{editor’s note: This is the video of an already reported action by 269 liberation animale}

“This is a tale about an evasion. A tale about borders, blown up by direct action.

Borders between those who can transform, who can achieve a metamorphosis, and others.

Others who are trapped, locked up, stuck in a non-existence, in a body that became “their jail”. Others, who have been deprived of a future.

This is a tale about a bunch of comrades, mainly women, who decided that direct action wasn’t solely a thing for guys who like camo clothing, and feeling part of a self proclaimed elite.

This is the story of a collective, in red and black, that decided to show that the ones at the bottom, fight, and that all bodies, even the most messed up or the most destroyed ones are here to take part in a revolution.

We took those acts and made them viral, joyful and fun.
Even if a crowbar weighs twice as much for those who have to get rid of the coat of social order before taking action, nothing ever made us turn around.

Animals are no step stools to our feminism.

On that night, we were out for them, and most importantly, with them.

With animals drowning between walls of farms and slaughterhouses.
Forgotten by all, left to die in the machine, and whose calls for help remain ignored and unanswered.

The life of an animal is a life lived as a film negative.

An existence against itself.

“Bodies having to steal themselves if they want to survive”.
Maybe being part of a social minority makes us feel like acting harder, better, faster ?

We chose immediate impact, rather than stagnating in an abstract antispeciest scene full of empty words, far from animals.

It’s a fight that takes us right to their jails, to commit an escape.
All of a sudden, animals start flying above metal fences, breaking through obstacles, stopping the relentless murdering machine and finally, they can write their name in history. Always by breaking into it, and always through the big front door.

There, where the “undercover camera” that shows us the most cruel acts taking place in the slaughterhouse, does nothing else but reminding us of the desubjectification in wich animals getting killed and workers turned executioners are being placed.

In this very location, a slaughterhouse, direct action allows us to invent another end for animals.

To interrupt the way things would go.

It throws us in a powerful and emotional dimension, because there’s a direct connection between one’s body and their political power.
To those we left behind.

‘To girls who’s eye liner looks better than the future.'”

“Driving I saw chickens in cages and I didn’t hesitate to try and rescue them. Unfortunately I couldn’t save them all. The cages were tiny and full of weeks old manure.

There were people in the house, the light was on and a pick up truck was parked by the door, but I still wanted to try to rescue them.

There were holes in the run where I could stick my hand in, but obviously they were scared so I went to buy corn to call them with it. As soon as they saw it, they were desperate for it. The first one I got I gave corn slowly until she popped her head out of the hole, I grabbed her and pulled her out, running into the car and then driving home. Once I had left her in my house I went back and grabbed another two the same way. In total there are two chickens and a cockerel.

NEVER doubt helping an animal, they can’t do anything, they are victims of a system that sees them as objects of consumption for humans.

It was clear those animals were being used for profit, in that area they buy and sell birds to use in religious rituals or to consume as flesh. From the ALF, we value every life that is saved by direct action, it doesn’t matter if it is just one. One life will be free. Veganism is respect and justice.”

SPANISH (original):

”Pasando con el auto ví a gallinas enjauladas y no dude en bajar a intentar rescatarlas, lamentablemente no pude salvar a todas
Las jaulas son diminutas, están llenas de excremento de hace semanas sin limpiar.

Había gente en la casa, estaba la luz prendida y una camioneta en la puerta pero iba a intentar rescatarlas de todas formas.
había algún que otro hueco por dónde meter la mano, lógicamente tenían miedo así que fui a comprar maíz para atraerlas, apenas vieron el maíz todas se desesperaron, a la primera que tome, fue dándole maíz y esperando que sacará el cuello para afuera de la casa, la agarre, la tape con un buzo oscuro y salí corriendo al auto. Luego de dejarla en mi casa, volví a ir y agarré dos más de la misma manera. Son 2 gallinas y un gallo .

NUNCA duden en ayudar a un animal, ellos no pueden hacer nada, son víctimas de un sistema que los ve como objetos de consumo humano.

Era claro que estos animales eran comercializados,en la zona compran mucho para utilizarlos en rituales religiosos o para consumo humano. Desde el ALF, valoramos cada vida que se salve mediante alguna acción directa. Así sea una,son sus vidas. Una vida que vivirá en libertad. Veganismo es respeto y justicia”


19th April, Germany.

According to local media, the police are investigating an attempted robbery after an unknown person tried to steal a hunter’s weapon.

Cops say an unknown perpetrator attempted to snatch the rifle of a hunter commissioned by the town to hunt rabbits in the cementery on Firdaty 19th April. This led to a scuffle between the saboteur and the hunter. In the end, the saboteur managed to steal the amunition and left the area.

Apparently, the hunter was approached by an unknown person and was asked what they were doing in the cementery grounds. When the hunter explained that he had permission to murder rabbits, the saboteur decided to atempt to take the weapon away. The hunter assumes it was an opponent of hunting.

So far, the cops have no leads on the identity of the saboteur.

“We called him Igor and he is a billy goat who was locked up in poor conditions in a pen waiting to be sacrificed according to the Islamic ‘halal’ ritual at the end of Ramadan. But someone decided that Igor would not become food and rescued him from his unjust imprisonment to give him back the freedom with which every living being is born.

Initially taken to a stable, he was then taken to a sanctuary that takes in rescued animals and from now on he will be able to live with his fellow creatures, loved and cared for. The ‘halal’ ritual slaughter involves slaughtering the animal without stunning it, as required by European law. For us there is no difference because we reject animals being used and consumed by humans and we do not accept that they should be slaughtered to feed, clothe or otherwise. We do not want less violent slaughter, we do not want bigger cages.


Have a nice life Igor”

ITALIAN (original):

“Lo abbiamo chiamato Igor ed è un caprone che era richiuso in pessime condizioni in un recinto in attesa di essere sacrificato con il rituale islamico “halal” alla fine del Ramadan. Ma qualcuno ha deciso che Igor non sarebbe diventato cibo e l’ha sottratto alla sua ingiusta prigionia per ridargli la libertà con cui ogni essere vivente nasce. Inizialmente portato in stallo, e’ stato poi condotto presso un santuario che accoglie animali salvati e d’ora in poi potrà vivere insieme ai suoi simili, amato e accudito. La macellazione rituale “halal” prevede l’ abbattimento dell’ animale senza stordimento come invece previsto dalla legge europea. Per noi non c’ è alcuna differenza perché rifiutiamo che gli animali siano ad uso e consumo dell’ essere umano e non accettiamo che debbano essere ammazzati per nutrirci, vestirci o altro. Non vogliamo macellazioni meno violente, non vogliamo gabbie più grandi. VOGLIAMO GLI ANIMALI LIBERI. Buona vita Igor”

“ALF Locks Hunters Out of Wetlands and Spray Paints Rifle Club

The campaign against hunters continues in so-called Australia. The ALF has visited Lake Colac and Reedy Lake before the weekend to lock gates and prevent vehicles from entering the wetland. The Colac Rifle Club was also visited, and spray painted for their encouragement of blood sport and providing the training to take innocent lives.

To all the lives taken over the last month already and to the lives yet to be taken, we are sorry, and these actions are for you. Until every animal no longer fears for their life, we will be here fighting, harassing, and disrupting.

We pay our respects to the First Nations people of the land in which our actions take place on. We acknowledge the long history of First Nations people on this land and pay our respects for the lives that have been lost, the struggles that colonisation has caused to this day, and we stand in solidarity of First Nations peoples fight for freedom.

We further extend our solidarity to the struggles of dispossessed people all over, from the Congo to Palestine. Solidarity always, no one is free until all are free.”




Folks are organising the yearly National Animal Rights March in London and are aiming for huge numbers. Back in 2019, 12 thousand people took to the streets in the name of animal rights, let’s see if that number can be beaten!

Groups will be coming together, from hunt saboteurs to anti vivisectionists to outreach groups. Hear all about what other folks are working on and upcoming events. This is a great opportunity to network and spread the word about any campaign or public actions you have planned. Go with mates, your local AR group, or on your own.

There’ll be plenty of speakers, stalls, and an awful lot of banners. Dust off the megaphone, make some noise and take over London. *Friendly reminder that police will be information gathering at this event, so take steps to keep yourself and others safe. Be smart, don’t talk to cops!


We received this statement from Caso Susaron back at the end of march, but we did not have the time to properly translate it until now. For that reason, some of it is a little out of date but still very much worth the read!

“‘The deterioration of your attitude is proportional to the tenacity of your idea’.

It has now been a year and five months since the punitive machinery of power has held us hostage. It has tried to put the necessary weight on our shoulders to bend our legs, and thus bring us to our knees.

There have been many events and experiences in prison, both physical and emotional, that have tried to push us to the limits of our capacities. It has always been useless when faced with our convictions, which have given us the necessary weapons to overcome every attack in this centre of extermination; because that is what prisons are. Concentration and extermination camps for those who do not fit into the pantomime of social peace.

In these human swamps we find a varied fauna of behaviours and individuals.
From brave anti-socials who chose to live as they were not supposed to, taking by force what was ‘not theirs’, in an unjust and cruel system. To authoritarian and insensitive freaks, devoid of any courage or empathy. Obsessed lovers of commodities and the superfluous.
Some are as much of an enemy as a policeman or a slaughterhouse worker.

In this period of captivity that we have had to assume, always with the nobility that is expected of a warrior conscious and proud of their actions, a lot of water has passed under our bridges. From the momentary release and subsequent appeal by the prosecution, which led to the recapture of our members Ita and Ru in November 2023. To the subsequent definitive release, almost a month ago, of Itamar.

Sentenced to 5 years of intensive probation, news that we received with great joy and happiness.
And so many events: multiple mobilisations of our modules, days in the violent punishments of Santiago 1, conflicts with gendarmes and prisoners, obstacles to see our families and partners. Multiple obstacles to our irreducible vegan stance, which the police have dedicated themselves to transforming into one more obstacle in order to harass us.

And so one thing after another. Good news and bad news that sometimes set the mood for a whole day or even a whole week. We’ve lived so much…

In prison it is difficult to deal with sorrow and anguish, because you have no room to let yourself slack. You can’t, for example, apply the classic ‘today I won’t get up’, ‘today I will rest and give myself a day to think’. Here the wheel doesn’t stop and you have to know how not to show weakness in front of screws and prisoners.

Here you either grow stronger or you melt into the mud that covers everything around you, and for that great flow of energy that is required; conviction in our idea and pride in our actions and decisions become more vital than water or oxygen. And they separate us from the constant wailing heard from the vast majority of the captives around us.

In these 17 months we have held together as an anarchic unit, forming a space of resistance and containment for refractory political individualities who have fallen into prison over time. This has greatly contributed to our wellbeing, as we have collectively fought with claws and fangs the emptiness, loneliness and ostracism that prison seeks to thrust like a dagger through our minds and hearts. And we hope that as we go free, or to other prisons, there will always be tender urban guerrillas ready to extend a hand to other comrades that will unfortunately but inevitably arrive. Because of one thing we are sure, war does not stop! And it has its consequences.

Therefore we call on all those who dare to attack authority and its symbols. To always maintain the absolute notion that prison and death are part of our path. Always on the run and capturing those ghosts, obviously with all the strategy and care that the love for freedom deserves. But, also being mentally prepared in case one day they hunt you down, so as not to lose your attitude and ideas that led you to act, when adversity strikes. And in this way you will never be broken by this meat grinder called prison. In the street and in the cana you can be yourself. And not be surprised when the sometimes inevitable consequences of confronting such a powerful and omniscient monster come knocking at your door.

The three of us are awaiting some expert reports and judicial resolutions that will mark for better or for worse our fate as prisoners. Longing for freedom and a night of shooting stars with all our might. But clinging to our unshakeable pride as animals at war with existence. Never willing to bend or beg for mercy.

Because if there is one thing we have sculpted in blood and tears after this season of kidnapping, it is that we are living in our own flesh, and in infinitely better conditions than what millions of non-human animals live in life imprisonment and with the death penalty included in the majority of cases, throughout this decomposed world. For them we act, for them we take on these harsh consequences and for them we remain more convinced than ever that the way forward is undoubtedly: fire, lead, exploitations and clandestine liberations.

And just as in animal liberation, which is the pyramidal base of our anarchic and confrontational thinking, so also for the whole sick society that governs us; its police, defenders and false critics.

On the eve of a new painful and angry commemoration of the 29th of March, the day of the young combatant. A date that commemorates the fall in combat of Rafael and Eduardo Vergara, 18 and 19 years old. At the hands of the civil-military dictatorship that ravaged these territories on 29 March 1985, the day on which the events took place.

The first thing we have in our boiling blood is the indomitable gaze, tanned by the suffering of Luisa Toledo. Exemplary warrior and mother of both young men. A courageous woman who has illuminated our path countless times with her clarity, bravery and love.

In this new commemoration we call to take to the streets with greater force. Not to let ourselves be infected by the defeated spirit of the society of the false critics and to burst into the numb context with the beautiful anonymous anti-social violence. And the majestic fire that illuminates the darkness of the streets. So that no corner remains unlit, no police station unattacked and no multinational unlooted.
That is our call without hesitation or ambiguity!

One year and five months later, we are still as firm as ever. And not a hair of our essence and character has moved us.

We call for the vindication of our prison, with gestures and actions. To the active and direct solidarity with the instances generated by our comrades in the street, to financially sustain these attacks that inherently drag down our circles and families.

Freedom to Lucas, Aldo, Javo, Paty, Syde, Kuyen, Mónica, Pancho, Leftraru, Don Checho, Gerardo Leal and Felipe Rios. And to all the prisoners at war around the world!

And don’t forget that comrade Don Sergio Olivares, an example of war against the system, is sentenced to 15 years. He is already serving his sentence in the ex-penitentiary. For those who want to contribute, show solidarity and vindicate this historic, guerrilla and respectable person.

Total liberation, whatever the cost.
Fire to all the prisons with their jailers inside.
War on existence!

In all the years, we’ve never seen a more promising tech resource for activists than Anarsec. This is what the folks behind the project have to say:

“AnarSec is a new resource designed to help anarchists navigate the hostile terrain of technology — defensive guides for digital security and anonymity, as well as offensive guides for hacking. All guides are available in booklet format for printing and will be kept up to date.

As anarchists, we must defend ourselves against police and intelligence agencies that conduct targeted digital surveillance for the purposes of incrimination and network mapping. With the defensive series, our goal is to obscure the State’s visibility into our lives and projects. Our recommendations are intended for all anarchists, and they are accompanied by guides to put the advice into practice.

With the upcoming offensive series, we hope to contribute to the practice of hacking the State and capital. Astute readers may notice that the art featured on our homepage and booklets is taken from communiqués detailing how anarchists robbed a bank (Phineas Fisher) and destroyed police servers (AntiSec) using only a keyboard.”

You can find their website and all their fantastic guides and resources here:


We will keep publishing Tech&Sec 101 series as and when we find the time to write them, but we would advice everybody who cares about their long term existence in the movement to keep an eye on that website and learn from it.
