Birmingham, UK: A few months ago we slashed the tyres of every single
meat truck at Pak Mecca slaughterhouse in Digbeth. Last night we did the
same at A J Meats slaughterhouse. We slashed the tyres of the meat trucks
with a hardware-store braddle, and put a brick through one of their
windscreens. Above ground, the animal rights movement in Birmingham (UK)
is gaining momentum – with constant outreach, slaughterhouse 'vigils',
and demonstrations. Although we personally choose not to take part in
these things, we think that it will take a variety of tactics to bring
down the animal industries, and respect whatever tactic others choose, as
they should respect ours. In capitalism, choice is an illusion – we
cannot rely only on convincing the public to go vegan. All of us are
conditioned and brainwashed not to challenge the hold the animal
industries have on us. So we take the fight to the supply chain and take
direct action. Don't let that term be watered down – Direct Action means
stepping in the way of the machine – in this case, stopping the dead
bodies of animals being driven to butcher shops and supermarkets, the
morning after they are murdered. If enough economic damage is caused to
businesses like this over time, there will be no tortured bodies on the
shelves for people to so flippantly and pointlessly consume. This is
what we choose to do – bursts of love and anger in the middle of the
night, causing economic damage to the mass murderers. If the trucks
coming in and out of these hell-holes were filled with crying humans,
then everyone would be up at night smashing them up. Every animal is an
individual, and does not have to die to feed us. In this sense, there is
no difference between 'them' and 'us'. We encourage and we incite
everyone who has ever thought of using these tactics, who has idolised
the ALF of the 80s and 90s but thought that it was a thing of the past,
to consider it, to plan it and carry it out – to physically attack one of
the many targets in Birmingham and anywhere else. Damage to property is
not 'violence'. As we carry the ALF torch forward, we pledge never to
hurt a living being, human or otherwise. If not you, who? If not now,

Prior to sentencing,
Debbie said: "What is scary in this world is oppression and injustice, when
people hurt people, animals and nature. What is beautiful in this world is
resistance, when people say 'enough is enough' and act. Oppression and
injustice are everywhere, but so is resistance. Because some people know
that if you fight you might lose, but if you don't fight, you've already

"On Christmas Eve, ALF Plymouth & SD joined

It is not known where the mice in this facility

trampling over their dead and decomposing brethren.

successfully rescue 18 mice before making a hasty exit.
During the evening of Christmas day, we are saddened to learn that 3 of

"ALF targeted a pheasant shooting estate at
the beginning of December. 55 feeding stations were destroyed. A pheasant
pen over 200 sqm was completely put down. Aniseed and feed trails were
traced towards the outside of the shooting estate to attract the birds to
safety. The cabins were spray painted to ensure the owners got the message.
Reports after the attack confirm that the birds have moved positively
outside of the game areas. We know the gamekeepers will really struggle this
holidays, knowing that they charge 1000 pounds per gun/day and there are no
birds to shoot.
We would like to show our respect to our comrades at
Hunt Saboteurs Association, whom have seen some horrible killings of foxes
lately and have been ignored, once again, by the 'authorities'.

is lifted. Until every animal is free. ALF."
