Letter from imprisoned vegan anarchist Osman Evcan (Turkey)

Friday, November 27th, 2015

From ABC Istanbul:

We visited vegan anarchist prisoner Osman Evcan at Kocaeli no:1 high security prison on his 16. Day of hunger strike. It is obvious that in parallel with the elections on November, the state fascism and oppression techniques have a reflection on the prisons. Because of the anarchist, vegan, libertarian ideas that Osman Evcan was fighting for, for many years; the pressure on him increases. Osman Evcan is now faced with F Type Prisons intimidation policies. His access to vegan food is blocked. And he is facing the imposition : “obey or die”. Osman Evcan continues his resistance under worsening conditions of imprisonment. And he made it clear that he is determined to continue his indefinite hunger strike with the will of total freedom. During our visit he was full of hope and told us to not to leave the arenas that organized violence is terrorizing. And he underlined that, the only way is resistance and struggle. And Osman Evcan also builds this hunger strike with a perception of psychological resistance that is against the fear and witch-hunt politics that is wanted to be created and calls us for action and to motivate ourselves for our rights arising from our existence. We shouldn’t let Osman Evcan and ourselves to be destroyed by the wheels of obedience mechanisms based on destroying all kinds of denial and objection. Let’s listen to the call of Osman Evcan who built his life on ideas based on solidarity, struggle and not harming any living being, and these ideas are bringing him to death. We want to share Osman Evcan’s letter on his reasons to start the hunger strike. Until all cages and prisons are destroyed!
ABC İstanbul


About informing public opinion about my indefinite hunger strike:

I am a prisoner in Kocaeli no:1 F type prison. Because I am vegan I don’t eat meat or any kind of animal products and I avoid using any kind of products made out of animal bodies. I chose to live this way because it’s related to animal liberation and animal rights. (more…)

ABC Istanbul: Solidarity with imprisoned vegan anarchist Osman Evcan on hunger strike since Nov 10 (Turkey)

Saturday, November 21st, 2015

UPDATED: Spanish translation – CNA Mexico.

Who is Osman Evcan?

Osman Evcan who was born on 1959 in Samsun is an anarchist prisoner who spent his last 23 years in prison. İn 1992 he was sentenced to 30 years in prison with the charges of being a member of a leftist terrorist group and robbery. He was also imprisoned for 9 years between 1980-1989. Since Osman adopted anarchist ideas in 2003, he also became vegan and supports animal liberation struggles.

Osman Evcan was imprisoned in many different prisons all over the country during his conviction, he built his life fighting against authoritarian violence and especially the violence and oppression which is a systemic part of the prison’s hierarchical structure, and he still continues his fight against prison’s oppressive mentality, without giving an inch, aspiring to the right standards for anarchist, vegan, libertarian individuals.

Osman’s first barnburner act was his hunger strike in 2011 for vegan food to be available in prison which lasted 42 days. During his hunger strike the anarchists, animal liberationists from all over the World and in Turkey supported Osman’s fight to access vegan food in prison. (more…)

Phoenix Project 2015: Attack against animal exploitation company by ‘Arsonist Anarchist Attack – Fire and Consciousness Cell – FAI/IRF’(Chile)

Wednesday, April 15th, 2015

Phoenix Project 2015: Attack against animal exploitation company.
For human, animal and earth liberation (Chile)

Day by day, minute by minute, power is maintained and reproduced in the social relations of all those who accept this order based on the exercise of authority, domination and exploitation, and in all institutions, companies and machines that allow their normal development, never forgetting the voluntary action of power dignitaries and his accomplices: businessmen, politicians, police and citizen that defend power and submission, who strive for the status quo to run it and to be maintained.

When we decide to fight authority in all its forms and expressions, the struggle for total liberation makes sense, because it includes the various scenarios in which the power runs its domain. Our fight does not segment, it integrates, and so, to fight for total freedom implies also fight against State, capital, speciesism, hierarchies, specialization and varied expressions of authoritarianism.

And despite the efforts of the Chilean State to eliminate ideas and practices of revolt, direct attack by anarchic action groups still continues. (more…)

National University of La Plata: Animals liberated, research facility set on fire (Argentina)

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015

received anonymously (translation); click here for video from the action:

“Progress and science have been declared enemies of nature and freedom, managed for those who possess power and want to keep it on their side no matter what it takes. A fundamental part of its development is the separation of humans from the rest of nature, and one of the practices to generate its development is the incarceration and use of animals. We decided to start a fierce campaign against animal testing in particular at the National University of La Plata, where they experiment with cats, guinea pigs and other animals. (more…)

Countering the Congress of the Institute of Animal Technology, 17-20th March (UK)

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Congress 2015 – 17-20th March, Scotland.

“The main purpose of Congress is to introduce Animal Technologists to the latest developments in all aspects of animal based research and technology.”

In the same year that SHAC ceases to exist as a campaign, the Institute of Animal Technology have organised this 3 day event [last year it was held in Blackpool, the year before in the south of England], where people who experiment on animals, in those horrific ways we have all seen from undercover footage, will be able to walk, talk, eat and give lectures freely without any thought to opposition.

The breakdown of the most effective anti-vivisection campaign on the planet appears to have given these people a “free-for-all” mentality, this conference is quite possibly party time for the oppressor. A celebration of animal research, a way to say they have won the war against animal rights campaigners. What else could this openness of a 3 day conference be exactly? (more…)

PDF: Il Modelo SHAC

Saturday, October 11th, 2014

PDF: Il Modello Shac

Italian language. Introduction in English:

“Is the SHAC model relevant also to other struggles and to different
contexts other than the animal liberation movement? At what conditions?
What are its advantages and flaws?

Today that one of the most influential pressure campaigns, globally, of
the animal liberation movement came to an end, it’s time to reflect
about the positive and negative aspects of this model of activism and
militancy, which nearly managed to put on its knees a vivisection
corporation, but in the end suffered the strikes of a harsh repression,
that the same movement wasn’t ready to face.

A model based on the diversity of tactics aiming at the same goal, the
closure of a corporation or of a torture place, through the attack
against its clients, suppliers, shareholders and all the other companies
to allow its business. What is undeniable is that this campaign couldn’t
get all the victories it got if it wasn’t supported by the hundreds of
direct actions (sabotages, liberations, arsons, threats…) done during
the last 10 years by the ALF, the Militant Forces against HLS and by
other groups or individuals determined to get on to action.”

Cartago: Incendiary attack against butcher shop by ‘Savages of the Earth – ELF/ALF/FAI/FRI’ (Costa Rica)

Saturday, September 27th, 2014

via contrainfo:

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…)

Interview with the Assembly for Antispeciesist Action, Athens, by comrades in Spain (Fiera)

Friday, September 26th, 2014

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.

We dedicate and remember with integrity, through this action and these words Comrade Avalon*, direct action activist of earth and animal liberation.

For now no more to say … that’s all friends.

Abyssal core of action


* Avalon, ‘William C. Rogers’, was a comrade of the Earth Liberation Front in the United States who suicided during the investigation of the FBI Operation Backfire, known as the ‘Greenscare’. Avalon made a statement of escape on the night he died, mailing it to several friends, and asphyxiated by a plastic bag over his head. He defended his choice as a return to the heart of life and death, and from where the agents of the law can never reach us. Honor and dignity to Avalon, who through his example showed courage and determination in the face of the enemy, he who refused the trial and prison process and made his choice in an impossible situation of betrayal. Let the blood shed from the snitches and the collaborators who still live, those who ratted on their comrades of the Earth Liberation Front. Fire and rage against each and every cage.

“To my friends and supporters to help them make sense of all these events that have happened so quickly: Certain human cultures have been waging war against the Earth for millennia. I chose to fight on the side of bears, mountain lions, skunks, bats, saguaros, cliff rose and all things wild. I am just the most recent casualty in that war. But tonight I have made a jail break — I am returning home, to the Earth, to the place of my origins.” Bill, 12/21/05 (winter solstice)
