100 HENS LIBERATED IN MEMORY OF BARRY HORNE, 2017.

In 2017 and during the “Week of Action Against Speciesism” an egg laying farm was visited by the ALF. As well as taking a hundred chickens to safety, the humans involved destroyed crates upon crates of eggs, machinery and automated tools. They left messages for the farmer to read the morning after. 

The action was dedicated to Barry Horne. We decided to upload this video as we believe it to be quite powerful, not only showing how a free range facility looks like in the UK, but also giving an insight on how a barn is destroyed in just a few minutes. 

As always, the aim of ALFRIDAYS is to have an insight on what came before today in the path to liberation. We felt it was appropriate to showcase this specific video today as it was only this morning that we published a free range chicken report that has received multiple comments asking “why free range is wrong”. 

Read the report sent below: 

HIT REPORT! 

1st November (2017), UK. 

100 CHICKENS LIBERATED, FARM SABOTAGED. 

Received anonymously:

“Under the International Week of Action Against Speciesism, an egg-laying chicken farm in the north UK was sabotaged. Owned by James Potter, this farm supplies to main supermarkets around the country telling the fallacy of ‘free range’ as somewhat ‘not cruel’.

One hundred chickens were freed from their slavery, the machinery and disinfectants were sabotaged, all the eggs smashed and graffiti on the walls was sprayed on reading ‘EAT YOUR OWN EGGS’, ‘FUCK THE EGG INDUSTRY’, ‘BARRY HORNE, A LOVE WARRIOR’ and ‘BARRY LIVES IN THOSE WHO ACT’.

All hens are now safe and will live a life of freedom away from the exploitation of humans.

With this action, we would like to remember and give power to Barry. We do not forget and we do not give up. The Animal Liberation Front is only growing. We will fight against speciesism and we will extend our love and power to anyone oppressed by this system.

For a truly anarchist revolution,

against all hierarchies,

against animals being used as commodities.

ALF”

ALF PRESS OFFICER IN SKY NEWS (2005).

Content Warning: It includes some vivisection footage that might be distressing to viewers. 

In this episode of ALFridays we show you a Sky News segment featuring Dr Jeyyr Vlasek, an ALF press officer, during 2005.

Based in the USA, the feature includes SHAC campaign, anti fur campaigning and anti bear hunt protests. With a very strong focus on direct action, the mainstream media wonders the links in between underground and overground actions. 

There is also a snippet on the actions that the vivisection lobby took during the SHAC campaign to counteract the investigation footage, like employing professional spokespeople and releasing their own videos on animal testing.

It is an interesting segment that shows how direct action and acts of sabotage can get the attention of the media, starting the conversation on issues that otherwise would be ignored.

IF A TREE FALLS.


A story of the Earth Liberation Front tells the
remarkable story of the rise and fall of an ELF cell, by focusing on the transformation and radicalization of one of its members

With the arrest of Daniel and thirteen others, the government had cracked what was probably the largest ELF cell in America and brought down the group responsible for the very first ELF arsons in this country.

For years the ELF had launched spectacular arsons against dozens of businesses they accused of destroying the environment.
