As 2022 comes to an end, we have the numbers of worldwide reported actions by ALF / ELF and other groups and individuals fighting against animal exploitation and defending the planet.

It is worth to note that the number of actions will certainly not account for even half of the total as many folks might not report their actions and it is very obvious that certain parts of the world where English might not be used as regularly could be publishing reports in platforms we do not access.

The total number of reported actions during 2022 is 177. There were 95 sabotage actions, 61 liberations, 19 arsons, 1 bomb hoax and 1 Animal Rights Militia communique.

Seven of the reported actions related to the fur industry, unsurprisingly as we have seen a relentless campaign against fur worldwide spearheaded by CAFT USA and a short lived yet incredibly successful campaign against T&S Rabbits in the UK.

Vivisection also takes a chunk of the actions, with four liberations of animals destined to labs or in labs, three of them in UK and one in Czech Republic.

The number of actions per country are as follow:

UK – 39
USA – 21

The most prevalent action worldwide is without a doubt the sabotage against hunting infrastructure, be it by vandalism or arson, and Germany, France and Italy are the three countries with more anti hunting sabotage reports accounted for.

The USA had an interesting development where many of the actions reported related to the defence of the Atlanta forest, whilst the majority of anti-fur actions and fur farm liberations also came from the USA.

The number of arsons has also increased from last year, as well as reporting an increase in severity, with Chile’s six reported actions being all arsons of big infrastructure, rodeo rings and slaughterhouses within other targets.

For as long as there is oppression, there will be direct action to fight back against it.

May 2023 bring either less oppression, or more fighting!


A few weeks ago we covered the Resistance Committee, a collection of leftist and anti-authoritarian militia groups fighting in Ukraine’s Territorial Defence Units against the Putinist invasion. We’ve caught up with them with some questions about their work and bringing ecological anarchist politics to militant resistance.

In the West, it is easy to deride those who choose to fight in the Ukrainian state forces against Russia. Who would want to lay down their life for a capitalist, oligarchic state? The Resistance Committee told us, “We are aware that Ukraine itself is an arena of fight for social justice. And those forces that really dare to have a considerable role in [that fight] should assume their reputation in defensive resistance”. This brings to mind the anarchists of the Spanish Civil War, who would not vote in the elections of the Republic, but came together to fight the fascist coup that threatened it

Of course, war not only leads to the death and displacement of humans, but also the destruction of ecologies and wildlife. There is a necessary tension for an ecological anarchist fighting in a war with bullets and machines. The Resistance Committee pointed us in particular to the Ecological Platform, an avowedly ecological unit under their umbrella. The Ecological Platform regularly post on their Telegram channel about the work they do, but also the necessity to fight this war in order to stop ecocide. Pacifism is well and good, and the manufacturing and selling of weapons is clearly one of the most lucrative and destructive industries that is propped up by state power, but Ukraine losing this war to Putin will only serve to escalate global militarism, and capitalist industrialists across the world will be the only ones to profit.

The Resistance Committee pointed out that they get very little support from the Ukrainian state. Apart from a rifle and basic rations, they are left to fundraise and gather their own supplies. Especially as the Ukrainian rations are rarely vegetarian, let alone vegan, this includes relying on the solidarity of supporters both in Ukraine and abroad. It shows how these anarchist units are hardly in the pocket of the Ukrainian state, and that when it comes to collective militant self defence, the only people we can rely on is each other.

In fighting this war, Ukrainian anarchists and their internationalist comrades are bringing together unique experiences in collective self defence and solidarity. When this war is over who knows where that experience will take anarchism in Ukraine?

Are you looking for some holiday cards? Look no further! Thanks to some amazing artists, Unoffensive Animal has a small little set for you to send your best wishes to prisoners around the world!

Thanks to Illustre Feccia, Kate Powell and ZeroFourSixEight you can pop a card over to your family, friends or a few comrades in prison whilst representing animal liberation and direct action.

The pack contains six cards, A6, and they come with envelopes. They have been printed on recycled paper and for every pack we sell we will be sending six cards to prisoners ourselves.

As always, all profit goes to prisoner support and the maintenance of Unoffensive.

Please bare in mind that there is a postal strike (which we fully support), so some parcels might be slightly delayed. We will do our very best to send stuff as it is ordered, but bare with us if your cards don’t arrive immediately!

You can find them here:


Lately we have seen a few folks sending DMs asking how to submit content, or sending us links to reports they’ve seen online. Regardless of it being an anonymous submission or a link to a news site, the only way to send reports to UA is over email. This is to protect the anonymity of activists as well as to ensure we actually see it. We do not check the multiple social media’s private messages often, but we will always maintain our emails regardless of how busy we are!

To submit a report, our email is unoffensivereports(aattt)protonmail.com

We have made it easier to submit reports anonymously by creating a form within our website where people can write the content and click send. That email then is encrypted before being sent to our address. Depending on the sensitivity of it and your level of security, you should consider accessing the contact form using TOR instead of your normal browser to ensure you are taking extra steps to remain anonymous.

We are aware that some TOR users might experience trouble with CAPTCHA and we are actively learning about Cloudflare’s new captcha alternative, which should work better with Onion Routed browsers. We will implement that feature soon.

To send media, you can upload it (once again using TOR) to any cloud service (like ufile.io) and then simply paste the link alongside the written report. We would advice to remove the metadata of videos and photos using any of the many tools available online.

Tell us what happened, tell us when and tell us where, but do not tell us who you are and do not give information about your comrades. We do not edit reports, whatever is sent will be copy and pasted as it was sent.

You can find our Contact form here: https://unoffensiveanimal.is/contact-us/

We hope this helps explaining how to send Hit Reports! The image used comes from Wildfire Magazine volume 3, where you can read an article about what to write on a report a lot more in depth!



Hey folks! It’s been a little while since we have reached out directly. The main reason is that we spent a couple of months working with our friends at Underground Badger Syndicate opposing the cruel badger cull in the UK, so we attempted to keep UA running as much as we could but we certainly had a lot less time for the project.

The badger cull, as every year, was one gruesome yet empowering campaign. On one hand, seeing tens of thousands of badgers being mutilated is a horrible experience. Whole clans destroyed, wiped clean to support the farming industry in the country. On the other hand, it is always empowering to see a direct action campaign that manages to bring so many different people from many different walks of life to do one thing and one thing only, sabotage the murder. After many shooters spooked away and many cages smashed, the main badger cull ends for the year, whilst supplementary zones will keep the killing for a little longer.

Now that we have a little more time to dedicate to the project, we would like to reach out to you. Over the years we’ve served as a platform for anonymous reporting, but also as an educational resource, be it on history, or security, or technology, as well as as a news platform for the broader revolutionary struggle. We have operated for over six years now and many different contributors have come and gone. We are at a crossroads now, where we would like to produce more media but we do not have enough time to do so with the current team, so we are looking at broadening up and calling for folks who would like to be active participants in the creation of media for Unoffensive Animal.

The project has always had folks working on it on a volunteer basis and none of us gets paid. UA is, and always will be, a mutual aid project. We are looking for people who would be interested in writing an article twice a month, or maybe even once a week! This could be on history of the movement, or maybe updating the readers about prisoner’s news, it could be on security advice and even on technology and security, but we are not limited to those ideas, if you believe you have a cool idea and know you can commit to it on a semi regular basis, please reach out! This project belongs to all of us, you included, and UA becomes what we all make it! if you think you can help, you can reach out to us directly over the email form on the contact us tab on our website. We do not need (nor want!) to know your details, or your past, or what you’ve been involved in.

Reach out and help us make UA a better platform for all!


Worth mentioning that our Patreon has been on a very steady decline over the past two years. If you can afford it, why not join and support the project for a few coins a month?


If you do not want to subscribe for a monthly donation, we also accept monero and bitcoin donations as well as PayPal. You can find all the addresses on our Support Us page:


Thank you for your constant love and support.



A few years ago, Underground Badger Syndicate was born as an anti-hunting direct action splinter from Unoffensive Animal. By now, the group is a fully fledged independent team of very committed activists that look for traps wherever they are and destroy the tools that murder wildlife.

We spent some time with them during the last badger cull and it was amazing to see the strategy and work of folks who might not see each other in months but still knows how to work together and be very disruptive to the hunters. We would love to share with you one of our favourite pieces of media they published during the last season; the release of a badger from a trap in the middle of the night. 

We will paste the words that accompanied that video, but before we do we would really like to ask folks to donate to them if you are able to; they are a non-affiliated direct action group which means no bigger charities or organisations are funding them, and they are constantly in need of support.

You just went for a stroll. Down the path, into the fields, snuffling around and looking for food. You know what you’re looking for. For a week, you’ve been snacking on peanuts every single day. You walk straight to them, feeling the luckiest animal on earth. Except for this time; your luck has run out.

The cold, deafening sound of the cage shutting behind you startles you. You turn around leaving your peanuts behind, but you are trapped. Locked in a metal box and without escape, you still fight.

It is desperate and frantic, yet hopeless. You scratch against the mud and your nails mark the ground, but they don’t manage to break the soil below you. You don’t care that your knees are bloodied, you want to break free. When that does not work, you try headbutting the walls. A streak of warm blood falls into your eyes from your forehead. There is no escape.

You just wanted to roam free, but the human had decided otherwise. You’re a pest, a problem, an inconvenience. You deserve death. So with nothing else to do but wait, you stare away into the night awaiting your fate. A gunshot awaits you a few hours away from now.

Today is your lucky day though, and so it is ours for having met such an incredibly resilient fighter. You didn’t need a saviour, but you certainly needed solidarity. So we extend solidarity to you and you keep fighting from today onwards.

Stay away from peanuts little one, and run free forever.



In the past week, the US has woken up to three mink farm raids by the Animal Liberation Front. First in Ohio, where 1000 mink were released into the wild. Michigan was the next target, where 800 mink were reed from cages. Yesterday, at a different farm in Ohio, 40,000 mink found freedom thanks to the ALF, who have yet to claim the action.

Every time that a liberation of this manner is reported, there are many critical voices within the movement that insist in the ecological impact of such actions, or that believe that the animals are far too domesticated to make it in the wild.

We would love to analyse those claims, as well as talk about the thought process behind this type of action, as they are some of the most impactful liberations in the recent years.

Mink liberations (like game bird liberations, or even deer parks) have one very powerful characteristic. Whilst they behave like any other animal liberation action -freeing animals from their place of abuse – they are understood easier as a sabotage action. Unlike other kinds of liberations where the domesticated animals will need care for the rest of their lives, wild animal releases do not require the transport of animals to a secure location, or the rehoming of each individual, or the ongoing treatment and medical care for the rest of their lives. The people involved in wild animal releases do not have to travel out of the raid location with a van full of animals (and the immediate and forensic risk that that entails). Instead, the animals are released into the wild, where they are fully able to meet all their needs and express all their wants. That is a very powerful and much less burdensome action.

We are not talking here about the release of domesticated individuals into the wild. For example, the release of rabbits from a meat farm will without a doubt ensure their death after a few days or weeks, whilst the raid of a rabbit game farm could see thousands of wild rabbits make it into the wild to live for generations to come. In the case of mink, for the most part, fur farms breed American Mink. They are not genetically (or behaviourally) different to their already free comrades. The release of American mink in the North American continent will not force those animals into any more difficulties than any other part of the wild faces with the uber-development of the human species trampling on all sorts of almost disappearing habitats.

There is always an argument about the ecological impact of releasing any kind of animal into the wild, specially on big numbers. The introduction of thousands of individuals does indeed cause an ecological imbalance. But we shouldn’t blame the liberators for that imbalance. The imbalance has been manufactured by greed and capitalism destroying habitat around the world, and by fur farmers that have decided to breed thousands of animals and confine them into a tiny farm. In fact, there has been multiple instances where the farmers themselves have decided to release mink into the wild when the cost of feeding and murdering them was higher than the profits of selling their pelts. Self liberated mink are a common occurrence in mink farms, and arguably if a mink liberation is so impactful that the farm shuts down for good, the ecological impact will be greatly reduced in comparison to decades of that same mink farm working ‘business as usual, releasing mink when they feel like it, with escapees running out of the farm constantly and producing a huge amount of animal waste that leaks into the ecosystem.

There is no action without consequence, and we hope that every single fur farm shuts down, be it because you make them shut down, or because the raids in other farms scare the owners into the realisation that mink (and fox, and chinchilla, and rabbit!) farming is a thing of the past, reserved to history books under the “human horrors and cruelty” chapter.

While there has rightly been a focus on the neo-Nazi elements in the Ukrainian military, we want to highlight the anarchists in Ukraine who are organising autonomously in the fight against Russian fascism, bringing together comrades from Ukraine, Belarus, Russia and beyond. Many of these anarchists organise under the banner of the Resistance Committee, created at the outset of war, they aimed to mobilise a popular resistance to the occupation.

Before the war they had no cohesive organisation but have been galvanised to bring together anarchists that fight under various groups within the Ukrainian Territorial Defence. This of course involves fighting in a statist army, one that also counts ultra-nationalists in its own ranks. The Resistance Committee have therefore created their own structures to communicate a manifesto that takes inspiration from the Kurdish Freedom Movement. It calls not just for the fall of Putin, but accepts that oppression and precarity are faced by all of us in modern capitalism and challenges us all to free ourselves and our communities.

In the next weeks we will be featuring some of their activities as well as their political standpoint as a reference of anarchist organising within statist war. We are working on a fundraiser to support their fighting not just because of their anarchist background but also because many of them are also antispeciesist vegans and because their mine-searching-vegan-combat-ration treasure hunts are fucking hilarious.

If you want to see this antifascist group fight free from either Western or Putinist propaganda, check out their Instagram and Telegram here: https://linktr.ee/Theblackheadquarter

Our comrades from Sweden Hunt Saboteurs are once again having to fight against the messacre that is the Wolf Cull. This time, 75 wolves are scheduled to be murdered at the begining of January.

We have attached their words below, but pleasem, if you can afford it, donate to their FireFund and support them as much as you can from wherever you are in the world. The group fights constantly against hunting praqctives throughout the country, but their members are also strong antispeciesist comrades who take on the fight in many different fronts and are deserving of as much solidarity as you can extend. If you are unable to donate, please share as much as possible!

“On January 2nd the wolf hunt starts in Sweden and 75 wolves have been sentenced to lose their lives in brutal and ruthless ways. The hunters will tear families apart, torture them to death and traumatize not only the wolves but all the inhabitants of the forest. The wolf hatred is both great and accepted in Sweden which results in wolves being tortured and poisoned to death. Wolves are also a big part of the trophy hunt which means that their lives will be sold to the highest bidder, both legally and illegally.

Hunt Saboteurs Sweden intends to make the hunting difficult and prevent the killing in every possible way to protect the wolves. We will do everything in our power to protect and save these innocent and amazing creatures from the hunters bloodlust. Do you want to help the wolves and our work? Read more about it or donate by clicking the link.The security of the page is high and all the money goes directly to the protection of the wolves.

Protect the wolves – hunt the hunters!
