“We’re back. We’re back and we are taking the turkeys.

7 turkeys were liberated from a free range organic turkey farm. Fuck your welfare standards, killing is killing and we ain’t letting it happen.

These turkeys were already ‘sold’, already marked for somebody’s Christmas dinner, kept to grow fatter until the fast approaching day of their murder. They were going to provide the ‘Christmas bonus’ for a cattle farmer.
To the farmer and the humans who had paid for the body of these beautiful beings, we sincerely wish you a ruined Christmas and assure you that 2021 will bring you many more hits.

These turkeys who were destined for one Christmas on a dinner table, will now live to see many Christmasses and many years to come.

This action was completed in solidarity with our comrade who has been imprisoned this last week. 7 turkeys – 6 for each day of imprisonment and 1 more for a big fuck you to the system.
7 homes found, 7 lives saved.

Defend Direct Action - Hoodie

As you all know, we spent almost three months working alongside Underground Badger Syndicate in the badger cull, partly helping badgers make it through that horrible time, and partly filming a documentary about badger cull action. As you might also know, due to repression, we lost most of our footage and will have to wait until it is released or until we can film it once again.

During that time, Unoffensive Animal was mildly dormant as we were unable to focus on internet work as much as we normally do. Slow and steady we have been getting back to bring you direct action news as well as prisoner support and other stuff we believe we should give platform to.

Sadly, due to the lack of work online, our fundraising fell behind big time, and in the past few weeks we have really felt it. We run out of merch but we were unable to print more and a couple of requests for funds by groups were sadly postponed as we run out of money completely. The latest is our web server bill, that is due pretty soon and we are still trying to work out how we will cover.

We don’t really talk about money often because there is a huge stigma about donations, patreon and funding, but the reality is that within this capitalist society we try to navigate, money is needed every now and then. The conversation around funding and generating money through animal rights is an important one to be had and certainly not as black and white as “Give money to sanctuaries, not to saviours”, as it creates a false dichotomy where different collectives, organisations and even individuals are erased or wrongly attached to either one or the other. Whilst we praise the reminder that sanctuaries are a massively important part of this movement that deserve upmost support, it is important to also remember that campaigns, collectives and prisoners are also worthy of support.

We have written about how we manage money before, but we can sum it up quickly again. Unoffensive works as a media platform, so a part of the money goes towards serves, web stuff and technology bullshit. Some of it is either lifted or borrowed but a fair bit of website requirements we actually have to pay for. We also work as a platform for prisoner, arrest and court support. A good chunk of the money goes out for prisoners to get some food from commissary or for individuals that have been fined after arrest. If and when we have any money left, some of the money goes towards supporting groups and campaigns with equipment and other means. An example of this would be a night vision for an anti hunt group, or some cash for a grassroots group who needs to cover vet bills.

Note that none of the money goes towards personal gain, towards rent, or food, or anything like that. Whilst we are not necessarily against folks making a living out of donations, Unoffensive was never set out to “pay wages” and we will never do so.

So if you believe in the work we do and you think you would like to help, we really, really could do with the support.

We have two streams of income. The first one is merchandise. We are in the process of restocking and releasing new items. We print on organic, fair trade garments with vegan ink and we are shit at being organised so your parcel might take a while, but hey, long live anarchist self organising no?

Secondly, we receive donations through either PayPal or Patreon. Both are shit and both take commission but what can we fucking do. When folks join Patreon they get a sweet nothing as a reward as the only thing we could think of was educational PDFs and whatnot and we cannot imagine putting knowledge behind a paywall, so everybody is welcome to contact us and ask for any information needed.

Are you able to help us out and keep us going?

If so, these are our links:

And if you can’t, don’t have the means or already donate to other causes, maybe consider sharing our words and supporting us that way instead!




22nd October, Italy.

anonymous report, from Frente de Liberación Animal (translation):

“Stuck in little cages full of filth, in a disgusting environment, with a floor full of excrement.
The Animal Liberation Front released two rabbits from their cages
Now they will live a life in freedom away from exploitation and death.”

“Metidos en pequeñas jaulas llenas de porquería, en un ambiente asqueroso, con un suelo lleno de excrementos por todas partes
El Frente de Liberación Animal libera dos conejos de sus jaulas
Ahora tendrán una vida en libertad alejados de la explotación y la muerte.”

“On a cold night, we decided to dismantle 4 hunting towers we had previously spotted a few kilometers from the city. We hope to send a clear message to the animal killers and inspire more anti-speciesist comrades to take action in the field. Wild animals need us. Everybody can operate with few equipment such as a cheap pocket saw or a hammer. Some of the sport hunters have really good building skills though. Luckily for us, we found a good long pruning saw in one camp, which was really convenient to destroy it. xoxo

AHAB! Your sport sucks! We are watching you like you are watching them.”


WHEN?: 27th November
WHAT?: Take adverts off, reclaim public space!

Advertisement shits in your head. No, seriously, it fucking does. On average in western society, people see 3000 adds per day. Most of them are littered in public spaces. All of them have the exact same aim; to make you consume. To shape you into another robot of this society that spends most of the life working to be able to consume all the mindless bullshit that they sell to us.

In order to give a rest to your eyes, NO-AD day is an initiative calling for action to every single person who feels like capitalism should not get a free pass. On the 27th of November, people are called to remove advertisement from public spaces. From Telephone Boxes that simply require you to peel off the sticker to Bus Stop Ads (we’ve made a tutorial for that one) and even billboards that can be painted white, you have the chance to clear all the rubbish from your city.

According to NO-AD Day organisers, if you wish to work under their umbrella you should not commit acts of vandalism and you should keep peaceful.

Most importantly, you SHOULD NOT install new adds under that action name. The idea is to leave the advertisement spots naked and empty, to enjoy the simplicity of a life without adds.

All actions can be posted online under #noadday. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can send us reports like any other report is sent (details on our website!)

Remember that wearing a Hi-Viz makes you nearly invincible, remember that those spaces were taken from you without permission and remember that as we said before, ADVERTISEMENT SHITS IN YOUR HEAD.

There is a telegram group you can join to get more info and updates:

Here you can find more info about what tools you need and how you can open bus stop adds:

See you in the streets.

The beauty of not being sold anything.

“We’ve been out to play again… this time it was your well decorated store front windows that we had a taste for.
We visited 6 locations on this long, sleepless night, you don’t have to worry though, we absolutely had fun! Thank you!
It’s just a real shame that when you go to work in the morning, It’s going to be very cold and breezy for you, We didn’t check but… you have insurance right? I hope the cost to repair these windows isn’t going to come out of the profit you’ve made from our dead friends?
We’re going to keep an eye on you though, we might wait before we visit again, maybe when you’re back, feeling normal, comfortable and when you think you’ve forgotten, we will make sure that you don’t.
Sweet dreams for now xoxo

6 Windows for 6 days in prison.
Stop stealing our comrades.
Fuck the prison system <3”


The prison system is fucked up for multiple reasons. It once and again shows how it doesn’t work or “rehabilitate offenders”. It has been designed to push further class divide and to ensure those dissenting are silenced. Worse of all, it is a blatant corporate business where a few enterprises control the trade within the walls, making reoffending a profitable action!

For those reasons, and many more, we stand against all prisons. Prison abolition cannot come soon enough.

There is another huge layer to the prison system that as a movement we keep forgetting about. There are folks in prison who were thrown behind those walls for the crime of fighting for a just world. From black panthers (seriously, still) to anti GMO activists and animal liberation folks, many folks are locked up to keep their mouth shut and their spirits low simply because their actions were a threat to the status quo.

People are forgotten behind those walls whilst we write “heroes” under any HIT REPORT comment section. The same people who are praised on instagram could be forgotten the day they enter prison.

This is why we insist on prison solidarity. From our side, we divert quite a bit of the money we make to help stock up the accounts of some prisoners, so they can get commissary food or buy stamps or make some calls. But you can also help, even if you don’t have money to donate. Writing a letter can open a window to the outside, can remind them that they are not alone, can ensure they know they are not forgotten.

Send them news (sometimes, a report or two are nice to read, just remember not to send anything incriminating), tell them about the last hike you did, or the demo you went to, or about your favourite ice cream flavour. The content doesn’t necessarily matter if you’re able to transport them away from prison and into a world of colours other than beige and grey. It might feel like a difficult task, writing to someone you don’t know, but you will 100% make someones day.

You can find a few addresses under our “Prisoner Support” tab on our website:

On that same link you’ll find other sites that have even more addresses, resources on how to write to prisoners and ideas about what to talk about as well as political texts on prison abolition.

Please, take 20 minutes of this evening and write a letter. Choose someone at random, it does not matter. Write a letter today.

And remember, comrades break comrades out of prison.

“Report from Switzerland. 
During one COVID friendly evening walk we stumbled upon a few vehicle used to transport comrades to their deaths. 

Needless to say, we toyed around with them before heading off… expanding foam in the exhaust pipes, electrical wires cut & pneumatic systems fucked with. 

Though, we are not yet satisfied, we are on the prowl and we will find more, hope you can afford the repair fees xoxo “

“Whilst out and about we realised that a sheep shearer in Somerset didn’t give a fuck about spring shearing and was cutting and nipping sheep to rip their fleeces off well into November. We thought it would be a good idea to stop it. Their toolbox containing electric shears, blades and other menacing bits such as castrating bands was stolen. Some useful bits for our rescue first aid kit were also seized. The coils for the shears and other tools that were too heavy to take were cut and destroyed. The mountain of bags full of wool was cut open and painted.

As the shed was full of many other useful bits we took a few cordless power tools in the process. Some might be useful on future missions. Some others can be sold to fund fuel and equipment. Bad day for the animal abuser who lost thousands of pounds thanks to an easy night stroll.

Not your jumper. Not your hat. Not your coat. Not your wool.
