July 6, 2014 - 40 HENS RESCUED

anonymous report, from 269 Israel:

"On a 269life special liberation operation, we rescued 40 hens from a laboratory in Israel.
The hens were wounded and had broken bones and deep cuts all over their bodies, due to agricultural experiments.

To satisfy our selfish gluttony millions of animals undergo terrible experiments and torture. For example the genetic manipulation forced upon them in the food industries that causes enormous suffering and pain. The purpose of this practice is to accelerate their growth and enlarge parts like the breast. This practice ruins their internal organs. They are forced to live in constant deformation, illness and infections and are forced to endure this constant torture, until their bodies can no longer cope with the stress.

Living beings are not commodity, they feel pain and fear just like us. It's time to stop this madness.
Go Vegan - Free 269!"


June 2, 2014 - SEVERAL CROWS FREED FROM TRAP

anonymous report, from 269 Israel (click here for more photos):

"On May 25th, anonymous 269Life activists released animals from the prison they were dying in. What is the difference between breaking in and release? What is the difference between crime and saving lives? Look at the pictures. And now imagine you were trapped, robbed of your freedom, separated from your family, left to die of hunger and thirst. Imagine yourself as an animal who is not considered neither a 'pet' nor a 'useful' animal but a 'pest', an animal whose killing is permitted, even desired. Imagine the moments of disabling terror, of pain and dying, when a figure arrives, and without demanding anything in return, without even knowing you, that figure tears for you an opening to freedom, to life. That figure that respects any animal, regardless of skin texture, whether a creature of fur or feathers, that figure that would not walk on past a wire-mesh trap unjustly holding sentient beings, the figure carrying a bolt cutter, always.
Every animal deserves justice, compassion and freedom. We are all 269.
In Israel crows are considered a pest. The authorities trap them and kill them by starvation, by shooting, by poison or by breaking their necks. Today an AR activist awarded several crows trapped in a starvation trap a second chance on life. We wish to thank those masked activists for what they did for the voiceless animals."

January 4, 2014 - 412 CHICKENS LIBERATED

reported anonymously (click here for more photos):

"269Life Israel
Happy new (free 269) year for the 412 chickens (!) that were liberated by us.
Not only will those poor girls live in freedom and in safety, but more
importantly the death factory that held them, has gone under and was closed
for ever! which means no more death and carnage will be placed upon any
more Innocent and defenseless birds and no longer will the screams of
hundreds of terrified and distressed beings fill the air, in that wretched
blood and shit soaked dungeon of despair and death. No more birds will ever
endure the feeling of torment of being encased in a body sized cage and
then be brutally butchered by the state mandated electrocution machine.
Once their egg production numbers fall and their bodies collapse, from all
the agony and stress they were made to endure in this egg laying plant of
death.
Hope the girls recover quickly, from their deep mental and physical
injuries and that we see many more liberated animals this coming year.
Free 269 - Go vegan"

anonymous report:

"I freed a small green bird, probably a kind of a parrot, from a cage which was located on a windowsill, as if it were a flower box planter. After a short moment of realizing what had just happened, s/he flew away happily, chirping. In place of the bird I put in the cage a piece of paper with only '269' written on it (www.269life.com)."


August 31, 2013 - COW SAVED FROM SLAUGHTER

anonymous report, from 269 life:

"We did it, 269 is free and recuperating well.
Several weeks ago, we broke into the death camp that was holding him captive for his meat.
We were observing the farm for a long time, there were many difficulties.
A fully grown bull rescue and the security measures in place posed a great challenge and so we were waiting for the perfect opportunity to act.
His slaughter date was rapidly approaching and so time was of the essence!
We took down two rows of solid steel bars and used an opportunity early in the morning to launch the operation. After a long struggle, we managed to push him on the ramp, in the nick of time.
This action is just another step, our ultimate goal is monumental, but we will prevail.
We are 269, we will never rest, back down or compromise!
Until they are all free, from mans tyranny.
All are 269"


July 26, 2013 - HEN, RABBIT AND GUINEA PIGS RESCUED AND REHOMED

reported by 269 activists in Israel (click here to see more photos from the rescue):

"'Conservation' Liberation By 269 Activists

A hen, a rabbit and 4 guinea pigs have been liberated in Israel from the Israeli 'conservation' (caging for money) society park by 269 activists, and found loving homes!

A hen, a rabbit and 4 guinea pigs in Israel have been liberated from the 'live stamp collection' (that some people see as 'conservation park') and re-homed (or to be precise, judging by their behavior, finally feel like they found a home, in the first time in their lives). Like any other zoo, the 'conservation park' is making profit from 'educational tours', where children can learn that the guinea pigs, like the ones they cage, had an important role � nourishing humans and 'serve' as a live model for tests (true story � that's the accurate translation from Hebrew of what the sign with the guinea pigs says), and mainly speciesism. Heartbreaking pictures were taken, and for dessert � 2 signs have been improved ('in order to keep the animals from running away, please close the gates'-> 'in order to keep the animals from running away, please close the gates -269'), as seen in the picture.

The background to the action � after discovering (by the story of a jackal who has been found trapped in his 2 front legs � and 2 dead jackals after it) that the Israeli 'conservation' park traps jackals via leg traps (where animals either chew their own legs until they're teared, while trying to escape, or left to die in hunger and thirst), so they wouldn�t harm the animals (=property) they harm in captivity, we�ve gone to check this place out � the harm to the jackals, AND to the animals that wouldn�t have been harmed, 'forcing' the park to trap jackals, if they were not in captivity on the first place.

In the pictures: empty food and water dishes for most of them, water that were dyed in deep green from pollution, which they drink from, sheep, lambs, goats and kids shoving their heads through the bars of their prison, in desperate trials to get out, ducks and geese swimming and drinking from dangerous water that has been declared as 'not suitable for drinking or swimming', animals suffering from pests and hair loss (probably because of the pests) � the liberated rabbit was one of them.

The chicken is probably (judging by her bony shape) a spent 'egg layer'. 1/2 of her beak was trimmed ('bad trimming', as opposed to 'good trimming' � 1/3 of the beak), many of her feathers were missing (all of her long neck, probably from rubbing against the bars because she, like all of the chickens, has a need to take a sand bath, but has never seen the sand, as well as around the eyes, probably from the poisonous Ammonia gas she, like them all, breathed), and unsurprisingly, she was scared of humans.
While rabbits and guinea pigs are known to be vulnerable to heat (rabbits come from a very cold climate, and in nature animals are able to migrate to a warmer or cooler place) and to die in the Israeli summer, the animals were kept in the hot and dry Israeli summer (that's 30�C degrees!) without any cooling system (no heating systems were found either), and without even


April 10, 2013 - 105 ABUSED HENS RESCUED FROM EGG FARM

reported by activists in Israel (click here for photos from the investigation, rescue and rehoming of the animals):

"On the 3rd of April 2013, an animal liberation act was carried out by the 269life movement, in Israel.
105 egg laying hens were liberated and rehomed, from an atrocious battery farm. We been investigating this place and will release the unforgivable and shocking evidence of rampant and typical cruelty. That innocent animals are subjected to all over the food industry. The law chooses to protect the violence, against such defenceless and sentient beings and so we will act in their place.
