December 19, 2013 - AIR FRANCE, FUR SHOPS TARGETED IN LYON

received anonymously:

"During the night of the 14th of December, several vandalism actions took place in Lyon, France. First of all the Air France agency got targeted. 'Stop Vivisection' got painted and the locks glued. Air France is the world's first transporter of animals to laboratories.
The biggest fur shop of the city also had a bit of a relooking. 'Fur=Torture' got painted on the walls and red-paint spread all over the other windows. The alarm stopped us in doing more damages unfortunately.
We then headed toward the city center and glued about 20 locks of shops selling fur and leather products.
At last we headed to the highway surrounding the city. A huge 'Meat=Murder' and 'Foie-Gras=Torture' got painted in order to remind people about the genocide in those Xmas times.
All the actions done this night will not stop here. Animal exploitation is everywhere in this society and we will fight until our last breath. Furthermore, France has seen a huge increase in the far-right politics lately. Racism, sexism and homophobia are everywhere and anyone working alongside those oppressions will also be targeted.
No tolerance for oppressions, animals or humans."

French:
"Dans la nuit du 14 d�cembre, plusieurs actions de vandalisme ont eu lieu � Lyon, France. Dans un premier temps l�agence Air France a �t� couverte de graffitis ainsi que sa serrure coll�e. Le slogan �Stop Vivisection� a �t� inscrit, la compagnie a�rienne �tant le premier transporteur d�animaux de laboratoires au monde.
Le plus gros magasin de fourrures de la ville a eu droit � un petit relooking �galement. Ici les slogans �Fourrure=Torture� ont �t� inscrits, et les autres vitres ont �t� asperg�es d�encre rouge. Le d�clenchement de l�alarme nous a emp�ch�(e)s d�en faire plus.
Suite � cela nous nous sommes dirig�(e)s vers le centre-ville. Une vingtaine de magasins vendant de la fourrure et du cuir ont ainsi eu leurs serrures coll�es �galement.
Pour finir, nous nous sommes dirig�(e)s vers la sortie de Lyon et avons investi(e)s l�autoroute. Un immense �Viande=Meurtre� a �t� inscrit ainsi que �Foie-Gras=Torture�, chose qui nous semblait importante de souligner en cette p�riode de No�l.
Les actes de vandalisme commis ce soir ne s�arr�teront pas l�. L�exploitation animale est omnipr�sente dans cette soci�t� et nous nous battrons jusqu�au dernier souffle. De plus, la France est en train de se radicaliser du c�t� de l�extr�me-droite. Le racisme, l�homophobie et le sexisme sont omnipr�sents et quiconque prot�geant ces oppressions sera �galement pris comme cible.
Aucune tol�rance pour les oppressions, que ce soit sur les humains ou les animaux."


December 10, 2013 - AIR FRANCE OFFICES VANDALIZED

Air France

received anonymously (click here for more photos):

"During the night of the 9th of December, in Paris (FRANCE), three of the airline's offices were visited. The door locks have been glued, fake blood and messages are now decorating the windows and the pavement.
These actions have been taken for the global week of action against Air France. Indeed, Air France-KLM is the largest animal carrier for vivisection laboratories, including HLS, which doesn't need an introduction anymore.

By the means of these actions we wanted to show our support to the Air Souffrance/Gateway To Hell campaign but also to send a clear message to the shitty company that Air France is and that it's high time for them to stop flying animals to hell.
There are many reasons to hate this profit-obsessed company :
- The transport of non-human animals to be tortured
- The 'sending back' of so-called (by our racist and capitalist government) illegal immigrants
- The destruction of our planet caused by air transportation
- The way they treat workers (racism, redundancy plans...)

Cut your links with the lab animal industry or else, we�ll be back.

Animal liberation!"

French:
"La nuit du 8 au 9 d�cembre, � paris (FRANCE), trois agences de la compagnie a�rienne ont re�u de la visite. Les serrures ont �t� remplies de colle, du faux sang et des messages d�corent d�sormais les vitrines mais aussi le trottoir. Ces actions ont �t� entreprises dans le cadre de la semaine mondiale d�actions contre Air France. En effet, Air France-KLM est le premier transporteur d�animaux � destination des laboratoires de torture, notamment vers HLS, le plus gros labo d�Europe qui n�a plus besoin d��tre pr�sent�.

Nous avons par ces actions voulu marquer notre soutien � la campagne Air Souffrance/Gateway To Hell mais aussi envoyer un message clair � la soci�t� de merde qu�est Air France, qu�il est grand temps pour eux d�arr�ter de convoyer des animaux vers l�enfer.
Il y a beaucoup de raisons de d�tester cette soci�t� obs�d�e par le profit :
- - Le transport d�animaux non-humains � des fins de torture
- - Les expulsions de personnes sans papiers
- - Le d�sastre �cologique que repr�sente le transport a�rien
- - Le traitement des salari�s (racisme, plans sociaux�)

Retirez-vous du commerce d�animaux pour les labos ou sinon, on reviendra.

Lib�ration animale !"

Spanish:
"En la noche del 8 al 9 de diciembre, en Paris (FRANCIA), tres agencias comerciales de esta compania a�rea han nido visitadas. Las cerraduras han sido llenadas de pegamento, sangre falsa y varios mensajes han decorado los escaparates y la acera.
Esta acciones han sido llevadas a cabo dentro de la semana mundial de accion contra Air France. En efecto, Air France-KLM es la principal compania de transporte de animales destinados a los laboratorios de tortura, principalmente a HLS, el mayor laboratorio europeo, al que no hace falta ni presentar.

Con estas acciones, hemos querido manifestar nuestro apoyo a la compana de Air Souffrance/Gateway To Hell y enviar un claro mensaje a la mierda de campania que es Air France : ya es hora de que dej�is de llevar a los animales al infierno.
Existen muchas razones para odiar a esta compania obsesionada por el lucro :
- - Transporta animales que seran torturados
- - En sus vuelos se llevan a cabo las expulsiones de los sin papeles
- - Por el desastre ecologico que supone el transporte a�ro
- - Et trato que da a sus empleados (racismo, EREs�)

Dejen de hacer comercio con animales destinados a los laboratorios o volveremos.

Animal liberation !"

October 11, 2013 - FRENCH ACTIVISTS STAND UP AGAINST RACISM

received anonymously:

"Since several months/years the French animal rights movement has been
infiltrated by far-rights and neo-nazis groups. On the 5th of June 2013, a
vegan anti-fascist activist named Cl�ment M�ric was murdered by Esteban
Morillo one of the far-right activist who has been hanging around animal
rights demos over the past few months. Since then nothing has changed, far
rights nazis are still welcome at demos et the majority of Franch animal
rights activists dont seem to give adamn about it. Our message is clear,
the Animal Liberation Movement was, is and will always be antifascist. We
will not tolerate racism, sexism and homophobia and that is a very big
concern for every person that truly cares about this cause. We do ask to
every person involved in the animal rights movement in France and
everywhere in the world to fiercely stand up against racism, sexism and
homophobia. The far-right politics dont match with animal liberation and
that will never change."

French:
"Depuis plusieurs mois/ann�es, le mouvement de protection/lib�ration
animale en France a �t� infiltr� par des groupes d'extr�me-droite et des
neo-nazis. Le 5 juin 2013, Cl�ment M�ric, un activiste vegan et
antifasciste a �t� assassin� par Esteban Morillo, l'un des activistes
d'extr�me-droite qui se tr�moussait dans la cause animale depuis quelques
mois. Depuis ce meurtre rien n'a chang�, l'extr�me-droite et les nazis
sont toujours les bienvenus aux manifestations et la majorit� des
activistes fran�ais n'ont pas l'air de s'inqui�ter de cela. Notre message
est clair, le mouvement de lib�ration/protection animale �tait, est et
sera toujours clairement anti-fasciste. Nous ne tol�rerons pas le racisme,
le sexisme ou l'homophobie et c'est une vraie probl�matique pour chaque
personne qui prends vraiment cette cause � coeur. Nous demandons � chaque
personne s'impliquant dans le mouvement de lib�ration/protection animale
en France et partout dans le monde de s'opposer f�rocement au racisme, au
sexisme et � l'homophobie. Les politiques d'extr�me-droite n'ont pas leur
place avec la lib�ration/animale and cela ne changera jamais."


August 18, 2013 - GOLDFISH RESCUED FROM MISERABLE CONDITIONS

anonymous report:

"Two goldfishes were kept in a dirty bowl in an art school in Paris.
The bowl with the fishes was used as a piece of decoration in a student play. The student performers left the bowl in a common space of the school between the plays. Goldfishes are cousins with carps and grow just as big. They are supposed to live around 25 years when they have space and oxygen, and yet they probably are the most tortured 'pet', because they are strong and able to survive sometimes a few years in terrible conditions. As it was an easy thing to 'steal' the bowl and find a great place to live for the fishes, it became a duty for us to do the job. They are now both living in a big garden pond with other goldfishes and will never endure dirty water and lack of space again. We will do that again every time we have the possibility to. We encourage you to do the same and also to try to steal and free living sea animals from markets (lobsters, crabs etc) It is also a necessity to inform people about goldfishes, they do have memory, they do feel pain and they absolutely need a lot of space and other fishes to live with.

ALF"

French:
"Deux poissons rouges �taient maintenus dans un bocal d'eau sale dans une �cole d'art parisienne.
Le bocal �tait utilis� comme un �l�ment de d�cor dans une pi�ce de th��tre �tudiante. Le reste du temps il �tait dans un espace commun de l'�cole. Les poissons rouges sont des cousins des carpes, et deviennent aussi grands. Ils sont cens�s vivre autour de 25 ans quand ils ont l'espace et l'oxyg�ne n�cessaire, et pourtant ils sont probablement l'animal "de compagnie" le plus tortur�, parce qu'ils sont r�sistants et capables de survivre parfois plusieurs ann�es dans d'horribles conditions. Comme il �tait facile de "voler" le bocal et de trouver un bon endroit pour vivre � ces poissons, c'est devenu notre devoir de nous en charger. Il vivent maintenant dans un grand bassin de jardin avec d'autres poissons rouges. � chaque occasion que nous aurons, nous referons la m�me chose. Nous vous encourageons � faire de m�me, et aussi � envisager de "voler" et lib�rer les animaux marins vivants sur les march�s (homards, crabes etc). C'est aussi indispensable d'informer les gens � propos des poissons rouges, ils ont une m�moire, ils ressentent la douleur, ils ont un besoin absolu d'espace, et d'autres poissons avec lesquels vivre.

June 5, 2013 - FOUR PIGEONS LIBERATED, CAGES AND HUNTING TOWER DESTROYED

translation of anonymous report:

"This isn't the first time that we've attacked you and it will not be the last. We know who you are, and if you're the trapper, you are responsible and I hope you read this. We will not stop destroying your cages as long as they are there.
To all animal rights activists who do not know about these cages for crows or pigeons, the idea is simple: use a few birds as decoys along with food and water inside the cage. The new traps are supposed to be taken down every day and "emptied" in various ways .. These cages must be destroyed and can be found in many agriculture areas, out of sight, often in the surrounding forests or any good hiding place.
Until every cage is empty.
ALF"

French:
"Ce n'est pas la premi�re fois que nous nous attaquons � toi et ce ne sera pas la derni�re. Nous savons qui tu es, et si ce n'est toi le pi�geur, tu es le commanditaire et j'esp�re que tu pourras lire cela, nous n'arr�terons pas de d�truire tes cages tant qu'elles seront l�.
A tous les militants pour les animaux et qui ne connaitraient pas ces cages � corvid�s ou � pigeons ici. Le principe est simple: se servir de quelques individus comme appelants avec nourriture et eau � l'int�rieur de la cage, les nouveaux pi�g�s sont cens�s �tre relev�s tous les jours puis "�limin�s" selon diverses fa�ons.. Ces cages sont � d�truire et se trouvent dans beaucoup de zones d'agriculture, � l'abri des regards, bien souvent dans les forets environnantes ou tout endroit bon pour cacher.
Jusqu'� ce que chaque cage soit vide.

Rambouillet

received anonymously:

"By the night of 31/12/11 to 01/01/12, in the forest of Rambouillet, near Paris, french activists went into a part of this forest dedicated to hunting.

Hunters rent hunt seats to the owner and when the animals come in the area they have no way to escape. So we cut the barbed wires (so they have a way to escape) and destroyed 4 hunt seats. One of these was dumped in a river.

French ALF wishes a happy new year to all the other groups worldwide, to all our prisoners and above all every animal.

In loving memory of Barry Horne
