“In the run up to Christmas Air France-KLM are running an advertising campaign in the UK so we gave them some festive decoration.

Paint bombs were thrown at a number of them and slogans spraypainted denouncing their involvement in transporting animals for vivisection.

Là où jamais vous êtes, nous sommes. Là où jamais vous pensez vous pouvez se cacher, nous sommes suivants.”

Animal Liberation Front

“The staff at the Beyond Retro head office won’t of been expecting the surprise that awaited them on thursday morning on Penn street in London.

With red paint splashed and sprayed on their walls doors and shutters there could be no doubt why us activists visited them.

And fyi the last word was going to be ‘yours’: as in up. We will come back to finish the sentence if you continue to sell fur.”

‘Ave a LARF – London AR Front

ALF

November 22, 2011

“While zippos circus were holding shows in Richmond, London we visited their site one morning.

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.

The message should be clear by now zippos. Stop using animals in your shows or the actions will continue.”

Eco-anarchists spike forest roads in Moscow region (Russia)

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

325 receives and transmits:

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.

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…)

Earth Liberation Front Russia – Informal Anarchist Federation / International Network claim series of attacks in Solidarity with Marie Mason, Eric McDavid & Long-term Anarchist Prisoners (Russia)

Monday, June 13th, 2011

325 received the following communique from Earth Liberation Front Russia – Informal Anarchist Federation / International Network of Action & Solidarity, about a series of attacks in conjunction with the 11th June International Day of Solidarity with Marie Mason, Eric McDavid and Long-term Anarchist Prisoners. Strength and force to all those imprisoned for their ideas, words and actions of resistance – We will never forget our prisoners of war. For a global insurrectional network based on revolutionary solidarity, direct action and subversion:

Solidarity with Marie Mason and Eric McDavid – ELF actions in Moscow region of Russia

“For me solidarity is a constant proposal to struggle, is the continuation and the development of the revolutionary action for which the comrade was captured” – Gerasimos Tsakalos, Conspiracy of Cells of Fire

01.06 we torched electrical measuring and control devices in 2 underground service booths of a water communication system that brings hot water to a military intelligence site in Butovskiy forest. To add to the fact that this infrastructure serves military personnel, more than 800 trees were cut during earthworks for this water supply line to even appear in the forest. To hamper service brigades further, we also spiked the road they use for maintaining the system.

05.06 we torched an excavator at a highway construction site west of Moscow (Volokolamsk direction).

06.06 and 10.06 we expropriated some construction equipment and destroyed geologists’ measurement posts in the glades of Butovskiy forest.

11.06 we broke into yet another underground service booth and put to fire all the digital and analog devices and tools inside.

We dedicate these attacks to Marie Mason and Eric McDavid. We don’t have the honour of personal acquaintance with them, but their dedication to protecting our Planet and conscious choices they’ve made not only to act, but also to stand their ground in the wake of state repressions, inspire us and help us to continue on our path.

For Earth Liberation! For Human Liberation!

50 people arrested in Tokyo High Court May 20, 2011 (Japan)

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

The routine of the modern totalitarian state: arresting 50 people that dared to question the decision of a high-court judge, the same miserable git who forced a compulsory purchase order on a farmer for the sake of industrial development.

May 20, in the Tokyo High Court, 50 people, including the Secretary General of the Farmers’ League against Narita Airport Construction, Koji Kitahara and almost all of the farmers who attended the court this day, the president of Zengakuren (All-Japan Federation of Student Autonomous Bodies), Oda Yosuke and other students and workers were arrested.

After less than one minute “explanation of the reasons”, Judge Shigeki Inoue issued a provisional execution order to forcibly expropriate a building of the Farmers’ League. The farmers and their supporters protested the ruling and demanded to meet the judge. Instead of responding their demand, the court called the police and made them arrest 50 people.

Statement by the Rescue Committee about the Crackdown on 5.7 Anti-Nukes Demo (Japan)

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

On 7th May 2011, more than 15000 protesters joined May 7th, No Nukes Demonstration!!!!!, which was held at Shibuya, Tokyo. The march was fabulous as diversity of participants gave their voices of no nukes heard. However, the police hindered the demonstration in deploying large amount of riot police which divided the demonstrators into smaller blocks. Due to riot police distraction, it took three hours for all the demonstrators to start walking under the rain. Riot police often stopped the march by surrounding the marching blocks. A list of malicious acts of the police could be endless. Many of participants reported on Internet how riot police were evil to the protesters. If no police distraction, the protesters would have fully enjoyed freedom of demonstration. (more…)

Call for an escalated Anti-Genetic Engineering Struggle from Silvia, Costa, Billy, and Marco on hunger strike May 1 to 28 (Switzerland)

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

From Culmine, translated by War on Society:

From May 1 to 28 we undertake a new hunger strike on relays of seven days each, as a new joint initiative to provide continuity for the links and relationships already intertwined with other strikes and many initiatives of solidarity and struggles outside of prison, and also in response to attempts by the Swiss Federal Prosecutor and by international repression to denigrate, isolate and stamp out the struggle.

Attempts that will always be in vain in the face of our determination not to break the thread that binds ourselves to you comrades outside but instead continue to weave together, as part of the revolutionary movement, the movement of Earth and Animal Liberation. (more…)
