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.

Kepada para kamerad Konspirasi Internasional untuk Balas Dendam: mari bakar habis kemeleratan dan perbudakan!
Hingga pada keruntuhan peradaban!
Hingga pada kebebasan utuh dan kehidupan liar!

Walter Bond, the animal liberation fighter who embraced Islam, has dropped the name ‘Abdul Haqq’, and he has written in one of his new letters: “Religion, all religion is a waste of my time! I’m through with it, I don’t believe it and the whole business of it makes me want to fucking puke!”. In this prison letter, and also this one, he publicly talks about rumours, misconceptions and changes of his opinions, and below you can find his reasons why he decided to drop the name ‘Adul Haqq’.
What’s In A Name?
I have decided to drop the name ‘Abdul Haqq’ for the following reasons:
First, religion is not the defining aspect of my struggle, Animal Liberation is. While my spirituality is an Important aspect of my personal life it has nothing to do with the fight for the total freedom of the oppressed. Religion has a terrible track record of persecution of just about every social group one could possibly imagine and I am not here to play apologist to tyranny, in the name of God, or politricks, or consumerism, or any of the other stupid ass reasons people find to justify their bloodlust! Furthermore, the more my own spirituality in mysticism has progressed the more I realize that the institution of religion is poison to my spiritual path. Sufis of the past often had to speak and write their esoteric wisdom in parables and riddles to avoid being murdered by the orthodox regimes of their times, I don’t. And I find the whole business of labeling, and packaging my beliefs and faith under the auspices of this or that religion to be narrowing in and of itself. (more…)

Russia, Tver. ALF torch electricity station and sabotage a hunt. Some words of solidarity with imprisoned eco-anarchist comrades
We send our fiery greetings to anarchist comrades in prison: Yana Terenina and Aleksandra Dukhanina. We take this opportunity to remind about Yana Terenina and her fate. She was put to prison after an incident near the “Atrium” shopping mall in Moscow. A fight broke out between Yana and a lady enamored with furry coats. During the fight lady’s husband chose to join the action, while the lady herself used scissors as a weapon. After the trial judge decided Yana and her friend Maksim fitted “armed robbery” charges. The fur-enamored lady rejected all offers of peaceful resolution of conflict.
Aleksandra Dukhanina is awaiting trial in regards with public disobedience during mass protests of 06/05/2012, when police forces provoked violence.
In the night of October 28-29 we destroyed a power substation that gave power to a hunting resort under Tver. We used bolt-cutters to cut through locks and gain access to the station’s interior. We planted two incendiaries (5l of gasoline each) and set the fuse on fire, retreating into the woods.
While moving through the forest we kept encountering hunting parties with dogs. We did our best to avoid them. Then we happened upon a hunting decoy (feeding facility for boars and elks). We vandalized it at first, but after a brief discussion decided to torch it to the ground. Soon the place was sound ablaze.

18 pheasants liberated in Chelyabinsk, cell tower torched in Kolomna, trees planted elsewhere. Acts of solidarity from Russia.
Hunting season in Russia kicked off simultaneously with autumn rains. Nowadays this is called ‘We provide for the best spending of your leisure time’. Murder of wildlife has become a banal hobby, an entertainment, a way to relax from working routine in noisy megapolis.
On 21.09 we moved out to attack a farm where wild birds were bred in captivity. We failed to find bird cages on site, so a decision was made to torch a meat restaurant (a facility where most birds end up as meat dishes). But our scouts reported that this building doubled as a place for animal confinement during autumn and winter time. So an action was called off for fear of killing animals. We do not disclose the exact location of the facility because we are not done with the fuckers yet.
On 23.09 we continued with another attack, breaking onto the territory of another hunting site (Chelyabinsk region). We liberated 18 pheasants from their cages. It was a first action of this kind for our collective, so numerous doubts had been voiced. Birds could raise ruckus and thus alert guards to our presence. But the reality was different: captives cooperated with us and behaved as silently as possible.
It is above and beyond our capabilities to win freedom for human captives taken hostages by the system, but we do what we can in fighting for unconditional freedom for all living beings. So far we are content to have set 18 birds free.
In the same period we planted about 2 scores of seed bombs (apple-trees and maples) on territories where it had been possible to stop clearcuts. We include this fact in our report with explicit aim of demonstrating that it is possible to add new dimension to eco-anarchist and insurrectionary projects, the dimension not of destruction, but creation. Not only do we take pains to destroy the status-quo, we are also actively involved into the creation of another world we know is possible.
On 24.09 we torched a cell phone tower that had doubled as satellite relay. It was situated in Kolomna district (near Moscow), just several dozen yards from human habitats. The flame eventually consumed whole length of the tower and we had been enjoying flashes from exploding equipment for quite some time.
All of the aforementioned acts were carried out in the spirit of solidarity and support of eco-anarchist and insurrectionary anarchist prisoners, suspects and refugees throughout the world within the new wave of decentralized attacks.
Greetings to Friends of Freedom, Russian cell of CCF, BlackBlocg collective and various anonymous groups of anarchist urban guerrilla active in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.
Total support to ITS and CI-MSA in Mexico.
A warm embrace to all insurrectionary groups around the world.

“The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.” – Leonardo Da Vinci
“The way we treat animals is measure of us as human beings. Without animals there will be no humanity. In a world devoid of animal and plant life, human life will cost less than nothing.” – Somebody we wholeheartedly support
Thus on the 9th of May (Victory Day in ex-USSR) we approached local solid waste landfill. Our target was company tasked with capture and disposal of stray animals, cages with captured stray dogs, crematory and company office. It is worth mentioning that company office sported a sign that read “Veterinary”. Animal care service in the middle of garbage heap – civilizational paradox. It would seem that animal care services should work for the benefit of animals, not municipal authorities. (more…)

The second anniversary of the international day of solidarity with Marie Mason, Eric McDavid, and other longterm anarchist prisoners is nearly upon us!

June 11th began as an international day of solidarity with long-term anarchist prisoner Jeff “Free” Luers in 2004. At the time, Jeff was serving 22+ years. Infuriated by the environmental devastation he saw occurring on a global scale, Jeff torched three SUVs at a car dealership in Eugene, Oregon [Click for info on Sadie & Exile, who torched the same dealership in solidarity]. The sentence imposed on him was meant to send a clear message to others who were angered by capitalism’s continued war on the Earth’s ecosystems – and to those who were willing to take action to put a stop to it. Jeff is, after all, not alone in his concerns about climate change, fossil fuels, pollution and genetically modified organisms. (more…)

Update: We just received word that they cannot receive mail at the address we posted. There is no way to send them mail that we know of at this time.
According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, ELF prisoners Sadie and Exile have been transferred to the custody of the Seattle Community Corrections Office after spending more than 6 years in full confinement.
These kind of facilities are half-prisons where the inmates are allowed to go out for work and not much else. (more…)

German language article about a meeting of the Europol, which is a conference against “Euro-Anarchists”, called at the request of the Italian authorities.

Mit immer mehr Maßnahmen verfolgen EU-Institutionen grenzüberschreitende linke Bewegungen. Dem BKA haben es angebliche “Euro-Anarchisten” besonders angetan
Seit 2002 ist die EU-Polizeiagentur für die Verfolgung von Umwelt- und Tierrechtsaktivismus bekannt. Jetzt bekommt die Kriminalisierung internationaler politischer Kampagnen eine neue Facette: Eine Konferenz von Europol nimmt unter anderem verkehrspolitische und antirassistische Aktivisten aufs Korn. Um die Kompetenzen der Behörden zu erweitern, werden die Ausgeforschten mit Absendern von Briefbomben gleichgesetzt. Auch der EU-Geheimdienst ist mit von der Partie.
Europol organisiert eine Konferenz zu anarchistischen Bewegungen in der Europäischen Union. Dies berichtete ein Sprecher der EU-Polizeiagentur letzte Woche in der Ratsarbeitsgruppe “Terrorismus”. Demnach soll die Veranstaltung am 25. April stattfinden. Über den Ort wurden keine Angaben gemacht. Gewöhnlich finden derartige Zusammenkünfte aber am Sitz der Agentur in Den Haag statt. (more…)

2 cell phone towers torched south of Moscow (Rostov-na-Donu direction). The cottage settlement we chose to disable is a popular site among hunters. And not only that. Local residents decided to add to the abuse of wild life and started two commercial fishing resorts. They breed fish to be hunted by tourists.
So in a festive winter spirit (New Year/Xmas and St. Valentine’s Day) we decided to send them a message of love and harmony: 1 tower was left completely burned out, another one – severely damaged.
We used incendiaries with 1.5 liters of gasoline/kerosine each.
Words of solidarity and support to Marco Camenish, members of Indonesian FAI (both in prison and on the run), and Silvia, Costa and Billy.
Our respect and wholehearted support of actions carried out by ITS (Individuals Tending towards the Wild), as well as other animal/ earth liberation collectives.
Long live ALF/ELF!

Anonymous report via bite back:
“SRCL take dogs from Harlan killed because of this sadistic breeding unit. They are burnt like they never existed. Their sad eyes and empty lives ignored by these scumbags.
Hammers were taken to the windows of SRCL UK HQ in Leeds and many left completely smashed. We also left more spraypainted walls.
No justice, just us.”

Received anonymously on Bite Back:
SRCL are a vital supplier to Harlan and take away dead dogs and waste from the breeders for incineration.
In the dead of night we climbed over the fences at the Head Office in Leeds. Walls were spraypainted with slogans against Harlan and vivisection. Locks on the building were superglued shut and damage also done to the bike shed.
Researchers are stuck in their training of years gone by and will not acknowledge that advanced methods are available to replace animal experiments. These are accurate and need to be used to cure diseases such as parkinsons and cancer. Until they are we will continue pushing forward science and bringing about the end of vivisection.
For every bloodsoaked penny you make from this contract we will double it in costs.

Here is a brief report on radical acts of social confrontation in Russia since 9th November and until today. Nowadays we are faced with the pre-revolutionary situation of great people’s disturbance all over the country after parliamentary elections, where United Russia, the party of the ruling bunch of corrupted bureaucrats and oligarchs, took its “victory” due to massive falsification. We all hope here, that this not only beginning of the end of this semi-authoritarian regime, but also the dawn of people’s liberation – libertarian revolutionary struggle. (more…)

Spray paint was used to let everyone know who had been there and why. Animal abusers was spray painted on the trucks and tents.
The exhaust pipes of many of the vehicles including the tractor’s metre long exhaust were filled with expanding foam as an obvious act of sabotage to prevent the vehicles from being used.
We also filled several of the locks of the vehicles with superglue and red paint was thrown over some of the larger vehicles.

On 30/11/2011 we set out to spike forest roads in a hunting resort of Naro-fominsk district (Moscow region).
We can’t find words to describe our happiness at discovering a forest service vehicle parked on a remote trail. It was a mystery for us if they were there on an ambush (they were sort of hard to spot initially), or simply taking a rest away from their bosses (as Russian enforcement agents are prone to do). So we spiked about 2 kms of the road in both directions from the vehicle. We wish them a cold and lonely night in the dark forest.
We felt emotions akin to those every anarchist with molotov in a back pack must have felt when she suddenly came upon an empty police car.
Forest service officers do not protect forests or wildlife, they are there to make it possible for hunters kill animals (for a bribe or due to dubious legislation), they rob tourists during tourist seasons, they turn a blind eye towards tree-cutters.
We salute young men and women from ALF-Moscow for their courageous acts. The struggle continues until total liberation!
A Letter of Solidarity with the Informal Anarchist Federation by Walter Bond, A.L.F Prisoner of War (USA)

Hello, my name is Walter Bond. I am currently serving a prison sentence in the United States for 3 A.L.F. arsons totaling nearly 2 million dollars’ worth of damage. Recently, I read a statement in solidarity with the Conspiracy Cells of Fire attempting to create a real voice for all of us political prisoners and prisoners of war, those of us that have fought and still fight from our prison cells against all civilization. I was happy to see that solidarity was signed with me in that article as well. As a small token of my support please accept the enclosed brief letter of solidarity that I have written for the Informal Anarchist Federation. Animal Liberation, Whatever It May Take! (more…)

“In the early hours of Tuesday morning (27/09/11) McDonalds drive thru in Bedminster was visited and thoroughly smashed, with all it’s windows attacked.
Fuck Mcdonalds and the death culture they perpetuate and symbolise globally, which means:
abuse and mass slaughter for millions of animals caged all their miserable lives, poisonous food, sickness and cancer for humans, mind numbing drudgery and workplace control and discipline for workers treated like slaves, destruction for the environment and of course massive profit for capitalists.
If you thought smashing up Mcdonalds had gone out of anticapitalist fashion, think again. We don’t forget or forgive.
For earth, animal and human liberation.”
