WORLD DAY FOR ANIMALS IN LABORATORIES

WDAIL has been organised and locations and dates released. This historic demo against vivisection in the UK will take place on the 28th of April in Nottingham.

Make sure to book some time off and come support all the animals tortured in laboratories. The anti-vivisection movement in the UK has been quieted down by the state and by applying incredibly repressive laws against protesters. It is time to change that back again.

Unoffensive Animal will be attending so find us there and come say hello!

THE OFFICIAL ANIMAL RIGHTS MARCH – DATES RELEASED!

Surge‘s Official Animal Rights March dates have been released.

In the past, this march has shown the intent to grow to be a landmark in the animal liberation movement. With the obvious growth in animal rights activists, London’s march will most likely double in size in comparison to last year’s. 

There are also official dates for Berlin and Copenhagen so there are plenty of choices to be able to make it.

Check the events for the different cities marches down below:

Save the date and spread the word. Let’s make this BIG!

UNTIL ALL ARE FREE!!

LIBERATE OR DIE: FROM CAGE TO FREEDOM

INTERNATIONAL CALL!

JOIN US FOR A WEEK OF ANTISPECIESIST ACTION, WORKSHOPS AND SKILLSHARING.

15th – 20th March, 2018

We’ve been missing a real activist-run, animal-rights-based, radical
action camp, so we decided to make our own. In the Heart of the
Hambacher Forest, a landmark of anti-capitalist and climate justice
resistance, we will be hosting our first antispeciesist event.

THE LIST OF WORKSHOPS WILL BE UPDATED AS WE GET MORE SPEAKERS CONFIRMED

THIS EVENT IS FREE. With our concept of Anti-Capitalism, we do not
believe people should have to pay to learn, share knowledge and take
part in actions. Donations are well received as the occupation can
always do with some funds, but they are not necessary! (We have been
told they really like chocolate, hint hint!)

THIS EVENT IS VEGAN. We would like the space to be vegan and the
participants should be able to respect it. We dumpster dive most of our
food and although the forest has a divide between freegan and vegan
diets, the Antispeciesist Space will remain fully vegan.

THIS EVENT IS ACTIVIST RUN. We are all crew. We all take turns to wash
up dishes and to cook dinner, we all collect firewood and build a fire!
From each according to their need to each according to their ability, do
not be shy to help out!

THIS IS AN ACTION EVENT. On our first day, we would like to discuss
different actions that could take place during the week. Depending on
the skill level and legal comfort we will make a decision to take action
one way or another. Bring ideas and listen to the group, we are sure
that whatever is decided will be a wonderful action!

THIS EVENT IS BASED AT THE HEART OF A COMMUNITY. We will be sharing the
forest with others and many have lived there to protect the trees for
years. Some are VERY camera shy. Taking photos of the occupation is
wonderful, but DO NOT take photos of activists without express
permission. The same way, phones aren’t very welcomed in plenaries and
workshops. Trust us, you’ll feel a massive relieve not carrying it
around at all times!

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
You should firstly bring yourself. Call in sick at work and avoid going
to uni, what’s best; being a wage slave or fighting for the animals?
There is a list of things you could bring with you but if you don’t have
something specifically DO NOT WORRY, we will find a way.

– Sleeping bag and mattress
– Tent (it would be good to bring them depending on how many we are!)
– Rage
– Head torch
– Love
– Warm clothes
– Boots
– Hugs (but please ask first before sharing them!)

HOW DO I GET THERE?
If you are coming from outside of Germany, Cologne has great bus
connections! Check FlixBus and get yourself here! From Cologne, you will
need to grab the train line “S-Bahn” to BUIR. S12 to Duren will work,
but google map it if you’re lost!
Once you arrive at Buir’s train station, go down the stairs and turn
left. Keep walking over the motorway bridge and another 200m until you
arrive at a junction signalling left towards Morschenich. Take the left
and carry on walking straight until you see an airfield to your right.
Then use the sand road to arrive at The Meadow and say hi!

If you need more explanation, click on the link below:

WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE?
Come whenever, come for the event, come before and stay for years or
come for the weekend. It is up to you!

IS IT REALLY FOR FREE?
Yes. Food, smiles and a place to sleep, all for free. Fuck capitalism
big time. We are here to change the world, not to become part of the
system.

//

DISCLAIMER: This is an ANARCHO-VEGAN event. Nazis, right-wingers,
sexists, transphobes and any other form of oppressive bigot needs to
abstain themselves from attending. Also cops not welcome but we know
you’ll be there, won’t you?

DISCLAIMER 2: Many people in the forest have “forest names”. You can
rename yourself too if that makes you happy! We also don’t tend to ask
for real names, ages, place of origin and all that stuff. Also, we don’t
usually have IDs in the forest. Up to you to consider your own security,
of course.

SUPPORT HAMBI 9!

3rd February 2018.

Hambacher Forst Besetzung has issued a blog post calling to action in response to the highly repressive imprisonment of 9 people of the forest after the last barricade eviction.

Whether a lunch-demo in front of your neighbouring prison, direct action against the machine and RWE, pain and colour actions at RWE shops, peaceful blockades and vigils, climbing actions to exhaust the number of climbing cops in the country or a prisoner support and letter-writing evening there are actions to be taken by anyone according to their action level and legal situation.

The idea is simple, targetting around the world any RWE institution, but also saying no to the “justice” system and confronting tribunals, courts and prisons.

Show solidarity with your comrades around the world. Stand up against repression. Say no to this capitalist climate genocide. It is our time to fight back.

If you have ideas, want to share anything with the collective or want to report actions, use [email protected] as your contact.

UNTIL ALL ARE FREE.

PROTEST AGAINST THE GREYHOUND BOARD OF GREAT BRITAIN

28th January, London

A call to action to protest the Greyhound Board of Great Britain Awards was sent to us. Make sure to be there if you are close by! 

“This is the biggest event in the Greyhound Racing calendar.

Breeders, trainers, owners, bookies, in fact, all those who profit out of the misery inflicted on these gentle dogs will be there….. and so will we!

10,000 greyhounds are slung out of this industry every year: where do they all go? Some will end up running for their lives in China or Pakistan, some will be left in a shallow grave with a bolt to the head, some will find their forever home, but many, many greyhounds simply disappear.

Come and be a voice for those greyhounds that suffer and die, just for entertainment.”

CALL FOR ACTION AND SUPPORT!

This coming month is extremely busy for us at the collective, with multiple events (some occurring simultaneously) happening all over Europe! We will be at as many of these as we can, so say hello if you see us!!

Firstly there has been a call for action made by Hambacher Forst Besetzung for the 3rd of February in solidarity with the Hambi 9. In a recent attempt of eviction in the Hambacher forest 9 activists were arrested and remain in custody. Whatever city you’re in, engage in acts of solidarity! Whether in the form of vigils, demonstrations or the blockade of your local RWE power plants or offices, be creative. Shout fuck RWE from the top of your lungs and show a finger to the ‘justice’ system!

Follow the link below for more information.

You’ll also find some of us at Surge‘s London Fashion Week anti-fur demos. Get creative and make some banners, placards and posters! Bring your loudest whistles and megaphone and get ready to make some noise! The disturbing normalisation of fur on the high street is something that MUST be challenged. We must reach a state similar to that of the past were fur wearers were afraid to even step outside donning their grim outfits.

Find the event link below and let us know if you’re going! We will be able to bring down some of our merch with us so hit us up if you want anything!

During the fashion week demonstrations, some of us will also be in Sweden joining Hunt Saboteurs Sweden in challenging the Swedish championship of fox hunting. Details on this are currently brief, and we will post more information as we get it.

After this, we will be joining the Earth First! winter moot to give some interactive workshops as part of their skill sharing event. We seriously recommend coming to this; skill sharing events such are these are vital in meeting fellow activists, learning new tactics and getting your hands dirty!

We will also be out in the fields supporting our local hunt sabs group throughout the month, and carrying on with joining regular local food not bombs. If you want to be put in touch with any of your local groups, give us a shout! We can point you in the right direction and help you get going!

As always, we rely solely on donations to keep going and we would like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who has supported us on this journey. Because of you, we are able to do this, and it means a lot to every one of us at the collective.

If you want to support our work on a monthly basis please check out our patron account:www.patreon.com/liberateordie

SEE YOU IN THE NEXT RIOT.

SOLIDARITY WITH THE J20 DEFENDANTS

 

20th January, 2018.

On January 20th, 2017, tens of thousands of protesters welcomed Donald Trump’s Inauguration Day with blockades, protests and militant actions. As a result, the state arrested 230 people and 200 of them were later charged with “property destruction”, “inciting a riot”, “conspiracy to riot” and “taking part in a riot”. This means that each one of these people is facing 61 years in prison.

A call to action has been announced for the 20th of January, 2018, to show solidarity with the defendants.

Banner drops, graffiti, anti-capitalist stalls, anti-fascist documentary screenings and militant actions are encouraged under the frame of “Call for worldwide solidarity with the J20 defendants”.

Show them love and solidarity and do your part. Show the estate wherever you are that repression against our comrades will only increase the chances of an uprising. Make the governments afraid again!

SOLIDARITY WITH OUR ANARCHIST COMRADES!
