December 10, 2010 - BUTCHER SHOP VAN DESTROYED

anonymous report, from La Haine (translation):

"On this cold morning a delivery van of the 'MB' butcher shop in Carabanchel was totally burned.

What better time than now and what better place than here. We can not wait any longer, our lives are adrift, the violence and exploitation that we suffer daily has reached an unexpected extreme. We refuse to accept this imposition, this technological dictatorship. We do not ask for anything. We chose to act for ourselves, without delegating, without looking for respect or admiration from anyone. we reject the vanguard because we do not speak for anyone else, our words are spoken with fire. It's time to take to the streets. Times are tough, that's true, but nobody said that it would be easy. All forces and energies are needed to break this techno-industrial system through words, stones, letters, fire, struggle....

Those who base their lives on exploiting animals (human and nonhuman) deserve the worst outcome.

To our brothers imprisoned behind bars and in cages

until all are free!

TIERRA SALVAJE [WILD EARTH]"

Spanish:
"Esta fria madrugada fue totalmente calcinada una furgoneta de reparto de la carniceria �MB� en Carabanchel.

Que mejor momento que ahora y que mejor lugar que aqui. No podemos esperar m�s, nuestras vidas van a la deriva, la violencia y la explotaci�n que sufrimos a diario esta llegando a limites insospechados. Nos negamos a aceptar esta imposici�n , esta dictadura tecnol�gica . No pedimos nada . Por eso optamos por actuar por nosotrxs mismxs, sin delgar en nadie, ni esperar el respeto ni la
admiraci�n de nadie, rechazamos las vanguardias porque no hablamos en nombre de nadie, el fuego es nuestra palabra. Es hora de salir a la calle, tiempos duros corren, es verdad, pero nadie dijo que iba a ser facil. Por ello son necesarias todas las fuerzas y las energias para derrumbar este sistema tecno industrial, mediante las palabras, las piedras, las letras, el fuego, el esfuerzo....

Aquellxs que sustentan sus vidas mediante la explotaci�n de lxs animales (humanos y no humanos) merecen el peor de los destinos.

A nuestrxs hermanxs encarceladxs entre rejas y jaulas

hata que todxs
seamos libres!!

November 13, 2010 - MINK LIBERATION DEDICATED TO BARRY HORNE

anonymous report (translation):

"On November 3, 2010 we approached the mink farm located in Albalate del Arzobispo, in Teruel.

It will soon be the time when these animals are killed to be made into coats. In a society in which speciesism is so ingrained we thought it was necessary to act and try to provide these individuals with an opportunity, and at the same time raise awareness of their situation.

We opened all the cages that contained mink, and roughly 200 were able to run free and try to find a way to escape the horrible fate that awaited them if they remained within the farm.

This action was taken two days before the anniversary of the death of Barry Horne, to whom we want to dedicate this liberation. His struggle remains in our memories and our hearts."

Spanish:

"El 3 de noviembre del 2010 nos acercamos a la granja de visones situada en Albalate del Arzobispo, en Teruel.

Se acerca las fechas en que estos animales son asesinados para servir de abrigo, en una sociedad donde el especismo esta tan arraigado creimos que era preciso actuar e intentar dar una oportunidad a esos individuos, a la vez que concienciar a la poblaci�n de la situaci�n de los mismos.
Abrimos la totalidad de las jaulas que contenian visones, siendo aproximadamente unos 200 los que pudieron correr libres, en busca de una oportunidad de escapar de su horrible destino en caso de permanecer dentro de la granja.

Esta acci�n fue realizada dos dias antes del aniversario de la muerte del compa�ero Barry Horne, al que queremos dedicarle esta liberaci�n. Su lucha permanece en nuestro recuerdo y en nuestros corazones."

October 27, 2010 - OPEN RESCUE OF FIVE HENS

Igualdad Animal / Animal Equality news release (photo gallery):

"Animal Equality activists have rescued five hens from a farm containing 160,000 animals on Monday 16 September.

After entering one of the sheds via an unlocked door and without having to use any type of force, the activists removed five hens, who were later examined by a vet. One of them had to be operated on to remove a huge mass from her head resulting from a an old eye infection. Another hen is currently receiving veterinary treatment but is out of danger.

These animals were being subjected to a process called a forced molt, in which through severe food restriction - including going for days without eating - and in total darkness, their bodies are shocked into a new cycle of egg-laying.

These one-and-a-half-year-old animals have spent the last eleven months trapped behind bars without being able to see the sun. They are suffering from various nutritional deficiencies and some of them also have liver damage due to the high protein content of their food which is given in order to increase the weight of their eggs.

The Animal Equality Open Rescue Team has recorded these images because we believe it is essential that society has access to what happens inside places like these so they have the ability to think about how the animals must feel.

This rescue was carried out on a farm with battery cages similar to the 'enriched cages' which will obligatory from 2012 onwards throughout the European Union. Nevertheless, on 'free-range' farms, hens are still deprived of their freedom and used as mere resources for human benefit, and finally all of them are sent to the slaughterhouse at a fraction of their natural lifespan.

In Spain, more than 47 million hens are victims of this system which exists to satisfy the demand for eggs. Eggs that we do not even need.
Another 47 million male chicks - their brothers - are also victims of this consumption. Often forgotten they do not even register in official statistics. On every type of farm, male chicks are killed, either ground up alive or gassed, because they do not lay eggs and they are not profitable for any other purpose.

Animal Equality rescues animals not only to help these particular individuals, but also to get society to reflect and stop seeing the other animals with which we share the planet as being at our disposal, as resources we can make a profit from.
As in all open rescues we carry out, we always come away filled with a sensation of sadness and impotence when we have to close the door and leave behind the thousands of other animals who will suffer their whole lives only to end up with their throats slit in a slaughterhouse.
We are simply unable to rescue all the animals on farms, in slaughterhouses, or laboratories. Ending this ongoing animal holocaust depends on each one of us, it depends on removing our financial support from all of it, in all its forms.

Living as vegans means we free those animals who were going to be forced to suffer and die for our demands, and builds a base of support for a world that is more equal for all, regardless of the species we belong to.

Towards the abolition of animal slavery.

October 25, 2010 - LIBERATION OF MINK INTERRUPTED BY FARMER

anonymous communique (translation):

"Early Saturday morning, Oct. 23, animal rights activists entered a mink farm in the town of Abegondo in Galicia to put an end to the animals exploitation.

Motivated by the investigation recently released in the media that shows the hell that these animals are subjected to we felt obligated to take sides and to stand in solidarity with them.

When a large portion of the cages were already open the farmer arrived unexpectedly, interrupting the liberation and we were forced to escape without being able to help all the animals.

Our struggle will not end as long as animals are being exploited. We oppose animal exploitation in all its forms and we believe that adopting a vegan lifestyle that respects animals is essential.

There are many ways you can help animals, it doesn't depend on anyone but yourself.

Against speciesism, for animal liberation."

Spanish:
"La pasada madrugada del s�bado 23 de Octubre diversos activistas por los derechos animales entramos en una granja de visones en la localidad de Abegondo en Galicia para poner fin a su explotaci�n.

Motivados por la investigaci�n emitida recientemente en los medios de comunicaci�n en la que se muestra el infierno al que son sometidos estos animales nos vimos obligados a tomar partido y solidarizarnos con ellos.

Cuando una gran parte de las jaulas ya estaban abiertas el granjero lleg� inesperadamente interrumpiendo la liberaci�n y nos vimos obligados a escapar sin poder ayudar a todos los animales.

Nuestra lucha no acabar� mientras haya animales explotados. Nos oponemos a la explotaci�n de los animales en todos los �mbitos y creemos necesario adoptar un estilo de vida vegano que respete a los animales.

Son muchas las formas en las que puedes ayudar a los animales, no depende de nadie m�s que de ti.

Contra el especismo, por la liberaci�n animal."


October 14, 2010 - PHOTOS RELEASED FROM BATTERY HEN RESCUE

Asturias

received anonymously (translation):

"The night of 5 October a group of vegan activists entered a battery hen farm located in Asturias and we rescued 22 of them. They were almost completely featherless due to the conditions in which they lived. Now the 22 chickens are safe from their exploiter and are recovering, both physically and psychologically, in freedom.

This communique is not intended to open the welfarist debate about whether or not battery cages are ethically justifiable. We want to revive the debate about animal exploitation itself, to discuss the fact that non-human animals, due to the simple fact of not belonging to our species, are considered resources. This occurs on all farms (battery and free range) and in all slaughterhouses.

Finally we want to dedicate this action to our Mexican comrades in prison or on the run (Braulio, Adrian, Abraham, etc.). We want to tell you that even though an ocean separates us, we are with you.

For animal liberation."

received anonymously:

"Last week we visited the house of Montserrat Ferr�n Tarr�s, one of the directors of Novartis Spain. We went to her home in Barcelona (Montserrat Ferr�n Tarr�s Passeig Fabra i Puig 17 2� 2�), glued the entrance lock, threw four paint bombs and left a painting saying: 'Montserrat Ferr�n Tarr�s tortures animals. Novartis=HLS'

With this action we tried to unmask Tarr�s, who as a director of Novartis is responsible for the torture and death of thousands of animals.

Don't wait until others do it, do it yourself, you make the difference. Until we all are free."

Spanish:

Llegamos hasta all�, inutilizamos la cerradura de entrada a la casa, lanzamos cuatro bombas de pintura y dejamos una pintada en la que se pod�a leer: 'Montserrat Ferr�n Tarr�s tortura animales. Novartis=HLS'

Realizamos la acci�n con la intenci�n de se�alar y desenmascarar a Tarr�s, quien, como directiva de Novartis (uno de los mayores clientes de los laboratorios HLS) es responsable del hacinamiento, tortura y muerte de miles de animales dentro de los muros de los laboratorios de Huntingdon Life Sciences.

June 24, 2010 - A BIKE RIDE & A RESCUED HEN

translation of anonymous report (click here for more photos from the rescue):

"Riding my bike in the southeast of Madrid I discovered several trucks with cages in the parking lot of a bird slaughterhouse. As the gate was open I decided to take a look and discovered that some birds had fallen to the ground and the workers had forgotten about them. There were around 10 in a ditch where the mechanics fix the trucks. I could only take one with some difficulty, and it was with difficulty that I got a cloth bag to bring her to Madrid on my bike. It gave me much pain to leave all the others there. They were laying hens who had lived all their lives in cages and since they were producing less they were murdered. We are going to give her a home where she will be happy. I no longer eat eggs and this makes me happy as I do not want to collaborate with this savagery.
Location: SOUTHEAST OF MADRID"

Spanish:
"Haciendo una ruta en bici por el sureste de Madrid descubri varios camiones con jaulas dentro del aparcamiento de un matadero de aves.Como la puerta estaba abierta decidi hechar un vistazo y descubri que algunas aves habian caido al suelo y los trabajadores se habian olvidado de ellas.Dentro de un foso donde los mecanicos areglan los camiones habia unas diez.Solo pude llevarme una a duras penas y conseguir una bolsa de tela a duras penas para trasladarla a Madrid en bici.Me dio mucha pena dejar alli a las demas.Eran todas gallinas ponedoras que habian vivido toda su vida en jaulas y como habia bajado la produccion de huevos eran asesinadas.Le vamoa a dar un lugar para que sea feliz.Ya no como huevos y esto me alegra,no quiero colaborar con esta salvajada.

June 19, 2010 - ARSON ATTACK ON PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY ACADEMY

reported anonymously (translation):

"In the early morning hours a fire was started at the front door of the EPHOS academy (www.ephos.es), a place of learning for future murderers. In this school they teach the future leaders of pharmaceutical companies to kill our animal brother and sisters and the earth without mercy. 'Here the land is devastated and animals murdered' was written on the walls.

Our lesson for them is that there is no place for them. We will attack them mercilessly. The earth devastated, our minds wiped out ... and we fight amongst ourselves for a larger piece of this absurd pie (increased wages, reduced working hours, better labor contracts...). We do not believe in the crisis because we have been in crisis since our birth: indoctrinated in the schools and in the family, exploited at work and murdered in the hospitals or in jail.
Our crisis is the lack of freedom, it is not the lack of money or of possessions, because these are what we want to destroy.

Freedom for all animals (human and nonhuman)

Mauricio Morales, your struggle is an example, this is for you.

Tierra Salvaje [Savage Earth]"

Spanish:
"Esta madrugada se le pego fuego a la puerta de entrada de la academia EPHOS (www.ephos.es), lugar de aprendizaje de futuros asesinxs. En esta academia ense�an a los futuros dirigenes de las farmaceuticas a asesinar sin piedad a nuestrxs hermanxs animales y a la tierra. Se de jo escrito �Aqui se devasta la tierra y se asesinan animales�

Ense�emosles que no hay lugar para ellxs, ataquemosles sin piedad. La tierra devastada, nuestras mentes aniquiladas.. y nosotrxs peleandonos por un trozo m�s del absurdo pastel (aumento de sueldos, reducci�n de jornadas laborales, mejores convenios�.) No nos creemos la crisis porque nosotrxs estamos en crisis desde que nacimos: adoctrinadxs en el colegio y la familia, explotadxs en el trabajo y asesindxs en un hospital o en la carcel.
Nuestra crisis es la falta de libertad, no la falta de dinero y de mercancias; porque quermos destruirlas.

June 5, 2010 - TRUCKS AT MEAT DISTRIBUTOR VANDALIZED

received anonymously (translation):

"On the night of May 29, 2010, we carried out what was for each of us our first direct action. The target was a meat distribution company located in Gava, Barcelona. With a little fear and nervousness we approached it with our faces covered. When we were facing it, you could see in the eyes of my comrades that the idea of abandoning the plan was running through their minds; that was in my thoughts as well. But we did not give up. We jumped the wall that separated us from the reality of animal exploitation and we moved into action. We punctured 7 tires on the two vehicles that were on the premises and we painted the symbol of the FLA on the back of the truck and on the hood of the cab.

Then we took off. On that night we had only planned that target but upon seeing the results of our first experience we headed to another meat company which was close by. We again jumped the wall and this time we punctured three tires on three trucks and again signed the symbol of the FLA.

FLA Barcelona"

Cuando estabamos situados delante de ella, puede ver en los ojos de mis compa�eros como la idea de abandonar el plan rondaba por sus cabezas; ese era tambi�n mi pensamiento. Pero no abandonamos, saltamos el muro que nos separaba de la realidad que hay detr�s de la explotaci�n animal y pasamos a la acci�n. Pinchamos 7 ruedas de los dos vehiculos que se encontraban en el recinto y pintamos las siglas FLA en la caja del cami�n y el capo de la furgoneta.

Abandonamos el lugar. Para esa noche solo teniamos planeados ese objetivo pero al ver los resultados de nuestra primera experi�ncia nos acercamos a otra distribuidora carnica cercana a nosotros. Saltamos de nuevo un muro y pinchamos en esta ocasi�n tres ruedas de tres camiones y de nuevo firmamos con las siglas FLA en ellos.

March 20, 2010 - ALARM SIDESTEPPED, CAGES OPENED AT MINK FARM

Juan Benito Tomas

Farm owner Juan Benito Tom�s explains how cages were opened at his farm (photo by A. RIVERA/Heraldo.es).

According to media reports, 126 mink were released from cages at a fur farm in Albalate del Arzobispo (Teruel) on Tuesday night, March 16.

The farm owner explained that a wire fence was cut to gain access to the farm, and then instead of entering through the front door of the shed, which was protected by an alarm, corrugated iron sheets that served as walls were removed from the sheds.

Most, but not all, of the mink have been recaptured.

The owner said that there have been seven incidents of theft and vandalism at the farm since he started it in 2002, but this was the first liberation.

Despreciamos, adem�s, la actuaci�n del diario El Pa�s y la propia compa��a Procter and Gambler, al no hacer p�blica esta informaci�n, exponiendo as� a los consumidores a un peligro potencial. En realidad solo demostraron ser la basura que ya sab�amos que eran.

Liberaci�n animal"
