán, who are on hunger strike since April 14th.
At the same time, we are sending our own signal of solidarity and complicity to all those charged, imprisoned and suffering repression, having found themselves on the attack lines of ELF and ALF.
We’re sending out a call to every rebelling individual, every affinity group, every direct action cell, in order to intensify the attacks on all fronts, in any way they think suitable, by all means available.

Anonymous report on Hayvanozgurlugucevirileri.com:
November 1st should be an action day for animal liberation not a partying day for veganism.
At the European side of Istanbul, on 1st November around 2 am, we did series of actions: Two trucks that transport dead chickens are sabotaged. Tires blown, front windows broken, locks glued.
“Viva animal liberation” slogans are also spray painted in same neighborhood. Another fast-food restaurant nearby is attacked, windows smashed.
Every day action, every day ALF!
Viva Animal liberation!
Down with speciesism!
Everything for our animal friends!
Freedom to earth, animals and humans!

“ON AUGUST 23 WE OPENED THE CAGES AT THE MINK FARM ON VIA TOSATTI IN SCORZE’ (VE) – ITALY
THERE WERE THREE STRUCTURES AT THE FARM FOR THE KEEPING OF ANIMALS, ONE WAS EMPTY, SO WE WERE BUSY IN THE OTHER TWO WHERE HUNDREDS OF MINK WERE LOCKED IN CAGES. WE REMOVED ALL IDENTIFICATION TAGS, MAKING IT IMPOSSIBLE TO IDENTIFY OR CLASSIFY ANY ANIMAL WHO WAS RECAPTURED.
WE DAMAGED SEVERAL CAGES AND DESTROYED DOZENS OF METERS OF FENCE AT THE BACK OF THE FARM TO ALLOW THE MINK TO ESCAPE INTO THE FIELDS BETWEEN THICK CROPS AND STREAMS.
SOON FARMS WILL START KILLING THOUSANDS OF MINK FOR THE PRODUCTION OF FUR.
FOR THESE ANIMALS WHO WILL BE SKINNED THERE IS NO OTHER POSSIBILITY THAN TO OPEN THE CAGES. ANIMAL LIBERATION IS NOT EMPTY WORDS BUT A REALITY WHERE THERE IS OPPRESSION.

20 pages B&W: After Prison Zine
The ‘After Prison’ zine is a project which aims to share stories of life after prison from former earth & animal liberation prisoners in the hope that people will develop a more thorough understanding of what former prisoners face on the outside. This project is also for those former prisoners still facing restrictions on who they can interact with, so they can read of others’ experiences.

Secret animal testing lab revealed!
- Claim of responsibility -
The company BIOMEDVET RESEARCH GMBH operates an animal testing laboratory at:
They are conducting tests on beagles. The laboratory is located at the spot where the infamous animal testing company HARLAN operated a lab. HARLAN left Walsrode at the end of 2009. BIOMEDVET has been there since the beginning of 2010. The animal murder continued, only with other perpetrators. The laboratory is small but for the animals who are dying it does not matter. Murder is murder.
The laboratory is totally secluded in a wooded area. It is well hidden and hardly anyone knows about it. The company has no website. They probably thought they would go undetected. Even in the animal rights scene, the lab may be unknown. Unfortunately it was not possible to liberate the dogs. But we attacked an expensive car on the premises: Paint stripped and glass etched.
Companies like BIOMEDVET must be pulled from anonymity. Our motto: Animal killers, you can not hide! We will find you sooner or later!
Our message to the animal rights scene: Make something out of this! The underground has done its part.
Animal testing is murder. We will resist animal testing and all forms of animal exploitation.
No rest for the animal murderers!

Cartago: Incendiary attack against butcher shop by ‘Savages of the Earth – ELF/ALF/FAI/FRI’ (Costa Rica)
Saturday, September 27th, 2014
Various cells have initiated a series of small acts of sabotage in Costa Rica for months now, yet we really didn’t expect that our action would have such a strong impact. It is the first action of this type in this filthy country in many, many years…
For this reason we saw the need to claim responsibility for this action, thinking that many more people would gain strength and shake off the fear that torments us every day, this fear that doesn’t let us go any farther…
The technological control is steadily increasing, that’s why we decided to take control of our lives for a few moments and carry out this action, which is not an end in itself but the means by which we get revenge for our slavery. On Thursday, June 19th, 2014 we particularly attacked a butcher shop in Cartago with an incendiary device. The fire exceeded our expectations, and according to reports in the Press the total damages were more than 40,000 dollars. The meat industry is a clear reflection of this society: domestication, minimum respect toward nature, and money as a sacred god behind every move. (more…)

The following interview was given by the Assembly for the Antispeciesist Action in May 2013 and published by comrades in Spain in October, in the 2nd volume of the anarchist animal liberation zine “Fiera”.
In which context did the Assembly for the Antispeciesist Action in Athens arise? Which are your goals and what are the difficulties you are facing in realizing these goals?
The Assembly for the Antispeciesist Action was formed in 2010 on an individual initiative. We are an anarchist collective whose goal is to spread the word on total liberation. We feel it is important to note that by using the term “total liberation” we do not only refer to the struggle against any form of domination upon humans. We do not recognize any form of human superiority against other species and therefore the struggle for animal self-determination is an integral part of our political identity, as well as the struggle against nature’s exploitation. Our enemy is not only the core of the state mechanism but also the whole technological-industrial complex that considers human, animals and nature to be nothing more than raw material and production resources.

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014
Today, Monday the seventh of April, our comrades in Skövde, Sweden, were sentenced. The comrade who’s still kept in captivity was sentenced to 2 years and 6 months in prison. One of the comrades who were released last week was sentenced to 1 year in prison. The other, with the more talkative approach in court, who also was released last week was sentenced to a probationary sentence. Yet two comrades, also they being on the outside, were sentenced to suspended sentences.
Even though the prosecutor creep did’nt get its will done, we see no reason to celebrate. Our comrades have still spent half a year – more and less – in the disgusting pre-trial isolation cells and they have still their sentences to either serve or evade.
Prison is and will, as long as this society continues to exist, be one of the worst weapons in the State arsenal. A weapon they are using every day in the social war against us and anybody who doesn’t fit in to their disgusting frames of Normality. Prison is however not an end station but a continuation of our struggle against this reality. To maintain a struggle without including the prison and justice system as targets, is to shoot oneself in the foot.
Fire to the prisons! Strength to our comrades!

-always for the subversion of the existent
Tuesday, April 1st, 2014
Late 14th and early 15th of October 2013, five comrades were arrested and imprisoned in Skövde, Sweden, suspected for over twenty different attacks on furfarmers and the fur industry as well as liberations of minks. Three of the comrades were later considered to be main suspects and the two others were released, however still being suspects. Close upon the trial startup end of January, yet another person was detained for involvement in some of the suspected attacks but this person was also released, still being a suspect.
During their interrogations the three main suspects kept their mouths shut, besides one comrade who took the responsibility for a suspected arson against a garage belonging to a fur farmer.
Seeing the media potential, the disgusting ex-minister of justice Thomas Bodström, nowadays a populistic lawyer, took it on himself to represent all the fur farmers in the court process. (more…)

“GREEN NEMESIS” PROJECT
I. SILENCE IS NOT GOLD.
We break the silence. Our life looks like a frozen product ready to be sold. We live in the concrete metropolises of your civilization, we submissively execute the orders of the managers, the bosses, the superiors, we operate like programmed robots, we breathe the polluted air of your factories, we wander and die on the high speed highways of your commodities, we believe in the false avatars of wealth, we desire what the advertisements command us to desire, we fall in love via screens, we communicate via keyboards, we imprison ourselves inside walls and storefronts, serial numbers and barcodes. That’s it… We break free from your prison. We are aware of the fact that everybody talks today about the financial crisis’ curse. The preachers of politics are attempting to rectify the numbers, to improve statistics, to invent the social formulas of treatment and promises of salvation.
Nobody mentions, however, that economy, the domination of wealth in social relationships, is an achievement of civilization that you taught and fed us with, all these years.
Meanwhile, nobody seems concerned about the murder of nature, the torture and killing of the animals and generally about the extermination of the human being itself caused by the totalitarianism of science of technology, its laboratory experiments, the nuclear energy, the radioactive “accidents”, the GE products, the cannibalism of massive meat production industry, the pollution of the oceans, the chemical weapons, the genetic manipulation, the deforestation… (more…)

From behind fences and razor wire, from behind concrete walls and steel bars, from deep within the United States Penitentiary of Marion, from the CMU unit, from this counter-terrorism prison unit for political prisoners, I send revolutionary greetings to all Straight Edge, Vegan and Anarchist Comrades where ever you may be. From the confines of this dungeon of gray concrete I send a message of solidarity and hope to all the sisters and brothers worldwide, in hopes that all our causes for liberation will one day coalesce into the realization of Total Liberation. Just as the rivers all lead to the ocean, so too will the movements for Human, Earth and Animal Liberation pool into a far larger initiative. (more…)
Two dolphins liberated from Yevpatoria dolphinarium by ‘SEALS on tour’ cell of the Animal Liberation Front – Informal Anarchist Federation (Ukraine)
Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013
2 dolphins were set free from Yevpatoria dolphinarium as a result of a special operation with diving equipment. During the night of the full moon on 20/07/2013 we covered 2 km under water and breached the security perimeter: We cut the nets and entered the dolphin containment pools.
In the next hour we cut a large part of the perimeter barrier. Dolphins encouraged our efforts with clicks and whistling. Their support filled us with joy and excitement.
This has been an unforgettable meeting and encouraging experience for us. Our job done, we left the area of operation. By the way, the prison was equipped with night-vision cameras, but their red eyes were turned on the catwalks and audience seats. Nobody expected our approach from below. As soon as dolphins got wind of freedom and open water, they escaped into the night sea.
ALF/FAI – SEALS on tour
Wednesday, June 26th, 2013
June 11th has been defined as a day of international solidarity with comrades Eric McDavid and Marie Mason and with all political prisoners who are incarcerated all over the world. Imprisoned comrades experience this situation not only due to their direct action and the transubstantiation of their words into action, but also because of their choice to be anarchists.
In the struggle for degradation and destruction of state/authoritarian complex, anarchists comrades and activists-abroad and in Greece, too-consider as an integral part of animal and earth liberation human liberation, too.
In U.S.A., the Animal Liberation Front and the Earth Liberation Front have been proclaimed by FBI as the No. 1 enemy of domestic terrorism. Eric McDavid and Marie Mason were arrested in January 2006 and September 2008 respectively,
without proof but with plenty of accusations. The State’s choice of their imprisonment was far more than random. (more…)

In the early hours of Monday 18/2, groups of comrades made a coordinated attack against various targets in the suburbs of Athens (Greece), which represent different sides of a reality that not only we don’t take for granted but on the contrary, we plan with hate its destruction. Against the authoritarian tombstone of the general social apathy, we promote the chaos of direct action. (more…)

from russia with love:
We receive and transmit: 10/02/2013 members of ALF-Kuban torched construction vehicles used for destroying a grove – one of the few left – in Krasnodar.
“All river basin is in danger, because these woods act as lungs for three districts: Komsomolsky, Pashkovky and Hydrostroy). In their lust for profit development companies won’t listen to locals, ecological surveys or petitions. So we chose to sabotage their efforts. We are making them pay,” – ALF-Kuban
Total Liberation: An interview with Walter Bond on Anarchy, Abortion rights, Anti-Colonialism & Animal Liberation
Sunday, February 17th, 2013
Punk bands tour the world singing anthems that promote militant direct action & activism, putting out albums with flaming Molotovs emblazoned across their covers, with militant messages; but few of us ever truly put those words into action. Walter Bond on the other hand has spent decades working tirelessly, whether leafleting at shows and in the streets, tabling at Pride events, protesting, or volunteering at animal sanctuaries before finally turning to the more militant tactics of the Animal Liberation Front. Walter is a proud anarchist, Vegan, of Latino heritage, who identifies as bisexual. He also is currently a prisoner in one of the most controversial and restrictive prisons in the USA today.
I have been writing to Walter in prison since he was first arrested 2 years ago, after his brother snitched him out. At the time of his arrest, Walter was living on the streets while attacking businesses that profit from animal exploitation.
PE: – You identified as an anarchist for most of your life. Can you tell us what being an anarchist means to you, and how it connects with Animal Liberation, and Total Liberation?
WALTER: When I was in 7th grade in 1989 I used to make all kinds of clip art fliers with my friends under the name ‘Anti-Statist Counter Culture’. We would distribute them mostly to local corporate businesses and churches in the area, mostly to agitate. By the end of 8th grade I had completely dropped out of school and was living this nihilist lifestyle and was just very reactionary and angry at the whole world, parents, school, everything! Back then I was dealing with a world of shit that was to much for me to handle. I turned to drug abuse and vandalism as an outlet. Anarchism back then was a personal vendetta I had about how my life and the world around me was and how I felt it should be. (more…)

(KOMUNIKE VERSI BAHASA INDONESIA)
Perjuangan kami tidak dapat dibatasi dalam terma-terma peradaban. Kami tak dapat dimengerti. Kami liar dan merupakan musuh peradaban. Tidak hanya negara dan kapital, tapi seluruh peradaban: kami menentang seluruhnya.
Kami adalah mereka yang dengan bangga menanggalkan kedamaian sosial, melangkah keluar dari zona-zona nyaman kami dan melakukan serangan terhadap apa yang kami benci. Kami mendeklarasikan perang terhadap peradaban dan seluruh propertinya dan bergabung dalam perang gerilya urban internasional bersama saudara-saudari seperjuangan kami di Federasi Informal Anarkis dan Front Revolusioner Internasional.
Kami mengklaim dan mengambil tanggung jawab atas aksi pembakaran terhadap mobil dan rumah Wakil Sekretaris DPD Demokrat (partai pemenang pemilu 2009) di Sumatera Selatan, aksi pembakaran terhadap 4 mesin ATM di Makassar, dan serangan terhadap dua gardu listrik di Jakarta selama seminggu terakhir.
Aksi-aksi kami dipersembahkan sebagai solidaritas terhadap perjuangan petani Ogan Kemilir Ilir, kepada pemberontak di Papua: Buktar Tabuni dan Dominikus Sorabut yang ditahan oleh pemerintah Indonesia, kepada seluruh perjuangan anti tambang yang tersebar dan mekar di sepanjang pesisir selatan Jawa, dan kepada masyarakat adat di Kalimantan, Mentawai, Jambi dan Papua.
Kami juga mengirimkan salam revolusioner teruntuk Tukijo: petani pemberani dan terhormat dari Kulon Progo, teruntuk tahanan-tahanan kasus NO TAV, tahanan-tahanan ELF di Amerika Serikat, teruntuk Marco Camenisch dan Gabriel Pombo da Silva, juga teruntuk para tahanan anarkis yang tidak pernah mundur dan tunduk di bawah hukum.
