“VIDEO STORY OF THE « OPERATION ROSE » : LIBERATION OF FIVE PIGS IN AN INTENSIVE BREEDING, BY THE COLLECTIVE 269 LIBÉRATION ANIMALE .
Direct action illustrated by the videographer @lucie_aragon who has been documenting the fight of antispeciesists for several years and who joined us during this twentieth liberation carried out in Europe one night in spring 2022.
It is in memory of our comrade Rose, a sow that we liberated from a laboratory and welcomed into our sanctuary, that we conducted this twentieth direct action liberation on a spring night in 2022.
Accompanied by long-time comrades, we rescued 5 pigs from an intensive breeding.
There is something that is striking and obvious when we go into these places: the various technologies to handle, control and enclose the animals are of course horrors of the animal exploitation, but also the proof of their incredible strength and power of resistance.
The huge equipment of fences, cages, enclosures, and surveillance systems responds to their ability to resist and be offensive.
Animals are victims of the civilised capitalist world, but they should also be seen as political actors of resistance and as powerful beings who can shape the world.
Through the experiences that we share, we want to bring out the history of the exploited animals as a part of class societies, and in a perspective of struggle.”
