EXTENDED SKILL SHARING WEEKEND IN EAST GERMANY, 3RD-6TH JANUARY.

The AAA Pödelwitz invites you to a new year’s skill-share to strengthen the resistance against coal and capitalism in the lignite mining area close to Leipzig. Pödelwitz, the village where the skill-share will happen, is threatened to be destroyed to make the close opencast coal mine bigger and the villagers are going to be dispossessed of their houses. Let’s get together and build a community of resistance against that climate killing energy! We can use the old train station, the rooms are heated and there is electricity and water: pure luxury!

Workshops and discussions will be about all kind of stuff for example about the communities of Siberia slowly killed by coal, how to set up a vegan cooking collective, degrowth, encryption, direct action, rhythms of resistance,… and the evenings will have concerts from friends, jam sessions or films about struggles we feel close to.

UNOFFENSIVE UPDATE – HOW TO CONTACT US.

 

We have been at this for a little while and many people contact us with loads of different queries. From questions about workshops to Hit Reports, there are safe ways to send us whatever information is needed. 

Many times folks private message us about a question related to a post or asking how to support us. We are always happy to receive those messages via social media. 

For Hit Reports and any other lengthier topics like workshops or joining a future action or event, we ask you to take safety steps to protect your identity from a system that will most likely be monitoring our conversations. 

On our website we have a “Contact” tab where you can learn about how to do so safely, but we wanted to make a post about it so folks are informed in every platform. 

To mask your Internet address, we strongly advise you to use a VPN (winscribe, ProtonVPN or maybe the beta version of RiseUpVPN) and a Tor Browser. That helps you putting layers in between your internet service and the receiver, and whoever could be trying to access the information in between. This will only work if you close all other software applications connected to the internet and only use Tor after connecting the VPN. 

To mask your identity we ask folks to not use their personal email address. This will certainly contain personal information that should never be attached to a hit report, for example. Using a spam address like GuerrillaMail should work perfectly. 

When sending a report, personal details like names and ages should be completely avoided. It is unnecessary and unrelated to the action. Media (photos or videos) are strongly encouraged. They should be attached to the same mail, or uploaded (through Tor) to wetransfer, then pasting the link onto the email. 

PGP encryption is also advised but if the other steps have been taken and there is no need for a response, you should be sound enough to send it without it. If you use PGP, we might take over a week to be able to decrypt the mail so be mindful about the wetransfer self deleting times. 

This steps with links and our PGP key can be found on the link below.

We will not publish reports coming via Facebook or Instagram. 

We hope this all makes sense and we can all learn a little more how to keep safe online!

COORDINATED SABOTAGE ATTACKS AGAINST HUNTING.

 

26th December, Euskal Herria.

received anonymously:

“During the night between December 26 and 27, Animal Liberation Front cells carried out coordinated sabotage attacks against hunting structures and buildings in the Basque Country. Hunting posts and towers have been taken down and destroyed in Ermua, Eskoriatza, Mendiola, Pasaia, Peralta, Gares, Eunate, Erreniaga, Peralta, and Kinto. 25 towers were taken down in total, and even more posts were destroyed. Another building used by hunters has also been targeted.

We are not going to passively stand by and look elsewhere, while sentient beings are being oppressed, exploited or killed for the sole reason of belonging to another species. There are over 50000 hunting licences in the Basque Country, a single murder by each of those hunter would be an unacceptable massacre, but sadly the ammount of fatal victims caused by this murderers is much higher.

Speciesism creates thousands of deadly victims per second, to overcome this action is essential and urgent.

For those reasons we consider legitimate:
– Any form of protest or fight against the suffering we make non-human animals endure.
– The liberation of non-human animals from their confinement, offering them a new home, suitable for their needs.
– To carry out investigations so that everyone can see what we make non-humans go through.
– To boycott companies and institutions that protect, fund or engage in the oppression of non-human animals.
– To sabotage companies, institutions, tools and infrastructure that make it possible for this oppression to happen.

As long as this actions are carried out whithout causing any physical harm to any animal (human or not).

The goals of last night’s actions are:
– To reduce the number of animals murdered by hunters.
– To deal economic damage to hunters and their industry.
– To fight back against the injustice that non-human animals suffer.
– To show that the Basque Animal Liberation movement is growing stronger.
– To encourage Basque antispeciesists to take an active role in this struggle.

We hereby call all antispeciesists across the Basque Country to step up and take action, going vegan is not enough to end this oppression. If not you, who? If not now, when?

Finaly, we also want to give a shout out to all those who meet every week to conspire in favor of non-human animals, those who carry out investigations to show us what the non-humans have to experience, those who keep informing about our movement, and those who work in sanctuaries taking care of liberated non-humans. Thanks so much for your commitment, your work is essential, keep it up!

Until every cage is empty, every mouth is fed, every prison is a library, and everyone is free!

“Abenduak 26 eta 27 arteko gauean Animalien Askapen Frontearen izenpean batzen diren hainbat taldek ehiztarien eraikinak erasotu dituzte Euskal Herrian. Ehizarako erabiltzen diren dorre eta postuak bota dira Ermuan, Eskoriatzan, Mendiolan, Pasaian, Garesen, Eunaten, Erreniagan, Peraltan, eta Kintoan. Guzira 25 dorre bota dira, eta oraindik postu gehiago suntsitu. Eraikin bat ere erasotu da.

Ez gara pasiboki beste alde batera begira geratuko, beste espezie batekoa jaio izan soilagatik norbanako sentikorrak zapaltzen, esplotatzen edota hiltzen dituzten bitartean. Eukal Herrian 50000 baino ehiza lizentzia gehigo daude, horietako bakoitzak hilketa bakarra burutuko balu, hiltzaile hauek eragindako sarraskia onartezina izango litzateke, baina zoritxarrez biktima kopurua askoz handiagoa da.
Espezismoak milaka biktima ditu segunduro, eta honi aurre egiteko ekintza premiazkoa, eta ezinbestekoa da.

Arrazoi hauengatik legitimotzat jotzen dugu:
– Animaliei eragiten diegun sufrimenduaren aurkako edozein protesta edota borroka erreibindikatibo.
– Animaliei leku duin bat eskeiniz, euren gatibutasunetik askatzea.
– Animaliek bizi duten egoera zein den ikusarazteko ikerketak egitea.
– Animalien zapalkuntza babesten duten enpresa eta instituzioei boikota egitea.
– Animaliek zapaltzen dituzten, edo zapalkuntza hau babesten duten enpresa, instituzio, tresna, edo infraestrukturak saboteatzea.

Ekintza hauek beti animaliei (gizakiak ala ez) min fisikorik eragin gabe.

Bart gaueko ekintzarekin lortu nahi duguna da:
– Ehiztariek animalia gutxiago hiltzea.
– Ehiztariei eta ehizaren industriari kalte ekonomikoak eragitea.
– Animaliek sufritzen duten injustiziari erantzutea.
– Euskal Herriko mugimendu antiespezista sendotzen ari dela erakustea.
– Euskal antiespezistak borroka honetan parte aktiboa hartzera animatzea.

Beganoa izatea ez da nahikoa zapalkuntza honekin amaitzeko. Ez bazara zu, nor? Ez bada orain, noiz?

Amaitzeko, besarkada handi bat bidali nahi diegu astero gizakiak ez diren animalien alde konspiratzeko biltzen diren asanbladei, esplotatuen egoera erakusteko ikerketak egiten dituztenei, mugimenduaren berri ematen dutenei, eta animaliak zaintzen dituzten santutegiei. Eskerrik asko zuen konpromezuarengatik, zuen lana ezinbestekoa da, segi horrela!

Kaiola guztiak hutsik dauden arte, sabel guztiak janariz beteta, espetxe guztiak liburutegi bilakatu arte, eta denok aske izan arte!

IT’S FUCKING KICKING OFF IN HAMBACHER FORST

 

During the last weeks we have been working hard in Hambi, building a treehouse in memory of Waka and getting used to a forest really hurt after the big eviction. Two ground evictions were endured before the holidays with RWE and the cops showing incredibly disproportionate violence and destroying people’s homes. 

During the holidays, multiple actions took place around the mine. The Spiegel reported two security cars set on fire after a rain of Moldova cocktails fell into the secu point. Must be climate change. 

A report on Indymedia also popped up claiming responsibility for the arson of a pumping station that drains the forest of much needed water and signed “Hambi Chaos Christmas”. 

Yesterday, NRW police announced a raid in the Meadow (legal protest camp next to the woods) and in the WAA, a house that has served as a base for hambis outside of the forest, 45 minutes away from Hambacher. They justified the raid as a search of dangerous tools and materials that could be used for future actions. HambiEA (the legal team for the forest) was stolen of their phones during the WAA raid, ensuring that any ambi arrested during the police action would not be able to let the legal team know. In the Meadow, in an attempt to evict three people from a small hut, the police emptied almost 8 litres of pepper spray in the 6sqm holding to later arrest the three folk living inside. 

Meanwhile, the forest was also under attack. RWE workers protected by cops smashed windows, fire places and communal areas. Our sleeping space was once again destroyed. Whilst we were attempting to move some of our belongings and materials to hide them deep in the woods, a team of eight cops tackled us to the ground and arrested us. 

They managed to destroy our harnesses using nail planks and stepping over them, they took our material and clothes and they threatened us with lengthier arrest and possible imprisonment if we did not give our personal details. Through the threats, we did not give in and kept ourselves anonymous. After a few hours we were released with a ban on Hambacher Forst for “the next 24 hours”. 

We are back building today. 

They only make us stronger. 

They only make us angrier. 

FOR THE WILD.

DOORS GLUED, WALLS PAINTED BEFORE MEETING ABOUT GENETICALLY MODIFIED ANIMALS.

November 27th, Madrid

“Tuesday, November 27, the day before the start of the course ‘introduction to research on genetically modified animals’ that took place at the official veterinary school in Madrid, the door of the building was glued, the facade and ground were painted, and posters against genetic research were pasted.
The State has been promoting these courses and this type of research for years where animals are tortured with the aim of applying these results to human life, thus being able to control all aspects of our life and the environment.
It is necessary to know the types of projects that are being promoted in order to confront the techno-scientific advance.
