Statement from Walter Bond recorded by the North American Animal Liberation Press Office on 11/15/17
“Since my arrival in Greenville two-and-a-half years ago, my
communications with the world have been made incredibly difficult and at
times impossible. I have been repeatedly denied books, magazines,
letters and pictures. It’s standard operating procedure that my mail –
be it my email or snail mail — is habitually days, weeks and even
months late. It is not at all uncommon for my mail, both incoming and
outgoing, to simply never arrive.” (more…)

We wanted to dedicate this action to all our kidnapped friends, or those who have been kidnapped once, by setting fire to 4 trucks from one of the biggest milk companys in finland named valio. The action took place in a city named tampere in the early morning hours of this tuesday. Many of our cell have wanted to target this company for a long time. We think that it is not necessary to explain too much the reason of our selection: the milk industry has a long history of destruction, cruelty and torture on this planet, its ecosystem and their habitants. Like our friends the cows and the forests. Who are cruelly abused and murdered or destroyed by the production of milk.”

During the first week of October, 2017, persons unknown were able to enter the University of Chile’s science faculty at the Juan Gomez Milla Campus on Macul and Grecia avenues.
After having previously identified a laboratory for animal experimentation, the unknown persons entered it, released the animals imprisoned there (mainly rodents) and destroyed the infrastructure of the lab along with all the ‘research’ documents that were inside it. The unknown persons managed to escape without being detected or identified.
During the days that followed, it was confirmed that 120 laboratory rodents were released, they were being experimented on to test the physiological effects of climate change. The ‘Institutional Committee for the Care and Use of Animals’ (CICUA) – the name of the organization responsible for approving, supervising and certifying the use of animals for experimentation – stated that the animals were not being abused, and also noted that “most of the released rodents suffer from afflictions and will not survive for long since they require the assistance of humans for their well-being and survival”.

Q-Where are you from?
I live in Turkey.
Q-What organization(s) are you involved with?
The North American Animal Liberation Press Office where I’m an Advisor and Liaison for Europe. Also, I’m a Journalist affiliated with New York City based R9 Media.
Q-Why are you an activist? How did you get involved in the fight for
I’m an Animal Liberation Activist because animals are the most oppressed beings on the planet. They suffer and endure so much pain at the hands of and service towards humanity. Worldwide there are factory farms, fur farms, leather factories, slaughterhouses, circuses and zoos. All of which imprison them and subject them to violence and exploit them for goods, resources and entertainment. They are slaughtered for food, clothing, accessories, cosmetics, medical testing and medical products. This is unacceptable in the twenty-first century. Animals have the right to live free of suffering and exploitation at the hands of humans. Fighting for the freedom of animals is my fight. I, and in fact all people, have an ethical responsibility towards animals. They cannot fight for their own freedom so the responsibility falls to Activists. They must be liberated from their slavery and I’m in solidarity with them. I’m fighting for their freedom. (more…)

A cold night, rain and thundering far away. Totally wet sitting nearby the enclosure and waiting until the patrol comes.
It’s safe. We can go.
We know this place, so the rescue is done quickly.
We have took four chickens and going away. Four chickens whose world was changed in a few minutes.
Few words from the anonymous team member
For the first time in my life I can see how the animals live in the factory farms.
There is a very strictly scheduled mode. Light clock timer determining night and day, right now imitating night by darkness. I am shining with the flash-lamp over the hall where hundreds of chickens survive – sentenced to death alive. There’s no time to think about daily cruelty and torture. It’s time to take action.
From today, rescue is an indispensable part of my life. (more…)

“…with simple materials we sabotaged the locks so that the owners of this so-called ‘job’ can have it clear in their heads that there are subjects that do not want and do not respect the commercialization of humiliation, suffering and death of animals.” – Javier Recabarren affiliate cell of ALF
The ALF assumes the low-scale sabotage committed during the night of July 28 in the periphery of Santiago against 2 butcher shops, 1 private dwelling (butcher owner’s house), 1 access fence into the butcher and other shops, and lastly, 1 shop selling chicken.
The flow of commercialization in the shops selling dead animals was interrupted as we filled tens of their locks with liquid steel, which the bastard owners discovered later that morning with surprise. In the following days, we left a message on paper, making it very clear why this action was committed.

Desde el accionar anárquico y confrontacional a toda forma de
dominación, es que nos dirigimos en sigilo la tarde-noche de este sábado
12 a la tienda “Premium Pet” ubicada en Toesca 1844, pleno centro de
Santiago y con sencillos materiales(1) saboteamos los candados para que
los dueños de este “supuesto trabajo” les quede en la cabeza que hay
sujetos que no quieren y no respetan la comercialización de humillación,
sufrimiento y muerte de animales. (more…)

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.
