MC DONALD’S WINDOWS SMASHED IN SOLIDARITY WITH ACTIVIST FACING TRIAL.

18yh July, Tonbridge UK.

Report received anonymously via encrypted email:

“When we received the call to action to smash McDonald’s windows we decided to take action. A comrade is facing trial for a McDonald’s disruption. We cannot be show-watchers of the animal liberation movement any longer. 

We targeted a 24 hours McDonald’s in Tonbridge, Kent, to show we are not fearful and that no deterrent will stop us now that we’ve started. Four windows were hammered to bits before workers realised what was happening. By the time they came to check, we had already left.

We want to call out everybody that shared the call to action but didn’t take part. Our activism isn’t about likes and social media. We should take a stand. We have been there ourselves and this has helped us understand things differently. Now it is your turn.

We are calling for a week of action starting today and culminating Wednesday night, the night before the trial. Smash as many windows as possible and cost McDonald’s as much money as you can. On Wednesday, we want all the smashed (and replaced) windows to be targeted once again. Show your solidarity, not just your words.

In solidarity with our comrade and with everybody else facing police brutality and the weight of the system. We are unbreakable because we will not give up.

COWBIRD TRAP DESTROYED, BIRDS RELEASED. ACTION DEDICATED TO WILL VAN SPRONSEN.

16th July, Orange County, CA.

Report received anonymously via email:

“A cowbird trap was discovered during a late night stroll through the San Joaquin Wetlands in Orange County, CA. Under the light of the moon, wire cutters were used to cut the top off the trap – releasing 6 brown-headed cowbirds into the wild. Government agencies and so-called conservation groups have labeled the brown-headed cowbird as “invasive” and using them as a scapegoat for struggling song-bird populations. Each year hundreds of these traps – usually latter traps containing between 4 to 6 live cowbirds as “decoys” – are set up in parks and wildlife areas throughout Southern California between April and mid-July, where thousands of cowbirds are captured and “euthanized.” These traps are usually unguarded and in many cases held together with nothing more than plastic zip-ties, making them laughably simple to sabotage.

In memory of anarchist Will Van Spronsen who died fighting for real freedom for all and a life worth living.”

9000 BIRDS RELEASED FROM A GAME FARM.

11th July, South East UK.

Report received anonymously via email:

“We hit a game farm in the South East UK breeding pheasants for the shooting industry. We’ve heard that 9000 birds managed to escape. It was quite an easy job, we simply cut through the netting with scissors and knives and rolled it to avoid birds getting tangled up in it. Then we entered the pens and made them fly off. The sheds were left open and all the heat lamps were disconnected and smashed. The electric fence was also disconnected and then cut so the birds wouldn’t struggle with it.

Fuck the shooting industry.”

DUCKS RESCUED FROM A FARM.

11th July, Gelderland, The Netherlands.

Report received anonymously via email:

“After some careful and thorough inspections, the horrific facts that took place on this farm (repeatedly) came to light. No water, very poor hygiene, no daylight, only artificial light and hardly any sleep. (The hours of light are being manipulated) That is why we have taken action and rescued a few ducks from this plight in order to offer them a good life. The first thing that was found was the large pile of corpses that had been thrown right in front of the entrance of the stable.

Once inside the stable (doors were open, however, an alarm system did not work properly), the horror became visible again. Polluted, barely feathered, crowed. The ducks that were most battered were taken.

Once at home they received a beauty treatment. Finally water!
I have never seen a duck so happy and in its element.

Of course they are weakened and tired all day. Totally traumatised and afraid of everything that moves. They must first recover from all the abuse. Fortunately they already getting new feathers again already doing a bit better and waddling through the garden.”

PARTRIDGE RELEASED FROM GAME FARM.

July, South UK.

anonymous report, from @ALFUKpress:

“We easily located a game farm using the game farm map that was recently published. We then waited for a rainy night to help cover any noise we made.

Upon getting to the site we realised we didn’t need the bolt cutters we brought, so we hid them in a hedge a few hundred metres from the site.

Once inside we released a significant number of partridges who immediately flew off into the night sky.
