According to local newspapers, a fishing building was set alight on the 10th of July in Ancerville, France. The fire brigade arrived to a very active fire and was unable to stop the destruction.

First investigations point at arson, with the door of the building having been forced in and the fire started against a wall. The local fishing association said they were “left revolted by the gratuitous nastiness of the act”.

ACCOUNTANTS FOR SLAUGHTERHOUSE TARGETTED.

28th July, Tunbridge Wells, UK .

anonymous report, via BiteBack Magazine:

“This is BSR Bespoke Accountants in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

They handle the finances for the scummy slaughterhouse Forge Farm meats that was blockaded almost a year ago by the group #smashspeciesism. Since that slaughterhouse occupation things have been quiet at Forge Farm and we don’t like it. The pressure on abusers mustn’t happen in a vacuum: to stop them we have to apply pressure from every avenue. We want all businesses that affiliate themselves to Forge Farm to cease immediately and if they don’t this is a call to action to you, reading this, to start coming for them. Phone lines blocking, hacking websites, gluing locks, smashing windows whatever you like. And you can start with their accountants. In Tunbridge wells. It’s a quiet street and there was a fancy car on the drive as well.

FORGE: THIS ONE IS FROM THE SHEEP”

WRITE TO PRISONERS TODAY!

Heartcure has organised an online prisoner letter writing day today and we should all show up for it. All you need is some paper and a pen and some ideas to write to prisoners.

– But why should I write to prisoners? 

Because the prison system is yet another capitalist tool to silence and put away those who do not fit into the standard of productivity that the current system wants to. Because activists are locked up in order to stop them from achieving change. Because solidarity is probably the strongest weapon you possess. 

– What if I don’t know what to write? 

This is a fair concern. As a rule of thumb, don’t write about anything illegal. Don’t talk about the prisoner’s case unless they do so. Don’t assume their innocence or guilt in relation to their case. Do talk about mundane things that are difficult to experience in prison. Going to walk your dog, a walk in the park, seeing sheep relax at a sanctuary… You can also read about them to learn what their interests are and then send articles about those interests. 

– I wrote to a prisoner once but I never received an answer! 

That can happen. There are many reasons, from screws not allowing letters to arrive to the person in prison, to lack of money to send letters, many things could’ve happened. Remember that you don’t write letters for you, but for them. Opening a window to your reality can be the best five minutes for someone inside of prison. 

– But what do you mean when you say “prisons are for burning”? 

We would 100% recommend you to read “What about the rapists”. It is a free zine on prison abolition and restorative justice that might help you understand a lot better why the prison system is broken, useless and should be left in the past. 

– Is there any other way I can help?

Yes! You can donate to prisoner support groups like Project FANG. You can visit the support websites of political prisoners and see if they have a book Wishlist to buy a book for them. You can organise local letter writing events and send a bunch of letters together as well as discuss with your community why prison should be abolished. You can. Visit your nearest prison and organise a noise demo to let people inside know that they are not forgotten. 

The concrete walls, the bars, the thick windows, the razor blade wire, the militarised workers.. They are all part of the same system that profits from criminality. Prisons are full of capitalist enterprises. From communications to cleaning and food, prisons are a business. Capitalist enterprises profit from the justice system deeming someone unfit to be in society.

Prisons are a muzzle for those who dare to speak up. They are a box for those who did not know how to survive within the parameters of capitalist law. They are the punishment for folks with mental health issues. They are one of the main root problems of this society and we should weed it out to build a better world. 

UNTIL EVERY PRISON IS A FUCKING LIBRARY. 

EMPTY ALL CAGES.

WALTER BOND AND HIS ECO-FASCIST TRAJECTORY.

We first feel the need to apologise. For the past three years we have vehemently supported Walter Bond through his last stretch in prison. In multiple occasions Walter has made us question if that support was deserved due to certain texts or language used within the texts, but every time the support group has explained, one way or another, how Walter was being misinterpreted. We have supported Walter with money, we have collected letters, asked folks to donate, to share the word and to write to him. We’ve recommended his book as a form of raising funds for him in prison. 

In light of the most recent actions, we feel the need to apologise to everybody who has felt our influence and supported Walter, as there is now no doubt that Walter Bond has welcomed eco-fascism. 

At the beginning of this year, and with a few months left on his prison sentence, we asked people to send letters of support and help him keep sane and safe until he was released. Not too long after, we received the complaint of two different folks who had done exactly that and received correspondence back that contained Nazi propaganda on vivisection. 

Our first reaction was of anger and upset, specially after having read his open letter “rejecting anarchism” a few months prior to this event. We contacted the support group, who after a lot of back and forth with Walter reassured us that those nazi drawings had been given to Walter by some nazi prisoners, trying to lure him into the ideology. It was an odd and lousy excuse but, being aware that he was about to come out of prison and that he had spent a decade locked up (and understanding how much damage that can do to someone’s mental health), we decided to keep quiet about it. We were wrong, very wrong, and we are now trying to mend our mistake. 

Walter came out of prison and we dedicated about two sentences to let folks know that he had been released, when normally we would mark the release of a prisoner as a massive celebration. Yesterday, someone contacted us with a website run by Walter and another animal liberation ex prisoner, Camille. The website in question is called “Vegan Final Solution”. 

For anyone unaware of what the “Final Solution” means, the final solution was official nazi code name for the murder of all jewish folk within reach. 

We were horrified to see this and decided to email them questioning about the nazi drawings sent from prison and the new website’s name. Walter answered back twice, dodging the questions. This were the last two emails we exchanged: 

“Walter,

That does not answer our main question. Why would anyone choose to use “The final solution” as an animal rights name knowing full well what the final solution has embodied historically for the national socialist
party of germany? 

UA.” 

——————— 

“I’m sorry that you don’t feel I have adequately answered your questions……. Life is like that sometimes. Have a good one 🙂

Walter”.

Those are all the details we can give you. The website in question is full of ecofascism, promoting the murder of anyone who isn’t actively fighting for animal liberation. 

We debated making this public for multiple reasons. Speak nothing but kindness was important, but warning people of the potentially dangerous nature of those politics outweighed it. Not wanting to give a single ounce of promotion to that website was also important to us, but we believe folks are sound enough to understand why eco fascism is wrong. 

Let’s never forget that animal liberation, earth liberation and human liberation are the same. 

Nazi scum, fuck off.

SEVEN FOIE GRAS FARM DUCKS RESCUED.

3rd July, France.

received anonymously via BiteBack Magazine:

“Around July 3, 2020, in France, we, antispeciesist activists, managed to exfiltrate 7 ducks from a foie gras farm and place them where they will never be considered as anything but people again.

We were dropped off near the farm where these ducks were kept. The driver then drove away with the car, because parking for a long time in the middle of a usually deserted road at night we knew that we risked attracting the attention of a police patrol or other people who could have passed by.

We then crossed crop fields to avoid passing in front of the house of the humans who are exploiting them …
When we finally arrived at the place where the duck shelters are, we came face to face with… nothingness. The shelters were empty… There was no noise. No more presence. The shelters we were targeting were those of the ducks who were not yet force-fed… and obviously we were too late.

We wondered if we should go and see the force-feeding building, which was much closer to the house of their oppressors. As we walked towards it, we could also see that one of their windows was lit. The operation then seemed difficult.

Looking around, despite the almost complete darkness of the night, we thought we saw something that looked like a shelter, further away from the others.

As we got closer we started to smell the droppings, typical of bird breeding. When we inspected the door to see if it was locked and not equipped with an alarm system, we heard the flapping of the wings of something like 40 birds panicking.

We finally found them. Well… those who had not yet been subjected to the force-feeding torture or the horror of their killing.

Several of us went inside to catch the 7 ducks to whom we had previously found a family. They then had no idea that we would take them to a place where they would no longer be considered anything other than what they are : people who should have the right not to be exploited, dominated, tortured, or killed needlessly.

We almost had to jump on them because they were so suspicious, strong and absolutely not ready to cooperate. It is a shame that this is not enough in the face of their oppressors and that there is a need for activists like us to get them out of their hell…

After catching everyone, we contacted the person in charge of the transport by walkie-talkie so that he/she would come back to pick us up at the meeting point.

On the way back, the ducks were terrified and glued to each other to reassure themselves. Only we knew that afterwards it would be better for them. Only we knew that they were part of those who would live, opposed to all those who were, are and will still be in farms and slaughterhouses after this day, until the abolition of Speciesism.
For all human and non-human people, we pass this message to you : Do the same, be the ones that act and fight for a true social justice for all!”

French:

“Aux alentours du 3 juillet 2020, en France, nous, activistes antispécistes, avons réussi à exfiltrer 7 canards d’un élevage de foie gras et les placer dans un lieu où ils ne seront plus jamais considérés comme autre chose que des personnes.

Nous avons été déposé-es à proximité de l’élevage où ces canards étaient détenus. La personne qui conduit est ensuite repartie plus loin avec la voiture, car en stationnant longtemps au milieu d’une route habituellement déserte en pleine nuit nous savions que nous risquions d’attirer l’attention d’une patrouille de police ou d’autres personnes qui auraient pu passer par là.

Nous avons ensuite traversé des champs pour éviter de passer devant la maison des humain-es qui les exploitent…

Quand nous sommes enfin arrivé-es à l’endroit où se trouvent les abris des canards, nous sommes tombé-es nez à nez… avec le néant. Les abris étaient vides… Il n’y avait plus aucun bruit. Plus aucune présence. Les abris que nous visions étaient ceux des canards qui n’étaient pas encore en phase de gavage… et visiblement, nous étions arrivé-es trop tard.

Nous nous sommes posé-es la question si nous devions aller voir le batiment de gavage, qui lui était beaucoup plus proche de la maison de leurs oppress-eurs.euses. En nous avançant, nous pouvions d’ailleurs apercevoir qu’une de leur fenêtre était allumée. L’opération semblait alors difficile.

En regardant autour de nous, malgré le noir quasi-complet de la nuit, nous avons cru apercevoir quelque-chose qui ressemblait à un abri, davantage excentré par rapport aux autres.

En nous rapprochant nous commençions à sentir les odeurs de fientes, typique des élevages d’ois-eaux.elles. Lorsque nous avons inspecté la porte pour voir si elle n’était pas verrouillée et qu’elle n’était pas équipée d’un système d’alarme, nous avons entendu les battements d’ailes d’une bonne quarantaine d’ois-eaux.elles pris-es de panique.

Nous les avions enfin trouvés. Enfin… ceux qui n’avaient pas encore subi la torture du gavage ou l’horreur de leur mise à mort.

Plusieurs d’entre-nous sommes rentré-es à l’intérieur pour attraper les 7 canards à qui nous avions préalablement trouvé une famille. Ils n’avaient alors aucune idée que nous les emmenerions vers un lieu où ils ne seraient plus considérés comme autre chose que ce qu’ils sont : des personnes qui devraient avoir le droit de ne pas être exploitées, dominées, torturées, ou tuées sans nécessité.

Nous avons quasiment dû leur sauter dessus tellement ils étaient méfiants, forts et absolument pas prêts à se laisser faire. Il est bien dommage que cela ne suffise pas face à leurs oppress-eurs.euses et qu’il y ait besoin d’activistes comme nous pour les sortir de leur enfer…

Après avoir attrapé tout le monde, nous avons contacté par talkie walkie la personne chargée du transport pour qu’elle revienne nous chercher au point de rendez-vous.

Sur le trajet du retour, les canards étaient terrifiés et se collaient les uns aux autres pour se rassurer. Seuls nous savions qu’après ce serait mieux pour eux. Seuls nous savions qu’ils faisaient partis de ceux qui vivraient, contrairement à tous ceux qui étaient, sont et seront encore dans les élevages et les abattoirs après ce jour, et ce, jusqu’à l’abolition du Spécisme.

Pour toutes les personnes humaines et non-humaines, nous vous passons ce message : Faites de même, soyez celles et ceux qui agissent et luttent pour une réelle justice sociale pour tout-es !”

BUTCHER SHOP WINDOWS SMASHED.

21st June, Toulouse France.

VIA: Attaque

ENG:

“A butcher shop called Direct Viandes in Toulouse received a few hammer blows in its windows and a tag suggesting they eat their own hands instead of eating innocent beings.

Death to speciesism.”

FR:

“Le magasin Direct Viandes sur Toulouse a eu le droit à quelques coups de marteau dans ses vitrines et un tag leur suggérant de bouffer leur propre main plutôt que d’innocentes personnes esclavagisées.

Mort au spécisme”

UNIVERSITY OF IOWA RAID, 2004.


On the 14th of November, 2004, ALF activists entered the University of Iowa’s psychology department and ensured that animals escaped the suffering whilst causing as much economic damage as they possibly could.

All 401 animals (88 mice and 313 rats) from the 3rd floor of the University of Iowa were taken. Computers, surgical equipment and paperwork was also destroyed in other laboratories in different floors.

This video, used as propaganda for the action, includes news reports as well as footage from the raid and showcases the damage caused as well as the animals being boxed up for transport.

The ALF activists wrote on their report: “This was not thoughtless vandalism but a methodical effort to cripple the UI psychology department’s animal research. Only equipment in rooms where animals were confined and tortured were targeted. Only computers belonging to or used in the work of vivisectors were destroyed. Only documents of animal researchers waere doused in acid. The acid a deliberately chosen paper dissolving agent. Our goal is total abolition of all animal exploitation. Achieved in the short term by delivering the 401 animals from UI’s chamber of hell. And in the extended term by shutting down the labs through the erasing of research and equipment used in the barbaric practice of vivisection. The entire raid was a careful and deliberate 5-pronged assault on UI’s animal research.”.

They sign the report with: “Let this message be clear to all who victimize the innocent: We’re watching. And by axe, drill, or crowbar — we’re coming through your door.

Stop or be stopped.

A.L.F.”

You can read the whole report and see almost 200 photos from the action on BiteBack Magazine’s website.
