Eight years ago we decided to start Unoffensive Animal because we found the Animal Lib movement devoid of anarchist views and the anarchist movement devoid of animal liberation struggle.

Since then we have acted as an anonymous platform for direct action reports, trying to keep those taking direct action safe and unknown, while giving them a microphone to express themselves and their reasons for taking action.

We have also worked very hard on prisoner support and court support, from fundraising for people who are locked up to giving advice and coins to people who are facing charges or fines, because we believe that people should feel safe that if they are caught breaking the law for their beliefs, they will have people behind them to support them.

We still believe in educating the general public about tech safety, security culture, and anarchism in general, even though we have stopped running workshops. We realised that Unoffensive Animal could not continue to do public speaking events with the amount of repression we were facing.

It hasn’t been easy to keep going for eight years, and we’ve been close to shutting down for good on several occasions. This is not only because of the legal difficulties of running the platform, but also because it is a lot of work for a small number of volunteers who put in a lot of time to make sure we are up to date.

However, we have grown as a collective and there are now a few more people taking care of the content for Unoffensive. We couldn’t be more proud of the small team we’ve built and would like to remind you that you can be part of the collective too!

Finally, we would like to mention how grateful we are to all of you, those who have appeared over the years, but also those who shared our first post and still comment on our stuff from time to time. We are incredibly grateful to all the supporters who donate via Patreon or PayPal, and everyone who has bought some merch to keep us going. It is because of all of you that we can continue to work.

To many more years of direct action until we fucking win.
