December 28, 2008 -- Holiday Packages Sent to Naughty Vivisectors

anonymous communique:

"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 treatment.

Every action has an impact. Every life saved is a victory.

For an end to systematic violence and oppression. For total animal liberation,
ANIMAL LIBERATION BRIGADE"


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

received anonymously:

"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 (freeman@neurovision.berkeley.edu), we sent the virus to Brian Pasley (bpasley@socrates.berkeley.edu), Thang Duong (thangd@uclink.berkeley.edu), Elena Allen (eadelle@uclink.berkeley.edu), Nina Yang (ninay@neurovision.berkeley.edu), Lars Eric Holm (larseric@neurovision.berkeley.edu), BaoWang Li (libaowang@neurovision.berkeley.edu), and Ahalya Viswanathan (ahalya_v@uclink.berkeley.edu)

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 Locked Shut

received anonymously:

"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 locksmith fees.

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

received anonymously:

"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.)

first off:
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.

secondly:
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...

and lastly:
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 flames.
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.

with love,
ALF"


November 25, 2008 -- Incendiary Device Placed Under Vivisectors Car

anonymous communique:

"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 lab records.

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 time.

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

anonymous communique:

"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?

November 12, 2008 -- Animal Rights Militia Visit Vivsector


anonymous report:

"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 direct action in the past. The attacks on him and UC-Berkeley's true terrorists will continue until the murder of innocents ends.

November 4, 2008 -- Vehicles Sabotaged at UCLA?

anonymous communique:

"The torure of monkeys continues therefore so shall we.
In thinking of the things that are of importance to the University of Los Angeles, sadly, with high moral standards, fair and just treatment of the innocent and vunerable animals, and responsible and safe medicine not being on the list, we have taken a sudden interest in college football.
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

anonymous communique:

"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.

October 29, 2008 -- UCLA Commuter Vans Continue to Be Targets

received anonymously:

"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

anonymous report:

"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 sabotage!

October 8, 2008 -- Shotgun Shells Slipped Into Tailpipes of UCLA Vans

received anonymously:

"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 off.

Leave the primates out of your inept and outdated science and we will leave you out of our quest for justice."


October 7, 2008 -- Cars Paint-Stripped At Home of Vivisector

anonymous report:

"Thought we'd shout out a big screw you to bill 2296 so we paint stripped three cars in the driveway of UCLA vivisector [address deleted] in Santa Monica.

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 sadistic fuck that gets off on tormenting monkeys. We suggest you hold your breath the next time you start your car.

Keep up the revolution, friends in Mexico, Berkeley, Santa Cruz and around the world.

October 5, 2008 - Actions Continue Despite "Researcher Protection Act"

anonymous communique:

"This is a delayed report. We were inspired by the recent passage of the 2296 bill and the raid of an anarchist infoshop in Oakland. As the vivisectors revel in their false safety, know this. This law changes NOTHING. We are still here and we intend to act.

We would like to take credit for three actions. We threw stones through windows at Ralph Freeman's Vine Street home, breaking two.

Frederic Theunissen's car was scratched up with a hammer. This same hammer was used to smash a large window on his home in the middle of the night.

Ralph Freeman has killed cats and kittens in his laboratory at UC Berkeley with no benefit for humans for over twenty years. Frederic Theunissen is responsible for the torture of birds in his laboratory. These animals are denied movement and cut open for his insane, unscientific studies.

All the vivisectors and anyone assisting in this sadism at UC Berkeley (researchers, post-docs) shall consider themselves an appropriate target. And remember, cameras and motion lights have done nothing for Theunissen and Freeman. Get out of the death trade for good.

For our sisters and brothers fighting in Mexico.

September 24, 2008 -- Largest U.S. Fur Farm Raid in Years

anonymous communique:

"September 21, 2008

Three members of the Animal Liberation Front entered a massive mink prison in Kaysville, Utah last night. On releasing about 10,000 mink we found and destroyed all breeding records. We also vandalized the trucks and various forms of equipment, including destroying the electrical 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. Its been too long since we have fought. Now is the time. The pelting season is soon.

Don't let the animals be destroyed so their skin can be worn by some rich bitch. There is nothing glamorous about wearing an animal's carcass.

We urge you to get involved, now more than ever. Act up, fight back! Defend the defenseless until there are no prisons left.

September 12, 2008 -- Cages Cut Open at Lab Animal Supplier

reported anonymously:

"Late on September 10 we entered the compound of Worldwide Primates (16450 SW 180th Street, Miami, Florida) and cut large holes in 4 outdoor cages. Each cage held 5 or 6 monkeys.

There is no doubt that monkeys can survive in Florida. There are hundreds of wild monkeys in colonies across the state. Worldwide Primates is surrounded by fruit farms.

Worldwide Primates is the business of convicted baby orangutan smuggler Matthew Block. He spent one year in prison and then went back to work importing and selling primates to vivisection labs.

"Inspired by the recent liberations in Utah and British Columbia; we released between 100 and 150 mink from S&N Fur Farm (40499 Oupor Drive) in Scio, Oregon. Though thousands more mink remain imprisoned on this 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 before we will. Till the last cage is empty, till all beings are free. ALF

August 10, 2008 -- Two UCLA Vans Expropriated

anonymous communique:

"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 day.

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 the 405.

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 fairbanks and other sadists who enjoy tormenting and killing monkeys is to confront them covertly or overtly where ever and whenever you can. hey, how about following them to their cars in their parking structures? there are a lot of ways to cost the bastards money and make torturing nonhuman animals less rewarding.

We effectively removed one of them from it's location in Riverside county last weekend. The funding that UCLA spent on purchasing this particular van will be redirected to save animals rather than the torturing of monkeys that UCLA is doing.

received anonymously:

"To all of the activists who went to speak out against Staples' continued support of the murderous Huntingdon Life Sciences this weekend we would like to apologize for not showing up to be by your side. We instead took a little drive south to spend the weekend in Orange County. You should have seen how pretty the beaches were last weekend, the ocean was exceptionally gorgeous and even warm enough for a quick dip. Anyhow, thanks for organizing and showing up for the weekend of action demos.

Oh, and by the way, we did spend our afternoons last weekend visiting as many of the OC Staples locations as we could. Direct action walked right in the front door. We flushed compressed sponges down quite a few of Staples' easily accessable toilets followed by handfuls of toilet paper. Several Staples stores should be making expensive phone calls to plumbers this week. (our recipe: kitchen sponge, rinse, ring out, fold as small as possible, bind with rubber bands, let dry until stiff then flush away.)

June 13, 2008 -- UCLA Van Goes Up in Flames

anonymous communiqu':

"At the start of last week, in Irvine, CA, a van owned by UCLA went up in flames.
For all of those affected you have the UCLA primate vivisection program to blame.
It is unacceptable for us to see, hear, and know what is going on in our 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.

anonymous report:

"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.

"Action: Incendiary device left under Staples delivery truck.
Action: Small explosive device inserted into exhaust system of additional Staples delivery truck. (If it hasn't been activated yet, it will as soon as it gets hot enough.)

When: Two consecutive nights, The last week of April.

Where: San Diego area.

Reason: Staples support of HLS in the UK is unacceptable. When you should be seeing animal torture and murder you are seeing profits instead. We hope to clear that up for you and to guide you towards the proper ethical choice.

This will continue (so many of those trucks...) until the CEO of Staples USA and Staples UK publically, and permanently cut ties with HLS."

McDavid, Eric x-2972521 7E128
Sacramento County Main Jail
651 "I" Street
Sacramento, CA 95814
U.S.A.

In September 2007, Eric McDavid was found guilty of conspiracy to sabotage federal facilities in the name of the environment. The 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

anonymous communiqu':

"Sunday 4/20/2008

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

anonymous communiqu':

"04-21-08

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 of Vivisector

anonymous communiqu':

"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 larger.
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.
Ever.

February 19, 2008 -- Billboards, Honeybaked Ham Vandalized

received anonymously:

"Having recently learned to anonymously claim actions over the internet, there are actions we've taken that we'd now like to take credit for, both to inspire others and add to the record of animal libration actions.

9 billboards were hit with paint-filled lightbulbs we learned how to make from the Swedish ALF instructional video in the preceding 3 years.

Several billboards were also vandalized with spraypaint during the same period.

A Honey Baked Ham store was vandalized with spraypainted slogans.

A rat was rescued from a glue trap.

February 13, 2008 -- Three Goats Rescued From Agricultural School

anonymous communiqu':

"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 greed.

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

anonymous communiqu':

"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 October 20th 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

reported anonymously:

"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!"


January 31, 2008 -- Late Night Visits to HLS Suppliers

received anonymously:

"Monday night (Jan 28, 2008) we paid another visit to [address deleted] in San Clemente, CA. We redecorated with bright yellow paint 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.

In solidarity with those who put on the black ski masks and acted on Phenomenex in the UK this week and for the animals suffering inside of Huntingdon Life Sciences,

January 19, 2008 -- L.A. Gov't Official Visited by ALF

anonymous communiqu':

"1/13/2008

As the list of innocent animals dying in the city of Los Angeles' animal "shelters" grows so does the list of people we will pay a visit to. People who are close to the mayor know of the abuse that is happening inside of LAAS and the same people have the ability to affect the changes that are needed to save the lives of placeable and adoptable kittens, puppies, as well as adult cats and dogs and other companion animals.

We've been stopping by to remind you of this.

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.
