LATEST FRENCH SLAUGHTERHOUSE BLOCKADE – AN ACCOUNT FROM AN ACTIVIST. 

We requested and received an account of the happenings during the last 269 Libération Animale blockade in France. Read the words because they transmit not only how violent the cops can be but also how the estate repression keeps creeping up and the urgency of more activists joining to make a change.

Enjoy the ride and if you for some strange reason haven’t liked their page yet, go support them now!

“The action lasted 14 hours, the slaughterhouse is the 5th biggest in France, hundreds of cows are killed there daily. The slaughterhouse was already targeted by the association in the past, 9 activists chained themselves to the gate and blocked the trucks for 4 hours. 2 Nuits Debout were organized as well and we returned there because it belongs to an important carnist lobby ”Sicarev”.

We occupied the rooftop of another of their slaughterhouses 29-30/10 for 26 Hours. The president of Sicarev came on Monday and tried to convince the police to be harsh with us and said we should all get a prison sentence, as if he substituted himself to a judge. The police tried to steal the phone filming the evacuation and an activist was able to hide it in its pocket to film. They were really violent.

After the evacuation of the activists chained inside the death row, they evacuated us on the rooftop. Some of us (15 approximately) were put in jail for a couple of hours.

Tiphaine and Ceylan, the founders of the association, who were just supporting the action on the streets, and who were not participating, were chased by police officers and locked up for more than 24 hours!

This is just another sign they are trying to put huge psychological pressure on the whole disobedience movement.

This is the first time in France that a slaughterhouse is completely unable to kill for a whole day and it shows how effective we could be if we grew our numbers.

People should stop saying they defend animals and put themselves as heroes, we are just here to be allies and now our resistance against speciesist industries must go into slaughterhouses. We must resist with them, not just for them. This is why we put ourselves between the knives and the victims.”

HUNT SABOTEUR IN CRITICAL CONDITION AFTER ATTACK.

“A Hunt Saboteur is in critical condition after being punched to the ground and ridden down by members of the Dart Vale and South Pool Harriers. The huntsman from the hunt was present and involved in the attack. Cameras and radios were stolen during the attack.

Saboteurs had been following the hunt when a small group of three were lured into a premeditated attack. The injured sab was punched to the ground before being ridden over by one of the hunt horses. He is currently in hospital undergoing a CT scan and repeatedly lost consciousness after the attack. He also has a hoof print in his head.”

HAMBI UPDATE! – UNOFFENSIVE REPORTS

After the cops threatening with barricade eviction and us waking up very early to have tofu sausages and a bit of fun with the “authorities” they didn’t turn up to play. What can we say, their lack of professionalism is tangible!

We have heard that hambis have been working hard reinforcing the entrances to the forest so that might be why they decided to prepare a little more. Who knows what the ecoterrorists have up their sleeve?!

They will come and we will be waiting for them with fun, games and a lot of creativity!

Until then… HAMBI BLEIBT!!

SEE YOU IN THE NEXT RIOT.

HAMBACHER FOREST UPDATE

 
It has been an interesting couple of weeks in the forest. With actions almost every day and sabotages being reported on multiple occasions, it surely has been a fun time in the forest during the winter holidays.
 
Unoffensive arrived a couple of days ago to find out that RWE was demolishing a (now ghost town) village close to the mine to be able to keep digging.
 
The locals were broken and disheartened, seeing the old church being demolished was something that none of them was expecting to happen.
 
The morning of the demolition, some activists from Greenpeace climbed the church and did a banner drop whilst Hambis occupied neighbouring rooftops to stop the machine from demolishing the buildings.
 
Sadly, the cops managed to take everybody down and RWE was allowed to carry on with their work.
 
Everybody was taken to the police station and later released without charges.
 
Meanwhile, the local filth has informed us that they are interested in evicting the barricades INSIDE of the forest and also that they would like to bring politicians from the parliament to visit the occupation. We cannot promise that they will have it easy.
 
THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES. WE ARE NOT GOING ANYWHERE.
 
HAMBI BLEIBT!
