December 29, 2011 - RABBITS LIBERATED FROM FARM

received anonymously (translation):

"On November 9, well into the night, total liberation activists entered a rabbit farm in a town near Barcelona to once again collect images of how animals are abused and confined; this time it was rabbits, and we took the opportunity to give freedom to some of them.

On this occasion there were three individuals who we liberated and who are now in a safe place where they can enjoy the rest of their days according to their needs. It was a difficult task since this time we had to suppress our desire for freedom and limit ourselves to only a few of the hundreds who were in the farm.

This liberation is dedicated in part to the memory of Barry Horne which pushes us to keep fighting and in part because we want to show solidarity with Osmar Evcan, who at the time of the liberation was on hunger strike in a Turkish prison demanding something as basic as vegan food within those walls of misery and loneliness.

For these and for the many other prisoners who fight against this shitty system, all our rebellious love and rage.

"El 9 de noviembre, bien entrada la noche, activistas por la liberaci�n total entraron en una granja de conejos de una localidad cercana a Barcelona para grabar una vez mas im�genes referentes a como son maltratados y encerrados los animales, en esta ocasi�n conejos, y ya de paso proporcionarles la libertad a algunos de ellos.

En esta ocasi�n fueron tres individuos los que liberamos ya que el hecho de encontrarles un lugar seguro donde poder disfrutar del resto de sus d�as seg�n sus necesidades, fue una tarea dif�cil, as� que por esta vez tuvimos que reprimir nuestras ansias de libertad y limitarnos a unos pocos de cientos que hab�an en la granja.

Esta liberaci�n va dedicada por un lado a Barry Horne quien su recuerdo nos empuja a seguir luchando y por otro lado queremos solidarizarnos con Osmar Evcan, el cual en el momento de la liberaci�n estaba en huelga de hambre en una c�rcel turca exigiendo algo tan b�sico como es una alimentaci�n vegana dentro de esos muros de miseria y soledad.

Para ellos y tantxs otrxs presxs por luchar contra esta mierda de sistema, todo nuestro amor rebelde y nuestra rabia.

October 24, 2011 - OPEN RESCUE OF 5 HENS


translation of a report on resistenciaautonoma.blogspot.com (click here for video from a Resistencia Aut�noma open rescue of four hens in April 2011):

"Activists from Resistencia Aut�noma [Autonomous Resistence] carried out another open rescue, in this case of 5 hens.

These animals were condemned to a life of exploitation in an intensive farm in the province of Toledo. Their existence, like that of millions of animals, was subject to economic value which is how humans justify depriving them freedom, causing suffering and death.

Isabel, Reyes, Ana, Marcella and Teresa (in order of their appearance in the liberation) are now living with responsible people who will care for them in an appropriate place, away from the chain of exploitation.

You can also rescue animals every day. It's as simple as adopting a vegan lifestyle. Animal exploitation exists because there is demand for it. Because of ethics and justice, we must stop participating in this cycle by not consuming animal products when it comes time to feed ourselves, clothe ourselves or carry out any other daily act and not going to shows which use animals. It's time to start seeing things through other's eyes. It's time to begin respecting others.

Open all your cages: Go vegan.
Resistencia Aut�noma"

Spanish:
"Activistas de Resistencia Aut�noma realizan otro rescate abierto, en este caso de 5 gallinas.

Estos animales estaban condenados a una vida de explotaci�n dentro de una granja intensiva de la provincia de Toledo. Su existencia, como la de millones de animales, estaba sujeta al valor econ�mico con el que los humanos justificamos su privaci�n de libertad, sufrimiento y muerte.

Isabel, Reyes, Ana, Marcela y Teresa (seg�n su aparici�n en la liberaci�n) viven hoy con personas responsables que las cuidar�n en un lugar adecuado para ellas, alejadas de esa cadena de explotaci�n.

T� tambi�n puedes rescatar animales todos los d�as. Es tan sencillo como adoptar un estilo de vida vegano. La explotaci�n animal existe porque existe demanda de ella, por �tica y por justicia debemos dejar de participar en ese ciclo no consumiendo productos de origen animal a la hora de alimentarnos, vestirnos o realizar cualquier acto cotidiano ni asistiendo a espect�culos en los que utilicen animales. Es hora de empezar a ponernos en el lugar del otro. Es hora de empezar a respetar.

Abre todas tus jaulas: hazte vegano.

September 13, 2011 - CONSTRUCTION COMPANY VAN TORCHED

anonymous communique, translation from This Is Our Job:

"This morning, a van belonging to the multinational 'construction company' PERI was torched. PERI is one of the most powerful companies in the construction industry, which is dedicated to destroying the Earth through the building of highways, power stations, etc.

We no longer recognize life, colonized as it is by science and technology. Nor can we talk about life skills, as the dead have replaced the living. In this tomb of cement and sugar, we are surrounded by millions of dead objects. The nanotechnology and biotechnology industries are the new dictatorships to be toppled. They are the new masters of the world, patenting life and imposing a form of nonlife devoid of any kind of autonomy. In the war against them, we must arm ourselves with every possible method and attack incessantly. We recognize a part of nature in ourselves, and we fight against whomever would take away and destroy that nature. There is no time to lose. Our desire and passion will put an end to everything that dominates us.

Civilization (not anarchy!!!!) is the highest expression of order. Therefore, instead of the order and control that drive us to madness, we embrace chaos, individuality, and the uniqueness of every living thing.

Whoever talks about revolution and class struggle without critiquing science and technology has a corpse in their mouth.

For Billy, Silvia, Costa, Marco, and our insurgent brothers and sisters in Chile, Greece, Mexico, etc.

'And if your heart isn't broken by the knowledge of what they are doing to the world we love, then I feel sorry for you. Maybe you're no longer alive. But if the death of the planet we love makes you cry, then take those tears and turn them into action.'
�Rod Coronado"

Spanish:
"Esta madrugada fue incendiada una furgoneta de la multinacional 'constructora' PERI, una de la empresas m�s fuertes en el sector de la construcci�n, que se dedica a destruir la tierra mediante obras de autopistas, centrales elelctricas�..

Ya no reconocemos la vida, colonizada por la ciencia y la tecnologia, m�s bien podriamos hablar de la tecnica de la vida, donde lo muerto ha sustituido a lo vivo, rodeados de millones de objetos muertos, en esta tumba de cemento y azucar. Las empresas de nano y biotecnologia son las nuevas dictaduras a las que derribar, son ellas las nuevas amas del mundo, quienes patentan la vida y quienes nos imponen una forma de no-vida en la que desaparece cualquier forma de autonom�a, es en la guerra contra ellas en la que debemos armarnos de todos los medios posibles y atacar sin cesar, reconocernos una parte de la naturaleza y luchar contra qui�n nos aleja de ella y la destruye. No hay tiempo que esperar es nuestro deseo y pasi�n acabar contra todo lo que nos domina.

La civilizaci�n (y no la anarquia!!!!) es la m�xima expresi�n del orden, por eso abrazamos el caos, la individualidad y la peculiaridad de cada ser vivo, contra el orden y el control que nos llevan a la locura.

Quien habla de revoluci�n y de lucha de clases sin criticar la ciencia y la tecnologia tiene un cadaver en la boca.
A Billy, Silvia, Costa, Marco, a nuestras hermanxs insurrectxs en Chile, Grecia, Mexico��

On the night of July 30, 12 rabbits were liberated from a farm near Barcelona, where many species of animals are locked up, destined to suffer for the food industry.
After a couple of visits done at night to minimize risks, animal liberation activists entered the premises and took away as many animals as they could.
The bright, fearful eyes of the rabbits and the anxiety produced by the time spent imprisoned there with their brothers and sisters, separated from each other by small cages, became tranquil and they were surprised when for the first time in their lives they felt the wet grass under their feet.
We know that this action will not destabilize the oppressive capitalist system, but these 12 individuals were to be killed within a few days and we could not be passive before such injustice. The only pain was not being able to free them all...

LARGA VIDA AL FRENTE DE LIBERACI�N ANIMAL
FUERZA TORTUGA"


August 5, 2011 - 27 RABBITS RESCUED

anonymous communique (translation):

"Animals are considered property, the lives that belong to them are taken away by those who can make a profit off them; the foundation of this exploitation is discrimination against other species.

In the Spanish state around 60 million rabbits are killed annually, destined mainly to be used as food and fur. Each one of these animals is an irreplaceable individual capable of feeling, with an interest in enjoying their own lives in freedom.

Disregarding those rights derived from the above abilities and interests, the lives of exploited animals are snatched at the moment of birth.

Besides being used for their fur and meat, they are raised in farms that supply laboratories for scientific experiments, torturing them to death, and the rabbits also supply stores where they are sold as pets.

In response to all these crimes, this past April, animal liberation activists rescued 27 rabbits from a center of exploitation located in Spain. In this place, thousands of animals were crammed into small cages, deprived of freedom, their destiny already determined: the slaughterhouse.

After the rescue the animals were taken to a free and safe place where they
can enjoy their lives and follow their interests without being exploited.

27 lives were rescued from thousands, who we could not help, but each one of
these 27 lives is irreplaceable and important to the individual rabbit.

Each of the animals left behind remains in our memory.

As you read this communique, millions of animals around the world are suffering the consequences of speciesism in various centers of exploitation; from justice and respect comes the necessity to fight for their interests, to turn our breath into the voice of the voiceless.

Freedom for all animals, regardless of the species to which they belong. Free your slaves: Go Vegan."

Spanish:
"Como principio basado en la discriminaci�n hacia el resto de especies los animales son considerados propiedades de las que obtener un beneficio lucrativo y por ello son explotados, arrebat�ndoles la vida que les pertenece.

En el estado espa�ol son asesinados alrededor de 60.000.000 de conejos anualmente, destinados principalmente al sector peletero y alimenticio. Cada uno de estos animales es un individuo irreemplazable con capacidad de sentir, con inter�s en disfrutar de su propia vida en libertad.

Creando una desconsideraci�n hacia los derechos que derivan de las citadas capacidades e intereses, las vidas de los animales explotados son arrebatadas desde el momento de su nacimiento.

Adem�s de ser utilizados para obtener su piel y su carne, tambi�n son criados en granjas que abastecen a laboratorios para experimentar cient�ficamente
con ellos, tortur�ndoles hasta la muerte; as� como la cr�a de conejos
destinados a abastecer tiendas en las que son vendidos como mascotas.

Como respuesta a todos estos cr�menes, el pasado mes de Abril, activistas por la liberaci�n animal rescataron 27 conejos de un centro de explotaci�n situado en Espa�a. En dicho lugar, millares de animales se encontraban hacinados en peque�as jaulas, privados de libertad y con un destino asegurado: el matadero.
Tras el rescate de los animales, se les llev� a un lugar libre y seguro, donde podr�n disfrutar de sus vidas y desarrollar sus intereses sin ser explotados.

Fueron 27 vidas rescatadas de entre miles, a las que no se pudo ayudar, pero cada una de estas 27 vidas resulta insustituible e importante para cada uno de ellos.

Cada uno de los animales que quedaron atr�s permanece en nuestro recuerdo.

Mientras lees este comunicado, millones de animales en todo el mundo se encuentran sufriendo las consecuencias del especismo en diversos centros de explotaci�n, es por ello que desde la justicia y el respeto nace la importancia de luchar por sus intereses, de convertir nuestro aliento en la voz de los silenciados.

Libertad para todos los animales, independientemente de la especie a la que pertenezcan. Libera a tus esclavos: Hazte Vegano."

Once again, like so many other times before, the entrances to Madrid's underground appeared at dawn covered with animal liberation graffiti.

The detained activists's belong to two organizations, each in its own way have spent several years bringing to light investigations of fur farms, raising awareness of the true situation of the animals exploited and killed by the fur trade. (www.pielesasesinato.com,www.granjasdevisones.org)

Open rescue of 8 trout

Activists from Autonomous Resistance rescued and released 8 trout in Madrid.

These animals were kept in a special operation, an inhabited property in which there was a small 'illegal' farm. In it dozens of fish were raised for human consumption. The rescue was carried out with limited resources and as quickly as possible because within just a few days the number of individuals there had dropped alarmingly.

These 8 fish were the only ones left in the place and were rescued at night and quickly transported to a reservoir where, before dawn, they were swimming freely in a place that was safe and suitable for them.

These eight individuals were different and each one was unique and irreplaceable. It doesn't matter the means or the circumstances in which an animal is exploited, it is something unfair in and of itself. All animals want to live and enjoy our lives regardless of our species. Break the species barrier: If you feel, then you deserve respect and the only way to truly respect all animals is to adopt a vegan lifestyle. "

En ella lleg� a haber decenas de peces criados para consumo humano. El rescate se realiz� con escasos recursos y con la mayor celeridad posible debido a que en cuesti�n de pocos d�as el n�mero de individuos descendi� de manera alarmante.

Estos 8 peces eran los �nicos que quedaban en el lugar y fueron rescatados por la noche y transportados de manera r�pida a un embalse en donde antes de que amaneciera ya nadaban libremente, en un lugar seguro e id�neo para ellos.

"Estos 8 individuos eran diferentes y cada uno era �nico e irrepetible. No importa en qu� medios o en qu� circunstancias un animal sea explotado; es algo injusto en s� mismo.

Just like a few months ago when over 70 works of graffiti appeared in the entrances to the Madrid metro against the dirty business of bullfighting, recently a large group of very loosely coordinated people agreed to return to the streets to make clear that we will not stop until we achieve our goals. On this occasion 98 entrances in the suburbs appeared covered with slogans against experimentation on nonhuman animals. The objective was to carry the idea to the neighborhoods, to the streets, to our neighbors.

"June 10, 2011: 65 rabbits raised for meat rescued from a farm in Cordoba.

In a center of exploitation the animals were found in miserable conditions: overcrowded, with injuries and infections, some shared a cage with their brothers who were already dead.

But the essence of the animal rights movement is not to question the manner in which animals are exploited, but rather to criticize animal exploitation in itself. Our opposition is directed at the fact that animals are regarded as resources for the simple fact of not belonging to our species.

The only way to respect animals is to not use them for our benefit.

Pero la esencia del movimiento por los derechos animales no es cuestionar la forma en la que los animales son explotados, sino criticar la explotaci�n animal en s� misma.

"196 partridges released in Seville

The oppression that animals suffer has many facets, one of which is hunting. It was in this sphere where on Tuesday, June 7, 196 partridges who were awaiting death after a short life behind the bars of a cage were liberated.

In the wild, partridges live in family flocks of 16 to 25 members, taking care of their plumage with sand baths and taking advantage of water they find from the dew. They feel and enjoy life, and because of this they deserve equal consideration regardless of the species to which they belong.

This liberation is an act of solidarity with people in prison, while at the same time seeking a public debate to reflect on our relationship with other animals.

We propose that you adopt a lifestyle free of animal products, thus avoiding the enslavement of millions of animals in slaughterhouses, farms, laboratories, animal shows, etc.

In addition, if the words respect and equality mean anything to you, we encourage you to go one step further and work with the animal liberation movement in a firm and committed way, to act in the way we'd like people to act if it were us who were in a similar situation. A better world is possible and depends on us. Be part of the change you wish to see.

En libertad, las perdices viven en bandos familiares de entre 16 y 25 miembros, cuidan su plumaje mediante ba�os de arena y aprovechan el agua condensada por el roc�o. Sienten y disfrutan, por lo cual merecen una consideraci�n igualitaria independientemente de la especie a la que pertenezcan.

Esta liberaci�n constituye un acto de solidaridad con los individuos presos, buscando al mismo tiempo un debate social donde se reflexione sobre nuestra relaci�n con los demas animales.

Te proponemos que adoptes un estilo de vida exento de productos de origen animal, evitando de este modo la esclavitud de millones de animales en mataderos, granjas, laboratorios, espect�culos con animales, etc.

Si ademas las palabras respeto e igualdad te dicen algo, te animamos a dar un paso m�s y colaborar con el movimimiento por la liberaci�n animal de una manera firme y comprometida, as� como a actuar de la misma forma que nos gustaria que lo hicieran si fueramos nosotros los que estuvi�ramos en una situaci�n similar.

Later they were taken to a veterinarian; in addition to suffering gastrointestinal damage, all had parasites. Nonetheless, at this time they are almost recovered and in good health.

Enough of turning vegan public relations organizations into legends and fictional heroes with sad faces holding rescued animals. Enough of the posturing, boasting and attention seeking, all they're looking for is the limelight and recognition.

The limelight is for those liberated, not for the liberators

Go vegan"

Spanish:
"La noche del 22 de Abril varios activistas entraron en una granja de pollos de engorde en la provincia de Toledo rescatando a 9 de ellos de entre los miles que all� quedaron. Posteriormente se les llev� al veterinario pues adem�s de, particularmente, sufrir algunos da�os gastrointestinales, todos ten�an par�sitos. Sin embargo, en este momento est�n practicamente recuperados y gozan de buena salud.

Dedicamos en particular dicho rescate a todas aquellas personas que luchan por la noche sin una organizaci�n medi�tica de por medio, a aquellas que sin un nombre, sin un abogado, sin un veterinario y sin herramientas tecnol�gicas millonarias, y con la �nica fe de la contundencia por la liberaci�n animal rescatan animales y se juegan el pellejo d�a tras d�a. Basta ya de mitificar organizaciones veganas medi�ticas y h�roes ficticios con cara de triste sujetando animales rescatados. Basta de poses, alardeos y llamadas de atenci�n que �nicamente buscan protagonismo y reconocimiento.

El protagonismo para los liberados, no para los liberadores

Go vegan"

April 25, 2011 - 44 RABBITS RESCUED

anonymous communique (translation):

"One early morning during the month of March 2011, several animal rights activists carried out the rescue of 44 rabbits from a farm in the Spanish State. We found thousands of rabbits shut up in cages where they spend their entire lives, leaving them only to make the journey to the slaughterhouse, where they will be killed, victims of speciesism.

After the rescue of these 44 individuals we went to a free and safe place, where for the first time in their lives they had physical contact with the earth, they sniffed the vegetation and enjoyed the warmth their bodies offered in what were their first burrows.

There they will spend the rest of their days, free from the slavery that had been imposed on them due to the fact of belonging to a different species. Now they will be the exclusive owners of their lives, and so justly enjoying the freedom that had been denied them.

We remember that on this night 44 individuals were freed, but inside that farm thousands of individuals remain who did not have the same luck. At this very moment, billions of animals around the world continue living the drama of their daily life, exploited until their death by arbitrary and unfair discrimination, deprived of the consideration that due to their sentience they deserve.

All of us as sentient individuals desire and deserve the same respect, regardless of species, race, gender or intelligence.

We want to express that all of us activists who participated in the rescue are vegan, which means the complete rejection of collaboration with animal exploitation in all its forms. Saving lives is a daily action in which we can all participate: As vegans we reject the enslavement of the lives of many individuals.

Speciesism is discrimination that produces much suffering, and is the most widespread of all forms of oppression that we find today. The killing of other animals is part of daily life and it is completely normalized, which makes it so essential that as many people as possible join this fight.

In memory of all those left behind, there is no forgetting.

Do not finance animal exploitation: Go vegan now."

Spanish:
"En una madrugada del pasado mes de Marzo de 2011, varios activistas por los derechos animales realizamos el rescate de 44 conejos de una explotaci�n situada en el Estado espa�ol. Encontramos miles de conejos afinados en jaulas, en las que pasar�n la totalidad de sus vidas, saliendo �nicamente de ellas para realizar el trayecto al matadero, lugar donde ser�n asesinadas, v�ctimas del especismo.

Tras el rescate de estos 44 individuos nos dirigimos a un lugar libre y seguro, donde por primera vez en sus vidas tuvieron contacto f�sico con la tierra, olisquearon la vegetaci�n y disfrutaron del calor mutuo ofrecido por sus cuerpos en las que fueron sus primeras madrigueras.

All� pasar�n el resto de sus d�as, libres de la esclavitud que se les hab�a impuesto por el hecho de pertenecer a una especie diferente. Ahora ellos ser�n los �nicos due�os de sus vidas, disfrutando as� por justicia de la libertad que les fue negada.

Queremos recordar que esa noche 44 individuos fueron libres, pero dentro de la granja visitada permanecen miles de individuos que no corrieron la misma suerte. En estos mismos instantes, miles de millones de animales en todo el mundo contin�an viviendo el drama de su realidad cotidiana, explotados hasta su muerte por una discriminaci�n arbitraria e injusta,
despose�dos de la consideraci�n que merecen en base a su capacidad de sentir.

Todos los individuos sintientes merecemos y deseamos el mismo respeto, independientemente de la especie, raza, sexo o inteligencia que nos caracterice.

Queremos indicar que todos los activistas que participamos en dicho rescate somos veganos, lo que implica el completo rechazo a la colaboraci�n con la explotaci�n animal en cualquiera de sus �mbitos. Salvar vidas es una acci�n cotidiana en la que todos podemos participar: viviendo veganos estamos ofreciendo a multitud de individuos la abstenci�n de la esclavitud de sus vidas.

El especismo es la discriminaci�n que m�s sufrimiento produce, y a su vez es la m�s generalizada de todas las formas de opresi�n que encontramos en la actualidad. Los asesinatos al resto de animales forman parte de la cotidianeidad mientras se encuentran completamente normalizados, por tanto resulta imprescindible que el mayor n�mero de personas se sume a esta lucha.

En memoria de todos aquellos que quedaron atr�s, no existe el olvido.

No financies la explotaci�n: hazte vegano."

April 21, 2011 - LIBERATION OF 26 DUCKS

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

"26 ducks rescued from a foie gras farm

It's time to rethink our relationship with nonhuman animals, who in today's society are exploited in so many different ways: slaughterhouses, farms, laboratories, etc, simply because of the species to which they belong.

The most direct way of achieving an end to this situation, to stop the slaughter, is to adopt a vegan lifestyle, free from any products of animal origin, based on equality regardless of race, sex or species.
As in other liberation movements, solidarity with oppressed individuals is essential and their liberation is an action vindicating their rights, and also contributing to awareness about the problem.

With this in mind, on March 19, 2011 a group of people motivated to fight for animal liberation entered a foie gras farm and freed 26 of the thousands of individuals locked in the breeding sheds, whose purpose is to produce a cruel and speciest food.
All of them now enjoy their freedom in a safe place.

Through this action we remember compa�ero Walter Bond, a prisoner for defending animals, publicly asking for support during these difficult times in prison.

Equality, solidarity and freedom. Animal Liberation."

Spanish:
"Rescatados 26 patos de una granja de cr�a dedicada a foie gras

Es momento de replantearnos la relaci�n que tenemos con los animales no humanos, que en la sociedad actual son explotados de las m�s diversas formas y metodos: mataderos, granjas, laboratorios, etc, s�lo por la especie a la que pertenecen.

La forma m�s directa de lograr que esta situaci�n acabe, de detener la masacre, es adoptar un estilo de vida vegano, exento de todo tipo de productos de origen animal, basada en la igualdad independientemente de la raza, sexo o especie.
Al igual que en otros movimientos de liberaci�n, la solidaridad con los individuos oprimidos es fundamental y su liberaci�n constituye un hecho b�sico para la revindicaci�n de sus derechos, adem�s de contribuir a la concienciaci�n sobre el problema.

De esta forma, el 19 de marzo de 2011 un grupo de personas motivadas con la lucha por la liberaci�n animal accedi� a una granja de foie gras, liberando a 26 de los miles de individuos encerrados en las naves de crecimiento, cuyo fin es una alimentaci�n cruel y especista.
Todos ellos gozan ahora mismo de su libertad en un lugar seguro.

Se recuerda a trav�s de esta acci�n al compa�ero Walter Bond, preso en estos momentos por defender a los animales, pidiendo p�blicamente un apoyo en estos duros momentos en la c�rcel.

Igualdad, solidaridad y libertad. Liberaci�n Animal."

April 14, 2011 - SEVERAL BUTCHERS, SLAUGHTERHOUSE TRUCK, GRAFFITIED

received anonymously (translation):

"This communique has been sent to the newspaper where a story appeared claiming actions against butchers, a tobacconist (due to experimentation), against hunting and a zoo.

http://www.prensadeloriente.com/fielato/fielato.htm

We are writing to you regarding the article published on the cover of your newspaper 'El Fielato' about the graffiti that appeared in Arriondas and Cangas de On�sin, and elsewhere against hunting and zoos.

On Monday night animal liberation activists decorated several butchers, a truck from a slaughterhouse and a tobacconist with the goal of denouncing the exploitation and consequent death sentence to which they subject thousands of millions of innocents every year. Animals are tortured, confined, exploited and killed to satisfy the whims of human beings; we do not need to use animals to dress ourselves, entertain ourselves, use for experiments, or to feed ourselves.

We want to stress that these actions are not motivated by reasons of ecology or politics but rather for justice for animals.

Until every animal is free and every cage is destroyed, our actions will not stop.

These are the reasons that motivated us to carry out these actions:
In this one-hour documentary, the hidden reality of animal exploitation is revealed:

Les escribimos en relaci�n al art�culo publicado en la portada de su peri�dico El Fielato acerca de las pintadas aparecidas en Arriondas y Cangas de On�s, as� como en otras poblaciones en contra de la caza y de los zoos de la zona.

La noche del lunes activistas por la liberaci�n animal decoramos varias carnicer�as, un cami�n del matadero y un estanco con el fin de denunciar la explotaci�n y la consiguiente condena a muerte a la que est�n sometidos miles de millones de inocentes al a�o. Los animales son torturados, confinados, explotados y asesinados para satisfacer unos caprichos del ser humano puesto que no necesitamos vestirnos, divertirnos, experimentar ni tampoco alimentarnos con ellos.

As� mismo queremos recalcar que estas acciones no est�n motivadas por razones de ecolog�a ni pol�tica sino por justicia para los animales.

Hasta que todo animal sea libre y toda jaula sea destruida no cesar�n nuestras acciones.

Estas son las razones que nos motivan a llevar a cabo estas acciones:

anonymous report (translation):

"On February 16, 2011 a group of friends went to a poultry slaughterhouse in a town on the outskirts of Madrid with the intention of rescuing as many chickens as possible.

After the night shift at the slaughterhouse there were a few chickens left that escaped from the executioners and from the trucks, staying hidden in the dirty corners at the mercy of hunger, thirst, and weather conditions.

They were found and rescued from that horrible place; they were taken to a safe place where they will live free, healthy and happy.

We publish this rescue not only to report the good news, but also to give strength and encouragement to all those people who can empathize with the pain of others and who want to end their suffering.

Tras la nocturna jornada de trabajo del matadero, all� quedaron las pocas gallinas que consiguieron escapar de los verdugos y de los camiones, qued�ndose escondidas en sucios rincones a merced del hambre, la sed y las condiciones meteorologicas.

En esta ocasi�n fueron localizadas y rescatadas de aquel horrible lugar, llev�ndolas a un sitio c�lido y seguro, donde vivir�n libres, sanas y felices.

Hacemos p�blico este rescate no s�lo por informar de la buena noticia, si no tambi�n para dar fuerza y �nimo a todas aquellas personas capaces de empatizar con el dolor ajeno y que quieran acabar con el sufrimiento de alg�n individuo.

"On the 1st of March some human animals entered Wonderland circus and rescued 2 ducks that were used for events which are profiting at the expense of slavery. The payment for their work, some food and a tiny cage in which they could almost not move, where they spent all their time until they were compelled to act.

These beings are finally free and no longer have to suffer the exploitation to which they were subjected.

Wonderland circus, we advise you to stop using animals for profit at their expense.

We will not stop until the circuses are only human to humans, and the world is free of greedy exploiters.

Estos seres sintientes por fin son libres y ya no tendr�n que sufrir la explotaci�n a la que eran sometidos.

Al circo Wonderland aconsejarle que deje de usar animales para lucrarse a su costa.

No pararemos hasta que los circos sean solamente de humanos y para humanos, y el mundo est� libre de explotadores codiciosos.

January 12, 2011 - THIRTY SIX DOGS RESCUED FROM HARLAN INTERFAUNA BREEDING FACILITY

Harlan Interfauna

anonymous communique (click here for a photo gallery from the rescue, and here to view video; see below for details about downloading the photographs/video):

"Thirty six dogs have been rescued by a group of animal rights activists from the breeding facility of animals for experiments Harlan Interfauna located in the outskirts of the catalonian town Sant Feliu de Codines (Catalonia, Spain), offering a new life to these animals in this new year.

Once inside we documented the miserable life of these animals and start preparing their transportation. Permanently locked in the kennels without being able to run, play, explore their environment or relate with each other, several of them had sores �as shown in the images we filmed that night- since they had to sleep in winter in direct contact with the cold concrete that was covered with their own feces and urine.

One of the rescued dogs was living in total isolation without any kind of contact with the other animals. This is a form of psychological torture for social animals who need the company of other animals. Others were so anxious on having any contact and stimuli after been in those kennels for nearly four years that they desperately tried to touch us through the bars and call our attention in any way possible. When we entered into their kennel, they excitedly jumped onto us looking for affection. Few minutes later they happily accompanied us out of that place in the first walk free they do in their whole lives.

Given their mental and physical health, all rescued animals have been examined by vets. Some required all our attention to help them overcome the constant fear they were living in. All of them have already been brought to safe homes where they will be loved and protected. We don't know how long will it take till they trust humans again but we are sure that the attention and care they receive in their new homes will manage to open its way to their hearts and they'll live happy and safe for the rest of their lives.

After a harsh life in the catalonian facilities of Harlan Interfauna �no different from Green Hill in Italy or Marshall in EEUU- a worse fate was waiting for these animals: been transported to vivisection labs in which they would be permanently locked in cages, they would only get out of them to be used in experiments. All of them were born with the sentence of becoming victims of toxicity tests, biomedical and veterinary research, or military experiments that would finally end up with their lives.

The activists who have carried out this action are vegans and reject speciesism as well as any kind of animal exploitation, including vivisection as in this case, or the consumption of animal products, their use in shows or for our clothing. We think the only important characteristic to respect others is their capacity to feel, not their species, sex or race of belonging. We want to advance toward a society free from discriminations where non human animals are not regarded as inferior beings to be used as resources, but individuals whose rights deserve full respect.

We will continue rescuing animals and denouncing their exploitation until the last cage is empty and other forms of oppression to animals become part of the past.

Lastly, we want to dedicate this action to all the activists who fight to end vivisection and remember all the animals that are right now in the breeding facilities and laboratories."

Spanish:
"La noche del 1 de enero de 2011 un grupo de activistas por los derechos animales rescatamos a 36 perros del criadero de animales para experimentaci�n Harlan Interfauna situado a las afueras de la localidad catalana de Sant Feliu de Codines dando en este a�o nuevo una nueva vida a estos animales.

Una vez dentro procedimos a documentar la vida tan miserable a la que estos animales hab�an sido condenados y a preparar su traslado. Encerrados permanentemente sin poder correr, jugar, explorar su entorno o relacionarse con otros varios de ellos presentaban adem�s llagas en sus cuerpos �como evidencian las im�genes que grabamos esa noche� debido a que ten�an que dormir en pleno invierno en contacto directo con el fr�o suelo de cemento cubierto de sus propias heces y orina.

Uno de los perros rescatados viv�a totalmente aislado del resto sin ning�n tipo de contacto con los dem�s animales. Esto es una forma de tortura psicol�gica para un animal social que precisa la compa��a de otros con los que poder relacionarse. Otros estaban tan ansiosos por tener alg�n contacto y est�mulo tras cerca de cuatro a�os encerrados que trataban desesperadamente de tocarnos entre los barrotes y llamar nuestra atenci�n como pod�an. Cuando entramos en el recinto en el que se encontraban se abalanzaron entusiasmados sobre nosotros buscando nuestro cari�o. Pocos minutos despu�s nos acompa�aban contentos fuera de aquel lugar en el que era el primer paseo que daban en libertad en toda su vida.

Dado su estado de salud f�sica y psicol�gica, todos los animales rescatados han sido examinados por veterinarios. Algunos precisan de toda nuestra atenci�n para ayudarles a superar el constante miedo en el que viv�an. Todos ellos han sido llevados ya a lugares seguros donde ser�n queridos y protegidos. Desconocemos cu�nto tiempo tardar�n en confiar de nuevo en los humanos pero estamos seguros que el afecto y los cuidados que reciben ya en sus nuevos hogares conseguir�n abrirse camino hasta sus corazones y podr�n vivir felices y a salvo el resto de sus vidas.

Tras la dura vida en las instalaciones catalanas de Harlan Interfauna �y al igual que sucede en las de Green Hill en Italia y Marshall en EEUU entre otras� un destino a�n peor aguardaba a estos animales: ser trasladados a laboratorios de vivisecci�n en los que ser�an encerrados permanentemente en jaulas de las que s�lo saldr�an para ser sometidos a experimentos. Todos ellos hab�an nacido con la condena de convertirse en las v�ctimas de pruebas de toxicidad, experimentos de investigaci�n biom�dica y veterinaria, aprendizaje en facultades o experimentos militares que acabar�an finalmente con sus vidas.

Los activistas que hemos llevado a cabo esta acci�n somos veganos y rechazamos el especismo as� como toda forma de explotaci�n animal, como la vivisecci�n en este caso, el consumo de productos animales, su uso en espect�culos o para nuestra vestimenta porque consideramos que lo �nico importante a la hora de respetar a alguien es su capacidad para sentir y no su especie, sexo o raza. Queremos avanzar hacia una sociedad libre de discriminaciones en la que los dem�s animales no sean considerados seres inferiores a los que utilizar como recursos a nuestra disposici�n, sino individuos que merecen absoluto respeto. Seguiremos rescatando animales y denunciando su explotaci�n hasta que la �ltima jaula quede vac�a y la vivisecci�n y otras formas de opresi�n hacia los animales formen parte del pasado.

Por �ltimo, queremos dedicar esta acci�n a todos los activistas que luchan para acabar con la vivisecci�n y recordar a todos los animales que se encuentran en estos momentos en los criaderos y laboratorios."
