What is Animal Welfare?
Animal welfare is not the same as Animal Rights.
Countries that do have animal welfare, apply this to domestic pets. Animals classed as food have no protection.
Animal Rights gives all the species the right to live, not to be exploited.
The Murder of Regan Russell
2020 - Canada made making it illegal for citizens to film the suffering of animals inside meat farms or transportation trucks taking them to slaughter
'BURLINGTON - Animal Justice is condemning the tragic death of Regan Russell, a compassionate animal advocate who was killed today outside of the Fearmans Pork Inc. slaughterhouse in Burlington, Ontario in Canada. She was violently run over by a transport truck as she attended a peaceful vigil outside of the facility.' source
This beautiful and kind person went to one of the saddest places on earth, to offer love to terrified pigs before they are slaughtered. As the truck carrying pigs arrived, she approached the pigs to comfort them, but the truck driver accelerated, run her over, and killed her.
Her only crime was to try to comfort the pigs for a few seconds before they get inside the slaughterhouse. Here is Regan on video, click!
Regan was killed a few days after Bill 156 passed in Ontario, making it illegal for citizens to film the suffering of animals inside meat farms or transportation trucks taking them to slaughter.
This bill was promoted by the meat industry, which is concerned that such footage may reduce the public's appetite for its products. Tragically, it seems that Regan's killing was not caught on camera and that the authorities have decided to classify her killing as an accident. Source, source, source, source
And the world responds on the death of Animal Rights activist, Regan Russell...
AN ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVIST WAS RUN DOWN BY A SLAUGHTERHOUSE TRUCK AT A VIGIL FOR PIGS. She was dragged 50 feet to her death. People at the scene said it was deliberate murder.
One description....."The 2 minutes was up and she was walking away from the truck. The truck turned off harvester into fearman's sped up and she tried to get out of the way and he drove over her dragging her under his front. source
And this is how they respond.
No respect for animal life. No respect for human lives.
We see this often, well known psychological disorders.

The deadliest environmental causes in 2018: Protesting mining, agribusiness, dams
December 2018, the bodies of brothers Neri and Domingo Esteban Pedro were found along the banks of Guatemala's Yal Witz River, shot in the head. The two had recently rallied against a dam in the Ixquisis region of San Mateo Ixtatán in the western part of the country. Their fate was not unique. According to a newly released report from the non-governmental organization Global Witness, at least 164 environmental activists were killed in 2018 alone. The deadliest industries to oppose: mining (43 deaths), agribusiness (21 deaths), and dams and other water resources (17 deaths).

The importance of documenting so consumers know the truth..
Dutch Profit Farmers demand higher sentences against animal activists
The Dutch profit farmers (or Farmer Defence Force, as they call themselves) demand higher sentences against animal activists: "For the next stable occupation it is not a question of whether there will be fatalities, but how many." Violent farmers do not even acknowledge animals are living beings.
Such 'farmers' are psychopaths; serial killers also do not acknowledge the lives and suffering of their victims.
These are not men. Men do not exploit and murder the weakest of society. Real men only kill in times of survival.
Is just one of the many violent meat eaters online who for some reason visit vegan pages only to spew hate and post threats. Plaban belongs to a majority in this world.

What animal activists uncover
The RSPCA's mission as an organisation is to "to prevent cruelty to animals by actively promoting their care and protection". In response we ask - what kind of supposed 'animal protection' organisation would promote cramming 38,250 chickens into a single shed? Or promote the consumption of slaughtered animals' bodies? What kind of 'animal protection' organisation promotes the breeding, raising and slaughter of animals - animals whose bodies are almost guaranteed to have debilitating deformities due to their rapid growth from years of humans selectively breeding them? No animal protection organisation. The RSPCA is nothing but a branch of the animal agriculture industry, profiting off the backs of exploited animals and lying to consumers, leading them to believe that you can use and abuse someone 'ethically'.

CALL FOR SOLIDARITY
Malcolm Klimowicz facing 10 years in prison for...... filming at a mink farm in Ontario......
In 2017 Malcolm Klimowicz did a number of undercover investigations of mink farms in Ontario, Canada. Unsurprisingly the self regulated industry was not happy to have footage of what goes on within their farms viewable to the public. Klimowicz handed over a legal complaint to the OSPCA (Ontario Society For The Protection Of Animals) along with the footage. The complaint documented observations of injured and infected animals being denied medical treatment. Unsanitary living conditions - cages and rotten food covered in faeces. After lengthly legal proceedings, two charges were defeated but Klimowicz is now facing 10 years in prison just for filming at the Walt Freeman mink farm in Battersea, Ontario.
These court cases have been coined the #MinkTrial
pits of urine releasing toxic ammonia fumes, and other forms of neglect
all typical within the fur industry. The OSPCA took no action against
the farms but a few months later police laid 3 charges of break &
enter (at 3 different mink farms) despite the fact no property damage or
other crimes had been committed.
Animal Ag has a long history of targeting whistleblowers and activists, using their billions to fund the creation of laws that criminalise people for exposing what goes on within the industry.
So this is a call for
solidarity against state repression alongside the indefensible evil that
is the fur trade. Support our comrade on trial and our many comrades
trapped in fur farms across the world. Get to the nearest fur farm,
Canadian embassy or shop that sells fur. Solidarity comes in many forms,
take as many as you are able. Now is the time to double down on our
efforts to defeat the fur trade.
Thanks to the 23 thousand plus emails sent to the court requesting the trial be viewable to the public, here is the YouTube link where anyone can watch the trial online .
Here are links to more info about the investigations and campaign as well as the fundraiser for legal fees, end fur farming, gofundme

Niclas Pettersson, mink murderer
Sweden, december 2020 (source of this article) - campaigning against the fur industry will get you imprisoned. Multiple activists have even been fined for protesting Niclas Pettersson's fur farm in Falkernberg. A few folks were fined after being charged with trespass and (you can't make this up) wearing a mask at a protest. The fines account to 30,000 SEK (around 3000 EUR) and they have opened up a couple of income streams for anyone to donate and help get those fines covered. Thanks to our patrons and folks buying merch, we sent 600GBP their way just this morning, but we are asking to anyone who is able to donate, even if it is just 10 coins, to do so! Any amount will help getting rid of the burden of fines by the state. You can donate by PayPal using their email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or you can order some of their merch here: www.djurfront.com/merch
You can follow Djurfront and what they are doing with their campaigns on https://djurfront.com/ or on social media. Please remember that it is everybody's responsibility to show solidarity and love to prisoners and activists being bashed by the state. The fight is long and we are likely to see more people being targeted by a system that was programmed to protect itself. Capitalism is a massive monster, but our solidarity and strength can topple even the biggest of enemies.
Satanic family; like mother like son. ''The almost bald man on the left is the last mink farmer in Falkenberg and next to what we understood his mother. One might think it's a selfie stick at first but no, a golf club. This in an attempt to scare activists from paying attention to the mink farm that kills 20,000 minks every year. But that attempt failed completely because the campaign spread widely.' source
Protesters labeled as 'extremists/terrorists'
The labelling of the likes of animal cruelty aware protesters as 'extremists' must stop. Who is the extreme terrorist, he who kills all day or he who protests against it? The usual tactic is as followed; first to ignore, then to ridicule, then to portray as extremists with half lies or suggestions which will result in their loss of job or freedom.
"I understand the emotion, but we have to get these figures (animal friends) away. Either behind bars, or out of land, or so many fines that they can only run newspaper districts."
2020, the rise of the Farmers Defense Force in Holland: Mischa Bouwer, spokesperson for Farmers Defense Force and mink breeder about fur ban: "My father and I will just go abroad. I'm watching Wisconsin now; there is no minimum for the size of a mink's cage.
If you want to, you can just stuff a mink in a carton of milk".
March 2020 - dairy farmer Bennie Stevelink is threatened by fellow farmers after writing an opinion in a magazine. What particularly disturbs him is the hysteria and laziness in numerous discussions. "Lying hard, distorting facts and the unreasonableness in some of the responses eats the most," says Stevelink. In recent years, arable farmer Piet Hermus has also had threats. He is concerned about the climate and its consequences, especially for farmers. In the past few years it has already caused him several death threats in the form of letters, dead mice and a dead rat at the beginning of 2019. source
Politics of Demonization by Serving Own Interests
Australia: Wildlife killer/hunter Jewell Crossberg has been appointed to a position in the Western Australian Department of Biodiversity and Conservation.
USA: Anna Seidman who has worked for over 20 years as a lawyer for Safari Club International (SCI), a group whose main function is to chip away at protections for animals frequently targeted by hunters has been appointed as new representative for the Fish and Wildlife Services (FWS)'s international affairs program.
Prime Minister of Australia
'Recent protests by animal welfare activists on Australian abattoirs and farms and city streets triggered a backlash from meat-lovers and MPs. The activists were labelled "un-Australian" by the Prime Minister and others, and the protests prompted calls for tougher trespass laws and penalties.
Protests have continued more recently, with a Perth restaurant targeted earlier this month.
But it's not just activists who are concerned about animals. A recent report commissioned by the federal Department of Agriculture and Water Resources suggests it's the majority of Australians who care about animal welfare. The report included a survey of 1,521 people: 95% of respondents viewed farm animal welfare with concern, and 91% want reform to address this'. source
Minister of Justice and Security in the Netherlands
Quoting the Minister of Justice and Security in the Netherlands, Ferdinand Grapperhaus (from the political party CDA, false Christians, and who comes from a pig farmer's family): "we have to get these figures (>animal friends) away. Either behind bars, or out of land, or so many fines that they can only run newspaper districts."
He said this at a members' meeting of the pig farmers for the mistreatment of civilians who peacefully resist the horrible way the animals are being treated. He called for theft of their vehicles and said the animal friendly supporters should be maimed with high pressure sprayers (which is hazardous when misdirected, strong enough to damage skin in an instant). Now to make this even more bizarre: animal right groups filed a complaint. Shortly they were informed that citizens cannot file a complaint because Grapperhaus is a minister, making him inviolable for ordinary citizens....
Animal Cruelty in the Krimpenerwaard (the Netherlands), veterinarian life: threats and abuse by hunters, farmers and municipal
Men in balaclavas throw murdered swan baby over the fence of vet
Polder terror against the swans and their protector continues unaffected in the Krimpenerwaard (Netherlands) (source)
again the mute swans and their protector veterinarian / lawyer Saskia
Van Rooy in the Krimpenerwaard are the target of an act of terror,
violence and aggression. Camera footage shows two men in balaclavas
throwing a murdered baby swan over the fence of Saskia's house in
Stolwijk on Thursday night, August 13, 2020 at 1.57 am in order to
threaten and intimidate her with death. The next day, Saskia found the
dead swan baby in front of her house, who had a noticeable illegally
broken neck and several bruises on the legs. Given that the perpetrators
walk on Crocs who usually carry farmers and contractors into the
stable, Saskia suspects that the young perpetrators should be sought in
that direction.... The terror against the swans and their protectors can continue for years
due to a failing provincial and municipal government, which does not
prioritize the control of hunters and farmers in the fight against swans
and other animal species. The toll that Saskia pays for protecting
swans and other animals in court, in the field and in the city council
as Party Chairman of Dierbaar Krimpenerwaard is very high and almost
unbearable. In recent years, Saskia has been severely abused,
threatened, chased and blocked on several occasions by swan-drifters,
but also by hunters, farmers, contractors, swan-haters and their
sympathizers. Saskia's house and car have been pelted several times in
recent years with live swan embryos, swan eggs, chicken eggs, mud and
engine oil. Saskia's car was also sabotaged several times in order to
have her crash.
At the end of 2019, Saskia was also threatened at her house. A dead cat and a pit bale about 2 meters wide had been dumped on the bridge of her house. The silage bale blocked access to / from Saskia's house for three days. The dead cat immediately reminded Saskia of the death threat of a hunter from the Krimpenerwaard Wild Management Unit (Wildbeheereenheid Krimpenerwaard), who had called her "a stray kitten who had to be neutralized or eliminated" during a committee meeting of the city council. For years now, Saskia has been called "Dirty swan whore" almost every week by sympathizers of hunters and farmers; people she often doesn't even know.
Krimpenerwaard Zuid Holland, Van God Los
What kinda corward must a man be to threaten a woman that takes care of animals? These are not men. These are cowards, demons.
Krimpenerwaard is not only a true hell for the animals that live there,
but also for their protector. Bowing to violence and stopping to
protect animals is nevertheless not an option for Saskia.

Vegan Streaker Peter Janssen
For numerous years, on various locations, countries and events the Dutch Peter Janssen peacefully and creatively gave animals a voice by stripping down and running across/in an area of some sort holding a sign or text written on his body. With his actions he hoped the public would become aware of the pain and suffering the animals experience by human exploitation.
Described as a criminal activity in a corrupt world, Peter was given imprisonment for his participation in a mink liberation campaign. Take a look at the mink industry.
(The above picture is not Peter himself) Peter's heart was crushed. Somebody needs to stop this!, most people say. So why judge Peter for doing what you wish was done. The world was angry, called it uncalled for. They see the living beings not as creatures with a heartbeat but as object, as property. Peter saw them for the living breathing beings they are and their suffering.
In 2020, and to everybodies suprise he had set fire to the largest duck slaughterhouse (in Europe!) Duck-To Tomassen. The arrogant owner Gert Jan Tomassen seemed so delighted after the fire that a lot of people suspected he had done it himself as prior to the fire Tomassen
was in the news complaining about his business suffering due to the corona outbreak, where he was pleading for the government to help him out. Peter could probably not live with the knowledge of ducks being cut alive...: 'Obtained inspection reports show that animal suffering continues unabated by duck slaughterer Tomassen Duck-To from Ermelo. Fines have again been imposed, including for fully ducking throats and high mortality from heat stress.'
Compassion is a crime
In this by Satan ruled world, compassion is a crime.
Anita Krajnc is being criminally charged for this very incident, when she gave water to exhausted pigs during a scorching hot day in June this year (source)
At least 164 environmental activists were killed in 2018 alone. The deadliest industries to oppose: mining (43 deaths), agribusiness (21 deaths), and dams and other water resources (17 deaths). Over half of the killings took place in Latin America. "They say we are terrorists, delinquents, assassins and that we have armed groups here, but really they're just killing us," said Joel Raymundo, a member of the Peaceful Resistance of Ixquisis movement.
Another Example of Greed supported by gov with no respect for Life
Many of the thousands of fires burning in Brazil's Amazon are set by ranchers. The Amazon Is Still Burning. Blame Beef. In the lawless heart of the Brazilian Amazon, cattle ranchers and loggers - emboldened by President Jair Bolsonaro - are clearing and burning huge swaths of rainforest every day in the name of progress. And it has a lot to do with beef. Brazil is the world's largest exporter of beef. About half of the cattle are raised on pasture that used to be rainforest. And demand is growing. I'm visiting an annual barbecue and auction near the Jamanxim. But it's not your typical backyard get-together. Some landowners and ranchers here brazenly defy environmental laws. Last year, a government report linked this man, a union leader, to land-grabbing schemes. This woman, head of a national association, was fined for burning 350 acres of rainforest. This man, a local mayor, was caught destroying over 700 acres of virgin rainforest inside the Jamanxim reserve. They all deny wrongdoing. What producers here want is to privatize the reserves, and there's hostility here towards anyone who tries to stop them. source
Butterfly defender murdered
A second man connected with one of Mexico's largest butterfly sanctuaries is dead. The body of Raúl Hernández Romero, 44, was found on Saturday, February 1, with injuries that suggest he had been beaten with a sharp object.
Authorities do not yet know if Hernández Romero's death and the death of Homero Gómez González are related or if the deaths are tied to the men's environmental conservation efforts, The Washington Post reports.
Environmental and human rights campaigners in Latin America literally put their lives on the line in their day-to-day work: Mexican activist Simón Pedro Pérez López was dedicated to protecting nature and fighting for the indigenous communities of Chiapas state. He was recently targeted in a drive-by shooting - gunned down before the eyes of his son. source
More than four land and environment defenders were killed every week in 2019
Most killings went unpunished and the true number of deaths is likely to be much higher as many go undocumented.
A record number of environmental activists were murdered in 2020
More than 200 environmental activists were killed worldwide last year. According to the British human rights organization Global Witness, never before have so many activists been killed. "Usually, indigenous people defending their ancestral lands are targeted."
Most conservationists and environmentalists were killed in Colombia: 65. In Mexico, the number of confirmed deaths is 30, followed by the Philippines with 29 and Brazil with 20.
"2020 was the worst year to date.
Aggression against environmental and human rights activists has increased sharply," said Lourdes Castro of the Colombian organization Somos Defensores. The actual number is likely higher, according to the human rights organization, due to unreported or misrepresented cases, especially in Africa. In 2019, at least 212 environmental activists were killed worldwide.
Especially forestry Mainly behind the acts of violence are companies, farmers and, in some cases, governments.
But criminal gangs, paramilitary groups and rebels are also killing activists.
Globally, most of the killings of environmentalists were related to forestry, followed by water and dam construction projects and agriculture, according to the Global Witness report. source
Cambodia: Ten years in prison for protecting nature
We see it again and again - activists in the global South take serious risks to protect nature. Our young friends from Mother Nature Cambodia put their futures on the line - all six are behind bars and face sentences of up to ten years. Their "crime": peacefully campaigning for the preservation of Tamok lake near Phnom Penh. The wetlands were placed under protection in 2016, but have since been carved up and filled in step by step and handed over to property developers. "These outrageous charges are a blatant attempt to silence and intimidate not only Mother Nature Cambodia, but an entire generation of Cambodian youth who have dared to stand up for human rights and environmental justice," says Ming Yu Hah of Amnesty International. source
Dutch politician calls for violence against animal friends
2020 - in the Netherlands: Ferdinand Grapperhaus, a Dutch politician (from the political party CDA, false Christians) serving as Minister of Justice and Security who (he comes from a pig farmer's family) called out at a members' meeting of the pig farmers for the mistreatment of civilians who peacefully resist the horrible way the animals are being treated. He called for theft of their vehicles and said the animal friendly supporters should be maimed with high pressure sprayers.
Pressure washers can cause serious injuries including lacerations, punctures, and eye damage. Based on the latest data, it's estimated pressure washers send more than 6-thousand people a year to emergency rooms
(source) On December 5, 12 (animal interest) organizations and 122 people reported the minister. The declaration contains three complaints.
First, the minister calls for theft (the cars of activists) to be committed, and second, for the mistreatment of animal activists (the high-pressure sprayer).
Third, Grapperhaus's statements incite hatred, discrimination or violence against animal rights activists, and are deliberately insulting. On January 6 came the message that Grapperhaus made his statements from his position as minister of security and justice and is thus inviolable for ordinary citizens. That is why the organizations converted the declaration into a complaint.
The committee decides in July 2020 on the matter, stating: "The defendant seems to identify strongly with the pig farmers present and to make animal extremists and activists a common enemy." (source) The Advisory Committee also acknowledges that statements ("load activists' cars on a flat cart and take them with you") and ("With a high pressure gun you can chase off the activist") can be interpreted as aggressive. "The defendant has [...] charged with serious suspicion of partiality, which is not in line with his position as Minister of Justice and Security for all Dutch people."
That is the decision of the Ministry of Justice and Security in response to the complaint that 12 organizations and 118 people filed against the Minister of Justice and Security, F.B.J. Grapperhaus (the accused), because of his remarks at the General Members' Meeting of the Producer Organization for Pig Farming (POV).
Dutch Politician Ferdinand Grapperhaus: Gluttony, Pride, Lies.
Liar 'Grapperhaus denied before that he had withheld from the House of Representatives a sensitive report on influencing senior officials. The report discusses the improper modification and removal of research results from the Justice and Security Inspectorate. In total, seven whistleblowers reported improper influence in 2017. Among other things, there were reports of abuses at the Immigration and Naturalization Service (IND). For example, torture videos and child pornography were found on asylum seekers' telephones, but no actions were taken'.
Grapperhaus once again caught lying. While calling everybody an asshole who does not follow the corona rules, such as sticking to the 1.5 meter distance, his wedding pictures showed he did not do so himself, nor his guests. At all. But everybody else can get a big fine AND a criminal record. And is an asshole according to this obese turd.

Virunga National Park confirms the deaths of 6 Park Rangers in an attack by armed assailants on the morning of Sunday 10th January 2021
(source) 1 other Ranger was seriously wounded in the assault. The Ranger has been evacuated to hospital in Goma and his injuries are no longer considered life-threatening.
At approximately 07.30am local time, the Rangers were ambushed while on foot patrol inside the Park. The attack took place near Kabuendo, which is located near the border of the Park, in the Central sector, between Nyamilima and Niamitwitwi. Preliminary investigations indicate that the Rangers were taken by surprise and had no opportunity to defend themselves, and that those responsible for the attack are local Mai-Mai groups.
The identities of the Rangers who lost their lives are:
BURHANI ABDOU Surumwe, aged 30 years
KAMATE MUNDUNAENDA Alexis, aged 25 years
MANENO KATAGHALIRWA Reagan, aged 27 years
KIBANJA BASHEKERE Eric, aged 28 years

Virunga National Park deeply regrets the tragic loss of life among its Rangers, who work tirelessly and with dedication to protect both the Park and the neighbouring communities from the tyranny of armed groups. Their sacrifice will not be forgotten nor be in vain.
The Rangers of the Congolese Institute for the Conservation of Nature are agents of the Congolese State. They do not have military status and their actions do not fall under the law of conflict. All efforts will be undertaken to bring the perpetrators to justice and sustain the rule of law within the Park.
Virunga National Park remains committed to delivering development initiatives that benefit local people and the wider region, and to working in partnership with local communities to bring peace and prosperity to many millions of people whose lives have for too long been blighted by conflict and the activities of armed groups.
The thoughts and prayers of everyone at Virunga National Park are with the families and friends of all the victims, as well as the injured Ranger.

The Virunga National Park (Parc National des Virunga), in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, is 7,800-square-kilometres (3,000 sq mi) stretching from the Virunga Mountains in the South, to the Rwenzori Mountains in the North, bordering Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda and Rwenzori Mountains National Park and Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda.
The park was established in 1925 as Africa's first national park and is a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site since 1979. In recent years poaching and the Congo Civil War have seriously damaged its wildlife population. The park is managed by the Congolese National Park Authorities, the Institut Congolais pour la Conservation de la Nature (ICCN) and its partner the Virunga Foundation.
The Institut Congolais pour la Conservation de la Nature (ICCN) is a Congolese governmental partner tasked with the protection and conservation of the Virunga National Park and Kahuzi-Biega National Park, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Members of the ICCN are charged with the overall protection of the parks and the endangered Mountain Gorilla.

Modern Slave Trade
Jill Phipps was a British animal rights activist. She lived in Coventry, England. On 1 February 1995, Jill was crushed to death under the wheels of a lorry carrying live baby veal calves into Coventry Airport in Baginton, England, to be flown to Amsterdam for distribution across Europe. 10 of the 33 protesters present had broken through police lines and were trying to bring the lorry to a halt by sitting in the road or chaining themselves to it.
Jill was crushed beneath the lorry's wheels and her fatal injuries included a broken spine. Phipps' brother Zab commented: "Jill was crushed and died on the way to hospital. Our mother, Nancy, was with her. The lorry driver has not been charged, not even with driving without due care and attention." source
2020 Lynn Simpson, a former veterinarian on livestock export ships, has been a vocal critic of the long-distance ship trade.
She's witnessed cattle forced to stand on hard floors for weeks on end, sick, injured animals left to die, and sheep literally cooking from the inside with their "fat melted and like a translucent jelly".
"Some animals are held on decks for as long as 40 days, living on hard decking of concrete and metal. They [the animals] are not built to cope with these environments," said Simpson.

In loving memory of Mike Hill
At 4.00 pm Saturday 9th February, 1991 Mike Hill became the first hunt saboteur to be killed whilst trying to protect wildlife. Mike was only 18 and for two years lived and breathed animal rights, not just dogs and cats but every living creature. He was a vegan, worked at both Heavens Gate Sanctuary and Freshfields Animal Rescue Centre and was an active sab with Yeovil sabs and Merseyside sabs.
Mike was to nice a person for this world. There was no hurt nor malice in his soul. He thought good of everyone and everything. He was quite, unassuming, softly spoken and gentle. He lived and died for his beliefs.
At 4 p.m. Saturday 9th February, Mike Hill was killed in action whilst attempting to sabotage the Cheshire Beagles with the Merseyside Hunt Saboteurs. This article attempts to put the facts before the animal rights movement and to dispel some of the downright lies, distortions and rumours that have been put forward by the police, the press and some 'officials' in national animal rights groups. Please feel free to copy all or part of this in any suitable publication.
The Cheshire Beagles met at the Red Lion, Little Budworth, Cheshire (just down the road from Oulton Park Motorcycle Racecourse). All afternoon there were repeated scuffles with hunters, punches thrown at saboteurs and a wheel brace was used against one Liverpool sab. Towards the end of the day, still with no kill under their belts that day, the huntsmen boxed up hounds in the small blue trailer which was being t
The three sabs, terrified, trying to keep a grip and wondering where these huntsmen were going to take them (and what for) decided that as soon as the vehicle slowed down enough or halted at a junction, they would jump and rung like hell. Unfortunately, it would appear that Mike panicked and, in fear of his life he took a jump from the pick-up as it rounded a bend, having slowed down to what they thought to be about 40 m.p.h. He failed to clear the truck properly and was caught between the truck and trailer which crushed him.
The huntsman would not stop but carried on for a further mile, only halting when the second hunt sab smashed in the back window into the cab. The sab was attacked with a whip as he tried to stop the vehicle. As soon as it stopped, the sab ran back the mile to where Mike's prone body lay in the road whilst another sab, ran to a nearby house to call the ambulance. The huntsman, Alan Summersgill, simply drove off, flagged down a police car shortly after and later in the afternoon handed himself into a police station.
Let us make no mistake, Mike's death was the culmination of the trends over the last 10 years of hunt sabbing on the Cheshire Beagles (and indeed trends that are echoed all over the country with other packs). Firstly, there is a sustained level of violence against sabs and secondly a complete absence of police interest in this violence. There has been not one single prosecution by the Cheshire Police for any of the attacks on hunt saboteurs by the Cheshire Beagles over the last ten years, the worst of which resulted in a Liverpool University student receiving a triple fractured jaw.
It would appear not. No charges have yet been proffered against the two huntsmen. Summersgill still walks the street. To our knowledge, the only statements the police have offered to the press indicate that they regard it as a 'road traffic accident'. The killing of Mike Hill has devastated his family, his friends, hunt saboteur groups all over the country and at Freshfields Animal Rescue Centre and Heavens Gate Sanctuary. (source)
In Loving Memory of Tom Worby
In 1993 Tom Worby, aged just 15, was killed by huntsman Tony Ball at the closing meet of the Cambridgeshire Foxhounds at Low Farm near Gravesley in Cambridgeshire. The child killer Ball was never charged or convicted for this unlawful killing. source
a little note
Industries who make profit of exploiting and or killing animals, do not care about them.
They do not care about humans either, they care about their wallet.
If you want to harm them, harm their wallet.
Freedom Fighter Barry Horn
Barry Horne was an animal liberationist who died in a UK prison hospital on November 5th 2001. He had been sentenced to 18 years in prison for a campaign of economic sabotage, carrying out criminal damage and arson attacks against companies involved in the vivisection, leather and fur industries.
"I want to go back to that 3rd hunger strike because nothing was ever the same after that. Barry had gone on this hunger strike with more determination than ever.
He'd recently been slammed with an 18 year prison sentence.
I remember sitting in court, at his sentencing, and letting out a sigh of relief when the prosecution accepted that he had never intended to endanger or harm anyone but then the judge just carried on regardless with a savagely long sentence.
Barry never took anything lying down and carried on fighting from within prison. He knew that he had the strength and determination to take a hunger strike to its limits if necessary.
There would be no backing down on this one unless the goverment delivered on its pre-election promises.He set out to make a major breakthrough in the institutionalized support of vivisection and he was going to use his own life as the bargaining chip. Tony Blair had made promises and Barry was simply taking him to task for it. If they ignored his demand to hold a total review of the vivisection industry then his death would be on their hands, to add to the millions of animal victims.In the infamous catalogue of lies "New Labour, New Life" they promised amongst other things to hold a Royal Commission into vivisection. For many it was a surprise to see Barry getting involved with politics but once again it soon became clear that he had a much wider vision than that - he wanted to send a clear message out to us - his friends - that in order to fight for animal liberation it was always necessary to make sacrifices and here he was showing that he was prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice.By the time the hunger strike had reached day 60, the Home Office again agreed to meet with Barry's representatives. Barry's health was rapidly declining, but this time he remained on hunger strike for over a week longer, not believing they were promising anything new.There was a final communication by fax from Labour MP Kerry Pollard on the 66th day of the hunger strike, promising a parliamentary consultative body. At this stage Barry became very ill and confused and was moved from York Hospital, where he was surrounded by friends and loved ones, back to the isolation of prison and subjected to normal "A Cat" prison visiting conditions.Immediately George Howarth, the then Home Office minister responsible for animal experiments, stepped in to tell the media that Barry's hunger strike had been a hoax and "We have not been negotiating with Barry Horne. Nothing has been offered. The Minister always made it clear the government would not give in to blackmail. "There has been no concession, no negotiation, no deal". Barry never recovered from the effects of that hunger strike and he died because of it. Nothing was ever heard from the all party animal welfare investigation.
"The fight is not for us, not for our personal wants or needs. It is for every animal that has ever suffered and died in the vivisection labs, and for every animal that will suffer and die in those same labs unless we end this evil business now. The souls of the tortured dead cry out for justice, the cry of the living is for freedom. We can create that justice and we can deliver that freedom. The animals have no-one but us, we will not fail them." Barry. Sept 1998" source
269 Libération Animale Activists
Despite the repression against the activists, direct actions by autonomous and anarchists groups like blockades, liberations and sabotages must continue. The are various symbols and structures of the speciesist domination that can be targeted, it is a question of daring and putting into practice our ideas, complicities, knowledge and ingenuity in terms of strategy. This offensive perspective of "269 Libération Animale" collective endorses antispeciesism as a political struggle.
It is a struggle for animal liberation but more generally against all systems of domination. Praxis is inherent in this vision of antispeciesism, - revolutionary - and built with the oppressed unlike many "animal rights' associations" that shed light on humans and compassion.
We think that we cannot lead the antispeciesist struggle without direct confrontations against the speciesist system itself and we do not consider the State and capitalism as allies in this struggle.
Indeed, strategies involving them always lead to authoritarian measures that strengthen the control of the State on the lives of the animals like laws and decrees that reform the speciesist system instead of abolishing it. This cooperation is fake, does not reflect our values and is a complete betrayal of the animals. We want to use direct action in order to impact directly the speciesist system of domination and the capitalist production tools. We do not aim to raise public awareness but to cause concrete impacts : economic damage, liberations, geographical activism with the creation of sanctuaries. We refuse to collaborate with the institutional and capitalist power hoping to get little reforms that allow big associations to win members and followers but that abandon our comrades to their fate !
The whole system must be changed, not only a law article

"Comments on video of dying pigs
I'm so tired that I can barley talk but felt like I needed to make this video. I've posted some videos of dying pigs lately on Instagram and I've received a lot of angry comments and messages. I don't have time to answer them all and decided to talk about it in this video."- from Martina's page.
Everybody must do something. Can do something. One records the suffering, the thoughest job of all, the other liberates, the other smashes killing gear designed for murder. All is good. Without the pictures footage undercover works veganism would not be on the rise. People need to be informed, they cannot change if they do not know what they are doing wrong.
