A MESSAGE FROM THE ANIMAL LIBERATION PRESS OFFICE.

We’ve received a release from the ALFpo that we believe should be published and shared as far and wide as possible. It relates to the multiple actions the ALF has taken in relation to the murder of Regan Russell.

The press officer’s job is to be able to talk on behalf of ALF activists towards the media, newspapers and TV, explaining why folks would take action and keeping the activists safe.

Read it, share it, let folks know.

“FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

On the morning of Friday, June 19, Canadian animal rights activist Regan Russell was hit by a truck and murdered whilst peacefully protesting against a slaughterhouse.

The truck which killed her was carrying the very pigs whose plight she was attempting to draw attention to.

Despite being clearly visible to the driver, who accelerated towards her, and continued to drive even as her body was torn in half, no one has been arrested for the crime.

As a response, Animal Liberation Front (ALF) activists across the world—including the UK–have taken matters into their own hands in order to bring justice to Regan, and to the animals she lost her life trying to defend. Some of the actions taken are liberations; aimed at immediately changing the world for the animals involved. Regan wanted to save animals, and the ALF are directly saving animals from a suffering beyond our imagination. Other actions are acts of economic sabotage, aimed at making the meat industry unprofitable. We live in a world where a plant based diet is readily available, is healthier, tastes delicious, and would save the entire planet. If those involved in animal agriculture will not shift voluntarily to plant based production, then the ALF aims to force them there.

On June 19th, the day Regan was murdered, fifty turkeys being bred for Christmas were saved from a farm in the south east of England. In their communique, the ALF said: “We want to dedicate this action to Regan Russell, murdered under the truck wheels in front of a Toronto slaughterhouse, and we are hoping from our comrades worldwide to wake up to the reality that animal liberation is a war. Regan, like Jill or Mike, fell martyr in the fight for animal liberation.” Jill Phipps and Mike Hill were both animal rights activists, also killed whilst peacefully protesting (live exports and hunting respectively). Full report (including pictures):

On June 21st, Randal Parker’s abattoir near Andover, Hampshire, was attacked, with the tires of fifteen vehicles being slashed. The ALF claimed: “As we worked, we could hear the pigs inside the building, crying out as they await a death worse than our wildest nightmares. Our remorse that we had to leave them behind is only equal to our remorse that we could not have disabled the truck which murdered Regan.” Full report:

On June 22nd, Choice Cuts, a butcher’s shop in Brighton was attacked. The ALF stated: “We dedicate this action to Regan Russell, who thought doing something was better than nothing. We will remember you, the struggle continues and we will not let up.” Full report (including pictures):

Also on June 22nd, in the East Midlands, 14 chicks were saved from a factory farm where they would have been killed for meat. Full report (including pictures and video):

On June 25th, a butcher’s shop and livestock haulage firm were targeted in Alberta, Canada. The ALF declared: “It is time that we send a clear message to exploiters. Your time is up. Your reign of terror will come to an end. We will burn your slaughterhouses, we will destroy your death trucks and we will make your lives a living nightmare.” Full report (including video):

It is assumed such actions will continue, in memory of Regan and to bring about Total animal liberation.

Please note, the ALF Press Office is not the ALF. We have no further knowledge on these actions beyond that which is printed in the communiques. We did not carry them out, and we don’t know who did.”

THIRTY FIVE DUCKS RESCUED FROM A SHOOT, INFRASTRUCTURE DESTROYED.

25th June, Ireland.

Received anonymously via email:

“In the early hours of the 25th June 2020, ALF Ireland members entered the country estate of Castledillon which resides in County Armagh.
This estate is used as a duck-hunt excursion by the family who own the land. There is one area within the estate in which ducks are encouraged to ‘house’ themselves, so that they are in the right locations in the day time for people to shoot. 

The ALF Ireland activists took it upon themselves to relocate the thirty-five ducks that were in the vicinity at that point in time, but believe there are possibly more than 200 residing in the estate. These ducks were then moved to a private pre-agreed location in which they have their own lake, free from maniacs pointing guns at them. 

Two hunt huts were also gutted and dismantled on the grounds of the property. 
The Castledillon Estate have their own website in which people can book hunt excursions on their land – in season – in which we would like to see taken down or dismantled in the same way their physical attributes on the estate were dismantled.

The ALF Ireland activists will not cease their actions against the Castledillon Estate until all the ducks are relocated and the owners cease using animals to satisfy people’s blood lust. 

Until all are free, none are free. Tiochfaidh ár lá.”

PRISONERS’ OVERALL UPDATE + URGENT ACTION NEEDED!

Let’s talk about prisoners because it is really needed and you have some homework to do.

To start with, we want to mention that Walter Bond has been released to prison and is now at a halfway home after a very lengthy prison sentence for arson.

Multiple folks have asked for an update on Peter’s situation. We have talked with his support team, who on advice of the lawyers have recommended to wait before sharing any more information. Once there is an address or a fundraiser we will be sharing it, but for now, we simply have to wait. The support team has created a Facebook page for his prison support specifically and you can follow it over on Facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/SupportPeterJanssen/

Marius’ appeal to release because of COVID risks was denied on the basis that he has “ties with the ELF”. Send him a letter. Talk to him about nature.

Finally, we need to talk about Eric King. He has been continuously framed in prison by the screws, he has had nazis thrown at him by the administration to beat him up and on the 18th of June, an unknown prison guard kicked the shit out of him in the showers. He needs out of that prison for his own security.

His support team are asking for phone calls to put pressure. You can find the telephone numbers on the linked website. If you are not from the USA, there is something else you can (and should) do. Eric is facing extra 10 years on multiple fabricated cases just because he is an anarchist and an antifascist and the prison guards are fucking nazis. Send some cash to his legal funds. Just a dollar or two, we don’t care. Just send some cash so he can get legal help and a lawyer can ensure he is moved away from the prison he is at before some fascist scumbag kills him or orders some other fascist prisoner to kill him. Do anything and everything you can to help him survive.

BANDANAS AVAILABLE + WILDFIRE MAGAZINE!

Let’s get the bandanas out of the way first shall we? You’ve asked for them over, and over, and over again, so there are now bandanas back on stock on the website alongside patches. Last time they sold out hours after uploading them. Go check if there still are any left. They are handprinted so expect rough designs and imperfections.

To make it even more exciting, we’ve made TEN bundles of Bandana and Flag for 25 GBP. So basically the fastest ten people will get a really nice deal!

Now, to important business: We are super excited to be stocking Wildfire Magazine, a new anarchist, animal liberation magazine full of artwork, photography, news about direct action, tips and tricks, philosophy, theory and even a ridiculous comic series called Black Mask drawn by Praxis.

We have attached the index of the magazine to this post for you to see how it looks like. It is pretty sick!

Wildfire is also Bulk selling bundles for groups who want to make some cash towards their campaigns, so if you want to sell the mags and put the cash towards a grassroots group or campaign, message them on wildfire magazine (at) riseup (dot) net.

And that’s basically it, go to the shop page on our website and have some beginning of the month radical fun!

FIFTEEN LORRIES SABOTAGED IN MEMORY OF REGAN RUSSELL.

21st June, Hampshire UK.

Received anonymously via email:

“For Regan Russell.

On June 21st we gained access to the Randall Parker slaughterhouse, near Andover in the UK.
Every single tyre on every single vehicle was slashed: 13 articulated lorries and two cabs, over 80 tyres in total. All of the vehicles were put out of action, including two from Sainsburys which were already pulled up to the loading bay, waiting to be filled with murdered corpses.
As we worked, we could hear the pigs inside the building, crying out as they await a death worse than our wildest nightmares. Our remorse that we had to leave them behind is only equal to our remorse that we could not have disabled the truck which murdered Regan.

We grew up on stories of the ALF, and we waited too long for them to come and help us. But now we realise, we are the ALF. All of us. And there are more of us than there are slaughterhouses. After generations of oppression, our generation will break this chain.

ALF”

FOURTEEN BROILER CHICKS AIDED OUT OF A FACTORY FARM IN MEMORY OF REGAN RUSSELL.

22nd June, East Midlands UK.

received anonymously via email:

“In the dark of night we found a hatchery full of thousands of newly hatched chicks, who in just over a month would be killed for their flesh. The shed was brightly lit even in the early hours of the morning.

One of our comrades squeezed through a small hole in one of the wooden sheds, and passed 14 chicks through to safety. We were in and out very quickly and ran away into the cover of night.

We thought we would make a cute video which features the chicks being carried away, and playing so we hope you enjoy it!

Our thoughts are with Regan Russell. Action is needed in her memory.
Keep fighting for total liberation.”

BUTCHER SHOP AND ANIMAL TRUCKS SABOTAGED IN MEMORY OF REGAN RUSSELL.

25th June, Alberta Canada.

received anonymouisly via email:

“!It is time that we send a clear message to exploiters. Your time is up. Your reign of terror will come to an end. We will burn your slaughterhouses, we will destroy your death trucks and we will make your lives a living nightmare.

Recently in Alberta, a butcher shop & “livestock” hauling company were targeted. This butcher shop murders pigs who are raised on their small family farm. These people are a family of killers. The butcher shop was redecorated with the truth “PIG KILLERS”, every single lock glued, including their van and destroyed their refrigeration system. The trucking company targeted takes thousands of cows to their execution, year after year. These drivers have no regard for non human or human life. They have tried to run humans over, time and time again. They brag about trying to kill people and view sentient beings as dollar signs and targets. Approximately 15 trailers were damaged. Every hose was cut on each trailer, the back gate chains cut, a message letting them know the ALF stopped by, building locks glued and their building spray painted. Economic sabotage hits these monsters where it hurts the most, their profits.

PIG KILLERS & DEATH ROW TRUCKERS, you are being watched.

In honour of Jill Phipps & Regan Russell.

Because buying veggie bacon will not save animals or end this injustice.”

PETER JANSSEN ARRESTED ACCUSED OF ARSON AT SLAUGHTERHOUSE.

On the 28th of May the only Dutch slaughterhouse murdering ducks was attacked. Five meat transporting trucks were set alight and destroyed. An incendiary device in the slaughterhouse never caught fire. This action would later be claimed as an ALF action.

The person behind the action had to leave prematurely losing his car keys and abandoning the car at the scene. A week later and after being wanted by the police, he would give himself in.

Today, his name was publicly released. Peter Janssen, known mostly for his work in Vegan Strike Group interrupting bullfighting and in Konijn in Nood investigating rabbit farms and performing open rescues, remains in prison, remanded and accused of “arson with danger for goods” although prosecution is weighing in changing the charge to “arson with danger to people”.

For now there is no public address for letters or an organised support group. As soon as fundraisers are ready and there is more information we will make sure to make it public.

SOLIDARITY IS OUR WEAPON.

UNTIL WE WIN.

7 INDIVIDUALS AIDED IN THEIR ESCAPE FROM A FACILITY.

21st June, Republic of Ireland.

received anonymously via email:

“At 2AM the team arrived at the facility to document the rights violations that are being inflicted upon these innocent and beautiful individuals. While scouting the perimeter they found wheelie bins stuffed with the deceased victims of this shit-hole.

When they entered one of the main buildings they were met with the stench of death and ammonia, so much so that their eyes were stinging and weeping,

At approximately 5am the team had completed what they needed to do and went outside to grab some fresh air and to consolidate all of their gear into one bag. A few moments later they entered the building again with empty bags and gently and respectfully helped a group who they had noticed to be a little bit of a duck gang into the bags.

They all left together as one gang, the driver was called and the Duck gang were delivered to their new place of safety a few days later.”

BUTCHER SHOP WINDOWS SMASHED, SPRAY PAINTED AND LOCKS GLUED. IN MEMORY OF REAGAN RUSSELL.

22nd June, Brighton.

received anonymously via email:

“Filled with rage at the news that a comrade had been murdered by a slaughterhouse truck driver, we took a very small portion of it out on this butcher shop, a place set on profiting no matter how much blood is spilt on the way. We cannot leave these places untouched, COST THEM, make it hurt.

We dedicate this action to Regan Russell, who thought doing something was better than nothing. We will remember you, the struggle continues and we will not let up. We’ve seen the call to #SavePigs4Regan and we’d like to expand on it. This is a call to action to DO SOMETHING. Target these places every way we can, #SmashButchers4Regan.

In case you’re wondering, this is the address of the place we visited: Choice Cuts, 95 Preston Drove BN1 6LD.

Love, rage, ALF.”
