November 17, 2013 - MCDONALD'S, KFC SABOTAGED

reported anonymously:

"Four toilets were sabotaged at McDonald's and KFC restaurants in the Midwest. In each restaurant, the back cover to the toilet was removed, and the flushing apparatus was broken off by hand. They will now need a plumber to repair the toilets. This only took seconds and required no tools. We hope the repair costs are high.

November 16, 2013 - MINK OIL TAMPERING CLAIM

reported by the North American Animal Liberation Press Office:

"In a well coordinated action during the second week of November, 263 jars of Kiwi mink oil sold in chain drug and big box stores were tampered with across the United States. Fortunately for us, Kiwi does not use tamper proof seals. Each jar was opened and a small amount of cyanic acid added. They were then placed back on the shelves in Wal-Mart, CVS, Walgreens, and other stores.

Mink oil is a leather care byproduct of one of the most cruel industries on this planet. Mink on fur farms are crowded often six to a cage for life awaiting a violent death in the pelting season, which comes in one of two ways, neck breaking or gassing with a lethal dose of carbon monoxide.

Those who use this product will not die like the animals caged on fur farms. The cyanic acid will cause a severe burn and eat through the leather products it is applied to.

Kiwi's involvement with the fur trade will no longer be tolerated."


November 15, 2013 - COLORADO MINK FARM RAIDED

received anonymously:

"On the night of November 14th, the Earth Liberation Front visited the previously unknown Colorado mink farm of Monte Ages, located at 622 Valley View Drive in Moffat County. This is one of the smallest mink farms in operation, so opening nearly every cage took very little time. The mink understood our mission and quite literally flew to the ground to make a dash for freedom. To cause the deranged Mr. Ages more financial trouble, breeding cards were removed and strewn about, and thrown in the piles of mink waste.

Michael Whelan will offer the same tired lies in response to this action. He advises farmers to 'sympathize with the poor, lost animals.' The lost wild animals who are now able to move freely, who will no longer be subject to Michael and his friends preferred methods of execution in the pelting season just two weeks away.

The truth is that mink are not domesticated. They are captive bred, and only for the quality of their pelts. Mink are aquatic animals who are solitary in the wild and travel several miles per day. The surrounding area of Moffat County is pristine wildlife habitat. The ones who escaped this wildlife prison will now live out their lives along the Little Snake and Yampa Rivers.

Mr. Ages has plans to move and expand his operation to 35591 North Hwy 13 in the town of Craig. This will not be tolerated. Your dreams of despoiling Northwest Colorado, contaminating our drinking water, and exploiting native american wildlife will turn into a nightmare. There will be consequences when darkness falls.

We send a salute to those courageous few who continue to fight alongside the earth and animals, even as your work is overshadowed by the bloggers, video editors, and all manner of self-aggrandizing activists."

September 30, 2013 - ALF TARGET OHIO MINK FARM

anonymous report:

"9/29/2013

150-300 mink released from cages and dozens of breeding cards destroyed at
the massive mink farm owned by Lion Farms, 2707 Hoaglin Road in Van Wert,
Ohio. This facility confines tens of thousands of animals, making it one of the largest mink farms in the United States. Time constraints prevented us from doing more.

Mink are wild animals native to North America. The fur industry's lies are transparent. Mink are fiercely territorial carnivores and will have no problem hunting and surviving in the wild. Any wildlife biologist knows this.

September 26, 2013 -  MINK ESCAPE AFTER HUNDREDS OF CAGES OPENED AT FUR FARM

received anonymously:

"Last night, the Animal Liberation Front opened hundreds of cages at the
Rykola mink farm located at 557 Colver Road in Ebensburg, Pennsylvania.
We lost count of the number of wild animals freed into their natural
environment, due to the animals being housed in atrocious conditions, four
to tiny cob-webbed cages. Words can not describe the filth and blinding
stench of this farm.

As expected, the animals wasted no time escaping from their barren prisons
into the natural world.

In addition to opening cages, we destroyed hundreds of breeding cards,
many with notations of price, which ran from $1,000 up to $10,000 per
animal.

We want to reiterate, as several recent ALF communiques have, the ease of
animal liberation. We possess no specialized skill set or expensive
tools. A sense of determination and a desire for justice go a long way.

Pelting season is just weeks away. Look up The Final Nail and find a farm
near you. Let the final stage of Operation Bite Back commence. We can
destroy this industry that has destroyed so many."


September 18, 2013 - MINK FREED FROM UTAH FUR FARM

In the early hours of September 13, 20 mink were freed from cages and breeding records destroyed at a fur farm in Summit County, Utah. The raid may have been interrupted by the arrival of a feed delivery truck.

September 9, 2013 - ENTRANCE TO FUR STORAGE COMPANY COVERED IN RED PAINT

anonymous report:

"In solidarity with the recent acts of sabotage and liberation targeting
the fur industry in Ontario, the Bay Area, and the Midwest we targeted
LeatherCare inc of Oregon. This company specializes in providing
maintenance services for fur and leather garments, and along with their
parent company Prestige Cleaners, they operate a fur storage facility in
Seattle. On Sunday night, the entrance of their retail outlet located at
6303 SE Powell Blvd in Portland was left drenched in red paint to
represent the blood of the millions of mink, fox, lynx and bobcats
imprisoned on fur farms and murdered for fashion and vanity. For years
this company has facilitated and profited from the obscenity that is the
fur trade unabated, hopefully this will be a reminder of the blood on
their hands.

Many have argued that these small acts of property destruction are
ineffective and futile. We contend, however, that these acts can serve as
a starting point for individuals to build confidence and experience acting
outside the law for animals. These acts have also served as a catalyst to
inspire others into action--as demonstrated by the recent rise in
underground activity in North America.

September 5, 2013 - ANOTHER FUR FARM HIT

At least 100 mink were freed from cages at a fur farm in Keota, Iowa early on August 30. According to a police spokesperson (as reported on Animal Liberation Frontline), "It looked like someone had opened the lids on the cages and let them run out."

August 30, 2013 - FUR AUCTION HOUSE EXECUTIVE'S HOME ATTACKED

anonymous report:

"Around 7:00am on August 26, a cell of the Animal Liberation Front entered
the back yard of Brian L. MacMillan, 1245 Mockingbird Lane in Sun Prairie,
Wisconsin. Brian is the Vice President of Wild Fur Operations at North
American Fur Auctions, the largest fur auction house in North America.
Brian is a terrorist who deals in the skins of wild animals tortured and
killed in steel-jaw leghold traps. The counter-terrorists of the Animal
Liberation Front broke his double paned window, and inserted his own
garden hose; completely flooding his home.

Most people would be amazed at the sight of a bobcat, a creature so
majestic and free. Brian's empty heart sees only profit.

There is no doubt Brian and NAFA will attempt to portray themselves as
victims. They have the audacity to call us terrorists, when every penny
they have made is at the torture and subjugation of what is wild and free.
All who contribute to industries of earth and animal destruction shall
take note. There is a higher law.

August 28, 2013 - 2000 MINK RELEASED FROM CAGES

According to a local newspaper, 2000 mink were released from cages at the East Fork Mink Ranch (1875 Nelson Road) in Morris, Illinois early on August 14. In addition, paint stripper was poured on two trucks, and "Liberation is love" was painted on a barn


August 26, 2013 - SLAUGHTERHOUSE WRECKED, COWS RELEASED

"In the early morning of August 26th two ALF members traveled three hours to a small town called North Branch, MI to vandalize and liberate a family slaughterhouse called 'Mcnee's Meats' -years prior the beef they sold was even tested positive for E. Coli. One member glued the ignition to the transport truck and the lock to the front door as well as sprayed painted 'Meat is Murder' on the front of the building. The other member freed fifteen enslaved cows from being slaughtered, broke the lighting fixtures, and smashed holding cages for chickens (cows being the only animals present)."


August 24, 2013 - FUR SHOP VANDALIZED

anonymous report, from Indybay:

"Last week, a lone volunteer with the Animal Liberation Front paid a visit to B.B. Hawk Fur and Leather at 25 Division Street in San Francisco. A window was destroyed with glass etching cream. A police car drove by at slow speed so an exit was made before more damage could be done.

Two nights later, a return visit was made, and the etched window had not been replaced. This time, the window adjacent to it was shattered.

The horror of the fur industry speaks for itself. Fur is skin torn from a wild animal that was trapped or confined in a tiny space for the entirety of their life.

[Press Office note: Imprisoned in cages for life, or mercilessly trapped with painful leghold traps in the wild,  fur-bearing animals killed to make unnecessary fashion statements are forced to endure intensive confinement, compared to the miles of territory these still-wild animals would enjoy in their natural state. The natural instincts of these captive animals are completely frustrated; self-mutilation, sickness, infection, poor sanitation and the sheer stress of confinement lead animals in captivity to premature death. When they survive, animals of sufficient size are killed by anal electrocution or gassing, then skinned. In addition to liberating the wild animals destined for a certain, painful and agonizing death, another goal of liberationists is to cause economic damage to fur retailers and farms; dozens of stores and fur farming operations have seen economic ruin since "Operation Bite Back" began by the Animal Liberation Front in the 1990s.

The Animal Liberation Front utilizes economic sabotage in addition to the direct liberation of animals from conditions of abuse and imprisonment to halt needless animal suffering. By making it more expensive to trade in the lives of innocent, sentient beings, the ALF maintain the atrocities against our brothers and sisters are likely to occur in smaller

 


August 17, 2013 - BUTCHER HELD ACCOUNTABLE

anonymous report, from Indybay:

"This was our first action, inspired by the amazing work of animal
liberationists in Costa Mesa, Montana, Idaho, Portland, and elsewhere this
summer.

Around midnight on August 12, we held local animal abuser Dave Evans and
Marin Sun Farms accountable for the lives they've destroyed. We took
action on behalf of the thousands of pigs, cows, lambs, chickens, and
goats killed for profit by Marin Sun Farms. Hiding behind the language of
sustainability can never hide the violence and terror of the blade and
captive bolt gun. Animals are not biological machines designed to serve
those with class and species privilege.

First, we glued the locks on their new San Francisco meat processing
building, on Eighth and Bryant Street. We slashed all sixteen tires on the
four Marin Sun Farms vehicles parked out front. Our next stop was their
butcher shop in Oakland's Market Hall. We left the glass door slathered
with glass etching cream.

We hold no illusions that our action will cause Marin Sun Farms to retreat
and close up shop. Their violence is motivated by the huge profits they
reap. Their new processing facility is a three million dollar investment.

But we act to make their work just that much more difficult. We act to
show them that their speciesist violence will always be met with
resistance. And to show everyone out there who believes in justice that
their despair can be turned into action.

Love,
San Francisco Animal Liberationists"


August 16, 2013 - CAPTIVE BIRDS FREED FROM STATE WILDLIFE AREA

reported anonymously:

"On the night of August 15th the masked liberators of the Animal Liberation Front carried out the rescue of wild pheasants and quail from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife game bird exhibition pens at the EE Wilson wildlife area (north of Corvallis). Wire cutting tools were used to completely cut open 2 of the game bird pens and partially cut open 2 others giving 3 ringnecked pheasants, 1 white pheasant, and 1 mountain quail a chance to escape into the surrounding wildlife area. If it wasn't for a car pulling into a lot next the pens, forcing us to make a premature departure, the rest of the dozen or so birds would have been
given a chance at freedom as well. This action is no victory for those left behind.

The EE Wilson wildlife area was once home to an ODFW breeding program that
bred pheasants mainly to be released to repopulate state hunting grounds. The ODFW discontinued this program in the late 1990's, however they still keep a small number of birds on this site as a tourist attraction. It is sad and pathetic that these wild birds would have to spend their entire lives in a cage for any reason, let alone for something as trivial and frivolous as being put on display for the public.

There are over 100 registered captive wildlife facilities in the state of Oregon that imprison pheasants, quail, mink, elk and other wild animals. These facilities generally contain little to no security, require little to no specialized skill set to raid, and hold animals which in many cases can be directly liberated into the wild. All it takes is a little determination and a $15 pair of bolt cutters to make animal liberation a reality.

In solidarity with anarchist prisoners Marie Mason and Eric Mcdavid. For the silent ones and all those on the run.

For freedom and dignity,
Animal Liberation Front"

Two consecutive nights - both door locks at Yung Kee Restaurant were filled with superglue. This two story restaurant with on-site butcher proudly displays duck and chicken carcasses in their windows. Their hands are soaked with the blood of the countless animals murdered to continue their operation.

We are inspired by those fighting against the oppression of non-humyns in San Diego, Costa Mesa, and Portland. Continue with this momentum."


August 13, 2013 - BOBCAT FREED FROM DECREPIT FUR FARM

received anonymously:

"In the early morning hours of July 27, the Animal Liberation Front visited the
property of Shelli Frazier at 6934 Highway 200 in the town of Plains, Montana,
completely surrounded by the beautiful Lolo National Forest. Frazier applied in 2006 for a permit to imprison bobcats on her property in a fur farm that she hoped would eventually grow to sixty cats. Despite already making a living breeding horses, she perhaps felt that this could be a lucrative side business. We arrived at her unpublished address determined to correct her mistake, and watch her investments run free into the wilderness.

Exploration of the site revealed that the force of economics had already precluded any need for the force of boltcutters - strewn about this disgusting and decrepit property were large empty cages, the rusted remains of Shelli Frazier's dreams.

It was not until we checked every single run in an empty cat hutch tucked at the back of the northern lot that we found the tragic consequences of her business ineptitude. In one of the runs, huddling against the back wall, surrounded by rotting food, mildewed wood, and his own feces, was a lone bobcat.

The sight of a creature so majestic in a state so pathetic cannot be done justice
with words. We have yet been unable to determine why Frazier kept him and him alone, but if it was a sense of sentimentality, it certainly was not evident from his
treatment. Emaciated and filthy, his beauty was evident even through the matted fur and traumatized stare, with his bushy jowls and black ear tufts. To be in such proximity to this creature, staring into his haunting yellow eyes, changed every member of our cell. We could only speculate as to how he had suffered and what he had seen, but we could know with certainty that he deserved a shot at freedom. We opened his cage and left.

Shelli Frazier is not the only cruel human ever to keep such noble cats in tiny cages in Lolo National Forest. More than two decades ago, Rodney Coronado visited Cole MacPherson's bobcat prison in the town of Lolo just an hour's drive south of Plains. MacPherson's farm was Frazier's fantasy - a shed of sixty pacing, neurotic, traumatized large cats. Though he was forced to close shop around 2005, the ALF still keeps tabs on MacPherson - today, he continues his dental practice in Missoula. This should be a lesson to Frazier. If you ever again hold wild creatures captive on your land, we will breach it to free them.

Animal Liberation Front

Additionally, though we generally avoid airing internal issues in communications such as this, we felt that this small action, unlikely to attract media attention, would be appropriate to do so: As an ALF cell, we adhere strictly to the guidelines, including a policy of total nonviolence. Because of our desire not to be misrepresented to the media in this regard, we have in the past very clearly
requested that NAALPO not publicize or speak to the press about certain actions of ours. NAALPO has flagrantly disregarded our wishes in this regard. When a press office claiming to represent the ALF directly scoffs at the requests of the ALF, this should be a scandal within the animal rights movement. Those of us underground risk our freedom and sometimes lives rescuing animals; the least we can expect is a press office that is responsive to us. We regret having to hash this out here, but due to our anonymity we have no other recourse. We hope that NAALPO will respect our wishes in the future - it seems to us that its very legitimacy would hinge on this."

received anonymously:

"Iowans for Animal Liberation is taking responsibility for destroying the iconic Iowa State Fair 'Butter Cow' on the night of August 10th.

We hid inside the Agriculture Building and emerged after closing. After dismantling the lock to the refrigerated case housing the Butter Cow with a screwdriver, we doused the entire butter sculpture in red paint. The paint represents the blood of 11 billion animals murdered each year in slaughterhouses, egg farms, and dairies. We then left a painted message on the glass of the display: 'Freedom for all.'

We intend this action to serve as a wake up call to all who continue to consume meat, dairy, eggs, leather, and all animal products: You are directly supporting suffering and misery on the largest scale the world has ever known.

Each year, nearly 1 million people visit the Butter Cow, a life-sized cow sculpted out of butter. Let this action be a reminder that this attraction represents the suffering of billions of animals each year: animals stolen from their mothers on dairy farms, imprisoned in cramped cages on egg farms, ground up alive in hatcheries, and hoisted by their legs while their throats are slit in slaughterhouses. The Butter Cow is a symbol and celebration of this mass murder.

The Iowa State Fair has attempted to cover up this action from the media and fair-goers since it was discovered early Sunday. With this communique, we are submitting a link to a photo of the sabotaged Butter Cow, taken the night of the action.

If factory farmers continue to lie to the public that their farms are 'humane,' then they will be happy to accept our challenge:

August 5, 2013 - LOCKS GLUED, MESSAGE PAINTED AT RESTAURANT

anonymous report:

"Inspired by the recent actions in Portland and San Diego we decided to take action against Taco Asylum in Costa Mesa, CA. Taco Asylum serves rabbits, ducks, cows, and pigs in their dishes under the guise of 'free range', 'sustainable', and 'local' meat.

On the night of Sunday, July 28th we slipped into The Camp (a so called 'sustainable/green' shopping center) under the cover of darkness and glued the locks at Taco Asylum, located at 2937 S. Bristol St, B102 Costa Mesa, CA. We also spray painted the doors, patio, and entrance with red paint to represent the blood of the countless rabbits, ducks, pigs, chickens, and cows that they murder every year, leaving behind a message that read simply 'FREE THE ANIMALS' across their deck.

There is nothing 'sustainable' or 'green' in the business of animal agriculture, no matter how small and local the operation, and there is nothing compassionate or cruelty free about the murder of innocent animals. The rabbits that they serve come from Hidden Haven Farms, located at 18540 West Boundary Truck Trail Jamul, CA near San Diego. Maybe our unknown comrades in San can take this into account. This action was simple and took no more than a few minutes to complete. Actions like these and those that are on the rise in North America
can be taken by anyone with a little bit of planning and a few minutes of your night.

This action was taken in solidarity with all animal liberation and anarchist prisoners around the world.

July 30, 2013 - FIRST FUR FARM RAID OF THE SUMMER!

anonymous communique:

"On the evening of July 28, 2013, friends of wildlife entered the Burley, Idaho, mink farm of Fur Commission USA Board Member Cindy Moyle, compromised the perimeter fencing, and set up roving surveillance of the on-site night watchman. We then liberated the entirety of her breeding stock into the wild, emptying over twenty-five percent of this wildlife prison.

Illuminated in the moonlight, 2400 of these wild creatures climbed out of the cages where they had passed their entire lives in isolated darkness, to feel the grass under their feet for the first time. Their initial timidity quickly became a
cacophony of gleeful squealing, playing, cavorting, and swimming in the creek that runs directly behind the Moyle property. They will live out their new lives along the Snake River watershed.

Cindy Moyle is a current Board Member, and former Treasurer, of the Fur Commission USA. After the recent leadership shuffling in FCUSA, we felt that the Moyle Mink Ranch would be perfect to test out the efficacy of FCUSA's new emphasis on farm security.The Moyles are a mink dynasty in Idaho, operating up to eight farms, their own in-house feed operation, and a tannery. Those doubtful of our resourcefulness and guile have in the past called the Moyle farms impenetrable. Indeed, this is the first time that anyone has attempted action against one of them.

Having now had the pleasure of testing them ourselves, we wholeheartedly approve of the new FCUSA security guidelines. We are happy to see FCUSA members increasing their overhead on security - it means they are only that much closer to bankruptcy when we raid their farms. In the case of the Moyles, the breeding records we destroyed represent over thirty years of painstaking
genetic selection. There will be no recovering these genetic lines.

Aside from their operations harming helpless animals, the Moyles have also been federally investigated for exploiting undocumented workers and trafficking endangered species. Mike Moyle, ex-mink farmer and the current Idaho House Majority Leader, has used his political position to block Idaho neighborhoods from being able to declare his family's foul and fly- infested prisons to be public nuisances.

The fur industry will no doubt propagate falsehoods regarding this act of kindness.

They will claim that we are terrorists. We say that if peacefully opening cages is an act of terrorism, then the word has no meaning. It is appropriately applied to the mass imprisonment and killing of wild animals.

They will claim that these mink are domesticated animals and will starve. Documentation on the success of farm-bred mink in the wild is extensive, so we will add only our experience watching these naturally aquatic animals, who had spent their entire lives in cages, head instinctively for water and begin to swim and hunt.

They will claim that conditions on mink farms are humane. We ask why, then, they try only to hide those farms from the public, pushing for legislation to criminalize the taking of photographs. The mink that we freed from the Moyles lived in intensive confinement in their own waste. Their suffering was plain to the eye, and their yearning for freedom plain to the soul.

They will say that our raid may inspire copycat actions. We say that it undoubtedly will. It is a glorious thing that we live in a world where individuals regularly demonstrate the ultimate act of compassion - risking their freedom for the freedom of others.

They will say that we will not stop short of the complete and total end of the killing of animals for their fur. On this point we are in total agreement.

We act with love in our hearts."


July 27, 2013 - FARM RAIDED, PHEASANTS GIVEN CHANCE AT FREEDOM

received anonymously:

"On the night of July 22, the masked rescuers of the Animal Liberation Front entered the Ash Grove Pheasant Farm at 10540 Victoria Avenue in Riverside, California. As the farmer slept just feet away, the fencing was torn open with wire cutters. Four of the six pens on the property were breached, giving these beautiful beings a chance at freedom.

Wildlife farms are everywhere. Their victims can be immediately released, with no rehoming necessary. This life saving action took no specialized skill, less than twenty-four hours of planning, and fifty dollars. With basic tools and determination, anyone is capable of destroying the barrier that stands between an animal and their freedoms.

Stop fraternizing about it. Stop fantasizing about it. Stop frightening yourself out of it. You know you want to - just do it. Wild non-humyns await their release from prisons in your neighborhoods.

'For only a fool would cling to this world as it is,'

July 21, 2013 - ALF MAKE A MESS AT FUR STORE, HOMES OF STORE OWNER AND MANAGER

received anonymously:

"In the early morning hours of July 16, 2013, anarchists in San Diego took action on behalf of the millions of fur-bearing animals who are trapped, enslaved, and killed to sustain the global fur industry

We first visited Furs By Graf at 7670 Claremont Mesa Boulevard in the Claremont neighborhood. Every single piece of plate glass on this hideous enterprise was soaked in glass etching solution. The exterior of the store was covered in red spray painted slogans. Bottles of foul smelling butyric acid were sprayed into the interior, leaving this place of commerce smelling like death; identical to the odor present on every fur farm. We hope this is a costly clean up, and serves to drive away all patronage.

We then hiked to owner Ludi Graf's home, at 9589 Upland Street in Spring Valley. His home was given the same treatment. We paint stripped his luxury winnebago parked in the driveway. Slogans were painted in blood red on his garage and the winnebago. The windows of the winnebago were etched. The remainder of the etching solution was applied to the windows of his home. Concrete destroying muriatic acid was poured on his driveway.

It was another short hike to manager Kimberley Graf's home at 3674 Birdie Drive in La Mesa. Her luxury pickup truck was painted red and soaked in paint stripper. All windshields and windows on the truck were smeared with etching solution. We covered her house and driveway in spray paint. Muriatic acid was dumped on the porch.

These actions were taken to vocalize the cries of the millions of wild beings yearning for freedom. This is in vain unless it inspires others to liberate and sabotage. Every fur farm prisoner deserves a jail break.

In solidarity with our comrades fighting in Vancouver,
Animal Liberation Front"


July 18, 2013 - BUTCHER SHOP LOCKS GLUED

anonymous report:

"Last week, locks were glued at the Laurelhurst Market butcher shop located off E. Burnside. Your chic urban facade can not cover up the reality of the products you sell: ducks being force fed though tubes and baby cows being stolen from their mothers. This modest act should be a small reminder of the pain you cause.

We continue to be inspired by the spike in underground animal liberation activity here in PDX. The dream of the 90's is alive in Portland.

July 8, 2013 - MORE FROM PORTLAND: MEAT COMPANY TARGETED

anonymous report, from Portland Indymedia:

"Nicky USA Exotic Meats operates a slaughterhouse in Dallas, Oregon. They are responsible for the deaths of rabbits, quail, deer, elk, bison, and other animals. Jace Hentges works as their 'master butcher,' and murders these animals, day in, day out.

We glued the locks on their offices located at 223 SE 3rd Avenue three times in a very short period of time. This serves as a warning to their entire team. We will continue to fight you on every level. We will be sure to destroy every penny of profit you have made at the expense of wild nature. You never know when we could strike. We have been watching your offices and homes. We are for more clever than you could ever be.

With this action, we hope to awake a sleeping giant. This action is for those who plot and dream. This is for every anarchist who dreams of taking illegal action but has not yet. As the capitalists destroy everything beautiful in this world, and the vicious state engages in more torture and repression to protect them, we must continue to attack.

To show that these are not hollow words. Geoff Latham and Melody Latham, the President and Vice President, live at 2005 NE 75th Ave in Portland. Their home phone number is 503-251-1820. Kenneth Ulappa, Inventory Manager, lives at 5137 SE Division ST in Portland. His phone number is 503-238-7968. They take their work home with them - as evidenced by the Nicky USA trucks parked in both driveways. This is just a tiny fraction of the information we've acquired.

The only reason people like this sleep comfortably at night is because we let them.

July 6, 2013 - WINDOWS DESTROYED AT SEAFOOD COMPANY

anonymous report, from Portland Indymedia:

"June 2013

Ocean Crystal Seafood is in the business of exploiting and killing marine animals. They have two United States offices: one at 1351 Elwood Street in Los Angeles, and at 11960 SW Greenburg Road in Tigard, just outside of Portland.

We visited their Tigard office and cost them the only thing they live for, money. Two locks will need to be replaced, as well as the three windows we destroyed with copious amounts of glass etching fluid. We will not stand by quietly as all we love is destroyed by those we hate. For those in Portland in the business of ecological devastation and mass murder, get out or be forced out. To those who are inspired by our action, know that these actions can be carried out with ease and that the capitalists are incredibly vulnerable.

July 2, 2013 - FAST FOOD CHAINS TARGETED

reported anonymously:

"On the night of June 30th, three molotov cocktails where thrown at a Burger King location, in addition to two last week.
Though the fires from the molotovs failed to destroy the building, a valid act of direct defiance was still committed and deserves acknowledgement.
In addition, a window was broken out of a Popeye's fast food location the same night, following last weeks action in which the glass of the drive thru was smashed.
'Oppressor Be Warned (A)' was stickered to the front entrance.

May every monument to the murder of sentient beings be smashed and incinerated! It has only just begun!

-Chicago Veganarchist Wolf."


June 28, 2013 - PORTLAND TAXIDERMY SHOP GLUED

received anonymously:

"Over the last week, on two separate occasions, locks were glued at Artistic Taxidermy off Foster Blvd. This company sells the bodies and fur pelts of foxes, bears, bobcats, antelope, and other wild animals obtained through the horrific practices of sport hunting and trapping.
Animals caught in traps will often times suffer for days before they are finally discovered and killed. In some cases animals caught in leg hold traps will gnaw off their own leg to escape, only to later die from their injuries or to succumb to the elements. These atrocities are only compounded by the fact that their bodies are then displayed and sold as trinkets and vanity items.

These actions were inspired by the recent acts of property destruction targeting animal exploitation businesses here in the Portland Metro Area over the last few weeks.

June 18, 2013 - WINDOWS ETCHED, LOCKS GLUED AT HUNTING STORE

anonymous report, from Portland Indymedia:

"We attacked Archers Afield twice in a short period of time. They are in
the business of selling commodities made to maim and kill wild non-humyns,
and providing sport and "game" hunters with precision training courses. We
fully intend to drive them into bankruptcy.

Our first visit, we slashed several tires on their two "mobile archery
shop" trucks, destroyed three windows with glass etching cream, and filled
their door locks with epoxy.

This time around, we filled the truck locks and the store locks with
epoxy, and etched the glass doors and two windows.

For Jerry Koch and all non-cooperators,

Against all domination and hierarchy"


June 15, 2013 - LOCKS GLUED AT SHEEPSKIN STORE

anonymous report, from Portland Indymedia:

"Action taken for the anarchist prisoners

Locks glued shut at Sheepskin of Oregon on NW Glisan Street. This action
took only a few seconds. It was quiet, easily reproducible, and caused
financial loss to capitalists who profit off of misery and exploitation.

In solidarity with the grand jury resisters, In solidarity with Eric,
Marie, and the long-term anarchist prisoners."


June 7, 2013 - THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN DAMAGE AFTER MEAT COMPANY VANDALIZED

anonymous report, from Portland Indymedia:

"Portland's Pat Quality Meats damaged

In the spring of 2013, our small group trespassed onto the property of Pat's Quality Wholesale Meats in Portland, Oregon. Many tires were slashed and destroyed, multiple fuel tanks were filled with caustic substances, and locks were filled with liquid steel.

This is a company that profits off of the enslavement, torture, and murder of sentient beings. They do not even attempt to hide behind the hideous green capitalist pretenses of 'local,' or 'sustainable.' Only a might makes right worldview of bloodthirst and greed. The meat industry is an ecological disaster for which billions of animals suffer and die.

Our tears are not enough. Take action."


June 5, 2013 - SEAFOOD COMPANY TRUCKS SABOTAGED

anonymous report, from Portland Indymedia:

"Direct Action in Portland

May 2013,

Several trucks sabotaged at Portland's Ocean Beauty Seafood at 2450 NW 28th Avenue. Anonymous activists used knives to puncture tires and poured several ounces of vegan cane sugar into gas tanks. Daily, these trucks carry the corpses of once free creatures. There is nothing sustainable or justifiable in the exploitation of marine life. Some may criticize this action as un-strategic in the larger goal for a livable planet. But direct action is a necessity, and we have to start somewhere. Animal abuse and ecocide is not welcome in the Pacific Northwest.

With love and rage,

Some anonymous saboteurs"


June 3, 2013 - LOCKS GLUED AT STORE SELLING FUR FROM FARMED FOXES

anonymous report, from Portland Indymedia:

"Locks were super-glued four times in three weeks at Metro Body Piercing on Hawthorne Boulevard in Portland. This has no doubt cost them hundreds of dollars in repairs.

Metro, it's your choice. If you continue the sale of fox tails, expect more sabotage and an increase in intensity. We will not sit back and tolerate this exploitation of wildlife.

Foxes on fur farms are driven insane from the conditions. They are caged in their own filth. They pace neurotically and dream of the freedom just out of reach. We are their voice.

For the silent ones, For liberation. For the wild,

--Oregon Anti-Speciesists"


April 29, 2013 - WINDOWS SMASHED AT FAST FOOD RESTAURANT

anonymous report:

"Wednesday night the 24th the Church's Chicken off of 18th street in Chicago had its windows smashed. This is a continuance of the March direct actions which resulted in the windows being smashed at southside McDonalds, KFC, and Popeyes locations. Oppressors be warned: Its only just begun. This is class war and this is a war on those oppressing all sentient beings.

April 9, 2013 - 10 RABBITS LIBERATED FROM BREEDER

anonymous report:

"In the early morning hours of March 1, an attack took place in a breeders yard in Banning, California.

A total of 10 rabbits were liberated. Most the rabbits had overgrown claws, infections & other illnesses but w/ the help of some friends they will all survive.

Unfortunately we could only liberate 10 of the rabbits, but to make up to those left behind we destroyed cages, spray painted cars, the rabbit shed & the owners house. This action is dedicated to all my brothers & sisters globally fighting for justice day & night. As for the furry ones left behind, we will return.

As long as there are cages we will destroy them.
