December 23, 2009 - WELSH ASSEMBLY MEMBERS TARGETED IN PROTEST OF BADGER CULL

received anonymously:

"The Welsh Assembly's decision to go ahead with a badger cull in Wales despite evidence suggesting it will have no effect on TB in the cattle population will prove a very costly mistake. The secrecy of the voting and dismissal of their own evidence mirrors the governance of Westminster and they will be made to pay. Already in December two assembly members Jenny Randerson, liberal democrat of Cardiff and a leading Plaid Cymru AM from Dinas Powys have had paint stripper thrown over their cars. Some months ago Jenny Randerson also had her tyres slashed amongst other actions. Future actions were then postponed as it seemed the Welsh assembly would do the sensible thing and halt the cull during a time when the Welsh public can barely afford this costly waste of money. Similar actions like these will continue but attention will be mainly focused around the upcoming general action. Disruption of campaigns accross Wales we know can put pressure on the respective Welsh Assembly members. Action will be co-ordinated in a similar way to tactical voting for full effect.. Any weaknesses will be ruthlessly exploited until the cull is shelved for good."

December 4, 2009 - SABOTAGE AT HOME OF HUNTER AND COAL MINE PROPONENT

reported on Earth First! Action Reports:

"In the early hours of Sunday 29th November a group of autonomous activists caused embarrassment to Lord Home, exposing his role in the proposed development of Mainshill Woods into an open cast coal mine. This action was taken by a group of autonomous people in solidarity with all those who oppose the development of Mainshill Wood into an open cast coal mine.

Lord Home was entertaining friends at his country mansion, almost certainly before a day of grouse shooting. In the dead of night, the activists deflated tyres on all of the posh cars outside the house, put superglue on the windscreens and left a sign on Home's lawn saying 'No Open Cast'. The car presumed to belong to Home's housekeeper was left untouched.

Actions such as these are not mindless acts of vandalism but designed to embarass Lord Home into having to explain his blind pursuit of profit and neglect of community interest to his cronies. As well as drawing attention to the fight to stop the open casting of Mainshill, the action may conveniently also have put some of Home's mateys off going grouse shooting again."


November 5, 2009 - CHICKENS, TURKEYS RESCUED BY POULTRY LIBERATION FRONT

anonymous report:

"October 2009

During the past month, the Poultry Liberation Front have been busy in the South of England, with liberations of turkeys and chickens.

On separate occassions, 33 turkeys, 100 chickhens and another 30 turkeys have been rehomed from dark, stinking sheds of the intensive poultry industry. We will continue to visit farms whenever we want and rehome those imprisoned there, until all are free from the suffering and genocide that continues in a speciesist human world, devoid of compassion and guilt.

These beautiful individuals have now been rehomed into life-long compassionate homes. To live out their lives with dignity, away from their cruel exploiters.

July 9, 2009 -- Birds Freed from Pigeon-Proofing Netting

Media has reported that the Animal Liberation Front claimed responsibility for damaging netting under a bridge in the village of Fetcham (Surrey, England). In a phone call to a local newspaper, the ALF explained that the action was necessary to free pigeons who were trapped under the netting.

Animal rights group "frees" pigeons
Thursday, July 09, 2009, 10:35
AN ANIMAL rights organisation has claimed it has freed pigeons that were trapped by netting under a railway bridge.
Last month the Advertiser reported that pigeons had been trapped by netting under the bridge in Guildford Road, Fetcham, and that some of them had subsequently died.
As a result the paper received letters sympathising with their plight and condemning the actions of the council which is responsible for maintaining the pigeon-proofing.
But the controversy reached a new level on Monday when the Advertiser received an anonymous call from a man claiming to be from the Animal Liberation Front an organisation that often uses illegal methods to free animals it believes are being treated cruelly.
He said: "The netting has been cut down and the Animal Liberation Front is claiming responsibility.
"We will be watching who puts it [the netting] back up because two organisations were denying responsibility.
"When we find out which one, they will be dealt with accordingly."
He also claimed that the group had freed the pigeons that were trapped under the netting.
Josie Hinchey, of Fetcham, had originally informed the Advertiser of the plight of the pigeons but says she does not approve of these methods.
She said: "I don't want people like that getting involved because that is not the way we want it done.
"We want it done in the right way and that it isn't vandalism because it won't do anyone any good."
Mole Valley District Council confirmed that the netting had been damaged. A spokeswoman said: "A site visit carried out on July 6 revealed that there was a small section of netting which was previously connected to the upper part of the railway bridge parapet wall which is now disconnected.
"Notwithstanding this small amount of damage then the rest of the proofing has not been touched."
The council spokeswoman also denied the fact that the birds were trapped, adding: "The contractors recently attended the site at 4am to observe the pigeons.
"It was found that there are birds sitting on eggs and also young birds present, which eliminates the possibility that the birds are trapped."
Surrey Police is also investigating the threat and the vandalism. If you have any information on the incident you should call 0845 125 2222.

 


July 4, 2009 -- Dairy Trucks, Police Car Tagged at Glastonbury

reported on Indymedia UK:

"At the corporately social Glastonbury Festival in Somerset, small-scale vandalism took place and various areas were subverted in support of anarchism, also known as total liberation:

A police car was tagged with the anarchist symbol, a Worthy Farm dairy truck had raped from cows written below the milk sign and six ice cream vans also selling breast milk from rape victims received the word scum on their vehicles.

Many toilets both inside and outside, walls, bins and signs were tagged with anarchist and ALF symbols, as well as slogans promoting; animal liberation, earth liberation, no borders, anti-capitalism, anti-fascism (anti-speciesism, anti-racism and anti-sexism), anti-cops, class war, insurrection and general social war.

Posters against Heathrow expansion were additionally improved with anarchy symbols and insults surrounding pictures of Gordon Brown in the Green Futures Fields."

Whilst some may call this a smear campaign, it is a fact that animal abuse often leads to child abuse, after all we have all seen the video of the senior Novartis scientist in the USA being caught out on 'To Catch A Predator'.

May 13, 2009 -- Lambs Liberated, Bird Freed

reported anonymously:

"UK, April 2009.

A dark night in April saw several people descend onto a south-western animal breeding farm. At the back of this farm, piles of dead lambs bodies were rotting, and mothers lay in narrow pens, raped and impregnated. One female sheep was tied around her face onto the bars in front of her, forcing her to stand and not being able to move more than a few inches.

Several lambs had been taken from their mothers and kept in a metal pen ready for the fate man decided for them. We decided to change their fate that night. Instead of feeling the cold hands of the farmer, they felt us lift them to liberation. After taking these beautiful lambs to safety, we disappeared back into the night. We also released a wild bird from the farm that had been caught in a trap.

Some of the lambs were playing and cuddling with us on our journey, sitting in our laps while we stroked and held them. For the first time since their mothers were taken away, they could feel love and compassion. We had given back to them what greedy humans had so desperately tried to take: their lives.

Love and liberation,

April 8, 2009 -- G20 Report from Veganarchists

communiqu' from some veganarchists on the G20 riots and resistance:

"As veganarchists, we show solidarity with fellow anarchists (green, red, purple, pink or otherwise), and all the radicals and militants who shunned pacifism for a productive day of direct action against the G20 in London.

The day of mass actions began with mass kettles. For the marches opposing climate chaos, borders and the economy; activists were beaten if attempting to leave and told of no reason for being held. These are standard police state tactics, using violence to protect corporate assets, whilst attempting to contain those expressing desire to revolt.

It could well of ended as it started; the people's anger pacified and made ineffective against the human, white, male supremacists. You know, those bastard elites who rule our planet and oppress the population that inhabit it. Fortunately, this was not to be. The animal instinct known as self-defense was applied allowing for social war in London to become yet again recognized as an ongoing battle against the state and its capital. Thank fuck we didn't take their shit any longer.

RBS was the first bank to fall into the hands of angry anarchists on the green march. Windows were smashed, walls were painted 'class war', 'thieves', 'burn a banker', '@', amongst many other slogans. Furniture, computers, phones and other equipment were trashed and used as ammunition, smashing more windows, as cops plotted not knowing what to do. They must of thought we were joking when we said 'Storm the Banks' ' as others climbed in painting walls and burning blinds. A petrol bomb was finally thrown in, but unfortunately failed to ignite.

Cops are common scum who live by authority, on the contrary we act independently as covert cells. This is why we will always win in these situations, and they will always loose.

Blocs continued to push, dismantle and dismember police pens, as we refused to act like domesticated creatures that become slaves to their masters. Many times cops were surrounded and paid the price for the violence they initiated. Injuries were sustained on both sides as we eventually got to the core of the city. It was then attacked by the masses.

Down at the exchange, HSBC was smashed and slogans were painted all around the area as we began to take back the streets. For hours the police lines were penetrated, breaking out to further areas of the city, as an anarchist flag waved high from a flagpole.

What went wrong then? We didn't all continue to resist. As the evening approached, agitation, fear and anxiety became the illness that infected many of our number. Some dispersed as others continued to resist.

As many pens closed in despair settled on the streets. Countless white, middle class pacifists and their supporters released frustration and energy to the ground in front of the fascist police, creating a brief and temporary standoff. This was clearly regretted by many, as police batons continued to wave against protesters in other corners of the pen who refused to submit to violence.

So we continued to riot against the police, with another wave of dissent. Barriers were dismantled and thrown at cops, injuring some more fascist scum, with surges against the lines creating small gaps. A banker effigy was then burned from a traffic light, using a leg to set a cop on fire (apologies for no picture). As we nearly got out after increasing the offensive, the police did the same, which was taken by many by surprise. 'Flighting' became the norm as fighting disappeared from the fear and panic in the air, at the same time police eventually began releasing people one by one.

Unlike our fellow comrades kettled at the Bank of England, the majority of our number were merely 'spot checked' through a FIT parade as we were released back onto the streets, instead of stop, searched and harassed for our personal details by the Forward Intelligence Team.

This is an example of why we resist ' because we are not just a number. We may not of entirely 'broken the spell' like in Seattle, but we got very close. If it weren't for our mistakes - backing down - that bleak time when we failed to make plans, we would of taken back part of the city for much longer. In time, we will destroy every aspect of this brutal civilisation.

Despite what our oppressors spew out through the media, the majority of arrests were made on the 2nd, not the 1st, which took place at the G20 Convergence Center and RampArt. More activists would have found themselves in cages that night if it weren't for the continued resistance when kettled under pressure from thugs with battons.

In memory of Ian Tomlinson who had a heart attack and died because police initially refused to help and release him from a kettle.

Full solidarity with all those arrested!
We are the fury that will continue this social war!

February 13, 2009 -- Abused Hens Rescued from "Free Range" Farm

anonymous report:

"On a recent evening, a visit was paid to the Yorkshire Farmhouse free range and organic egg business. As people know this sector operates in a similar way to it's sister factory farming industry. Male chicks are slaughtered at birth. 'Flock depletion' takes place after the hens have lived only around 10% of their so called natural lifetimes due to diminishing returns from each laying hen. They are then sent to the same slaughterhouses as factory farmed birds and their lives taken.

Of course these places aren't quite so bad as the massive sheds where hens are locked up 24 hours a day. But the pictures that entice the moralistic egg eating crusaders on the front of the packs, are indeed just one side of this gruesome industry, happily supported by vegetarians. Who by supporting these companies, are essentially eating the flesh straight off the bones of these hens.

When we arrived at the targetted barn, we immediately rescued a hen that had been shut out for the night and left to fend for itself among the foxes. After forcing entry we proceeded through the entranceway and into the main body of the building. Here we could see hens as far as our torches could travel tightly packed into the space, and sitting on iron bars just a metre above the shit pit. We could identify that many of the birds had few neck feathers, and also few wing feathers, as well as having been debeaked.

We proceeded to take a hen for each of the animal rights prisoners incarcerated in jail, and then we took some more. After retrieving them, we looked to the thousands of eggs stacked in the entranceway, and began smashing them. The hens that we took have been found new homes.

It's time to stop believing in the ethical myths of the organic and free range animal industries.

Protect, Liberate, Avenge.

February 4, 2009 -- Home Visits for Top Barclays Executives

anonymous communique:

"Barclays have had enough warnings about their blood money trading, now the time has come to pay.

We tracked down the top executives of Barclays Plc, who think hiding in expensive London houses will keep them safe... THINK AGAIN! First stop was Prof Andrew Likierman (wife: Meira Likierman), of [address deleted], London. His two cars were paintstripped and the front entrance of his house was covered with spraypaint. That was a very white house you had Andrew, we hope you like the new decorations. You are a filthy murderer Andrew for having shares in Huntingdon Life Sciences and the NYSE. DROP HLS OR WE WILL BE BACK DAY OR NIGHT...

Second stop was Marcus Agius chairman of Barclays Plc, [address deleted], London. We left a special message on your back garage door for you and your wife Katherine. For a top businessman you don't seem to be that good at making intelligent decisions Marcus. So we've made it a bit easier for you.. If Barclays Global Investors don't sell their shares in Huntingdon Life Sciences (Life Sciences Research Inc.) people close to you are going to SUFFER
Marcus... does it make investing in a profitless and failing company worth it? You know what to do to make this stop.

To give you a little preview of what may happen to people close to you we paid a visit to your daughter Marie-Louise Agius living at [address deleted], London.

SHE IS NOT SAFE

This is just the start of what is to come Barclays, sell your shares or expect more. And don't even think about giving HLS a loan or WE WILL GIVE YOU HELL...................

January 30 ,2009 -- More Barclays Cashpoints Disabled

anonymous report:

"More Barclays cashpoints have been glued, as well as a Ladbrokes branch, and a butchers' van had its tyres let down in one night. Again.

You can expect more of the same while you continue to invest in torture, Barclays. Also, rumour has it that HLS intend to return to the UK with a domestic bank account... Don't even think about it Barclays."

January 28, 2008 -- Councillor's Cars Attacked In Protest of Grouse Shoots

received anonymously (photo from the Ilkley Gazette):

"Persons unknown recently visited the property of self serving Councillor Anne Hawkesworth. The two cars in the driveway were paint stripped and had their tyres slashed.

The entire council is responsible for choosing to turn Ilkley Moor into a blood bath. Doubtless many will be queueing to spectate when the shotguns come to blast these birds out of the sky. In the meantime the moor will be managed in such a way as to promote the growth of grouse, while terminating the existence of many of their predators, who have an equal right to exist in this habitat.

We have already called for Ilkley Moor to be a wildlife haven, and have been ignored. This is the use of public land to allow the 'fun and games' of a few sadists led by Ed Bromet (Bingley Moor Partnership) and is, as we have said, completely unacceptable.

January 23, 2009 -- Barclay's Cash Machines Put Out of Action

reported anonymously:

"5 Barclays cash machines put out of action in the East (UK).

We would like to take this opportunity to reflect on our leniency towards Barclays thus far. We have taken the view that gentle pressure is needed to make them sell their LSR and NYX stock, as has been the case across the board.

HOWEVER - ANYONE CONSIDERING PROVIDING UK BANKING FACILITIES AND '30M LOAN TO HLS WILL LIT THE FUEL OF ANGER THAT HAS BEEN BREWEING FOR SOME TIME AS A RESPONSE TO THE HORRORS OF HLS, AND THE ONGOING TERRORISM OF PEACEFUL ACTIVISTS BY THE BRITISH STATE. WE WILL BE CLEAR - IF YOU OFFER THESE SERVICES TO HLS YOU WILL BURN. THIS IS NOT A THREAT, IT IS A PROMISE - FEEL FREE TO TEST US, IT IS WHAT WE HAVE WAITED FOR.

January 4, 2009 -- Elves Sabotage RBS Banks

received anonymously:

"Self-promoted as 'The Oil & Gas Bank' RBS fanatically finance dangerous oil and gas projects, accelerating climate change, forcing species into poverty, migration and wars as murderers continue to burn and exploit the planets natural 'resources'.

In 2006 alone the greedy bankers pumped $10 billion into fossil fuels funding corporations demanding drilling rigs, pipelines, oil tankers and other tools destroying the Earth and its population.

It should come as no surprise that Elves sabotaged a RBS bank in the south west, gluing the doors closed in resistance to anthropocentric policies. This action was inspired by the ecoteur who shut down Kingsnorth power station, reducing UK climate change emissions by 2% and the eco-anarchist cell for direct attack.

For the collapse of civilization, the sabotage will continue.
- Earth Liberation Front"
