Operation: 12 Days of Xmas '06

Day 12: Support Animal Liberation

Our third annual Operation: Twelve Days of Xmas is now coming to a close. For the past two years, we have closed the 12 Days with messages that we hope were inspiring and empowering, in support of the ALF, the Animal Liberation Front. In this new world order, where caring activists are sentenced to prison time for speaking out against injustice, it is hard to know where the line is anymore. Are we violating the AETA by saying that we support animal liberation? In the USA, the ALF is listed as the number one domestic terrorist threat. Does that make us guilty of being enemies of the State for supporting them? Could it be possible that in the 'land of the free and home of the brave', we must now be afraid to say that we support the ALF?

The ALF as well as other animal liberation organizations have operated across the USA for over 25 years. In that time, there has not been a single injury or death attributed to them or even tangential to their actions. Yet, our government, at every given opportunity, labels them as terrorists and elevates them to the same level as those who would wantonly and without remorse take human life. Not to mention the avaricious scumbags who kill countless billions of animals to satisfy their hunger, their greed and their self interest. Yet, we must now wonder, if we will be jailed for speaking out in support of the ALF.

Take a moment this holiday season to reflect on the billions of animals that are brutally killed for food, for clothing, for product testing and the billions that are living in abject misery to produce products for us or to entertain us. Then think about the ones that were liberated by the ALF. The ones that are living wild and free as they were meant to be or those that have been taken into loving caring homes where they will have the chance to live their lives in peace and comfort and treated with dignity.

Partial list of recent liberations from the Bite Back website:

* Hundreds of quails and pheasants released - USA - 12-20-06
* One thousand mink released - Sweden - 12-15-06
* Eleven beagles liberated from Harlan Labs - Germany - 12-13-06
* Twelve hens freed - Sweden - 12-6-06

* Fifty four wild boars released - UK - 11-13-06
* One hamster liberated from a pet shop - Ireland - 12-06

Each and every one of us has the power to take a stand against injustice. In this time of government repression, the animals need you now more than ever before. If we succumb to fear and intimidation, who will speak out for those who have no voice?

Our gift to you this holiday season is our pledge that we will never give up and never give in. We will stand firm and proudly support the Animal Liberation Front. Please join us and stand with us in solidarity. Take up the tool of your choice, be that your checkbook or a monkey wrench and use your chosen tool to right wrongs and to fight injustice wherever and whenever you see it. We have the power to take victory away from the animal enterprise lobby. Stand proud and strong, raise your chosen tool in your clenched fist and let them know that WE WILL NOT BE SILENCED.

In solidarity until all are free,
Win Animal Rights
