July 7, 2017 - HACKERS EXPOSE THOUSANDS OF CUSTOMERS OF BULLFIGHTING TICKET SELLER

received anonymously; hacktivists copied customer details dating back to 2007, but we have only uploaded information from 20172016 and 2015:
"Hot on the heals of hacking Teyci and their ticketstoros.com web site
our campaign against bullfighting continues today with the complete
owning of Localidades Galicia Ltd of Madrid. This disgusting company
sells tickets to people who wish to watch animals getting tortured to
death by armed thugs in the bullring in Madrid. They operate a web site
at https://www.bullfightticketsmadrid.com for this purpose.
We are happy to announce that Localidades Galicia has been hacked and
their entire customer database has been copied. Over 42,000 people who
bought bullfighting tickets from this company from 2007 to the present
day have now been exposed.
To anyone reading this who is not familiar with bullfighting, please
visit the following links before continuing to read. In order to
understand why you should care about the hacking of this data you first
need to understand the sickness that is bullfighting.
http://sharkonline.org/index.php/animal-cruelty/bullfighting
http://lcanimal.org/index.php/campaigns/animals-in-entertainment/bullfighting
http://www.stopbullfighting.org.uk/
https://secure.peta.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=2287
Every single person listed in the leaked customer database has paid
money to go and watch animals get tortured to death. Bullfighting could
not happen if these people did not pay to watch it. Each person went to
the bullring thinking that there would be no consequences for this and
that they could hide safely behind a concrete wall watching the torture
then simply carry on with their life. They were wrong.
There is now an opportunity for caring people around the world to bring
about at least some justice. Each coward's full name, telephone number
and email address is included in the leaked database. There are tourists
from the USA, Germany, France, UK, and other countries as well as local
residents of Spain. Do give serious consideration to making contact with
some of them and communicating in whatever way seems best to you. A bit
of effort searching on Linkedin, Facebook and other online sources can
probably also dig up photos, home addresses, employers and all kinds of
other information about these people. We will leave it up to others
around the world to decide how best to use the information. Let your
imagination run wild.
People involved in supporting and promoting bullfighting in any way need
to understand that they can no longer do this without facing personal
consequences. Each and every company involved can and will be hacked.
Each and every person involved will be identified, named and shamed. You
have been getting away with this for far too long. It is time that you
were made accountable.
Everyone has a part to play in this campaign to bring down the
bullfighting industry. No matter what your particular skills or
circumstances you can help.
People with some level of technical proficiency who have not hacked
before and would like to try should read the following two guides.
https://pastebin.com/raw/cRYvK4jb
https://pastebin.com/raw/0SNSvyjJ
You can then either act completely alone or get involved with the
Anonymous movement. The link below will walk you through joining our IRC
server to collaborate with other like-minded individuals if that is what
you choose to do.
https://newblood.anonops.com/
If hacking is not for you please take time to put pressure on the people
listed in the database in whatever way you see fit. If even 10% of them
decide to never attend another bullfight that is less money for the
companies involved.
Last of all you can contact Localidades Galicia Ltd directly on +34 91
531 9131 and galicia@bullfightticketsmadrid.com if you want to speak to
them about their business model. They are probably a bit busy at the
moment trying to work out how they got completely pwned but we are sure
they would love to hear from you anyway.

We are Legion
We do not forgive
We do not forget
Expect us."

June 1, 2017 - OFFICIAL TICKET SELLER FOR MADRID BULLRING HACKED

received anonymously:
"The ticketstoros.com web site was recently hacked by Anonymous and a
large quantity of personal data belonging to bullfight supporters was
taken. The site is operated by a company called Teyci which is one of
the main promoters of bullfights in Madrid, Spain. The web site is one
of the main methods used by people to purchase tickets for attending
bullfights there.
Teyci states the following on their web site.
'CUSTOMER DATA.
Ticketstoros.com guarantees the security and confidentiality of all data
provided to us. The data will not be used for anything beyond what is
necessary to provide information related to the bullfights for which you
have purchased the tickets.'
The truth is that the site was actually very insecure and gaining access
to the customer database was trivial. Customer data was not protected
with any care at all and so all those people who thought they could
support and engage in animal torture with impunity are now known to us.
We know who you are, which bullfight you attended and even how much you
paid for the ticket.
Included below is a small sample of some of the data that was taken from
the large database. All the people who have bought bullfighting tickets
through this company are now being contacted to inform them that they
will face consequences for their actions.
Bullfighting is nothing more than a relic of a savage past and it is
inevitable that it will one day be banned. Until then Anonymous is
committed to holding accountable those who promote or support this
atrocity in any way. Further news of our activities to disrupt this
industry will be made public in the near future.
We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget.
Expect us.

March 25, 2017 - 53 CHICKENS LIBERATED

reported by the Colectivo Abolicionista Antiespecista (translation); click here for more photos from the rescue:
"RESCUE OF 53 ANIMALS FROM ONE OF THE LARGEST BIRD FARMS IN SPAIN
In the early morning hours of February 26, sympathizers of the Antispeciesist Abolitionist Collective carried out a rescue of 53 hens from inside one of the largest bird farms in the country.
On this occasion, the rescue was at an industrial farm, however, we oppose any type of exploitation (ecological, industrial, small scale, etc) since, regardless of the treatment they receive on one farm or another (artificial light for constant laying of eggs, overcrowding, beak cutting, size of the cage or pen, etc.) it is always unfair to use someone against their will to make a profit, in this case economic.
The 53 rescued ones are enjoying their new life in freedom, where they have learned to walk, and to take baths in the sand and sun. In short, to make their own decisions and to live.
The consumption of eggs caused these birds to spend their whole lives locked in cages, treated as mere production machines, having been genetically selected for a massive laying of eggs (it is worth mentioning that a hen in its natural state would lay some twenty eggs a year; on these farms they lay more than three hundred a year), resultting in physical wear and tear that leads to death in less than two years, when this type of bird can live for more than fifteen.
The animals, the slaves of SXXI, suffer the greatest discrimination that exists today, which is speciesism.
We are all interested in living our lives, regardless of the species to which we belong. If you agree with this, inform yourself and consider becoming vegan.
AGAINST ANY EXPLOITATION, ANIMAL LIBERATION!"
Spanish:
"RESCATE DE 53 ANIMALES DE UNA DE LAS MAYORES GRANJAS AVÍCOLAS DE ESPAÑA
La madrugada del pasado 26 de Febrero, simpatizantes del Colectivo Abolicionista Antiespecista, llevaron a cabo un rescate de 53 gallinas, del interior de una de las explotaciones más grandes del sector avícola del país.
En esta ocasión el rescate ha sido en una granja de tipo industrial, no obstante, nos oponemos a cualquier tipo de explotación (ecológica, industrial, a pequeña escala etc) puesto que, independientemente del trato que reciban en una granja u otra (intervalos de luz artificial para la constante puesta de huevos, hacinamiento, corte de pico, tamaño de jaula o corral, etc) siempre es injusto utilizar a alguien en contra de su voluntad para sacar un beneficio, en este caso económico.
Las 53 rescatadas disfrutan de su nueva vida en libertad, donde han aprendido a andar, y a darse baños de arena y sol. En definitiva, a tomar sus propias decisiones y vivir.
El consumo de huevos provoca que estas aves pasen toda su vida encerradas en jaulas, tratadas como meras máquinas de producción, habiendo sido seleccionadas genéticamente para una puesta masiva de huevos (cabe mencionar que una gallina en estado natural pondría unos veinte huevos al año y en las explotaciones alcanzan la cantidad de más de trescientos al año), generándolas un desgaste físico que las lleva a la muerte en menos de dos años, cuando este tipo de aves puede vivir incluso más de quince.
Los animales, los esclavos del sXXI , padecen la mayor discriminación existente a día de hoy, que es el especismo.
Todxs tenemos interés en vivir nuestras vidas, independientemente de la especie a la que pertenezcamos. Si estás de acuerdo con esto, infórmate y considera hacerte veganx.
¡CONTRA TODA EXPLOTACIÓN, LIBERACIÓN ANIMAL!"

December 7, 2016 - ANIMAL LIBERATION PROPAGANDA


anonymous report (translation):

"The traditional festivals have their propaganda for consuming animals in various forms with the names of 'meat, seafood, bacon, chop', denying that behind these names are corpses of dead animals.

In a decentralized way, we have been making propaganda for animal liberation in the street, for those victims who have no name, only numbers and are objectified everyday.

This campaign is being carried out in Barcelona and the rest of Catalonia.
If not you, who?, if not now, when?

Let propaganda be also that of the oppressed."

Spanish:

"Las tradicionales fiestas tienen su propaganda para consumir animales en diversas formas con los nombres de 'carne, marisco, bacon, chuleta', negando que detrás de esos nombres hay cadáveres de animales muertos.

De manera descentralizada se viene haciendo propaganda por la liberación animal en la calle, por esas víctimas que no tienen nombre, sino números y son cosificados en el día a día.

Esta campaña se viene realizando en Barcelona y resto de Cataluña.

¿Si no tú, quién?, ¿si no ahora, cuándo?.

Que la propaganda sea también la de las oprimidas."






November 1, 2016 - PRIVATE HUNTING AREA SABOTAGED

anonymous report (translation by Earth First! Journal):

"DEFEND THE EARTH!

Let us defend the Earth from those wish to privatize it, let's defend the Earth from those who think it belongs to them, let's defend the Earth from those who wish to destroy it!

We do not want to see how something which cannot belong to anyone, the Earth, is privatized and destroyed by capitalist interests. We do not wish to see how animals can be caged, with murder by hunters as their destiny. It is because of this that we took action, we attacked private property and the capitalist interests which sought to reap benefits from hunting caged animals.
We do not understand walls, nor cages, nor fences; it is because of this that we fight to open new pathways through which light can pass, through which new airs pass, and through which free animals and humans may pass.

With the objective of opening new pathways to freedom, we have destroyed parts of the fence which surrounded a private property where economic benefits were sought through the hunting of animals caged within the fence. We [cut] open the fence to make way for life and freedom for those imprisoned animals who faced with sure death.

We utilized direct action, we utilized attack and sabotage as tools for propaganda and as tools to halt the advancement of exploitation and the extermination of 'our' planet.

We make a call out to rebel against this established system, we make a call out in defense of the Earth, we make a call out to diffuse direct action as a tool to halt the violence.

Let's defend the Earth!

Spanish:

"DEFENDAMOS LA TIERRA!

Defendamos la tierra de aquellxs que la quieren privatizar, defendamos la tierra de aquellxs que piensan que es suya, defendamos la tierra de aquellxs que la quieren destruir!

No queremos ver como aquello que tendría que ser de nadie, la tierra, es privatizada y destruida por los intereses capitalistas. No queremos ver como los animales son enjaulados, el asesinato por parte de cazadorxs, es su único destino.

Es por eso que pasamos a la acción, atacamos a la propiedad privada y a los intereses capitalistas que buscan la obtención de beneficios a partir de la caza privada de animales enjaulados.

No entendemos de muros, de jaulas ni vallas, es por eso que luchamos para abrir nuevas vías por dónde pueda pasar la luz, por dónde pasen nuevos aires, por dónde podamos pasar libres animales y personas.

Con el objetivo de abrir nuevos caminos de libertad, hemos destruido parte de la valla que delimitaba una gran propiedad privada dónde se generan beneficios económicos a partir de la caza de animales que se encuentran presos dentro de esta valla. Abrimos la valla para abrir una brecha de vida y libertad frente a la muerte segura para todos los animales que se encuentran presos.

Utilizamos la acción directa, utilizamos el ataque y el sabotaje como herramienta de propaganda y como herramienta para frenar el avance de la explotación y exterminio de “nuestro” planeta.

Hacemos un llamamiento a rebelarnos contra el sistema establecido, hacemos un llamamiento a la defensa de la tierra, hacemos un llamamiento a la difusión de la acción directa como herramienta para hacer frente a su violencia.

Defendamos la Tierra!

October 27, 2016 - FENCES CUT, DEER FREED FROM FARM

received anonymously (translation):

"Sabotage of a deer farm in Guipúzcoa (Spanish State)

In the middle of this month we carried out a sabotage by creating an opening in the fences that had imprisoned a group of 20 deer. These comrades were captives in a farm in Guipúzcoa and were destined for the slaughterhouse or the systematic rape that the meat industry carries out of all females of reproductive age.

With this action we intended to attack the Hermanos Zandio company that currently has 3 farms that they call organic livestock farms. For us, fences and a space of semi-freedom is a prison and even more so if the goal is to produce for economic ends. The organic label continues to be a way of downplaying the exploitation, abuse, rape and death that they carry out against animals.

Enough of the hypocrisy and fallacies, we want to put an end to their businesses, their bars, and we want to hear the bellowing of our comrades in the mountain, free.

Freedom also for all anarchists who struggle every day in State prisons.

October 2016

ALF Group Zarzamora"


Spanish:

"Sabotaje en una granja de ciervas de Guipuzcoa (Estado Español)

A mediados de este mes hemos realizado un sabotaje abriendo una salida en las vallas que tenían prisioneras a un grupo de 20 ciervas. Estas compañeras estaban cautivas en una Granja de Guipúzcoa e iban a ser
destinadas al matadero o a la violación sistemática que ejerce la industria cárnica hacia todas las hembras en edad fértil.

Con esta acción pretendemos atacar a la empresa Hermanos Zandio que actualmente tiene 3 granjas autodenominadas como ganadería ecológica. Para nosotras, unas vallas y un espacio de semilibertad, es una cárcel más si tiene un fin productivo y económico. El sujeto ecológico no deja de ser una forma de subestimar la explotación, maltrato, violación y muerte que se ejerce hacia las animales.

Basta de hipocresía y falacias, queremos acabar con sus negocios, sus rejas, y queremos escuchar los bramidos de nuestras compañeras en el monte, en libertad.

Libertad también para todas las anarquistas que luchan cada día desde las cárceles del Estado.

Octubre del 2016

August 10, 2016 - INSIDE OF BULLRING PAINTED


anonymous report (translation):

"On August 8 we got access to the bullring in a village in
Aragon, Spain, to point out (just before the patronage festivals were 
celebrated) that 'IF THERE IS A VICTIM IT'S NOT A PARTY'.

We also spray-painted 'STOP THE TORTURE' and 'ANIMAL LIBERATION'."

Spanish:
"El día 8 de agosto conseguimos acceder a la plaza de toros de un pueblo de
Aragón, España, para recordar (poco antes de que se celebrasen las fiestas
patronales) que 'SI HAY UNA VÍCTIMA NO ES UNA FIESTA'.

June 26, 2016 - ANIMAL LIBERATION GRAFFITI



reported anonymously (translation):

"We decided to take to the streets of Barcelona to leave a clear message for animal liberation; our weapons are paper, brushes and paint to demonstrate the oppression of speciesism, anyone can do it, leaving the lethargy and boredom that the city offers us.

Wake up and take to the streets, do all we can do, for those who are exploited it is necessary.

We decided to use multiple messages, in solidarity with vegan, straight edge and anarchist prisoner Juan Manuel Bustamante Vergara (Nahuel), appropriating public space, which belongs to us.

The messages said 'no class oppression, no species oppression, animal liberation' and 'if speciesism is the law, veganism is justice.'
Temporary autonomous cell for animal liberation.

Neither speciesism, nor reductionism, liberation!

Since Thursday Nahuel has been on hunger strike.

Remember the vegan prisoners!"

Despierta y sal a la calle, todas podemos hacerlo, es necesario por quienes son explotadas.

Decidimos usar varios mensajes, y solidarizarnos con el preso vegano,straight edge y anarquista Juan Manuel Bustamante Vergara (Nahuel), apropiándonos del espacio público, el que nos pertenece.

Los mensajes dicen 'ni opresión de clase ni opresión de especie , liberación animal' y 'si el especismo es ley, el veganismo es justicia'.
