August 28, 2017 - MINK INSURRECTION



anonymous report:
"MINK INSURRECTION IN SMALAND
On the night between Saturday and Sunday, 26-27 August, thousands of minks got assistance in their escape from a prison, a minkfarm. 
A hundred something of them moved by getting transported directly to the forest, where they for the first time could feel solid ground beneath their paws. 
The rest got a helping hand as the cages were opened and they could charge out into the night. 
Unfortunately we didn't succeed in opening every last cage as we had to leave quite suddenly, but we will continue to work for the opening of all cages, and the closing of all farms. 
We will never give up. 
The owner of the fur farm locks up, exploits and kills these minks only to make money. 
The whole fur industry is driven by capitalist interests and we must all act in solidarity with the minks. 
Working against exploitation, capitalism and incarceration is best done through united struggle. 
The mink insurrection takes place during 'Week of solidarity with anarchist prisoners' and we send greetings over all fences, walls and borders. 
Until all are free! 
Animal Liberation Front 
(A)"


Swedish:
"MINKUPPROR I SMÅLAND Natten mellan lördag och söndag, 26-27 augusti, assisterades ett tusental minkar i sin flykt från ett fängelse, en minkfarm. 
Ett hundratal av dessa flyttade med hjälp av transportering direkt ut i skogen, där de för första gången kunde känna fast mark under tassarna. 
Resten av minkarna fick en hjälpande hand då burarna öppnades så att de kunde ta sig ut i natten. 
Vi lyckades tyvärr inte med målet att öppna alla burar eftersom vi blev tvugna att hastigt avlägsna oss från platsen, men vi kommer på olika sätt att fortsätta arbeta för öppnandet av alla burar och stängandet av alla farmer. 
Vi ger aldrig upp. 
Pälsfarmens ägare låser in, exploaterar och dödar de här minkarna enbart för att tjäna pengar. Hela pälsindustrin drivs av kapitalistiska intressen, och vi måste alla agera i solidaritet med minkarna.
Arbetet mot exploatering, kapitalism och inlåsning sker bäst genom enad kamp. 
Minkupproret äger rum under 'Week of solidarity with anarchist prisoners' och vi skickar en hälsning över alla stängsel, murar och gränser. 
Tills alla är fria!

February 28, 2017 - 60 CHICKENS LIBERATED FROM A FARM

anonymous report; click here for video from the action:

"*60 chickens liberated by Djurens Befrielsefront / ALF SWEDEN from a chicken farm in West Sweden. Now they will get love and live in freedom for the rest of their life. *

*Chickens are arguably the most abused animals on the planet. Billions of chickens are killed for their flesh each year. The vast majority of these animals spend their lives in total confinement--from the moment they hatch until the day they are killed.*

*At the slaughterhouse, their legs are forced into shackles, their throats are cut, and they're immersed in scalding-hot water to remove their feathers. Because they have no federal legal protection almost all chickens are still conscious when their throats are cut, and many are literally scalded to death in the feather-removal tanks after missing the throat cutter.*

*We will update soon about the liberated chickens new life in freedom.*

*The ALF Sweden will keep fighting for the animals, no matter what.*

*For the animals.*

*Djurens Befrielsefront / Animal Liberation Front Sweden*"

August 8, 2015 - OPEN RESCUE OF TWO PIGS

August 4 press release from Tomma burar (Empty Cages):

"Tonight four activists from the direct action group Empty Cages went into a pig farm in the middle of Sweden and rescued two pigs, Selma and Louise, from a certain death. The activists left behind a signed letter and some cookies. Afterwards they drove the pigs to a loving home and notified the police about the action.

Tonight's action is the first open rescue of pigs in Sweden. An open rescue means that the activists are open with their identities, their actions and their motives.

- As long as it's a crime to save the life of two death sentenced pigs we have a moral obligation to break the law. It's an ethical disaster that we view animals as resources when they, just like us, are sentient individuals, says Sara Andersson, 28, from Västerås, who participated in the rescue.

Today Selma and Louise will grub in soil for the first time. They won't have to scratch their snouts against a concrete floor and will be able to live a life without exploitation until they die from natural causes.

I think that most people don't really want to eat animals. It's just something we've been taught, says Martin Smedjeback, 42, from Haninge.

When the activists were inside the pig farm they wore protective overalls to minimize the risk of contamination, and in the letter to the farm owner they explained that the rescue is not directed towards a single individual. During the month of August Empty Cages will continue to bring awareness to the exploitation and killing of other animals in different ways."
