15th December, Germany.

According to a german hunting newspaper, since May 2021 multiple hunting hides, seats and towers have been set alight in North Rhine Wesphalia, Germany. The perpetrators have not been identified, even after a heavy police investigation.

On the 15th of December 2021, a wildlife camera captured a photo of someone setting alight another hunting seat and walking away as the flames started to grow. Police is still clueless as to who the perpetrator is.


Over the past three years, Alicante Spain.

According to a hunting newspaper, a relentless campaign in Jávea (Alicante) is making a hunter’s life “unbearable”. He has had continuous action against him, with the fences in his house either pulled down or cut from side to side as well as huge graffiti reading “HUNTERS ARE PSYCHOPATHS”, “MURDERER” and “ABUSER” painted on his property.

Over the past three years, he has lost seven dogs to the action of anonymous liberators, that have left notes saying they’ve “taken the dogs to give them a better life”.

He has even been left without any hounds during the main hunting season, making it impossible for him to kill any rabbits.

Since his first statement to the authorities, there have been no advancements in the police investigation, and the liberators remain free to take action.

According to media reports, a building belonging to Vallée de l’Aître Hunting Society that had served as a meeting point for hunters in the area for 32 years was burnt to the ground on the night of the 16th of January.

The 40sqm chalet and all the furniture and belongings were completely destroyed by flames, and Stéphane Claudel, the president of the hunting society, estimates a damage of at least 30,000 €.

As the building is not connected to electricity and it is very remote, investigators believe is was caused by intentional arson.

ENGLISH (loosely translated):

“On two nights in January, several hunting towers around the Hambach Forest were sawed and knocked down.

A small wooden one was first taken down by pulling and pushing it until it fell. A larger one, also made of wood, was damaged by sawing two of its legs in half and then knocking it over. The third one, a large metal one, was cut with an angle grinder. If you wish to repeat these actions, the towers are easy to break and you do not need to start a fire, which risks burning the woods.

Hunting is a part of the speciesist domination system. In the modern context, it is practised for profit and or amusement by killing and selling the killed people and their body parts. This domination is directly encouraged and rewarded by capitalist commodification.

Even though hunting is brutal, it is commonly accepted, and often romanticized. By directly sabotaging the practice of hunting, we refuse to accept their excuses. We accept no justification for hunting in any form, and actively fight it.

Hunters are either paid, or they pay themselves to kill, depending on the country. Their excuse of conservation only serves to uphold the oppression of the wild. They ensure that exploitation can do its thing while so-called “nature” is mapped, managed and controlled.

Speciesism and the domestication of non-human life not only comes from the roots of civilization, but it has also served again and again as a model by the establishment for the authority over classes. The fight against human supremacy is a part of the fight against oppression and towards total liberation.



“Lors de deux nuits en janvier, plusieurs tours de chasse autour de la forêt d’Hambach ont été sciées et renversées.

Une petite en bois a d’abord été renversée en la tirant et poussant jusqu’à ce qu’elle tombe. Une plus grande aussi en bois a été endommagée en sciant deux de ses pieds à la moitié et a été renversée. La troisième, une grosse en metal, a été sciée à la disqueuse. Faire attention si ces actions sont reproduites, à l’endroit probable de la chute de la tour et de ne pas déclencher de feu dans la forêt avec le risque de propagation.

La chasse est une partie de l’ordre speciste dominant. Dans le contexte moderne , elle est pratiquée pour le profit et ou l’amusement en tuant et vendant les personnes tuées et les parties de leurs corps. Cette domination est directement encouragée et récompensée par la marchandisation capitaliste. Même si pratiquée de manière aussi directe et brutale, cette expression de la domination est communément acceptée, et souvent romantisée. En sabotant directement la pratique de la chasse, on ne fait pas attention à son acceptation et laissons libre cours à nos critiques et attaques. On accepte aucune justification de la chasse dans quelque forme que ce soit, et la nions activement.

Les chasseurs sont payées ou pas selon les pays et « préserver » l’écosystème en tuant certaines personnes et en en gardant un certain nombre travaille à préserver la domination. Ielles assurent que l’exploitation puisse faire son truc pendant que la soi disant « nature » est cartographiée, gérée et controllée.

Le specisme et la domestication de la vie non humaine ne vient pas seulement des racines de la civilisation, ça a aussi encore et encore servi de modèle pour la mise en place de l’autorité sur des catégories de personnes. Le combat contre la suprématie humaine est une partie de la lutte contre la domination et vers une libération totale.

“Next to the Hambach forest and the gigantic coal mine that almost completely destroyed it, 4 tyres were punctured of an engie vehicle, a French multinational in charge of nuclear, gas and oil energy. All these fossil resources are used in parallel with “renewable” energy (wind, solar) which are not because they use fossil resources to be created and destroy the areas and populations from which they are drawn. They only add to the growing energy demand of this sick and self-destructive world.

It is possible to see this absurdity here, this coal pit of several kilometres, next to windmills, nuclear power stations, solar farms…

It is more than urgent to put a stop to it. To do nothing knowingly is to collaborate.

Without any illusion that this small sabotage won’t be quickly absorbed by the company, the objective is rather to multiply the sabotage, to make the enemies visible and to spread the practice of attack and information, without which nothing will move.

Solidarity is necessary to face repression, let’s build networks of trust, let’s attack to up the pressure.

Support for the occupiers of the Osterholz forest and the anarchists in Hamburg who are under state attack.

DEATH TO CIVILISATION, RWE, ENGIE, CIGEO (nuclear waste disposal project in Bure) AND THEIR EQUIVALENTS”


10th February, Spain

According to a hunting newspaper, ten thousand partridges have mysteriously disappeared from a farm that was raided by the ALF eight years ago. They say that some hundreds of birds have appeared dead alongside graffitti reading “animal liberation”, and that the police is still unsure if the attack had anything to do with the ALF or if it could’ve been a robbery.


We have talked in the past about how important a passphrase is to unlock your smartphone, instead of a numerical code, or if you’re still not up to date with how law enforcement abuses their powers, especially don’t use biometrics like your fingerprints or FaceID.

If you have not read about smartphone passphrase, you should start here:

Now that you have read that, we MUST talk about all other passwords you use to log in to every other account you own.

Passwords are normally stored in the servers of those accounts (let’s say Facebook for example), as hashes. That means that people cannot simply access your password as plain text. But many tools are able to unhash and find your passwords. 

So how do we protect ourselves from a major data leak, that would release into the internet the key to open every account you own? 

Firstly, we need to visit a few rules: 

  • You should NEVER reuse your password. It doesn’t matter if it is for an account you don’t care about. Just DO NOT reuse your password. If it leaks for one account, it will leak for all accounts!
  • Your passwords should be complicated and should be lengthy. There are many ways of “creating” passwords, but we will explain a very simple one later on in this article.

So once we have learnt those two rules, how can we create, manage and memorise very long, complicated passwords, that are single-use so you do not repeat them in every single account? 

The answer is using a password manager.

A password manager is a vault that keeps all those passwords safe and away from prying eyes. For most of our readers, whose threat level is probably low, we will recommend a cloud-based password manager due to its ease of use, but if you believe you should go a step further, once you’ve read about password managers check KeePass, a completely off-cloud alternative.

Our recommendation for a cloud-based password manager is Bitwarden. Bitwarden is an open-sourced password manager capable of storing all the information you need, but also able to generate new passwords on demand and synchronising within all your devices if so you wish. 

Storing all your passwords in a single drawer sounds like a huge, scary thing doesn’t it? This is why you should think before you even create a new account with Bitwarden.

1- Create a new, never-used-before email address. Only use it to create that password manager account, so it doesn’t leak. That means it is more difficult to try to brut force the password manager credentials if the attacker doesn’t even know what email address you could’ve used.

2- Create a MASTERPHRASSE. Remember how we talked about a passphrase for your smartphone? Follow those rules, but double it, or even triple it in size. Write it down for a few weeks until you are 100% sure you will not forget, and practise using it. Make it the longest, most complicated password you can create whilst being able to remember it because it is the password that will rule all the passwords. 

Now, you can log in to Bitwarden, and start storing all your account’s passwords. And because we know what your like, this is the moment we prompt you to CHANGE THE 6-YEAR-OLD PASSWORD YOU’VE NEVER IN YOUR LIFE CHANGED. Seriously, go on Facebook, change your password. Go on your proton mail, and change your password. Go on your amazon account and CHANGE-YOUR-PASSWORD.

You will find this a very good little tool within Bitwarden. When you’re changing a password in whatever account, you can click on “generate password”, choose the length and how complicated you need it to be, and the software will create the password for you. You copy it, change the password in the account, then save the new credentials in your Bitwarden and voila! You are done! 

But I can imagine more than one person complaining about putting all the vegan eggs in a single, steel basket, and hoping that that does not fuck things up. 

And you people are right. That master passphrase could be broken. All your accounts, compromised. And we also have remedies for those problems.

In a future instalment, we will talk about 2FA and how to use it (not the one where google sends you a text with a code mind you!). but for now, this is a cool little trick you can use to secure your accounts a step beyond the password manager. 

Let’s imagine that the FBI has decided to check out all the nudes you send over Instagram DMs. They try to enter your IG, but they are unsuccessful. Sadly, they find a plaintext of your password manager master passphrase, and they learn that your Instagram login credentials are: 

User: @thegreensheepinthehill
Password: z3JtBqGT$ZRjWY!cf&ppaY@xbe *(a very nice password created by the PW generator within Bitwarden!)

When they try to log in, “username and/or password are invalid” prompts the screen! 

Why? Because you did not put all the vegan eggs in one steel basket. You kept half an egg to yourself.

That metaphorical egg is “something you remember”, an add on to your password, something extra that you don’t forget. 

For example, let’s say that you really like plants, and your favourite plant is a pothos. Maybe that something you remember can be {p0th0%s}, and when you are creating new passwords to all your accounts, you keep adding “{p0th0%s} at the end of the randomly generated password that Bitwarden is giving you.

When you save your passwords, you are not saving {p0th0%s} alongside it, but you simply remember it, so when you need to log in to IG for example, Bitwarden gives you this: 

User: @thegreensheepinthehill
Password: z3JtBqGT$ZRjWY!cf&ppaY@xbe

But you remember that the actual password is:

Password: z3JtBqGT$ZRjWY!cf&ppaY@xbe+{p0th0%s}

And tada! You made your life a little safer by spending a couple of days learning a new tool that will really, really help you in the long run. 

Enjoy, and for the love of bunnies, stop using “password123” as your password, please.
