According to an anonymous report on linksunten.indymedia.org,
during the night of November 8-9, a hunting tower was sabotaged near
Herzogenbuchsee (Bern). The wooden pillars were sawn through, dropping
the tower to the ground.
"In der Nacht von
Dienstag auf Mittwoch den 09. November 2016 wurde in der Nähe von
Herzogenbuchsee ein Jagdhochsitz sabotiert, indem wir die Holzpfeiler
zersägten und somit den Jagdhochsitz zu Fall gebracht haben. Die Aktion
richtet sich gegen die zur Zeit stattfindende Jagd, die nicht in erster
Linie – wie oft behauptet – der Regulation der Wildtierpopulation dient.
In der Jagd werden vor allem bestehende Machtverhältnisse manifestiert
und die Tötungslust der Jäger*innen befriedigt.
unzählige Wildtiere, unter anderem Rehe, Hirsche oder Wildschweine von
Jäger*innen erschossen und zu Waren wie Pelze und Fleisch sowie
Statussymbolen wie Trophäen verarbeitet. Diese Praxis dient einerseits
der Befriedigung von Unterdrückungsbedürfnissen - dem Töten und somit
dem unmittelbaren Ausüben von Macht – andererseits dem Kapitalismus,
indem Lebewesen zu gewinnbringenden Produkten herabgesetzt werden.
Jäger*innen sowie deren Unterstützer*innen berufen sich bei der
Legitimation der Jagd oft auf die Aufgabe der Populationsregulierung,
welche die Natur nicht selbst übernehmen könne. Zahlreiche jagdfreie
Gebiete zeigen jedoch auf, dass die Natur diese Aufgabe erfolgreich
selbst übernehmen kann. Anders als die Jagdindustrie behauptet, hat die
Jagdpraxis eigentlich sehr negative Konsequenzen auf die
Wildtierpopulationen, da beispielsweise die Sozialstrukturen durch das
Töten massiv gestört werden. Dies drückt sich unter anderem in einem
veränderten Reproduktionsverhalten aus.
Jagdhochsitze werden bei der Jagd der Tiere insbesondere in der
Nacht verwendet, um die Sicht auf die Tiere zu erleichtern. Mit der
Sabotage eines solchen Jagdhochsitz wollen wir uns dieser Tötungs- und
Unterdrückungsmaschinerie in den Weg stellen und ein klares Zeichen
gegen die Jagd setzen! Die Aktion soll dazu ermutigen, weitere Pfeiler
der Jagdindustrie zu sabotieren – führen wir allen Unterdrückenden
dieser Welt Schaden zu und bringen die Herrschaftssysteme zum Fall!
Gegen jegliche Unterdrückung und Ausbeutung! Until all are free!
Lasst es krachen lasst es knallen – Jäger*innen in den Rücken fallen!"

DHL OFFICE IN
BASEL COVERED IN PAINT
"Last week, a local dhl Office was attacked with
spraypaint and red paint: 'STOP VIVISECTION'.
THE WAR HAS BEGUN!
DHL is the new main focus of the GATEWAY TO HELL CAMPAIGN to stop
Airlines transporting nonhuman animals to their deaths in laboratories.
Gateway to Hell]
ABX Air, a subsidiary of the Air Transport Services
Group, is the only known air cargo carrier that is transporting primates
from China and South East Asia to research laboratories in the USA. So
far this year ABX Air are known to have transported thousands of
innocent animals to their deaths, and despite a significant campaign
against them they refuse to change their policy to transport these
ABX Air claim to have contractual obligations with
certain laboratories to continue transporting these animals for the next
two years and they have repeatedly stated that they have no intention of
ending their involvement in this cruel trade.
However, transporting research primates is only a small
part of ABX Air's business so in order to stop them we will need to
extend the campaign to focus on other areas of their business in order
to stop these primate flights.
ABX Air's main business is transporting cargo for DHL,
the major international cargo company, and more than half of ABX Air's
aircraft are painted with DHL's colours. Gateway To Hell have been in
contact with DHL, and in turn DHL have complained to ABX Air about their
involvement in the transport of research animals but unfortunately this
still hasn�t stopped ABX Air�s animal transports, despite vague
assurances that they will consider a policy change at their next
We simply cannot accept that ABX Air and other
subsidiaries from the Air Transport Transport Group continue to
transport these animals to their deaths in cruel and needless
experiments, so for this reason we will be holding DHL directly
accountable for every innocent animal transported by ABX Air.
DHL has the power to stop ABX Air's animal transports,
considering they are responsible for over half of all of ABX Air's
business, so we are demanding that DHL either use their influence to
force ABX Air to cease these animal transports or that they end their
working relationship with ABX Air.
Until our demands are met, DHL will be the main
focus of the campaign to end ABX Air's animal transports!"

GMO FIELD ATTACKED
Switzerland (rough translation):
During the night of June 23-24, an experimental field of
GM crops was attacked with herbicides with the aim of killing the plants
and preventing research into genetically modified organisms. The
activists explained, "Opposition to genetic engineering is part of a
wider opposition to the total control of society and life that is being
created thanks to the development of nano and biotechnology. For these
reasons, we also want to express our solidarity through concrete actions
with those who oppose this capitalist system and technoscience, and in
particular with Marco Camenisch,
Costa and Billy, revolutionary prisoners who are now jailed in
Switzerland because they understood that words are not enough and that
action is needed to create radical change, even if this means risking
their own freedom."

PRISONERS: COSTA, SILVIA AND BILLY
Costantino Ragusa, Silvia Guerini and Billy (Luca
Bernasconi) were arrested in Switzerland on April 15. They are accused
of planning to attack an IBM nanotechnology/biotechnology research
facility near Zurich. All three are vegan.
Statement of international solidarity:
"On the 15th of April Costantino, Silvia and Billy were
arrested in Switzerland under the charge of transport of explosive
material and of having tried to use it.
We affirm our absolute solidarity with them. Their
identity and their struggle is the identity and struggle of all
revolutionaries, because they fought with passion, persistency and
absolute will against the state and capitalism, who has produced wars,
death, environmental destruction, exploitation, surpression and profit
for those in power. And the control and bio- and nanotechnological
development are some of the instruments in the hands of those in power,
to preserve these circumstances.
There are three kinds of people: those who stand at the
window and follow what happens; those who stand at the window and
comment on what happens; and then there are those, who make the things
in front of the window happen.
These people - who have understood the
necessity to become active to free themselves from the chains of this
society � are the irreplaceable ones and we stand on their side.
Solidarity is our weapon!
Solidarity with Costa, Silvia and Billy!
Solidarity with all political prisoners!

RESPONSIBILITY FOR GRAVEYARD VISIT

The first grave was rearranged as a warning for his
