December 12, 2008 -- Windows Smashed at Infamous Restaurant

anonymous report:

"Sweden, Umea, 10/12

On the night of the 10th we once again smashed all the windows of the Resturant Garaget.

The resturant has made itself famous by not only serving its usual killed lambs and babypigs, but also cooking a whole 270 kilo ox.
As long as animals are being tortured and killed, the ALF is not going to rest!
ALF"

Swedish:
"Ume� 10 december

Natten till onsdag krossades �nnu en g�ng alla f�nster p� Resturang Garaget i Ume�.

Resturangen har p� senare tid uppm�rksammats f�r att dom ut�ver sin vanliga meny av m�rdade lam och sm�grisar, �ven grillat en hel oxe p� 270 kilo.
S� l�nge n�gon utnyttjar, torterar, och d�dar djur, kommer DBF aldrig att vila!

November 26, 2008 -- Tens of Thousands of Salmon Released

anonymous communique (photo by Leif Wikberg / allehanda.se):

"Sweden, �ngermanland, 21 november

On the night of 21 November more than 100,000 salmon were liberated from two fish farms in northen Sweden.
These two fish farms are a part of the huge Swedish fish farming industry that kills over 5 billion fish every year.
In a fish farm, tens of thousands of fish live cramped in net-cages without any chance to engage in their natural behaviors, like traveling long distances.
Fish are individuals who feel both pain and stress, and to breed, keep them in cages and kill them, however it is done, is unacceptable.

We wanted to give as many of these individuals as possible a chance to live the rest of their lives in freedom, instead of ending up on a dinner table.
We realise that some of the released fish will die in the wild because they were born in captivity and may have trouble learning to finding their own food, etc. But there is a big difference between dying in freedom than in captivity, and it is guaranteed that more fish are going to survive in the wild than if they were left in the fish farm.
We are also aware that the liberation of the fish may have a negative effect on the ocean ecosystem. We hold the farmers responsible for any such effects, because it is their oppressive actions that forced us to act.

At N�ske Lax AB more that 100,000 salmon were liberated by cutting all the net-cages that were holding the fish. A boat motor was also destroyed and some tires slashed. A spray can was emptied painting messages from the DBF.
The farm is not insured and after economic loses of millions of Swedish Kroner, the farmer doesn't think he will be able to open up the business again.

The second farm visited the same night was �lands fiskf�r�dlings, a big floating facility hundreds of meters out in the sea. After rowing out to the facility we cut as many net-cages as possible before dawn, releasing lots of fish.

Direct action saves lives!
Both by saving individual animals and also by economic sabotage we make it harder and less profitable to continue to torture and kill animals.

For the animals!
DBF (Swedish Animal Liberation Front)"

Swedish:
"21 november, N�ske, �ngermanland

Natten till den 21 november sl�pptes 100 000tals regnb�gslaxar ut fr�n tv� fiskodlingar l�ngs �ngermanlands havskust.
Dessa tv� fiskodlingar �r en del av sveriges enorma fiskeindustri som varje �r d�dar �ver 5 miljarder fiskar.
I en fiskodling lever tiotusentals fiskar t�tt packade i n�tkassar utan m�jlighet att bete sig naturligt, som t.ex. r�ra sig �ver stora ytor.

Fiskar �r individer som k�nner b�de sm�rta och stress och att f�ra upp, sp�rra in och d�da djur, p� vilket s�tt det �n m� vara, �r of�rsvarbart.
Vi ville d�rf�r ge s� m�nga av dessa individer som m�jligt en chans till att leva resten av sina liv i frihet, ist�llet f�r att hamna p� en tallrik.

Givetvis kommer en del av dom frisl�ppta fiskarna att d� i det vilda p.g.a. att de �r uppf�dda i f�ngenskap och inte har f�r vana att t.ex. skaffa sin egen mat. Men, det �r en principiellt vikltig skillnad p� att d� i frihet eller f�ngenskap. Och dessutom kommer garanterat fler �verleva i det fria �n inne p� fiskodlingen. Vi �r ocks� medvetna om att dessa utsl�pp av fiskar kan ha en negativ p�verkan p� biotoperna i havet. En s�dan konsekvens kommer vi helt h�lla fiskodlarna ansvariga f�r d� det �r dessa f�rtryckare som tvingat oss att agera.

Vid bes�ket hos N�ske Lax AB sl�pptes �ver 100 000 regnb�gslaxar ut genom att vi klippte upp alla odlingens n�tkassar. Dom fick �ven en b�tmotor f�rst�rd och d�cken p� ett b�tsl�p punkterat. En sprayburk t�mdes ocks� p� platts med budskap fr�n DBF.
Fiskodlingen �r of�rs�krad och eftersom aktionen skapat f�rluster p� miljonbelopp, kommer �garen troligen att l�gga ner verksamheten.

Den andra fiskodlingen som bes�ktes var �lands fiskf�r�dlings sverigefilial, som �r en stor flytande anl�ggning som ligger n�gra hundra meter ut i havet.
Efter att vi rott fram till anl�ggningen klipptes s� m�nga n�tkassar som m�jligt upp innan gryningen.

Direkt aktion r�ddar liv!
Dels faktiska individers liv och dels genom att ekonomiskt sabotage g�r det sv�rare och mindre l�nsamt att forts�tta d�da fiskar och andra djur p� l�pande band.

F�r djuren!

October 6, 2008 -- Region's Last Fur Farm Remains Closed

anonymous press release:

"FUR BAN IN DALARNA - DBF WINS OVER MINK FARM IN HEMMINGSBO

On september 26th an inspection was carried out on Erik Wahlins mink farm in Falun. It was almost one year ago that Djurens Befrielsefront (Swedish ALF) claimed a fur ban in that area after releasing 800 minks from the farm. The activists promised that the ban would be upheld by themselves after the faith in the politicians has been lost after they ignore the animal welfare law. Now DBF's own inspectors can say that the ban in upheld and that Dalarna is fur-free!

After three liberations of mink and an attempted arson attack on the farm all that is left on the farm is 2 empty sheds on what used to be Dalarnas last fur farm.

The law must be followed so the question is - which region is next to get a fur ban from the protectors of animals?

- DBF"

Swedish:
"P�LSF�RBUDET I DALARNA H�LLER - DBF VINNER �VER MINKFARMEN I HEMMINGSBO

Den 26 september utf�rdes en inspektion av Erik Wahlins minkfarm utanf�r Falun. Det var n�stan ett �r sedan som Djurens Befrielsefront (DBF) inf�rde ett p�lsf�rbud i l�net efter att de sl�ppt ut 800 minkar fr�n farmen.
Aktivisterna lovade att f�rbudet skulle uppr�tth�llas av dem sj�lva d� de f�rlorat sin tilltro till politiker som st�ndigt ignorerar djurskyddslagen. Nu kan DBF:s egna djurskyddsinspekt�rer meddela att p�lsf�rbudet h�ller och att Dalarna nu �ntligen �r p�lsfritt!
Efter sammanlagt tre frisl�ppningar av minkar och ett f�rs�k till en anlagd brand st�r nu bara tre tomma tr�skelett kvar av l�ngorna p� det som en g�ng i tiden var k�nt som Dalarnas sista p�lsdjursfarm.
Lagen �r till f�r att f�ljas s� fr�gan f�r bli - vilket l�n st�r n�st p� tur f�r ett p�lsf�rbud fr�n djurens beskyddare?

October 3, 2008 -- "Your Loss - Their Freedom"

As many as 6,000 mink were released from the Hulans fur farm outside Svenljunga in the early morning hours of Friday, October 3. Fencing was cut and surveillance cameras on site were disabled. Ten of the 23 sheds on the farm were emptied of animals. "Din f�rlust - deras frihet" ("Your loss - their freedom") was painted on a wall.

The Hulans fur farm was raided once before, in October 1997 when 5,000 mink were released from cages.

reported anonymously:

"Two more fur shops give in to the actions in the Swedish capital!

When we recieved notice that the fur shops Skinnkompaniet and
furrier Eva-Carina in Stockholm will join the growing number of fur
shops that have closed in the last year it hit us that we are close to
winning the war against the bloody fur industry. The fur shops are the fur
industrys face to the public and after all the actions with paint,
etching fluid, tar and stones they are in serious need of a face
lift. So far seven fur shops in Stockholm have taken the wise decision
to close down in the last 12 months. For the remaining shops only one
question remains - how much money do they want to have left in their
savings account when they retire? We suggest that they close down and
place their money in a good pension insurance instead of sticking in
against the DBF. We guarantee that you will never profit from selling
fur again. - DBF"

June 7, 2008 -- Hundreds Freed

anonymous report:

"03/06/2008 Vasteras: On the night of the third of june we entered the biggest breeder of pheasants in Sweden, NB Fasaneri, outside Vasteras. We cut a big hole in the fence that surrounds the farm and snuck up to the fifty meter long outside cage that kept hundreds of birds jailed, all of the farms breeding pheasants. After starting by cuting a hole in the cage so we could enter we then cut all the netting on the top that was keeping the birds from escaping. When we were finished we could see one after another flying off to freedom beyond the cage and beyond the farm. Several hundred pheasants flew to freedom that night from the cage that used to entrap them in the wait for the brutal hunt and slaughter but this time not a single gun shot could be heared. - DBF"

V? inne p?omr?et sm? vi fram till den femtio meter l?ga uteburen som h?l hundratals fasaner f?gslade, alla avelsfasaner p?anl?gningen. Vi klippte oss in buren och b?jade d?efter klippa s?der det n?t?ke som fungerade som ett tak f? att f?hindra att fasanerna flyr. Pl?sligt stod inte l?gre n?ot i v?en f? f?larnas flykt till friheten. En efter en fl? de upp mot himmelen och ut ?er

anonymous message reported by the Djurens Befrielsefronts St?grupp (Swedish Animal Liberation Front Supporter's Group):

May 22, 2008 -- 81 Hens Liberated

anonymous report:

"On May 19th activists from the Djurens Befrielsefront made a visit to ?ersdals Jordbruks battery hen farm in Bara. On the farm thousands of hens are kept in bad conditions. Feathers, feces and dirt covered everything inside the building including the cages and the animals kept in them. The first thing the activists saw was two chickens squeezed to death between the cages.

- They had fallen out and just left to die there trapped under the conveyor belt. The owners had presumably not been at the farm house in a long time since everything was run automatically, says one of the activists.

The animals were in poor condition and very stressed. They had during their lives in the tiny cages developed stereotypical behaviour and picked each other severely. Tonight 81 hens were liberated, one who turned out to be a rooster. Usually the rooster chickens are sorted out after they have been hatched and killed as they are of no value in the egg industry.

- These birds will never again see the insides of a cage, and will live out their lives in new homes where they will be treated with love and respect. To let the owners know that we had been there we sprayed 'House of animal abuse' on the outside of the building, easy to spot from the nearby road."

Swedish:
" 80 h?or och en tupp r?dade i djurr?tsaktion.
Den 19:e maj bes?te aktivister ur Djurens Befrielsefront ?ersdals Jordbruks h?seri i Bara. P?g?den h?ls flera tusen h?or under vidriga f?h?landen i en smutsig lada. Fj?rar, g?sel och damm t?kte inredningen. Byggnaden var ost?ad och vansk?t, liksom djuren i burarna. Det f?sta som m?te aktivisterna n? de steg in i ladan var tv?h?or som satt fastkl?da i g?selbandet under burarna.
-De h? h?orna har ramlat ur burarna och l?nats att d? fastkl?da i g?selbandet. ?arna har uppenbarligen inte bes?t anl?gningen p?v?digt l?ge eftersom utfodring, g?sling och lampor styrs automatiskt, s?er en av aktivisterna.
Djuren p?h?seriet var i d?igt skick och v?digt stressade. Under livet i de tr?ga burarna har de utvecklat stereotypa beteenden och hackat varandra sv?t. Under nattens aktion r?dades 81 h?or varav en visade sig vara en tupp. I normala fall sorteras tuppkycklingarna ut efter kl?kning f? att malas ner levande i en stor kvarn.
-De h? f?larna kommer aldrig mer att se en bur, nu f? de leva sina liv i nya hem d? de behandlas med k?lek och respekt. Deras liv som produktionsmedel ? ?er, deras nya liv som fria har bara b?jat, forts?ter aktivisterna.
F? att ?arna skulle m?ka att vi varit d?, d?de inte sj?vmant bes?er djuren sprayades 'H? BEDRIVS VANV?D AV DJUR' p?en v?g, v? synlig fr? v?en. I v?sta fall kanske grannar eller f?bipasserande kan tipsa.

January 10, 2008 - Another Busy Month for Swedish Activists

reported by the Djurens Befrielsefronts St?grupp (Swedish Animal Liberation Front Supporter's Group):

"November 30 - Stockholm; Letter to a furrier: Agneta! You seem to live a comfortable life together with Peter. You are doing well financially. Live in a fancy part of town. Have your own company. But with power comes responsibility Agneta! When one has it as good as you have there is no reason for you to live like a parasite on the torture and death of animals. You have a choice. One that the animals never got. Your choices have consequences. On friday 30 november we made a home visit and painted your car and sliced its tires. At the same time other activists covered your fur shop in red paint across the town. We are watching your choices Agneta. Remember that. You are the cause and we are the effect. We will never tolerate animal cruelty. Never ever! Against all oppression! - Female separatist cell of DBF

November - Helsingborg; Several big windows at Nilssons P?s (fur shop) were destroyed with glass etching fluid. Red paint was also poured on the entrance. - DBF

December 27 - Stockholm; Fur shop sloganized. - DBF

December 28 - Stockholm; Furrier Agneta Str?gren finally washed her shop's store front so we had to paint it all over again with red paint. - DBF

December 28 - Malm? A & C Revisionsbyr?(accounting agency) was visited by militant animal right activists. The reason for the attack was that the company is doing the fur shop Havg?ds papers and after several warnings and actions they keep trying to make money on animal suffering. Havg?ds has already lost two accountants due to the DBF's actions and have been close to shutting down as a company always need an accountant to go through their finances.

A&C Revisionsbyr?and Mikael Cressy is keeping Havg?ds P?s going and they will be hit even harder if they dont sever all ties immediately. Tonight we glued all their locks and one big glass jar of tar and one with paint was thrown through their windows.

This was just a taste of what awaits you in the coming year.

All who do business with Havg?ds P?s and everyone who profits on animal suffering will be targets for our actions.

I natt limmades l?en p?deras frist?nde kontorslokal och stor burk med r?f?g kastades in genom ett f?ster. Genom entr??ren sl?gdes en stor glasburk full med tj?a och vi hoppas att saneringskostnaderna blir omfattande.
Det h? ? bara ett litet smakprov inf? det kommande ?et.
Alla som g? aff?er med Havg?ds P?s och alla som p?n?ot s?t tj?ar pengar p?djurens lidande kommer att bli m? f? v?a aktioner.
