About ALF > History

The following is perhaps the most detailed list of fur farm raids and sabotage from across the globe. Compiled by the SG in the Netherlands, the list details 353 raids from all over the world since 1995. If there was any question of the impact direct action has on an industry and the animals saved, it may not be better illustrated than in the war against the fur trade.
