21st December, Euskal Herria. 

translation of anonymous report, from

“During the night of the winter solstice, and despite the heavy rain and wind, a group of activists from the Animal Liberation Front entered the area of ‘Aiako Harria’ (Peñas de Aya) in Gipuzkoa (Euskal Herria) where there are numerous hunting stands. We destroyed 7 of them. The adverse weather did not allow us to do more. We encourage people to come together, recognise the lands where these death stands are located, and destroy them.

Animal Liberation Front.”

“Under the cover of darkness, we made our way through the woods last night and came across a grim little tower built by cowardly humans to prey on the wild. A couple adjustments had it come crashing down into a field where we have it on good sources that the extremely fucking violent and racist local fox hunt also like to meet up on Saturdays. This is not only a message to the cowards shooting animals from their towers but a warning to the farmers allowing the East Sussex and Romney Marsh Hunt to meet on their land, we are on to you. 

That night we slept under the stars while watching and waiting at some exploitation facility from a distance. We thought about the half a million animals who’ve so far perished in the Australian bushfires and wished for a heavy rain to douse the flames and bring an end to its path of man-made destruction. Sending a big fuck you to Scott Morrison and to the farmers pretending to give a shit, and endless solidarity to everyone working tirelessly to protect the wild by fighting the fires and rescuing the wounded. We must support rescues and sanctuaries at this time and just some that people can donate to if they have the money are @luckystarsssanctuaryl and @dimmocksretreatwildlife on Instagram.

“On Christmas Day, at late night, 70 chickens were liberated from a declared “free range” farm.

In fact, in Italy “free range” means also that animals can live inside bigger cages, even If the individuals can’t see the sunlight for all their lives and with their feet merged with the bars. The stress from producing all those eggs was huge, most of the chickens had lost the plumage and had infections.

Now all the 70 chickens are free and recovering, safe and loved. We don’t wanna bigger cages, we want to open them all!”


Part of what we do is to try and give tools to people to be able to take action and to feel more empowered in their activism. At the beginning of the year, we have four workshops lined up in Germany, Austria and Slovakia. If you’re close by you should come and have a chat, share your thoughts and learn from everybody attending! Our event are always for free as we believe knowledge should always be for everybody. We never charge anyone for travel, for accommodation or for any other silly shit.

As our workshops are logged on Facebook, we will create a Story Highlight on instagram for anyone who cannot access that platform to be able to get all the details they need. We would truly appreciate for people to share around the events to anyone local who would be interested in joining.

25th January, Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany:

Who are the ALF? + Security culture: In this talk we will focus on the history of the animal liberation movement and its links to direct action as well as how security culture works and how people can keep themselves and others safe. This talk is not just for those interested in taking part in direct action and everybody can benefit from the knowledge shared.

26th January, Wuerzburg, Germany:

Security Culture + From a chair to a raid in 90 minutes, hypothetically: As well as talking about security culture, we will try a new talk for the first time! This talk is tailored to analyse actions from the past and learn what difficulties people face when deciding to take action, how they overcome them and that with the right state of mind, anyone can take whatever action they want to.

8th and 9th February, Vienna dan Bratislava:

We are super excited about this weekend event, split into two different locations. The talks are as follow:

Saturday 8th:

– “Who are the ALF? A history of the animal liberation movement” (90 min) 

– “From your chair to a raid in 90 minutes. Hypothetically”. (90 min)

– Screening + Open Discussion (maybe Behind the Mask, or if people haven’t watched it yet, The animal People, or If a tree Falls, or maybe we can analyse the soon-to-come new documentary by We Animals.

Sunday 9th: 

– “Security Culture for the Conscious Activist” (60 min)

– “Getting into places and causing havoc; a look to the past”.

– Violence and direct action, What is justified in the path to liberation? “What is violence and what is self-defense? What can we justify on the path to liberation? Guided open discussion.”

We cannot wait to see what comes out of that weekender as there is a lot of work and thought put into it, so if you’re around, please come by!

Check our stories to see all the event details and share it around if you know people who would be interested in it!

As always, we would like to remind people that we cannot do all this without your support. Our patreon is sadly at an all time low and we could really do with folks joining for even a dollar or two. If you have to spare, please consider doing so! You can have a look at our tiers on the link below:

If you’re unable to join a monthly donation scheme but you still want to send some coins to help us with our work, we have a PayPal. You can send your donation over here: [email protected]

See you in the next riot, or in the next workshop!

4th January, Switzerland.


PHOTO: Unrelated. After investigation we have discovered that the incendiary devices did not ignite during the action.

“Murat Sahin (president of UETD) owns a meat factory in Buckten. We went there yesterday night and set fires. Our goal was the largest possible economic damage for Sahin. Via the UETD, he is one of the leaders in organising people for the AKP in Switzerland. Therefore, he is a major local political figure for the fascist block of the AKP-MHP in Turkey. We took revenge with this fire against him and them – fight facism everywhere!

Sahin appears in the media on a regular basis whenever Erdogan is in Switzerland or when events are planned in support of Erdogan. This was recently the case when Erdogan visited Geneva so as to propagate his plans of ethnic cleansing in Rojava at a UN-event. Sahin organized a meeting for a small circle of loyal supporters with their leader on the first day of this visit in the expensive hotel ‘Four Seasons’ in Geneva. Sahin has also become known for attacking people who dare to oppose the reactionary agenda of the Turkish government. It must be assumed that he also plays a central role in the surveillance of people from Turkey who live here and has connections to the Turkish secret service MIT.

We attacked in solidarity with all those who fight Turkish fascism. Be this in Rojava against the Turkish army, which was supported by the West and is now allied with jihadist forces. Be it in Turkey in the smaller and larger cities of the West or in Bakur, the southeast of the country. Be it internationally in a joint struggle against this barbaric situation and for a hopeful future beyond capitalism, imperialism and fascism. We dedicate this to all those who fight and who have fought. Nothing and no one will be forgotten – the fight goes on.

A fire in every heart!

“It’s the new decade and animal exploitation and murder is still widespread. So, the pixies thought they’d go out and smash shit up for some self-care! They had a few more towers they wanted to take down but were unfortunately spotted by some potential scummers. This meant they had to quickly fly off into the woods to avoid exposure (they like to remain imaginary in human minds). If this has inspired you, get off your arse and into your local estate/woods to take down instruments of murder!

Love and liberation, ALF. “

A pig farm was visited receiving graffiti on the walls as well as cables cut for the automatic machines and the tractor. ‘

‘The last day of 2019 was another excuse for a feast, to celebrate human domination by exterminating even more living beings than the rest of the year. Good feelings in the spotlight, but torture and violence all over the plates.

While they are feasting, the revolt is here. There is no respite for resistance. Every day of the year is an opportunity to attack this system. To hurt and weaken it.

As for every visit in a camp, the horror is there. The most gloomy places on this planet, for the most innocent beings. Barely born, and already shredded, gutted.

As for every farm, we check if the conditions are right to release the slaves in the wild. To restore their stolen freedom, open the torture factories gates. To stop leaving them behind, not to let them in hell. This time, it was not possible.

But we will never surrender. We are everywhere. We will go to every places where speciesism kills.

The end of the camps, or the end of the world. It’s a matter of survival for every inhabitant of this planet.

Therefore, no negotiation, no compromise.
2020: slavery ends.

“During xmas- & new year’s holidays 17 hunting towers & shooting chairs around Meiningen/Thuringia were destroyed and/or damaged so no more killings are going to happen from these ones.

When I was a little child I used to climb on each tower I found, until I realized what they were made for.

Since then, destruction is my only message to you killers. As long as you don’t stop killing innocent souls, we won’t stop smashing your shit!

Waking up on the 1st morning of 2020 reading 30 animals burnt alive in a zoo, I’m out of words and I promise I won’t stop until all are free!

Merry Xmas & a happy new year from the ALF”
