"On the night of tuesday 9th of april, 5 CAV-activists
entered the breeding facility of Jan Rutten, Beerschemaasweg 45 in
Escharen (phonenumber: 0031/486472127). This guy breeds beagle dogs for
vivisection labs. He told the press that he wasn't bothered by the
suffering of these animals. The 5 activists entered the building and
took 6 dogs with them and placed them with loving people. Thanks to the
brave activists these dogs will live a happy life without pain and fear!
Liberation not experimentation!
The 5 activists have nothing to be ashamed of, and to
put vivisection in the media went to the police to give themselves up.
They are in custody right now, but will probably released after
hearings, awaiting their trial.
Prison doesn't scare us, that's nothing in comparison
what al those animals butchered and abused every single day! No, we will
never close our eyes! No, we will never shut up! For us it's about the
animals! The only thing to fear is fear itself!"
In the night of 6 - 7 October the Animal Liberation
Front forced their way in to a battery farm in the Netherlands. We
rescued 52 chickens from this hell for animals. These beautiful chickens
have been re-homed in a new home where a wonderful new life will be
waiting for them. We will never accept that innocent lives are being
oppressed. Millions of animals are being exploited daily by industrial
companies for the unnecessary luxury of the human kind. We choose for
the direct liberation of these chickens to give them a chance of a
better life and to show that these individuals live in a nightmare every

Here, the fat of the land fill their days with torturing innocent animals for
Those people should get a job.
But now they're doing their sick business among texts like "sport fisherman -
animal torturers!" and "fish feel pain!", which have been painted on the street
at the end of the breakwater piers, along with an A.L.F-sign.
Now your children, which you introduce into your cruel "hobby",
will not only ask "doesn't that hurt the fish?", but also: "Why are they writing
that we're animal torturers?"
At the other side of Scheveningen harbour, at the Dr. Lelykade

This redneck makes his money selling torture tools.
In the shop window, you can see pictures of the owner of the store, posing
proudly with the innocent animals he has tortured and killed.
What more proof of animal cruelty do you need?
Therefore, the lock of his main entrance was glued.
This act of love and compassion was done to give a voice, to

Media in Denmark have reported that more than 10,000
mink were released from cages at Danish fur farms this week. During the
night of October 6, 6000 mink escaped from a farm near S�ndervig after
cages were opened and fences surrounding the property were destroyed.
Then, early on October 9, 5000 mink were freed from cages at a farm in

July 20, 2009 -- 40 Hens Liberated
"During the night of May 11-12 we liberated 40 hens from
battery cages. In this small barn in every cage there were three or four
chickens piled on each other. Some chickens where totally bald on their
neck. They struggled to get more air and space. After a year of
laying eggs, the chickens will be killed because they don't make enough
money anymore for the farmer. But those chickens who we have
liberated shall live for years in freedom. We have filmed the condition
of the chickens in this farm. Next to this barn there was another barn
with "broiler" chickens. These chickens raised for meat were all bald
and couldn't stand up on their legs anymore. It was difficult to leave
so many animals behind at such a disgusting place.
We will continue until all animals, human and non-human,
can live in freedom.
Dutch: "In de nacht van 11 op 12 mei hebben
we 40 kippen bevrijd uit een legbatterij. In de benauwde stal zaten
in ieder hok drie of vier kippen over elkaar heen. Sommige kippen
waren kaal bij hun nek. Ze probeerden de hele tijd meer lucht te krijgen
en meer ruimte. Na een jaar eieren leggen, worden legkippen dood
gemaakt, omdat ze niet genoeg geld meer opleveren voor de boer. Maar
de kippen die we bevrijd hebben zullen nog jaren kunnen leven in
vrijheid. We hebben gefilmd hoe de dieren zaten. Naast de legbatterij
was een schuur met vleeskippen. De vleeskippen waren kaal en zakten
door hun pootjes. Veel waren ook al dood. Het was moeilijk zoveel
dieren achter te laten in een plek als dit.
We gaan door tot alle dieren, menselijk en
niet-menselijk, in vrijheid leven.
June 15, 2009 -- Bomb Threat at Wageningen University
received anonymously (photos: gelderlander.nl,
"In the morning of June the 15th the ALF went back
to the Wageningen university. For more than a year this university has
been warned about their meaningless experiments on various animals and
especially pigs (obesity research).
But the Wageningen university
decided to do NOTHING and even sent the police after us! We are trying
to help you!
So we painted the messages: Danger Bomb, Warning
Bomb and Stay Away. We also busted a window through which we supposedly
gained entrance to plant a bomb. But we didn't and took off.
7.00 am this message was discovered and the police was called. They also
called the Royal Army bomb squad. The building was evacuated and sealed
Media first reported that a strange package was found but
later said nothing was found at all. But before they noticed it was just
a hoax it was around three in the afternoon. This was very unfortunate
because the university has an international congress on Food coming up
See how Annoying a bomb threat is? Now we ask of you:
Make some REAL changes for the animals before the end of the month. Real
changes not meaningless debates or commissions. Not because we scared
you into it, But because it's THE RIGHT THING!.
We have better
things to do than running around at night.

April 10, 2009 -- 25 Windows Smashed at Wageningen Univ.
"In the early morning of the 9th of april, about 25 windows at the
WAGENINGEN UNIVERSITY vivisector office building have been smashed.
The ALF here by claims these actions.
Info About The Wageningen University Actions:
After 3 small warnings by the ALF in the past months to raise the issue
and show we are who we say we are, the University of Wageningen
first tried to keep the actions a secret.
But when an independant journalist began writing about the actions
the university went to the media. The NOS Journaal, Netherlands
biggest news show, and a few national papers reported about the
actions. Censoring and twisting statements they tried to make
everything look like terrorism again. They even lied about the fact
that people were personaly threatened.
This all fitted right in the new media sensation of the Netherlands,
Eco-Terrorism. Just as in the US and the UK now the Netherlands
shows what a police-state she really is.
Some lies that were stated in the Nos-Journaal and ''n Vandaag Show:
-The Netherlands would be the new base for International Eco-Terrorism
(Stated by a man who falsely stated to work for the British police and
actually worked for the pharmaceutical-industry.)
-Legal animal rights groups who peacefully protest should no longer be
allowed to do so, and should also not be able to receive money from the
public. This is because these would be the same people as the ones who
go out at night for direct action.
-Animal testing would only be done when absolutely necessary.
(At the WAGENINGEN UNIVERSITY they cut open live pigs without
any pain-killers. Then they feed it a dessert-pudding and watch
how it makes its way through the stomach. Then they Murder the animals.)
These are just some of the lies they tell the public. So here a statement
from our personal cell:
-No animal, human or non-human, will ever be hurt by us.
-Anyone at the Wageningen University besides Vivisectors will NEVER be
attacked personally or have their personal belongings vandalised.
-NO ONE who took part in the actions in the past months has EVER
demonstrated or socialized with legal animal rights groups.
Animal Liberation Front."
April 7, 2009 -- More Broken Windows at McDonalds
"In the morning of April the 6th the A.R.O.M.A (Animal Rights One Man Army)
went out again. This time paying a third visit to the Mc-Donalds in Deventer
Last time I smashed their Mc-Drive windows but later learned they had another
one of these booths. This time i also smashed the second one by breaking seven
windows. Also a glass door of the eating-zone was smashed.
Cause lets be honest people; The biggest disgrace in the world is that Mc-Donalds
is allowed to put the word 'restaurant' above their entrance!
PS: On the other side of the city I smashed the windows and hood of an
SUV-Like vehicle. This was at a car dealership since the A.R.O.M.A does not
believe in damaging personal belongings. Any property of the State or Companies
may be completely destroyed.
March 31, 2009 -- Windows Smashed at McDonalds
"In the early morning of march the 30th the A.R.O.M.A (Animal Rights One Man
Army) moved in on the MCDonalds in Deventer (Netherlands) again.
Since the Mc-Arson-Menu they ordered was not ready yet we delivered them a
nice window smashing for starters. The main dish will be coming soon!
The windows that were smashed were also the MC-Drive window. This might seem
like small-time damage but if you think about it; They now have to either cover
up those windows to prevent cold from coming in and costumers getting angry.
That way they can't use the MC-Drive until the windows are replaced. The only
thing they can do is to not cover up the windows and turn up the heater which
will cost them extra money as well.
March 28, 2009 -- Broken Windows at Dairy Industry Supplier
"In the night between March the 26th and 27th the A.R.O.M.A (Animal Rights
One Man Army) went out again.
This time a company that produces Cow Torturing Machines, also known as
Milk-Machines. They are designed to suck out the milk and life of mother cows.

March 22, 2009 -- Candy Trashing Spree
"On the 21st of March the A.R.O.M.A (Animal Rights One Man Army) went out to
some big supermarkets in the Netherlands. (Different ones than last time)
This time the A.R.O.M.A went on a Candy Trashing Spree.
About sixty Mars/Snickers/Twix bars had their packaging cut open.
Also +- 100 bags of HARIBO* candy were ruined.
Haribo is the major sponsor for the Herman Renz Circus, which keeps wild animals
for the amusement of idiots. They are also the biggest candy seller in the

March 19, 2009 -- 2500 Mink Released from Cages at Fur Farm
"In the province of Zeeland is the quiet village Stavenisse. It looks like a
peaceful town but just on the outside of Stavenisse is a mink farm called
Walhout BV. This family company earns money by breeding about 30,000 mink a year
and gassing them after 7 months for their fur.
The mink spend their entire lives on the farm in small wire cages. Hundreds
sit in cramped sheds awaiting their death. The sheds are not much more than a
roof, because the colder the mink are the thicker their fur is and that means
more money for the breeder.
Last November, about 80% of the mink were gassed and skinned. The mink who
were 'lucky' enough to live are used to create a new stock of mink. A mink has
between 1 and 10 young per litter.
The DBF wants an end to this exploitation of animals and especially for an
unnecessary luxury product like fur. We won't wait for a ban on mink farming
because in The Hague they have debated for 10 years too long already. Not words
but deeds; this is why we have taken it into our own hands.
During the night of Saturday 14th to Sunday, March 15th we went to Walhout
BV. From previous visits to this filthy business, we knew exactly what we could
and could not do about the (otherwise extremely useless) security. Once we were
on the grounds we first destroyed all the breeding cards in 20 sheds and painted
in big letters 'DBF is everywhere'. We found a ladder which was very useful for
us to escape again over the fence. There was also an excavator which we took the
keys from and cut all the cables. There were multiple nets to catch mink around
the area which we also destroyed. Then it was time for the real job: Liberating
the mink! We freed all the animals that we could and took 5 mink with us to be
released somewhere else in a natural area. Before we left we cut holes in the
fence to help the mink escape.
This will be a significant blow to the company for a mink is worth at least
'90. The Rasmussen mink farm in Oude Molen was lucky this time, as the DBF left
you alone. Let this be a warning; stop the breeding and murder of innocent
animals! As long as the animals suffer we will not rest; you can make that ditch
that you are making as wide as you want but it will never stop us!
Your choice to kill,
Our choice to liberate!
More news about this action will follow..."
*Media reported that approximately 2,500 were released from cages.
"In Zeeland ligt het rustige dorpje Stavenisse. Zo op het eerste gezicht lijkt
er niks aan de hand maar aan de rand van Stavenisse ligt een bedrijf dat het
daglicht niet kan verdragen, namelijk nertsenfokkerij Walhout BV. Dit
familiebedrijf verdient geld door jaarlijks rond de 30.000 nertsen te fokken en
na 7 maanden te vergassen voor hun pels.
De nertsen brengen hun hele leven op het bedrijf door in krappe kooien van
gaas. Met honderden tegelijk zitten zij in schuren opeengepakt hun dood af te
wachten. De schuren stellen niet veel meer voor dan een dak op wat palen, want
hoe kouder de nertsen het hebben hoe dikker hun vacht word en dat betekend weer
meer geld voor de fokker.
Afgelopen november zijn ongeveer 80% van de nertsen vergast en vervolgens
gevilt. De nertsen die 'het geluk' hebben om te blijven leven worden gebruikt om
weer een nieuwe lading nertsen op de wereld te zetten. E'n nerts krijgt tussen
de 1 en 10 jongen per worp.
Het DBF wil een einde maken aan deze uitbuiting van dieren en al helemaal
voor een overbodig luxe product zoals bont. Wij wachten niet op een
nertsenfokverbod want daar zijn ze in Den Haag al 10 jaar te lang over aan het
discuseren. Geen woorden maar daden vinden wij en daarom hebben we het heft in
eigen handen genomen.
In de nacht van zaterdag 14 op zondag 15 maart zijn we naar Walhout BV gegaan.
Door eerdere bezoekjes aan dit smerige bedrijf wisten we precies wat we wel en
niet konden doen i.v.m. de (overigens ontzettend waardeloze) beveiliging. Zodra
we op het terrein waren hebben we eerst in zo'n 20 schuren het complete systeem
van fokkaarten vernield en een mooie leus aangebracht (DBF is overal).
Vervolgens kwamen we een trap tegen en die kwam goed van pas om weer over de
schutting heen te komen bij ons vertrek. Ook stond er een graafmachine waarvan
we de sleutels hebben meegenomen en alle kabels die we maar zagen hebben we
doorgesneden. Verspreid over het terrein stonden vangnetten die we onbruikbaar
hebben achtergelaten. Daarna was het tijd voor het echte werk: Het bevrijden van
de nertsen! We hebben alle dieren waar we bij konden komen bevrijd en 5 nertsen
meegenomen om die vervolgens ergens anders in een natuurgebied vrij te laten.
Voordat we weg gingen hebben we op verschillende plaatsen in de schutting gaten
gemaakt waardoor de nertsen konden wegkomen.
Het bedrijf heeft een flinke klap gekregen want ''n nerts is minstens '90
waard. Nertsenfokkerij Rasmussen in Oude Molen heeft geluk gehad en is deze keer
door het DBF met rust gelaten. Laat dit een waarschuwing zijn en stop met het
fokken en vermoorden van onschuldige dieren! Zolang er dierenleed plaatsvind
zullen wij niet rusten en je kunt die sloot die je aan het aanleggen bent nog zo
breed maken maar dat zal ons nooit stoppen!
Jullie keuze om te doden
Onze keuze om te bevrijden!
Binnenkort volgt meer nieuws over deze actie..."
March 13, 2009 -- Windows At McDonalds Smashed to Pieces
"In the early hours of march the 12th the A.R.O.M.A (Animal Rights One Man

But once there, the A.R.O.M.A noticed several employees where still working,
at 4 in F*cking morning! What dedication to such a shit job.
A few minutes later after they had all left, moved in again smashing a front

After a few minutes and not one reaction from nobody, another window was smashed

March 12, 2009 -- From Hell to Warm Homes for 20 Rabbits
"In the night of Saturday 20th-Sunday 21st of February the Dieren Bevrijdings
Front (DBF) liberated 20 young rabbits from a company earning money off the
backs of defenseless animals. The rabbits have been re-homed with people who
will treat them with love and they will live happy lives in freedom just like it
The rabbits were in large numbers in a dark shed without any daylight coming
in. The rabbits were kept in small wire cages, with eight rabbits in each. They
had no space to stand up or to lay down in a normal way (if that would even be
possible on a wire cage floor).
There was an overwhelming smell of urine and some of the rabbits had eaten
each others fur due to stress and boredom. We also found a few dead rabbits (see
photo) between the other rabbits.
The rabbits who will survive this hell will eventually die a cruel death in a
slaughterhouse after 10 weeks.
The DBF will never accept this hidden animal cruelty and will keep on
fighting for every animal that suffers for the cruel needs of humans.
A few facts about the suffering of rabbits raised for meat:
-Each year two million rabbits are killed for their meat which is mainly
exported to France.
-The Netherlands has about 324,000 "meat" rabbits and 40,000 female rabbits
used for breeding!
-The meat rabbits are slaughtered after 10 weeks; the female rabbits are
killed after breeding for one year.
-The female rabbits give birth seven times a year, and 1 of 5 rabbits die

Original Dutch communique:
"In de nacht van zaterdag 20 op zondag 21 februari heeft het dieren bevrijdings
front(DBF) 20 jonge konijnen bevrijd uit een bedrijf dat geld verdiend over de
ruggen van deze weerloze dieren. De konijnen zijn ondergebracht bij mensen die
ze liefdevol verzorgen en waar ze een gelukkig leven in alle vrijheid kunnen
leiden zoals het hoort.
De konijnen zaten met grote aantallen in een donkere schuur waarin geen
daglicht naar binnen kon. In de kleinen van draad gaas zaten de konijnen
ongeveer met 8 stuks tegelijk opgesloten.ze hadden geen ruimte om recht overeind
te staan, laat staan ruimte om normaal te liggen (voorzover dat mogelijk is op
een ondergrond van alleen maar gaas)
Het stonk er vreselijk naar urine en sommige konijnen hadden zichzelf en hun
soortgenoten van de stress en van verveling kaal gevreten, ook troffen we in een
paar kooien dode konijnen aan (zie foto) die gewoon tussen de levende dieren in

Tot slot een paar feiten over het leed dat konijnen vlees heet.
-per jaar worden er twee miljoen konijnen vermoord voor het vlees wat
voornamelijk wordt geexporteerd naar Frankrijk.
-Nederland "herbergt" 324.000 vlees konijnen 40.000 voedsters (vrouwtjes
