December 28, 2008 -- Holiday Packages Sent to Naughty Vivisectors
"To celebrate the holidays, we sent a special package to the home of
Johns Hopkins University non-human primate vivisector Elise Weerts at
616 S. Ann ST in Baltimore. Weerts addicts primates to GHB and other
drugs of abuse in her sadistic and fraudulent research. Sadistic because
she watches the animals suffer in complete agony and is committed to
inflicting more pain and misery to make a name for herself; and for her
paycheck. Fradulent because nothing can be learned of human addiction
from creating addiction in non-human primates or other animals; who do
not engage in addictive behavior in their natural environments.
We also sent one of our special letter-bombs to the home of JHU
primate vivisector Steven Hsiao. This could arrive either at his office
on campus or at his home located at 2415 Ken Oak Rd in Baltimore.
Hsiao's brain-mapping experiments on non-human primates are pure torture
for these innocent beings.
Johns Hopkins University was chosen because they imprison dozens of
non-human primates and torture them to death year after year. In
addition, they are one of the top violators of the Animal Welfare Act.
Peaceful protest and attempts at mediation have failed.
These two vivisectors were chosen at random. All responsible for the
torture and oppression of innocent beings will soon receive the same
Every action has an impact. Every life saved is a victory.

December 13, 2008 -- Tires Flattened on UCLA Van
reported anonymously: "On behalf of all the animals being imprisoned
in and around the campus of ucla, we took some action this Wednesday
night. Sitting all alone and parked in a structure, was a ucla van. so
we decided to inflict some pain ourselves. A little blood (paint) and
some knife wounds ( flat tires ) should do the deed.
ENOUGH is enough UCLA - stop the torture, stop the PAIN. We will not
rest until your vivisectors do.
December 9, 2008 -- Computer Virus Sent to Vivisectors
"UC Berkeley vivisector Ralph Freeman and all of the current lab
members in Freeman's Visual Neuroscience Lab (http://neurovision.berkeley.edu)
were sent a trojan horse virus embedded into email. This virus is
designed to completely wreck their computers while leeching all vital
personal information they've ever entered into their systems.
It is time to buy new computers, and after that, save yourself the
hassle that will follow and get the fuck out of this cat killing lab.
The lab where kittens as young as six weeks live in daily fear and
trauma from the violence that you are responsible for. The cats in
stereotaxic devices with holes drilled into their skulls are what drives
us and we will do anything to end your torture.
We've read the past communiques where other anonymous activists have
visited Freeman's home and broken windows, with this action we want to
send the message loud and clear that those who torture non-humans to
death are not safe at home nor at work. We will go on the offensive
against every form of oppression that surrounds; whether it be racism,
sexism, homophobia, or speciesism.
In addition to Freeman (firstname.lastname@example.org), we sent
the virus to Brian Pasley (email@example.com), Thang Duong (firstname.lastname@example.org),
Elena Allen (email@example.com), Nina Yang (firstname.lastname@example.org),
Lars Eric Holm (email@example.com), BaoWang Li (firstname.lastname@example.org),
and Ahalya Viswanathan (email@example.com)
This action is dedicated to all those fighting for primate freedom at
UCLA and all those who have taken action as of late against the animal
murder industries in Central and South America. It is for the billions
of animals currently enslaved.

December 8, 2008 -- Tires Slashed on Meat Company Vans, Butcher Shop
"Last week, a butcher shop in Georgia had a U-Lock placed around its
security gate in the middle of the night. They were closed for two hours
behind schedule the next day. This cost them hundreds in lost sales and
That same night, three tires on a wholesale meat company's van were
slashed with a pairing knife, easily attained from the kitchen section
at Safeway. This business also had their locks glued.
The next night, we cut off the gas to three fast food restaurants in
the middle of a busy night.
Sabotage can be easy, risk-free, and cathartic. We have no excuses.
We are the ALF.
November 30, 2008 -- Actions Continue Targeting UCLA
"this note is to share a few things with those of you who haven't
ceased the torture of primates at UCLA, all other UC schools, and all
vivisectors worldwide. (remember, we are coming for you.)
the first few hours of the silly U.S. holiday of over consumption known
as thanksgiving were celebrated by some activists by redecorating a UCLA
clinic located on the corner of 18th and Wilshire Blvd. in Santa Monica.
Glue for the locks and lots of blood red paint were some of the
additions that we chose to make to the general appearance of this
outpost of the murderous UCLA medical department. this was another small
gesture of our willingness to keep up the fight until the monkeys are
removed from the UCLA labs.
we aren't going away.
we are aware that due to some people's recent interactions with the UCLA
vanpools, security has been vamped up, some of the vans aren't left out
overnight anymore, and a bulletin was sent out to drivers and passengers
to be alert of anything out of the ordinary. we are also aware of the
fact that some of the vanpools have UCLA medical staff and ocassionaly
even a vivisector as passengers. one such van has been driving around
with a small "V" scratched into the paint. did your keen drivers and
passengers pick up on it? the "V" stands for the victory that we will
bring for the primates in the labs and also denotes something else of
interest about the van. you figure it out...
we wanted to share some ideas with the regents of UCLA.
there are way more of us than you think. and that number is getting
greater with every article that shines light on your disgusting halls of
torture. more press. more actions. more damage. more pressure. it won't
stop. as our numbers grow our proximity to you becomes closer and
closer. disgruntled employees. disillusioned students. we are on your
campus. you even pay some of us as we get closer to shuting you down. if
there are primates in your labs we will be here doing what we do and
getting better at it. we aren't going to back down.
with this said we have an idea for you. we know that the non-animal
protocols exist. we know that UCLA has even had vivisectors switch over
to the non-animal protocols in ongoing studies. when you do free the
primates you don't want it to look like you had to make the choice
because of the financial or emotional pressure that some of the direct
actions bring you. right? here is what you do: you start calling us
terrorists (shouldn't be too much of a challenge for you...), and you
start saying that our actions are slowing down your plan to transfer
over to total and complete, uncruel, primate and other animal free,
safe, medical testing. UCLA makes the switch to animal free testing and
we retire. UCLA restores it's reputation and saves money along with
producing actual safe and reliable research. (contrary to what you offer
now.) best of all the primates and other animals don't suffer. (also we
don't mind that you called us terrorists. we know that you are the ones
who terrorize and abuse. we know that we are the ones acting in the name
of compassion and justice. go ahead and call us whatever you want. just
let the animals out of the cages.)
it's up to you UC regents.
the UC name can continue to be doused in red paint or even go up in
or it can shine proudly having ushered in a new day of humane treatment
towards our fellow sentient beings.
your choice. we will be watching.
November 25, 2008 -- Incendiary Device Placed Under Vivisectors Car
"The holidays are coming up and Santa was checking his list twice to
see whose been naughty or nice. The name Goran Lacan caught Santa's eye
as having done abominable things to small monkeys inside the labs at
UCLA. Santa had his elf or in this case, alf, check Lacan's department
Santa discovered that Goran Lacan studied human eating disorders like
anorexia and obsesity in vervet monkeys by implanting electrodes into
their skulls and backs and invoking painful stimuli. After a long period
of time, he killed them. So early November 20th when Santa was out
delivering pieces of coal to those who were naughty, one of his stops
was Goran Lacan's house at 3448 Greenfield Avenue in Los Angeles.
When Santa went into his knapsack to pull out his last piece of coal
he discovered that there wasn't any left, just a lone incendiary device.
Santa thought this was the perfect gift to give a monster like Lacan and
placed it under his car.
As the sun was coming up he headed back to the North Pole to check
his list for other names of naughty vivisectors. Santa wished Lacan was
in the car at the time the fuel ingnited, but hopefully he will be next
Santa sends this message to all vivisectors this holiday season:
those who experimented on primates in the past, currently or thinking
about it in the future, it may not be tomorrow or next month that his
alfs will find you so that he can bring you other gifts you deserve.
Santa never forgets to give out presents to primate vivisectors.

November 15, 2008 -- Trick or Treat at Home of Primate Vivisector
"Just after sunrise on Halloween, a sole trick or treater descended
on the home of University of California-San Francisco primate vivisector
Stephen Lisberger. As Stephen and his wife Chieko slept inside at 848
Clayton ST. in San Francisco, tubes of superglue were used to fill his
front door locks.
UCSF vivisectors and officials shall consider this a gentle halloween
prank, but this is just the beginning. We will increase our level of
tactics as long as non-human primates and other animals are tortured to
death at the hands of those driven by profit and as long as the
University of California shows a complete disregard for the suffering of
the non-human prisoners.
UCSF -- you've already had to pay out over $90,000 for violations of
the Animal Welfare Act for Lisberger's experiments on primates that
include fluid deprivation, gluing metal coils to their eyelids,
restraint chairs and invasive surgeries. How's thousands, even millions
more, in damage to the researchers property and your school sound?

"On November 5 around 7am, UC Berkeley bird murderer Frederic
Theunissen was paid a visit at his home. Red paint was thrown all over
the door, walls, and windows. His front door locks were superglued.
We are aware that Theunissen has been targeted with underground

For starters, a couple of your team players left the Knapp footbal
centre with a new rattling sort of sound in their mufflers as they drove
away from a recent practice. Some more mufflers might just be exploding
in the near future. Deny it if you like UCLA. We know they are in there.
We will also be attending the game at the Rose Bowl on the 8th to have a
look around. Go Bruins! You might spot us. We will be the chaps who look
like college students attnending a football game.
We know that the non animal protocols exist. UCLA needs to apply them
and lay off of the torturing.
That's when we retire.
October 21, 2008 -- Another Oregon Fur Farm Raided
"In the early morning hours of October 17th, a lone activist
infiltrated the fur farm at 92659 Simonsen Road in Astoria Oregon.
About 1,500 mink were released from their cages with at least 200
of these being breeding stock. The fact that there is no fence
around this farm should help ease their escape.
This action is being claimed for the vegan straight edge
community. not as a self-congratulatory ego boost, but in the vain
hope that it might spur others into action. It has become apparent
that the combined tactics of record collecting, sing-alongs, and
militant posturing have failed to stop those who abuse innocent
life. once we accept this then we can stop squandering our
potential and choose a more effective plan of action.
I would like to close by offering a piece of advice to the
owners of this farm, to the owners of the other farms in the
Astoria, OR area (it was simply by luck of the draw that your farms
weren't chosen), and to ALL fur farmers:
find a new profession. fur farmers are a dying breed. get out
before you are forced out.
'your laws will have no meaning past the setting of the sun.'
October 29, 2008 -- UCLA Commuter Vans Continue to Be Targets
"There a roughly 12 (give or take a few, they'll have to find the
exact number) of those UCLA vans driving around with unfired shotgun
shells in their mufflers. Some of them may have ignited with the warm
weather that we have been having. Most of them will eventually blow the
mufflers straight off of those vans, it all depends on when the
conditions are just right.
The security cameras, the easily timed late night patrols, and the new
laws don't mean a thing to us. We WILL keep coming up with new ways to
keep the primate tortures wondering.
UCLA vivisectors and collegues: You should stay on your toes we can
and will come from so many directions.
As we have said before: Leave the primates alone and we leave you alone.
October 16, 2008 -- Burger King Locks Glued
"A Burger King in California had all of their locks superglued three
times in just one week.
Gluing locks is essentially risk-free. It is quiet and takes only a
few seconds. It costs the animal abusers hundreds of dollars in repairs
and lost sales. Anyone can do this. Activists, get out there and

October 8, 2008 -- Shotgun Shells Slipped Into Tailpipes of UCLA Vans
"UCLA shame on you.
With primates being the closest genetic relative that human beings have,
that is they share over 90% of our genetic makeup, it is very reasonable
to assume that in addition to DNA and similar molecules they also share
our sensitivities to fear, boredom, lonelieness, and above all, pain. As
scientist you all know this. It's the main reason that you chose to test
on them right?
UCLA, regents, deans, and vivisectors, your choice to continuously
destroy the precious lives of these beautiful beings is why we won't
leave you be.
As today began (oct 6 2008) we caught up with a couple of your
currently popular vanpools. In two different locales, using small wooden
rods we slipped unfired shotgun shells into the mufflers by way of the
tailpipes of two of your vans. We also phoned into your media relations
desk to let them know about it.
On a long enough drive or a hot enough day the mufflers will be blown
Leave the primates out of your inept and outdated science and we will
leave you out of our quest for justice."

A kid in our dorm knows all about you fucker, injecting meth into
vervet monkeys. Our spontaneity prevented us from obtaining the
neccessary implements to blow up your car, but we figured that your
roommates Sammuel and Randi deserved some retribution for living with a

fence and cutting about a hundred holes in the fence's perimeter.
We are inspired by recent activities in Utah involving mink
liberations, so this is a call-out to all activists. We need to spark a
new level against the fur industry. We can't let this get out of hand.

"Inspired by the recent liberations in Utah and British Columbia; we

farm, crammed sometimes 6 and 7 at a time into filthy feces encrusted
cages, at least some will have a chance at a free natural life. Also in
the sheds of torture were the cages of furious foxes, yearning to be
free, rattling their own cages with vengeance. This is our path through
this chaotic and frustrating world. Our wisdom will appear to you long

"on the nights of july 23 and 27, we stole two more UCLA vans from
Riverside and Chino Hills and have expropriated the funds for the vans
to help animals. So far we've cost UCLA over 150 thousand dollars in
vans which is just a start to penalize them for the use of our tax money
for gruesome primate experiments.
those of us who attend UCLA or work here pay into their billion
dollar bank account using our tuition fees, book fees, even eating
rotten campus food. we realize that part of that money goes into making
monkeys suffer by putting cylinders inside their brain tissue and
getting monkeys strung out on meth and other drugs. we are indirectly
participating in this crime against nature and morality. we are all Gods
creations and so are the monkeys who we have witnessed and heard
screaming out from the hell they endure day after day after day after
We're not stupid and we know what goes on at our own university and
we're sick of it and if we cant leave our studies or our jobs right now
the least we can do is cost UCLA money and force them to stop these
awful experiments on monkeys being done on our campus and the VA across
our suggestions to those who are on campus or anyone else who care
about monkeys being tormented and killed by the callous fucks like
edythe london, jouquin fuster, william melega, nelson freimer, lynn

to confront them covertly or overtly where ever and whenever you can.

animal labs without taking action. Every time we pass someone like
Arthur in the hallways and have to witness his stomach churning grin or
watch Joaquin double checking the door locks on his little red Mercedes
we have to choke back a crippling amount of disgust and hatred. It is
becoming almost impossible to hold back. Then we hear the monkeys
wailing and screaming and we find the strength to stay put. We are
driven to show the world the compassionless support that UCLA gives to
these monkey killers and to do anything we can to end the needless
suffering that the primates are forced to face. The end of UCLA
vivisection is coming. We urge you to start switching over to non-animal
protocol without haste.

"Wednesday night after business hours in Ventura County, California,
2 Staples office supply stores were told to 'drop HLS.' At least 10
windows were etched in the front of one of the stores, locks were glued
up, 'Drop HLS' was spray painted on the front wall, and red paint was
splashed all over the entrance and sidewalk of both of the stores. This
was done to remind them of the blood of innocent animals on their hands
from associating with Huntingdon Life Sciences. Until they cut their
ties with HLS, they can expect to have many more of their stores
redecorated. All we ask is that Staples cut their ties with HLS, and
they will be able to continue business as usual.

government's case was based on the word of an FBI informant who was paid
over $75,000 to fabricate a crime. Both of Eric's co-defendants
testified against Eric in return for a lesser charge. On May 8, 2008,
Eric was sentenced to an outrageous 19 years and 7 months in prison for
a crime that was never committed. Eric will be appealing his conviction.

April 25, 2008 -- HLS Supplier Feeling the Heat
An incendiary device was left under a Staples delivery truck in
Garden Grove, CA.
We did this due to Staples continued support of Huntingdon Life Sciences
(the notorious animal murder and torture laboratories). Unmarked Staples
trucks have been spotted making deliveries to the HLS lab in the UK.
Trying to sneak in with unmarked vans... shame on you Staples
executives. Now you have to think about this, do you, as a company with
stores and warehouses filled with paper, want to take a stand against
those of us who are notorious for bringing fire???
DO THIS: Cut your ties with HLS.
A note to activists out there: If Staples doesn't cut those HLS ties
lets get busy eh? Those stores are everywhere. KEEP THE PRESSURE ON HLS!
We can and will shut them down.
April 22, 2008 -- Masked Avengers Free 40 Mink
We, the masked avengers of the Animal Liberation Front released
around 40 Blue Iris mink from the breeding stock at Jefferson Fur Farm,
[address deleted]. Breeding records containing genetic
history were also permanently destroyed. It will be a hard road ahead
for these mink and their offspring, but with our help they now have a
chance at survival. These animals are not capitalist commodities to be
bought and sold for fashion or vanity, but unique individuals deserving
of liberation from human exploitation. Even if some of the mink do not
make it we feel it is better to die free, then at the hands of their speciesist captors.
To the Posches, owners of Jefferson Fur Farm: Consider this your
first warning. Tear down this death camp and let the mink live free. If
you don't we will be back to finish the job.
To others concerned with the well-being of fellow living beings.
First and foremost, go vegan. If you've been vegan for a while, it's
time to start looking up animal abusers in your area and doing the
research for how to effectively cripple them. Work in small affinity
groups, be cautious always-- macho never, and never give information if
captured. It's time for animal rights to move beyond consumer
sub-culture, towards an active liberation movement, which threatens the
capitalist commoditization of life and the speciesist ideology itself.
We want to make it very clear that we will not be intimidated by the
states continued witch hunt against the earth and animal liberation
movements. Draconian prison sentences and repressive legislation will
not deter us from our goal of total earth, animal, and human liberation.
For every liberator you throw in prison, there will two more to take her
place. For every activist's house you raid, there will ten times that
many cages emptied. You can take our freedom, but you will never
extinguish the flame that burns in our heart. Let your passion mirror
the animals oppression and our persecution.

February 22, 2008 -- ALF Claims Responsibility for Fire At Home
"Edyth London, you and your work are deplorable. You are given
paychecks in exchange for addicting primates, the closest kin that the
human species knows, to numerous sickeningly addicting drugs like
crystal meth. For forcing these innocent and sensitive beings to suffer
through a type of hell that they would never encounter if it wasn't for
your deranged science you deserve to know true justice.
This is why on February 3rd 2008 we left an incendiary device at your
house at [address deleted] in Beverly Hills. Edyth, the fire that night
was exactly the size we wanted it to be. It was just a little outreach
because we want to see you make the sound ethical choice to stop
vivisecting primates. We know what we are doing and fires can be much
Edyth, your secrets are very ugly and the spotlights on them are getting
brighter. The LA Times says that you plan to expand mad science to
include teenage human beings. They also pointed to the fact that you
torture monkeys and Phillip Morris picks up the tab. The LA Times didn't
ask but we will, 'Do you get rich while animals (and soon humans) suffer
all in the name of making tobacco products more addicting?'
You make us sick and you inspire us into action Edyth. As each day
begins and nothing that you own is burning consider yourself lucky.
Now is the time to stop vivisecting.
We don't back down.

February 13, 2008 -- Three Goats Rescued From Agricultural
"In the early hours of Saturday, Feb. 9th 2008, three young goats
were liberated by the ALF from the Carpinteria High School FFA in
California. After cutting through one lock and one fence, we took them
from their small pens with concrete floors and carried them to freedom.
They were taken to a place where they will be able to live their lives
free from cages and fences, able to enjoy sunshine and grass as opposed
to steel bars and concrete floors. As we brought them to their new home,
they immediately stopped crying, began eating the grass around them, and
enjoyed their surroundings. They listened to us and licked our faces as
we soothed them before leaving the three of them on their own. They will
no longer be victims to animal exploitation or slaughter for human
The FFA is an organization that teaches kids from a young age how to
carry on the fucked up tradition of anthropocentrism, where they are
taught how to raise animals for exploitation, abuse, and eventually
murder. FFA is known for keeping animals in small, dirty, unkempt,
confined places where they lack nurturing and stimulating interaction
with other animals. As long as the FFA continues to raise animals for
the meat, dairy, or egg industries, the ALF will continue to take
actions against these practices.
February 10, 2008 -- 47 Rats Rescued
"Recently, concerned citizens rescued 47 rats who were apparently
part of a breeding program at Scripps 'Mercy' Hospital in the Hillcrest
area of San Diego. We entered through an unlocked door and found these
beautiful innocent creatures living in squalor. Eight were crammed into
each tiny barren cage. Their white fur was matted in urine and feces.
Their babies were to be stolen from them and tortured in useless
experiments, but now they are in loving homes where they will spend the
rest of their lives as individuals, rather than research tools to be
discarded when no longer necessary.
Who are the terrorists in this situation: those who peacefully rescue
neglected beings from abuse and cruelty, or those who terrify, torture
and destroy innocent life?
This rescue is dedicated to the brave people who speak out and more
importantly act in support of direct action and rescue."
February 7, 2008 -- Promises Kept
According to media reports, an incendiary device was left at the
front door of UCLA vivisector Edythe London's home in Los Angeles early
on February 5. The "device" charred the front door. Nobody was home at
the time of the fire.
The incident follows an
ALF action at London's home during which a window was broken and a
garden hose inserted, flooding her home and causing over $20,000 in
damages. In the communiqu' released following the action, the ALF
promised to return if necessary, "One more thing Edythe, water was our
second choice, fire was our first.... It would have been just as easy to
burn your house down Edythe. As you slosh around your flooded house
consider yourself fortunate this time. We will not stop until UCLA
discontinues its primate vivisection program."
February 2, 2008 -- McDonalds Flooded
"In broad daylight today, the ALF visited a branch of a murderous
fast food joint and flushed multiple sponges down their pipes,
flooding the entire restaurant with piss and shit, making the whole
place smell of death - the death and suffering of millions of cows,
chickens and other animals that go into their 'happy meals.'
New York City is a bad place to peddle animal cruelty.
Be warned animal abusers - your animal abusing bullshit is not
tolerated in NEW YORK CITY!"

"Monday night (Jan 28, 2008) we paid another visit to [address

and glued some locks. As Phenomenex continues to be a supplier we will
continue to stop by. We used yellow paint just for you Farajollah. We
figured that with all of this rain you might have been missing those
gorgeous sunsets from that Palos Verdes estate that we are familiarizing
ourselves with. See you there soon. (You won't see us.) Drop HLS just
like all of the wise ones have.
Tuesday night (Jan 29, 2008) we paid another visit to [address
deleted], Inglewood CA. We redecorated with black paint and glued the
locks. Hubnet, you are still working with HLS so we are still watching.
We also hit the little blue Hubnet van out front with some paint. We
didn't expect to see it out there otherwise it would have gone up in
flames. Cut those HLS ties or you'll hear from us again. Count on it.

kittens, puppies, as well as adult cats and dogs and other companion

This time two cars in the driveway (we think both BMWs. we aren't
sure it was dark and we move fast) at [address deleted] in Los Angeles were
doused with paint stripper. Robin Kramer, your job as chief to the mayor
affords you the ability to push for LAAS to catch up with the times and
transition to 'no kill.' Why are you not pushing?
To all of those who can push for this change, please start pushing.
We don't want to have to keep this up but we certainly will if need be.
