December 16, 2010 - ACTIVISTS FIGHT TO KEEP ÖREBRO FUR-FREE

reported to the DBF/ALF Press Office, Örebro:

"'Recently the city of Örebro went totally fur free. So djurens befrielsefront decided to ban fur from now on and for ever. Everyone who breaks the prohibition will be targeted with militant direct actions. We won't forget the beings who are oppressed so visciously. And we will most certanly not let any of those who might even think of breaking this ban walk away unknown. We will even target those who wear or promote fur. This is our task and this is what we all live for. The freedom for all beings isn't too far away.'

- Other groups who have joined the ban and say that they will take necessary actions to keep the city fur free are so far: Örebro City Vegans, Commando 46, Örebro VSE, & Djurens Hämnare ('The animal avengers').

October 5, 2010 - 20,000 MINK RELEASED

mink

received anonymously (translation); image from Sveriges Television:

"During the night of October 4th all 20,000 mink were released from a fur farm outside Skillingaryd. Although most Swedes are against fur farming, there are currently 1.4 million animals trapped in cages. This is contrary to Swedish animal welfare legislation, but with the tacit acceptance of a paralyzed government. Our action during the night is a reaction to an industry that does not respect the law, democracy or animal welfare. There is now a wild population of mink in Sweden, which originated from fur farms. There is evidence that animals raised in captivity successfully re-adjust to a life of freedom when they are given the chance. Some get caught, some may be run over by cars. This is nothing we desire for any of them, but for those who escape, that means everything. Our goal is to close the farm and that the cages remain empty. Forever. For mink on Animals' Day"

Swedish:
"Natten till den 4e oktober släpptes samtliga 20.000 minkar ut från en pälsfarm utanför Skillingaryd. Trots att de flesta svenskar är emot pälsdjursuppfödning, sitter just nu 1,4 miljoner djur instängda i burar. Detta sker i strid mot svensk djurskyddslagstiftning, men med tyst acceptans från en handlingsförlamad regering. Vårt agerande i natt är en reaktion mot en näring som inte respekterar lag, demokrati och djuromsorg. Det finns idag en vild population av minkar i Sverige, som alla ursprungligen kommer från pälsdjursuppfödningen. Det är bevisat att djur som fötts upp i fångenskap, kunnat återanpassa sig till ett liv i frihet då de fått chansen. En del blir infångade, några kanske överkörda av bilar. Det är inget vi önskar någon av dem, men för dem som tar sig undan, betyder det här allt. Vårt mål är att farmen stänger och att burarna förblir tomma. För alltid. För minkarna på Djurens Dag / DBF"

August 15, 2010 - SLOTTSSKOGEN ATTACKED AGAIN

reported anonymously:

"The paint from our last visit to the animal park Slottsskogen in Gothenburg had been washed away, apparently the animal-haters want their animal prisons to look good, but it didn't take long until we visited them again. We thought we would help them remind their visitors again that the animals in this park does not belong there and that they are suffering.

This time we covered the windows to the bird-prison with black paint and left ALF-messages on a big staff-door and on some of the windows.

We also painted over the seal-prison windows and left giant ALF-messages on the walls.

This paint is extremely hard to clean off and it will hopefully stay there for some time. At least the animaltorturers will have a hard time cleaning it up. We want this animal park to stop locking in animals in tiny unnatural areas."

May 19, 2010 - 214 HENS RESCUED

According to djurensbefrielsefront.com, the biggest ever liberation of hens in Sweden happened on May 16, when 214 hens were liberated from the battery farm Lommarps Lant�gg, where thousands of hens are kept in two windowless sheds. The activists write, "This action was carefully planned and carried out, despite the large number of animals, in less than an hour. The activists entered through an unlocked door, took the hens from cages and quickly brought them to their new homes."

Complete Swedish communique:
"16 maj:

Aktionen var v�lplanerad och genomf�rdes, trots det h�ga antalet djur p� mindre �n en timme. Aktivisterna gick helt enkelt in genom en ol�st d�rr, lyfte ner h�norna i transportl�dor och k�rde d�rifr�n till h�nornas nya hem. Sympatiska m�nniskor som st�llt upp som tillflyktsort f�r h�norna tog emot med �ppna armar och b�rjade direkt klippa klor och se �ver de skadade f�glarna. H�nor p� h�nserier lever som regel i ett och ett halvt �r innan de d�das och de som r�ddades i aktionen s�g ut att relativt nyligen ha satts in p� h�nseriet. De hade trots den korta vistelsen i burarna redan f�rlorat fj�drar och flera hade hackskador och svaga ben, en direkt konsekvens av deras stressade tillvaro. H�norna f�r nu leva som h�nor ska, med h�rliga sandbad, ordentliga reden och gr�nt gr�s att spr�tta runt i. De kan f�r f�rsta g�ngen str�cka p� sina vingar och de kommer aldrig mer att se en bur.

Ut och r�dda liv!

During the night of April 19, the Djurens Befrielsefront freed 32 rabbits from cages at a farm in Synnerby, outside Skara. It was the second visit to this farm. In May 2004, 133 rabbits were rescued. The rabbits were living in appalling conditions.

Complete Swedish communique:
"32 kaniner r�ddade undan burarna!

I gamla r�vburar satt kaninerna isolerade en och en och deras liv var inte ens i n�rheten av det naturliga liv som Djurskyddslagen kr�ver. Deras klor var l�nga och ett par av dem hade stora tovor i p�lsen. De levde i stimulansfattiga burar utan markkontakt, n�got som �r v�ldigt viktigt f�r en kanin.

Oavsett om djuren f�ds upp f�r att s�ljas som avelsdjur eller slaktas vid ett par m�naders �lder s� �r livet de lever ett liv i mis�r. Kaniner �r sociala flockdjur som vill leva med sin familj, gr�va g�ngar och njuta av solen, inte sitta insp�rrade p� en m�rk farm hela livet.

Efter att kaninerna, hanar och honor med ungar f�rsiktigt packats ner i specialtillverkade l�dor flyttades de till sina nya hem d�r livet som kanin nu �ntligen kan b�rja. Inga kaniner sl�pptes ut i det vilda utan alla omplacerades p� en g�rd med stora volj�rer d�r de gradvis kan anpassa sig till det nya livet. Efter ett par veckor kommer de b�rja gr�va h�lor och de bygger redan bo f�r sina sm� ungar. Kaniner har fortfarande, trots intensiv avel kvar sina naturliga instinkter som de �ntligen kan f� utlopp f�r!

Vi Vill g�ra klart f�r Stefan Rotkirk och alla andra som f�der upp kaniner, oavsett om det �r f�r p�ls, k�tt eller n�got annat meningsl�st syfte att vi kommer att komma tillbaks f�r resten av djuren.
Kaninkriget �r l�ngt ifr�n �ver!

Djurens Befrielsefront, DBF."

March 16, 2010 - ALF VISIT ASTRAZENECA EXECUTIVE AT HOME

received anonymously (translation):

"To support the campaign against Huntingdon Life Sciences we visited Leif Gallo, an executive at AstraZeneca for fifteen years, at his home in S�dert�lje on Tuesday night, March 9. We know that many other Astra employees also live in the same area, which is close to AstraZeneca's research facility.

An incendiary device was placed under one of the front wheels of the car which was parked in the driveway to the Gallo home. We hope this was a clear warning to him and the other animal torturers at AstraZeneca. AstraZeneca is one of Huntingdon Life Sciences' primary customers and we will do everything necessary to get AstraZeneca to dump Huntingdon Life Sciences and shut down the site once and for all!
/DBF"

Swedish:
"F�r att st�dja kampanjen mot Huntingdon Life Sciences bes�kte vi Leif Gallo, h�gt uppsatt inom Astra Zeneca sedan femton �r tillbaka, i hans hem i S�dert�lje natten till tisdagen den 9:e mars. Vi vet �ven att m�nga andra av Astras anst�llda bor i samma omr�de, som ligger i n�rheten av Astra Zenecas forskningsanl�ggning.

En brandbomb placerades under ett av framhjulen p� den bil som stod pakerad p� uppfarten till Gallos hem. Detta hoppas vi var en tydlig varning f�r honom och f�r de andra djurpl�garna p� Astra Zeneca. Astra Zeneca �r en av Huntingdon Life Sciences viktiagaste kunder och vi kommer att g�ra allt som kr�vs f�r att f� Astra Zeneca att dumpa Huntingdon Life Sciences och st�nga ner det st�llet en g�ng f�r alla!

February 9, 2010 - WINDOW SMASHED, LOCKS GLUED AT FUR RETAILER

Scandinavian Sportsmen

reported anonymously (photo from NorraSk�ne.se):

"Lund - Once again fur retailing store Scandinavian Sportsmen has been targeted by the ALF. During the weekend locks were glued and a window was smashed. /ALF Lund"

Swedish report:
"P�lshandlarna p� Scandinavian Sportsmen attackerades �terigen i helgen med l�slimning, och fick �nnu ett skyltf�nster krossat. Tidigare i veckan har f�retagets VD Maud Westerberg gr�tit ut i Sydsvenskan och l�gnaktigt p�st�tt att man "bara"(!) s�ljer p�lsjackor av m�rket Canada Goose. Vi kan bara h�nle �t tanken p� hur Maud s�kert kissade ner sig av r�dsla och besvikelse n�r hon s�g hur Sydsvenskans fotograf, efter att hon dragit sin r�dluvevals, b�rjar pl�ta
hennes PJS-jackor, gjorda av pl�gade tv�ttbj�rnar och kaniner - bilder som ocks� publicerades i artikeln. Sydsvenskans reporter m� vara f�r d�lig journalist f�r att kunna uppt�cka en s� pinsam blunder, men s�kert var det en och annan l�sare som reagerade. Varf�r dessa l�gner Maud? Vem f�rs�ker du lura? Oss? Dina kunder? Kanske mest troligt: dig sj�lv. F�r vem vill g� till s�ngs varje natt medveten om att man har n�got s� grymt p� sitt samvete? Att Maud uppenbarligen sk�ms f�r sitt handlande �r i alla fall ett steg i r�tt riktning. Citat fr�n ett butiksbitr�de p� SS: "-Aktivisterna vinner inga sympatier genom att f�rst�ra p� detta s�tt och vi f�r�ndrar inte v�r policy." Vad �r det f�r policy butiksbitr�det h�nvisar till? Har de en policy som s�ger att en viss andel av f�retagets vinst m�ste komma fr�n f�rs�ljning av torterade djur? Det l�ter fasansfullt. /DBF"

January 13, 2010 - BROKEN WINDOWS AT FUR RETAILER

anonymous report:

"Fur selling store spray painted and windows smashed

Lund, Sweden - Scandinavian Sportsmen is a local clothing store selling a lot of fur. Lately the store has been spray painted on a number of occasions and on New Years Eve activists smashed five large windows on the building, and added some more paint. Hopefully the director, Maud Westerberg, will eventually be convinced that trying to make profit from other individuals suffering is really not a good idea!

An action like this is very easy to perform and don't forget that the best way of supporting the ALF in the struggle against the oppression of other species is being the ALF.

/ALF"

Swedish:
"Butik som s�ljer p�ls sprejad och f�r f�nstren krossade

Lund - Scandinavian Sportsmen �r ett kl�df�retag med ett stort utbud av p�ls. P� sistone har butiken attackerats med sprejf�rg upprepade g�nger, och p� ny�rsafton krossade aktivister fem stora rutor och piffade till med lite mer sprejf�rg. F�rhoppningsvis kommer �garen, Maud Westerberg, snart inse att det �r en mycket d�lig id� att f�rs�ka g�ra profit p� andra individers lidande!

En aktion som denna �r mycket enkel att genomf�ra och gl�m inte att b�sta s�ttet att st�dja DBF i kampen mot f�rtrycket av individer av andra arter �r att vara DBF.
