This site is dedicated to the memory of Barry Horne, an animal liberation activist who died in a UK prison hospital on November 5, 2001. He had been sentenced to 18 years in prison for various criminal damage and arson attacks mainly against companies involved in vivisection.

In prison he went on hunger strike several times in protest against government support for the vivisection industry, and their broken pre-election promises about animal experiments. The third of these hunger strikes lasted 68 days, and Barry never fully recovered.

His actions generated worldwide publicity, and initiated a huge upsurge in animal liberation activity, the effects of which are still being felt even today.

This site will include details of Barry's life and achievements as an animal liberation activist as well as his imprisonment and subsequent hunger strike protests. If you have any contributions to make, please contact [email protected]

We will also mark the anniversary of Barry's death on November 5th each year. Each anniversary of his death has been marked by actions all over the world, of which some will be listed here. Meanwhile please visit
