As you all know, one of the main jobs we do is supporting comrades in prison and folks who have to cover fines after taking action. The reality of it is that we never make enough money in order to cover everything we would like to cover, even counting PayPal donations, patreon donations and merch.

Luckily, many of you are super generous and want to help in any way possible. These time, we bring you something just a tad different thanks to @goaskforde, who has donated artwork to raise funds to support prisoners.

We are going to run a little raffle for a couple of weeks. The tickets can be bought through our website for 7.50 GBP and you can get as many tickets as you want. If you win, @goaskforde will send:

– “Now” Framed original 10×12″ ink drawing of a wolf
– “Light a Match, Burn a Prison” signed 8×10″ fine art giclee print
– Large vinyl “Boltcuttter Birdie” sticker
– Large vinyl “Praying mantis” sticker

In addition, we will send a hoodie of your choice (stock dependent!) and a bunch of stickers.

So if you like art, or simply if you’d like to support us and help us keep helping folks, please grab yourself a ticket or two down below:

We will anounce the winners on the 3rd of May, so you have 14 days to get as many tickets as you can and to share this around as much as possible!

Also, please follow @goaskforde on instagram and support artists as much as possible. You can also find the artwork on




Due to the recent developments in a Spanish laboratory, we felt it would be a good idea to remind folks about a victory that made the news around the world. 

On the 28th of April 2012 in Italy, and riding the wave of radicalism that SHAC had managed to create against vivisection, around 1000 people met to demonstrate against Green Hill, a beagle breeder selling dogs for vivisection. 

 The campaign wasn’t new, folks had been using many different tactics, from demos to underground liberations, to topple Green Hill. That day, tho, was exceptional, and it would shake the world with images of love and liberation. 

 While the demonstration didn’t seem too radical, once the people arrived at the perimeter fence of Green Hill things took a bit of a turn. Whilst many folks shouted at cops, shaking the fence and calling anyone inside the farm a murderer, a second group broke in on mass and liberated as many beagles as they could. 

 Images of smiling puppies being passed between the barbed wire, or the photo of someone with a beagle stuffed in the t-shirt whilst jumping the fence hit newspapers worldwide, and whilst some folks got caught and some dogs were stolen from activists, dozens of animals managed to escape a life of abuse, breeding and laboratory torture. 

 By no means we are suggesting that people organise a mass action where folks break into Vivotecnia in Madrid and release as many animals as possible as that would be terribly illegal, but hey, this is a piece of history we all can learn from! 

 The video starts slow. The end of the video is worth it. Give it a watch!   


3rd February, Neufmanil France

VIA: Chassons a pro hunting website


“Neufmanil is a small village of 1085 inhabitants located in the Ardennes north of Charleville-Mézières. A few days ago, the hunters of the commune found two cut trees lying on their cabin. The trees were cut at the base so that they fell on the cabin.

The hunters were obviously very surprised by this discovery and believe that this act of vandalism is the work of professional loggers. The mayor of Neufmanil filed a complaint with the gendarmerie in Nouzonville. A few days before January 17, an anti-hunting tag was found on the gate of the Neufmanil soccer stadium. A new act of vandalism that shows how hunting has become the target of radical activists.”


“Neufmanil est un petit village de 1085 habitants situé dans les Ardennes au nord de Charleville-Mézières Il y a quelques jours, les chasseurs de la commune ont retrouvé deux épicés couchés sur leur cabane. Les arbres ont été tronçonnés à la base de façon à tomber sur la cabane.

Les chasseurs ont évidemment été très surpris par cette découverte et pensent que cet acte de vandalisme est l’œuvre de professionnels du bûcheronnage. Le maire de Neufmanil a déposé plainte à la gendarmerie de Nouzonville. Quelques jours avant le 17 janvier, un tag anti-chasseurs a été retrouvé sur le portail du stade de foot de Neufmanil. Un nouvel acte de vandalisme qui montre à quel point la chasse est devenue la cible d’activistes radicaux.”

“Yesterday morning, at about 9 o’clock, on chemin Blanc in Sérignan, the firemen were engaged to put out a fire on a hiking trail. A hunters’ hut was the prey of the flames. The shelter of about fifty square meters burned down completely.

The criminal nature of this fire was not ruled out by the gendarmes. Should it be seen as a revenge against the hunters? No one knows. In any case, this fire occurred while last Friday, a doe pursued by poachers to Orange was found near the Pôle emploi agency. Wounded, the animal did not survive despite its transport to a veterinarian.”


“Hier matin, vers 9 heures, chemin Blanc à Sérignan, les sapeurs-pompiers ont été engagés pour éteindre un incendie sur un sentier de randonnée. Une cabane de chasseurs était la proie des flammes. L’abri d’une cinquantaine de mètres carrés a entièrement brûlé.

La nature criminelle de cet incendie n’a pas été écartée par les gendarmes. Faut-il y voir une vengeance envers les chasseurs ? Nul ne le sait. Cet incendie intervient en tout cas alors que vendredi dernier, une biche poursuivie par des braconniers jusqu’à Orange a été retrouvée à proximité de l’agence Pôle emploi. Blessé, l’animal n’a pas survécu malgré son transport chez un vétérinaire.”

“Roads spiked, poacher nets destroyed, fish liberated. ALF/ELF Russia 2020. It took us some time to get from the wild mountains and tranquil bays of Southern Crimea, but here is our belated report on ALF/ELF action in the former Ukrainian peninsula annexed by Russian fascist state in 2014. In the past year our group managed to spike forest roads in and around 8 areas of forest logging (‘legal’ and ‘illegal’, it doesn’t matter to us, the eco-anarchists) in central and southern peninsula.

On one occasion we stealthily crawled right under the nose of loggers to cut the tires of their vehicles in broad daylight. This intense anti-logging activity led to locals (most of whom benefit from indiscriminately cutting all the trees in their habitat) to start monitoring every outsider in their area, but we slipped past their patrols unnoticed.

We also took great pleasure in sabotaging poacher fishermen of the peninsula. Throughout the year we removed more than 500 meters of fishing nets of every size and design imaginable. We are happy to report more than 30 marine lives saved. Again, our activity led to certain countermeasures on poachers’ side. On one occasion they almost caught us in an ambush, but we avoided it altogether. On another, our team barely managed to get out of the water and dash for the safety of forested mountains nearby, when boats with poachers homed in on our site of operations.

Yours in the dusky nights of southern seas, Seal Team 5,

“Heading out into the night, not knowing what could play out, isn’t our favourite thing to do. It’s not weird to feel sick to your belly preparing for an action and we are not pushing this as an enjoyable act. This isn’t some irrational compulsion though, there is a lot that drives someone to the windows of a butcher shop in the dead of night with a bag full of bricks.

By this point now, you would think we are not still waiting around for reasons. Another day, another investigation comes to light. Be it in the farms, the hunts, the laboratories, the most terrifying and painful experiences you can imagine for them would still only be scraping the surface. You know this.

So get out there.”

“The bucolic landscape gave way to a vision of desolation. During the night of Monday, April 5 to Tuesday, April 6, a fire completely destroyed the main building of the Stampf pond, in the commune of Schaeferhof in Dabo. The communal equipment, managed by the AAPPMA (Association agréée pour la pêche et la protection du milieu aquatique) of Dabo, was hosting numerous public and private events until the first containment.

The alert was given on Monday around 11:30 pm. But when the emergency services arrived on the spot, the fire had spread to the 200 m² festival hall. Nothing could be saved. The fire was contained around 1:30 am. […]

The building, maintained and up to standards, had not been rented for a year and the first containment. “There were no electrical items connected and no heating,” notes the mayor. Also, the accidental track is unlikely. The arson is preferred, especially since several other incidents of this type have occurred in recent months in the area. The investigation is entrusted to the gendarmerie of Dabo.”


“Le paysage bucolique a laissé place à une vision de désolation. Dans la nuit du lundi 5 au mardi 6 avril, un incendie a totalement détruit le bâtiment principal de l’étang de la Stampf, dans la commune de Schaeferhof à Dabo. L’équipement communal, géré par l’AAPPMA (Association agréée pour la pêche et la protection du milieu aquatique) de Dabo, accueillait jusqu’au premier confinement de nombreux événements publics et privés.

L’alerte a été donnée lundi vers 23 h 30. Mais lorsque les secours sont arrivés sur place, l’incendie s’était généralisé à la salle des fêtes de 200 m². Rien n’a pu être sauvé. Le sinistre a été circonscrit vers 1 h 30. […]

Le bâtiment, entretenu et aux normes, n’était plus loué depuis un an et le premier confinement. « Il n’y avait pas d’objet électrique branché et pas de chauffage », note le maire. Aussi, la piste accidentelle est peu probable. L’incendie volontaire est privilégié, d’autant que plusieurs autres sinistres de ce type se sont déroulés au cours des derniers mois sur le secteur. L’enquête est confiée à la gendarmerie de Dabo.”

“News for the hunting world. Provocations are the order of the day against hunters, who pay the price. In the hunting area of Grundviller, two stands have been burned by the anti-hunters. They were set on fire in the middle of the forest.”
