November 8, 2012 - THOUSANDS OF MINK DYED WITH HENNA

anonymous report:

"In the small village Hovby outside of Kristianstad, thousands of minks are kept in cages waiting to be gassed to death and skinned before the end of November.
With security, motion detectors and a two meter high corrigated fence the farmer tries to avoid any insight to the suffering he is responsible for.
On the night of the 7th November 2012 we climbed the fence with litres of henna dye in our backpacks and managed to avoid all the motion detectors.
We have to be creative when neither politicians or the law is standing up for the animals, and the farmers get more and more paranoid.
All together we dyed 4500 minks, which will be a huge economic loss for the farmer.
Until every cage is empty,
De Vilda Minkarna, DVM"

Swedish:
"I Hovby utanf�r Kristianstad sitter tusentals minkar insp�rrade just nu i v�ntan p� att gasas ihj�l och fl�s innan november m�nads slut.
Med bevakning, r�relselarm och tv� meter h�gt pl�tstaket f�rs�ker farmaren f�rhindra insyn i djurpl�geriet.
Natten till den 7 november 2012 kl�ttrade vi med litervis av hennaf�rg i v�ra v�skor, �ver staketet, f�rbi larmen.
Vi m�ste vara kreativa n�r varken lagar eller politiker tar djurens parti och p�lsindustrin blir mer och mer paranoid.
Sammanlagt f�rgade vi ca 4500 minkar, vilket kommer inneb�ra en stor ekonomisk f�rlust f�r farmaren.
Tills varje bur �r tom,

November 2, 2012 - ALF OPEN CAGES, FREE 1,600 MINK

received anonymously and translated by the Swedish Earth & Animal Liberation Front Press Office:

"In the early morning of 1 November about 1600 mink were liberated outside of Skara, Sweden. These innocent animals were sentenced to death, so we set them free.

Mink are born in ultra small metal cages where they live a short life of total boredom and despair. Mink are aquatic animals who want to swim and live much of their life in water. Just imagine being forced to live in a metal wire cage when your natural life largely consists of swimming. After 6 months it is time to die. It is done in the most fascist way, namely by gas. The farms are actually death camps, with thousands and thousands of innocent victims.

Some nasty liars, animal abusers of all kinds, will say, and have already said that 'this is animal cruelty' - yes ironically they say that liberating animals out of cruelty is cruel.
The embarrassingly ignorant spokesman, Johan Dal�n, of the 'swedish fur farmers organisation' says with forced seriousness: They will all suffer and almost every one will starve to death in nature.
- To answer seriously: 100% of the mink suffer at the farm. 100% are to die at the farm, if they are not released. Much indicates that many mink survive in nature.
To Johan we say: don't pretend that you care about the lives of mink when you actually get all your money from the deaths of mink.

If the mink thrived in their cages they would not be running out in less than a minute like they did that night. You better not speak untruthfully again Johan Dal�n.

There is a mink population in Sweden because people liberated mink and they have managed to survive. They were not here until about 90 years ago.
But the climate is suitable for mink here, and they have never caused the extinction of other species or a local 'eco-collapse' as some animal haters say. Only humans have managed to do that!
After less than 100 years of breeding, the mink clearly still have their instincts. That takes much longer to subjugate.
You don't have to be very smart to realize that the mink are strong enough to survive. The fact that there are many wild mink in Sweden proves that.

We will not let the liar Johan Dal�n be unexposed.
We also want to encourage the media to do some serious investigation about the animals and mink in freedom, and not only quote the lies of the abusers.

This action was made in the early morning of World Vegan Day.
Veganism shall not be only about sitting with your vegan friends eating vegan burgers and being proud about NOT killing as many animals as an average person.
Of course it is good to be Vegan and motivate others to GO VEGAN, but Veganism can be really powerful when you act directly- releasing the animals.

By opening just ONE cage you can change a life forever. By lifting an animal to freedom you save the entire world - for that animal.
Don't let your own fear or anything else stand between you and the freedom and life of another animal. That is not fair.

Open the cages

-Djurens Befrielsefront, Swedish ALF"


October 26, 2012 - CAR SET ABLAZE AT HOME OF ASTRAZENECA (HLS CUSTOMER) EXECUTIVE

received anonymously:

"10/25/12

In the early hours we lit up the sky for all that is wild.
We want to send this message to all the animal abusers and nature exploiters.
We know how to find you and we will attack! We won't ask nicely anymore.
Now it was Anders Olof Adolf Ekblom's turn to feel the heat. Anders is President of AstraZeneca Sverige AB, Executive Vice President, Development AZ Int.

AZ is one of the biggest clients of Huntingdon Life Sciences, a company
that alone kills 500 animals a day.
By being a client AZ pays for the torture inside HLS this makes them as much to blame for what happens inside HLS's gates as HLS themselves.

We burned down your nice AUDI A6 on your driveway at Kul�rgr�nd 6
Jarfalla, Sweden, in the hope that maybe now you get the message and stop your dealings with HLS.

If people want to ask Anders 'Adolf' Ekblom to stop dealing with HLS you can call him on this number +46(0)858 033 429

until everybody is free
and every cage is empty

September 13, 2012 - CLAIM OF RESPONSIBILITY FOR FISH FARM RAID

anonymous claim of responsibility:

"On the night of the 28th of August the ALF visited Umlax fish farm in northern Sweden.
With the help of the dark night and a couple of knives we cut open all of the farm's 18 big nets allowing 520,000 (131 tons) fish to swim out in freedom into the Umea river.
Instead of forced lives in cramped captivity with stress and diseases that end in being killed, sold, and eaten, over half a million individuals were given the chance of a life in freedom, the opportunity to make decisions, rest, and find food.

We don't think the fish care that the farm was uninsured, or that the farmer has put out a reward of 10,000 euro to the public to catch the liberators.
We think the fish would rather live a life in freedom, however short or long it may be, than to live in the hell that a fish farm is.

All animals have a right to their freedom!
Let's go out in the night and liberate!

ALF"

Swedish:
"Natten till den 28e augusti bes�kte DBF Umlax fiskodling i v�sterbotten. Med hj�lp av m�rkret och ett g�ng knivar skars 18 stora n�tkassar upp och 520 000 regnb�gslaxar (motsvarande 131 ton) kunde simma ut i friheten i Ume�lven.
Ist�llet f�r ett p�tvingat liv i tr�ngsel, stress och oh�lsa som avslutas med att bli d�dad, s�ld och upp�ten fick �ver en halv miljon individer m�jlighet till ett liv i frihet.
M�jlighet att uppt�cka, ta beslut, vila, hitta mat och en chans att f� k�mpa f�r sin �verlevnad.
Vi tror inte fiskarna bryr sig om att farmen var of�rs�krad, att m�nniskor f�rlorar sina jobb eller att farmaren har utlyst en bel�ning p� 100 000 kr f�r att f� fast dom som sl�ppte ut fiskarna.
Vi tror att dom hellre lever ett liv i frihet, hur kort eller l�ngt det �n blir, �n att leva i det helvete som ett liv inst�ngd i en n�tkasse inneb�r.
F�r oss �r det sj�lvklart att alla djur som lever i f�ngenskap f�rtj�nar sin frihet!

July 18, 2012 - 180 HENS SAVED

reported anonymously:

"On the night of the 16th of July 2012 activists visited Dalshults Djurfarm outside of �rkelljunga in the south of Sweden. They entered through an open door and saved 180 hens that had been exploited by the egg industry all their lives.
The action won't effect the industry remarkably, the farm won't even close down, but for the 180 individuals saved it means a life free from oppression.

"Aktivister bes�kte natten till den 16 juli 2012 Dalshults Djurfarm utanf�r �rkelljunga i s�dra Sverige. De gick in genom en �ppen d�rr och r�ddade 180 h�nor som utnyttjats hela sina liv av �ggindustrin.

June 28, 2012 - FUR FARM RAID CALLED OFF, FARM EMPTY

anonymous report, received by �rebro's ALF/DBF Press Office:

"We went to Nacksta mink farm, just outside Sundsvall in the north of Sweden, prepared to release all the minks from their death camp.
There would be minks in only 3 sheds left of the existing 20 we had heard.
When we arrived we found a farm totally without fences and With very high grass at most of the area.

After having searched the farm meticulously, we were happily surprised to see that the farm had closed.
They had probably gassed the last mink in the fall of 2011 if not later, because there was still littering and no vegetation under at least one of the sheds.

We feel in our hearts compassion with all those minks that were left behind to die in the gas tank.
There will at least die no more minks at Nacksta minkfarm, that we will ensure.

May 5, 2012 - ADBUSTING

adbusting

reported by activists in Sweden ("reklamfri stad" = "ad-free city"):

"There have been ongoing campaigns of ad busting in Uppsala, Sweden lately. We've noticed that the ad companies have a hard time keeping their ads tidy, especially when the glass has been broken. We are convinced that their business in Uppsala is currently extremely unprofitable, though when we're dealing with multinational corporations (JCDecaux and ClearChannel) the struggle has to be fought all over the world. Join it!

For the planet, people and all other animals. Love and rage!"

"... advertising presents an ideal image that few can live up to. It is not only the products sold, but the idea of ​​the successful person. The viewer is prompted, through consumption, to fill the void that occurs when they do not recognize themselves in advertisements, to thereby balance the difference between himself and the ideal. The increased consumption is not only bad for the individual, but also for the environment.... To destroy advertising is a way to show that there is resistance, and that the situation can be changed. It is to take power and have a voice, something that in itself is gratifying."

"In solidarity with the 22 years old activist from Gothenburg, who was
recently sentenced to 3,5 years in prison and a fine of almost �50 000 for several threats against various animal oppressors, and for arson on McDonalds, two McMurder restaurants in Gothenburg, and four in Stockholm have had their toilets clogged by flushing a nylon stocking, stuffed with about 50% plaster (gips) and 50% sawdust (the kind you get from pet stores). This is a very safe, simple and effective action that can (and should) be done by everyone. Remember to bring a stick to push the stocking down if it gets stuck in the toilet, and remember to bring the stick back with you, or at least make sure it's got no fingerprints.
Keep fighting!"
