THE OFFICIAL ANIMAL RIGHTS MARCH – DATES RELEASED!

Surge‘s Official Animal Rights March dates have been released.

In the past, this march has shown the intent to grow to be a landmark in the animal liberation movement. With the obvious growth in animal rights activists, London’s march will most likely double in size in comparison to last year’s. 

There are also official dates for Berlin and Copenhagen so there are plenty of choices to be able to make it.

Check the events for the different cities marches down below:

Save the date and spread the word. Let’s make this BIG!

USA CONSULATE TARGETED WITH PAINT GRENADES AND NOISE BOMBS. 

18th January, Spain.

anonymous report:

“Under the ‘CALL FOR WORLDWIDE SOLIDARITY WITH THE J20 DEFENDANTS’, an autonomous group of anarchists decided to take action against the so-called ‘United States of America’ consulate.

We set off in the early morning with bags full of Christmas balls filled up with paint. On arrival, we redecorated the consulate with black, red and green all over the building.

Taking advantage of the many banks around the consulate, we allowed three noise bombs to explode causing the alarms to go off and aiding our voices of rage and solidarity to be heard even further in the middle of the night.

This murdering system is rotten and we stand in solidarity with our compañeros against Trump and the democratic system we are forced to live in.

This is just the beginning, our anger can only increase, our fight against the state and the system will prevail until all political class and upper class drown in it.

Drop the charges against our comrades at J20.

Be warned.

some anarchists.”

TWO NATIVE WOMEN ARRESTED AFTER BLOCKADING THE “DEPARTMENT OF FISHERIES AND OCEANS”.

Tsastilqualus Ambers Umbas and Shawna Green were arrested on the 18th of January after refusing to leave the DFO, situated on an increased indigenous territory.

The action was done in solidarity with the many indigenous people fighting the salmon farming in their land, that not only creates a culture of cruelty but also represents a ticking biological bomb for the ecosystem around it and a huge danger for the wild Pacific salmon which is legally supposed to be protected.

SOLIDARITY WITH OUR INDIGENOUS COMRADES AND IN DEFENCE OF THE EARTH AND THE ANIMALS!

LIBERATION.

WILD BOAR HUNT SABOTAGED

21st January, Castellón

Activists from Castellón Animal Save and OVIA Castellón decided to sabotage an announced wild boar hunt in the neighbouring town of Borriol.

“We arrived at 6am and invaded all public footpaths where the hunt was supposed to take place. Armed with pots and pans we started a concert alerting the animals to the risks of hunters in the area and letting the hunters know we weren’t going anywhere. Cops were nowhere to be seen and the hunters only came out once to check us out. No shots were heard but we saw a whole herd of wild boar!

On our way back to the cars, filled with a feeling of victory, we saw a hunter coming out of the woods, looking at us as if to let us know that he hadn’t enjoyed the concert. Great sab without any major incidents!”

LONG RUN THE WILD!!!!!!!

HUNTERS’ CARS VANDALISED, TYRES SLASHED, HUNT SUPPORTING BUSINESS TARGETED. 

21st January, Spain
anonymous report:
“Spain seems to have no shame. Yesterday I heard of an organised hunt that was being publicised openly in a town over the public megaphones. The lack of organised hunt saboteurs brought me to the realisation that the hunt needed to be stopped differently.

I arrived at their meet and waited for all cars to be parked and emptied, leaving only the dogs inside whilst the hunters drunk coffee and alcohol in the bar. I approached the building to glue the locks with some hair clips and superglue. The owner won’t be too happy when they try to close the place up! Maybe that makes them think about hosting hunters at their place again.

I then deflated the tyres of three cars. The other two had protection so they had the luck to be slashed instead! After I was sure that cars would not be moving anywhere in the morning, some of the car windows were destroyed with a rock. Wondering about the noise and the dogs barking some of the hunters came out, so I had to flee leaving the job half done.

Next time, they won’t have a single window standing.

Stop the hunt. Stop the killing.

Sabotage”

 

LIBERATE OR DIE: FROM CAGE TO FREEDOM

INTERNATIONAL CALL!

JOIN US FOR A WEEK OF ANTISPECIESIST ACTION, WORKSHOPS AND SKILLSHARING.

15th – 20th March, 2018

We’ve been missing a real activist-run, animal-rights-based, radical
action camp, so we decided to make our own. In the Heart of the
Hambacher Forest, a landmark of anti-capitalist and climate justice
resistance, we will be hosting our first antispeciesist event.

THE LIST OF WORKSHOPS WILL BE UPDATED AS WE GET MORE SPEAKERS CONFIRMED

THIS EVENT IS FREE. With our concept of Anti-Capitalism, we do not
believe people should have to pay to learn, share knowledge and take
part in actions. Donations are well received as the occupation can
always do with some funds, but they are not necessary! (We have been
told they really like chocolate, hint hint!)

THIS EVENT IS VEGAN. We would like the space to be vegan and the
participants should be able to respect it. We dumpster dive most of our
food and although the forest has a divide between freegan and vegan
diets, the Antispeciesist Space will remain fully vegan.

THIS EVENT IS ACTIVIST RUN. We are all crew. We all take turns to wash
up dishes and to cook dinner, we all collect firewood and build a fire!
From each according to their need to each according to their ability, do
not be shy to help out!

THIS IS AN ACTION EVENT. On our first day, we would like to discuss
different actions that could take place during the week. Depending on
the skill level and legal comfort we will make a decision to take action
one way or another. Bring ideas and listen to the group, we are sure
that whatever is decided will be a wonderful action!

THIS EVENT IS BASED AT THE HEART OF A COMMUNITY. We will be sharing the
forest with others and many have lived there to protect the trees for
years. Some are VERY camera shy. Taking photos of the occupation is
wonderful, but DO NOT take photos of activists without express
permission. The same way, phones aren’t very welcomed in plenaries and
workshops. Trust us, you’ll feel a massive relieve not carrying it
around at all times!

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
You should firstly bring yourself. Call in sick at work and avoid going
to uni, what’s best; being a wage slave or fighting for the animals?
There is a list of things you could bring with you but if you don’t have
something specifically DO NOT WORRY, we will find a way.

– Sleeping bag and mattress
– Tent (it would be good to bring them depending on how many we are!)
– Rage
– Head torch
– Love
– Warm clothes
– Boots
– Hugs (but please ask first before sharing them!)

HOW DO I GET THERE?
If you are coming from outside of Germany, Cologne has great bus
connections! Check FlixBus and get yourself here! From Cologne, you will
need to grab the train line “S-Bahn” to BUIR. S12 to Duren will work,
but google map it if you’re lost!
Once you arrive at Buir’s train station, go down the stairs and turn
left. Keep walking over the motorway bridge and another 200m until you
arrive at a junction signalling left towards Morschenich. Take the left
and carry on walking straight until you see an airfield to your right.
Then use the sand road to arrive at The Meadow and say hi!

WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE?
Come whenever, come for the event, come before and stay for years or
come for the weekend. It is up to you!

IS IT REALLY FOR FREE?
Yes. Food, smiles and a place to sleep, all for free. Fuck capitalism
big time. We are here to change the world, not to become part of the
system.

//

DISCLAIMER: This is an ANARCHO-VEGAN event. Nazis, right-wingers,
sexists, transphobes and any other form of oppressive bigot needs to
abstain themselves from attending. Also cops not welcome but we know
you’ll be there, won’t you?

DISCLAIMER 2: Many people in the forest have “forest names”. You can
rename yourself too if that makes you happy! We also don’t tend to ask
for real names, ages, place of origin and all that stuff. Also, we don’t
usually have IDs in the forest. Up to you to consider your own security,
of course.

HAMBACHER FOREST UPDATE!

COPS ARE INSIDE OF THE FOREST. They have decided to enter to clear the barricades. Multiple people are being arrested, The Meadow has been cordoned out and there are activists in tripods and monopods all over the place.

An activist has been found 5 meters deep underground chained up to a lock on.

This is your time to act. Wherever you are in the world, find an RWE target and cover it with paint, sabotage it, attack it in any way. If you are in Germany, hang an activist from a motorway bridge so climbing cops have to be diverted from the forest.

WE ARE ALL RESISTANCE.

HAMBI BLEIBT!!!!

HAMBACHER FOREST UPDATE!

The barricade eviction is underway. The police violence is increasing by the minute, almost all tripods and monopods have been evicted.

The arrestee tally goes up to 15 as of right now, but it will increase. There are random police controls around the forest where people have to undress. Someone came out of a search with injured ribs.

Meanwhile, the hole is still occupied by someone, although a generator and lights have been brought so it seems that the cops are going to dig for a lil while tonight.

We need people to be fighting in every corner of the world right now. Show the system that you do not agree with the massacre that the world will endure if we lose our trees and animals. FIGHT BACK.

NO COMPROMISE ON DEFENCE OF THE EARTH!
