January 1, 2011 - UK SLOGANS PAINTED AT UNIVERSITY (DELAYED REPORT)
"The Rebellious Spray Paint Brigade of the Animal Liberation Front targeted the University of St. Andrews in Fife, Scotland in the summer of 2010. In the middle of a cool August night, the words 'WE'RE WATCHING YOU - ALF' were casually sprayed onto the Psychology Building. By choosing to engage in animal experimentation and thus take a serious position of authority in the struggle against animal life this institution was chosen as an apt target. It is hoped that by decorating the back entrance of the building, animal experimenters and their colleagues were reminded of their crimes. Moreover, however, it is hoped that it can only lead them to reconsider their position in a system that perpetuates discrimination against animals in the most viscous ways.
We in the Rebellious Spray-Paint Brigade see a future in which miserable authoritarian relationships cease to exist and it is in this future that vivisection cannot survive. One cannot doubt the immeasurable pain that non-human animals go through every day in the vivisection industry. The shock of initial transportation, to the bright lights of the laboratory room to the final and inevitable death are all symptomatic of a terrible existence. We could choose to remove or negate these symptoms but, by doing so, we will both fail to tackle the root cause and we will not truly solve the plight of non-human animals. The initial disease of speciesm is what we must tackle; we must tackle this in our day-to-day lives but also through disrupting the activities of industries who generate profit at the expense of non-human animals.
The future of all animals must be in a non-hierarchical
society where no misery can be generated and all needs can be catered for.
We can choose to 'opt-in' to such a society as we wish through living our
lives outwit of the common structures of authority. We might choose not to
vote or we may choose to become vegan. However, we can also choose to tackle
the society we actively oppose.
Quite importantly, we choose to engage in direct action without our own systems of authority. We have no leaders or programme to implement. Our only goal is total liberation.
The vivisection industry produces nothing but misery for the animals in it; both the murderous scientists and the murdered non-human animals. Liberation cannot exist independently and must exist in a system where all animals can live freely without fear and subordination.
This action is dedicated to Walter Edmund Bond. Keep those fuckers on their toes!

December 25, 2010 - 130 TURKEYS RESCUED AND REHOMED
anonymous communique, reported on Indymedia UK:
"After the recent death of bernard matthews, our group was inspired to put into action something we had been talking about for some time. Late at night we visited one of his 'farms'. There was very little security, and it was easier than we had expected to get inside, and bring some birds back out with us. As we found new homes for these, even more homes were found, so, over a couple of weeks we went back again, and again. In total 130 turkeys were rescued and rehomed. Thats 130 turkeys that will live on, through xmas and into the new year....which is more than can be said for old bernard. Now that is bootiful.

November 12, 2010 - TRAPS AND SNARES DESTROYED
"After closely monitoring farmers and various hunting groups, over 20 cage traps and various snares located in the Cambridgeshire countryside have been found and destroyed. All of the traps were thankfully empty allowing us to put them out of use before they were able to kill any wildlife. We will continue to monitor trapping and snaring activity, and will continue to destroy them wherever they are found.
Allow this destruction to be a first and final warning to those who willingly kill off our wildlife. If you continue with your actions we will hit you back harder in future.
This action though small is dedicated to all caged prisoners both animal and human.
Liberation for all!

October 26, 2010 - NEW PRISONERS: SHAC UK 11
On October 25, 2010, six animal rights activists (Alfie Fitzpatrick, Tom Harris, Jason Mullen, Nicola Tapping, Nicole Vosper, Sarah Whitehead) were sentenced for their involvement in the Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) campaign. The activists had pleaded guilty to either "conspiring to interfere with the contractual relations of an animal research organization," or "conspiracy to blackmail" companies linked to the notorious animal testing lab, Huntingdon Life Sciences.
Seven other activists (Dan Amos, Gregg Avery, Natasha Avery, Gavin Medd-Hall, Heather Nicholson, Gerrah Selby, Dan Wadham) were jailed in January 2009 following their convictions on similar charges.
The purely political prosecutions and harsh and unjust sentences are an attempt by the British government to crush dissent and to stop anyone from speaking out against vivisection. To learn more about the case, visit: www.myspace.com/shacukprisonersupport. Please send letters of support to the UK "SHAC 11."

July 20, 2010 - FLAMES ENGULF DELIVERY VANS AT NOTORIOUS LAB ANIMAL BREEDER
"On the early hours of Monday 19th July, Highgate Farm in Lincolnshire, UK was visited and information was gathered to be used in the future against this lab animal breeder.
But before leaving we wanted to make sure that Geoffrey Douglas, the owner of the 'farm' was left under no illusion to what we think of his animal abusing ways and to remind him that we're not bothered by his noisy alarm system or his security lights (thanks it helped us see where your delivery vans were). We lit up the night sky in our own way as flames engulfed the vehicles, make sure you tell your insurance company that you are a high risk customer. You are quite isolated on Highgate Lane and we're sure to return and leave more messages until you do the right thing and pull out of animal abuse once and for all.
The rabbits and ferrets you breed and send to their torture and death in labs across the UK will not be forgotten and scream out for justice. We'll be back when you least expect it until you stop your vile business for good. This is just a little warning, if we have to come back again the next time we will not be so nice.
You only have one choice, make it soon...

reported on Indymedia UK:
"Having woken up from a massive sleep due to the mother of
all hangovers last Beltane we participated in about 1000 years ago we were
shocked to find the extent to which humans are now abusing their non human
compatriots so we decided to take action. Sadly since our magical powers no
longer work we instead spray painted ALF and meat is murder on to the walls
and windows of a few butchers in Norwich. We then went back to the woods to
wait till the next Beltane where we will be back.

March 8, 2010 - VANDALISM ESCALATES AGAINST GREEN WEDGE DEVELOPMENT
anonymous press release:
"Over the weekend the green wedgers struck again, this time against the future developers of the green wedge:
We climbed over the pathetic excuse for a gate proceeding to glue the door lock, spray paint slogans such as 'hands off vivary wedge' 'cut the contract' and 'scum' before paint stripping a car that was left there. Hopefully the vehicle belonged to an executive of the company, either way we expect them to pick up the bill for it.
Since the 'public debate' concerning the green wedge has closed all that is now left is direct action. No longer will we leave our trust in councils and politicians that have for too long failed our community. Our intention is for the company to end their involvement with the project due to the substantial costs in clearing up the mess, thus canceling the plans to build on our green land. These companies care more about their pockets than the environment so that is where we will hit them.
However for Councilor Ross Henley to say we are 'damaging the environment' with our actions is an attempt to detract attention away from the environment he is planning to destroy! Further more our economic sabotage is far from pointless; rather it is an effective non-violent tactic recognised within social movements.
In solidarity with ALF and ELF prisoners, we will be back."
