HAM BUS TARGETED WITH PAINT

"Last saturday we saw that a truck had arrived to our city, it was givingaway pieces of pig legs (ham) for people to eat for free, there was “HamPassion Tour” written all over it, so we decided to investigate online. It turns out that this Tour is funded by the European Union, and itsobjective is to promote the so called “mediterranean diet” by takingthis truck to several cities of the continent and the UK. We saw this truck as a clear symbol of speciesism and exploitation, so we decided to throw some balloons filled with red paint at it, we also threw some leaflets explaining...

ONE YEAR AFTER THE SABOTAGE OF THE PERLY SLAUGHTERHOUSE

Read below a text sent to us on the incarceration of Matthias, the slaughterhouse sabotage action in Switzerland last year and a call to action to show Matthias isn’t alone:  Exactly one year ago, following the Geneva march for the end of speciesism, activists targeted the canton's largest chicken slaughterhouse, temporarily disabling it and destroying the killing chain, computers, and the entire stock of speciesist "goods", thus causing a direct attack on the murder economy of several tens of thousands of francs.(991,856 hens killed in 2018 in the canton, 8,000~ per week in this slaughterhouse,...

WET’SWET’EN TERRITORY UNDER ATTACK – SO CALLED ‘CANADA’ DECLARES WAR AGAINST INDIGENOUS PEOPLE IN FAVOUR OF GAS COMPANIES.

The fuckface, only-good-for-photos, Justin Trudeau is allowing the invasion of indigenous land in the Wet’swet’en territory and applying an injunction in favour of the gas companies planning to build a gianormous fucking pipeline to transport gas and further climate change.  The Wet’swet’en nation, made of five different regions, has actively opposed the construction of the pipeline through their land, and two of the groups have actively set up check points and soft blockades to ensure that the territory is safe. Today, after bringing heavy militarised police as well as actual army,...

HAMBACHER FORST – THE EVICTION HAS STARTED. 

Yesterday it was announced that the eviction in Hambacher Forst had to start today for the safety of the activists as the occupation is a fire hazard. It is of no surprise that RWE workers took all fire extinguishers they could find last week. This morning, police is everywhere. Gallien is surrounded by cops, Oaktown doesn’t seem to have any police presence and monopods and tripods are starting to be vacated. Heavy machinery on the other hand is stuck at the entrance of the forest. It is raining, and thanks to the past attacks by the police there is more mud than green on the ground. The...
