have been killed after they are no longer profitable or because they do not
meet the grade for racing.

January 18, 2013 - GAVIN MEDD-HALL RELEASED
On October 25, 2010, six animal rights activists (Alfie Fitzpatrick, Tom Harris, Jason Mullen, Nicola Tapping, Nicole Vosper, Sarah Whitehead) were sentenced for their involvement in the Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) campaign. The activists had pleaded guilty to either "conspiring to interfere with the contractual relations of an animal research organization," or "conspiracy to blackmail" companies linked to the notorious animal testing lab, Huntingdon Life Sciences.
Seven other activists (Dan Amos, Gregg Avery, Natasha Avery, Gavin Medd-Hall, Heather Nicholson, Gerrah Selby, Dan Wadham) were jailed in January 2009 following their convictions on similar charges.
The purely political prosecutions and harsh and unjust sentences are an attempt by the British government to crush dissent and to stop anyone from speaking out against vivisection.
After serving 2 years in prison, Dan was released in July 2010.
Gregg was released in October 2011 after completing his 9 year sentence.
Natasha was released in October 2011 after completing her 9 year sentence.
Sentence: 1 year suspended sentence
Sentence: 5 years
In January 2011, one year was added to Tom's original 4 year sentence after he was found guilty of involvement in vandalism at companies linked to Huntingdon Life Sciences in 2008.
Gavin was released in January 2013 after serving 4 years of his 8 year sentence.
Jason was released in October 2011 after completing his 3 year sentence.

Sarah was released from prison in June 2012 after completing her 6 year sentence.
January 12, 2013 - ALF/ELF SABOTAGE ROAD CONSTRUCTION
"Combe Haven. 7th-8th January 2013.
Acting in solidarity with the campaign against the Bexhill-Hastings link road, activists sabotaged contractors attempts to force local wildlife to migrate away from the site of the proposed road.
Wire mesh and wooden doors covered all but one entrance to each badger sett in the area, in an attempt to encourage the badgers to move into human-built setts prior to mating season. The mesh and doors surrounding the badger setts have since been dismantled to encourage the badgers to stay in their habitat of choice.
Newt-nets have also been set up by contractors with the same goal in mind, plastic sheeting staked along the route of the road a foot below and above ground, forcing newts, insects and other small animals out of the area. Thus these nets have also been attacked, torn out of the ground and smashed.
Not only do these actions allow wild creatures to exist where they choose, but slows the build of the road, as the contractors attempt to greenwash their mindless destruction of animal habitats and local natural environments by 'sparing the animal's lives' in this manner and cannot proceed with the road building until they say they are certain that the local wildlife has migrated away from the site of ecological destruction.
After witnessing the surveyors dismay upon noticing the trashed nets, these acts of sabotage will only continue and increase in their severity until those who choose convenience and profit over life have suffered at least equally in their fight for the absolute control and destruction of the natural world.
January 2, 2013 - AGAINST PRISONS, AGAINST ZOOS
anonymous report, from Indymedia UK:
"We started 2013 as we mean to carry on, with an attack on the front entrance building of Bristol Zoo. All the glass front doors and windows were smashed. The building and 'Bristol Zoo' lettering was attacked with paint bombs as well as a paint bomb inside the building. 'Liberate' was sprayed across the front.
Zoos put themselves forward as champions of conservation but the reality is very different. Their 'conservation' is part of the same arrogant hypocritical mindset that places humans separate and above all other living things, and aims for domination and subjugation of nature. Wild creatures are hunted, some to extinction, exploited, and their habitats wrecked. The ones that are lucky enough to be 'saved' are put in cages and this is presented as somehow protecting and helping them.
Zoos are upheld as bastions of education. We can know all we need to know about this or that creature except how to show them basic respect. What it's really about is teaching people that non-human animals are there for our entertainment, and that the entire non-human world exists only for our use. People's need to see and experience something wild is very marketable and exploitable. Behind all the rhetoric and reinvention of zoos lies the cruel reality as always of money and profit by all means necessary. Once we see through their carefully constructed image there is no defence such institutions of slavery can employ against our reasons to attack them.
In the zoo, people get used to the necessity and desirability of cages. Once free animals, pacing their cages and staring vacantly at the bars are a sad reflection of our own captivity.
With this small but successful act we draw a line in the sand between us and the dominator of every creature including ourselves.
On New Years Eve there is a tradition around the world of taking action against the prison system and showing solidarity with prisoners. We continue and extend this tradition in the spirit of total liberation for human and non-human animals alike. We also have not forgotten or forgiven the violence used by the police against demonstrators outside Horfield prison last new years eve.
We will keep hitting them where and when they don't expect it - They can never be everywhere and we will never accept captivity or imprisonment of any sort. We dedicate this action to anarchist prisoners Marco Camenisch, Cristobal Franke 'Mono' and Osman Evcan."
