Sabotaje a tienda de animales – Por un Diciembre Negro (Chile)

Monday, December 14th, 2015

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…)

Osman Evcan on Hunger Strike: Anarchists and animal liberationists went to Kandıra F type prison (Turkey)

Wednesday, December 9th, 2015

From ABC Istanbul:

Anarchists and animal liberationists went to Kandıra F type prison, Osman Evcan is on hunger strike since 10th November with various demands. Also Osman Evcan’s cellmate Hasan Çınar started indefinite hunger strike 3 days ago to support Osman Evcan. On 5th December we went in front of Kandıra F Type Prison with our flags, banners, slogans, drums and torches to show solidarity with Vegan anarchist prisoner Osman Evcan. Our voices passed over the thick walls, and we brought hope to our comrade. Osman is refusing to eat with his own will, using his body, his only weapon to fight. He is resisting and becoming the justice himself. We screamed out loud for the animals, for the World and people,
for the freedom of the prisoners:

Fire to the prisons!
Demolish the prisons, freedom to prisoners!

We made this demo happen to show that we are not scared of the chains of the government capturing people, animals and earth. Our fight will continue against the systems will to include us to its decay.

Everyone who is fighting to abolish oppression is a freedom fighter. We will continue our struggle until the political isolation of Osman Evcan (who is supporting total freedom, and who is fighting against repression and torture for his anarchist ideals) are over. Prison systems are coffins built to control the majority, and to pacify masses for the minorities interest.

Freedom for Osman Evcan!

Until all cages and prisons are destroyed!

Diciembre Negro: Sabotaje a tienda de animales exóticos (Chile)

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015



UPDATE: ENGLISH VERSION

Junto con educar e informar,(…)salirte de las leyes del sistema
capital,(…) rayando y saboteando empresas(…)no pensamos solo en el
animal sino en todo el ecosistema que cada día está más mal. Si debemos
destrozar las propiedades de aquellos que sustentan la explotación
animal no dudaremos en usar todas nuestras armas, incluso quemar el
siniestro lugar.

(“Liberación Animal”, canción del compañero Sebastián “Angry”
Oversluij).

En la sociedad del capital y la autoridad, el especismo es uno de los
pilares en que se sostiene la dominación, materializándose en relaciones
de poder que transforman a los animales en objetos para el consumo
humano bajo la modalidad de alimentación, vestimenta, entretención,
experimentación o como mascotas bajo la propiedad de una/un humana/o.

Insertando el anti especismo como parte de la lucha contra toda forma de
autoridad, una vida cotidiana alejada de los productos de origen animal
tiene como complemento inevitable la acción directa contra los/as
explotadores/as y mercaderes de animales.

Así, rechazando toda lógica reformista o victimista sobre la liberación
animal, saboteamos la noche del 01 de Diciembre la tienda de animales
“Exotic”, sellando con acero líquido los candados que permiten el acceso
al lugar donde las/os animales son vendidos como mercancía. En el lugar,
ubicado en Avenida Departamental, dejamos una nota para no dejar dudas
sobre el contenido de nuestra acción. Al salir el sol, sus dueñas/os no
podrán abrir su negocio basado en las jaulas y el cautiverio de
individuos no humanos, cumpliendo nuestra acción su objetivo: entorpecer
el normal funcionamiento de la opresión sobre nuestras vidas y las de
los/as animales.
No queremos leyes más compasivas con los animales ni jaulas más grandes.
Nuestra acción es expresión del deseo de la destrucción de toda forma de
encierro y dominación.

Respondemos de esta forma a la invitación realizada desde Grecia por los
compañeros Panagiotis Argyrou y Nikos Romanos, tomando parte en un
Diciembre Negro en cual nos interesa intensificar la acción transgresora
antiautoritaria y las redes de complicidad entre compañeros/as, buscando
proyectarlas más allá de un momento o mes específico.

Aportar a revitalizar en nuestro propio territorio la acción anti
especista es también nuestra forma de solidaridad con el prisionero
anarquista y vegano Osmar Evcan, en huelga de hambre desde el 10 de
noviembre en la prisiones del Estado de Turquía, quien pone en riesgo su
integridad poniendo su cuerpo como arma exigiendo la restitución de su
alimentación vegana al interior de la prisión.

Que la tensión anti especista se haga visible en el accionar anárquico
de ofensiva a través de células de compañeras/os que se organizan y
actúan sin jerarquías, afilando convicciones combinadas con la
creatividad, la cautela y diferentes medios y materiales para golpear
múltiples puntos de la red de la dominación.

SOLIDARIDAD CON MÓNICA CABALLERRO, FRANCISCO SOLAR Y TODXS LOS /AS
PRESOS/AS ANÁRQUICOS /AS DE CHILE Y EL MUNDO.

MEMORIA INSURRECTA A DOS AÑOS DE LA CAIDA EN COMBATE DEL COMPAÑERO
SEBASTIAN OVERSLUIJ.

LIBERACIÓN ANIMAL.LIBERACIÓN HUMANA.LIBERACIÓN DE LA TIERRA.

¡¡¡ABAJO LAS JAULAS DE LAS SOCIEDAD CIVILIZADA!!!
¡¡¡SABOTAJE, BOICOT Y ATAQUE DIRECTO CONTRA TODAS/OS LAS/OS
EXPLOTADORAS/OS!!!

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…)

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.

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…)
