“In the early hours of the 25th June 2020, ALF Ireland members entered the country estate of Castledillon which resides in County Armagh. This estate is used as a duck-hunt excursion by the family who own the land. There is one area within the estate in which ducks are encouraged to ‘house’ themselves, so that they are in the right locations in the day time for people to shoot.
The ALF Ireland activists took it upon themselves to relocate the thirty-five ducks that were in the vicinity at that point in time, but believe there are possibly more than 200 residing in the estate. These ducks were then moved to a private pre-agreed location in which they have their own lake, free from maniacs pointing guns at them.
Two hunt huts were also gutted and dismantled on the grounds of the property. The Castledillon Estate have their own website in which people can book hunt excursions on their land – in season – in which we would like to see taken down or dismantled in the same way their physical attributes on the estate were dismantled.
The ALF Ireland activists will not cease their actions against the Castledillon Estate until all the ducks are relocated and the owners cease using animals to satisfy people’s blood lust.
Until all are free, none are free. Tiochfaidh ár lá.”

On June 21st we gained access to the Randall Parker slaughterhouse, near Andover in the UK. Every single tyre on every single vehicle was slashed: 13 articulated lorries and two cabs, over 80 tyres in total. All of the vehicles were put out of action, including two from Sainsburys which were already pulled up to the loading bay, waiting to be filled with murdered corpses. As we worked, we could hear the pigs inside the building, crying out as they await a death worse than our wildest nightmares. Our remorse that we had to leave them behind is only equal to our remorse that we could not have disabled the truck which murdered Regan.
We grew up on stories of the ALF, and we waited too long for them to come and help us. But now we realise, we are the ALF. All of us. And there are more of us than there are slaughterhouses. After generations of oppression, our generation will break this chain.
“In the dark of night we found a hatchery full of thousands of newly hatched chicks, who in just over a month would be killed for their flesh. The shed was brightly lit even in the early hours of the morning.
One of our comrades squeezed through a small hole in one of the wooden sheds, and passed 14 chicks through to safety. We were in and out very quickly and ran away into the cover of night.
We thought we would make a cute video which features the chicks being carried away, and playing so we hope you enjoy it!
Our thoughts are with Regan Russell. Action is needed in her memory. Keep fighting for total liberation.”
“!It is time that we send a clear message to exploiters. Your time is up. Your reign of terror will come to an end. We will burn your slaughterhouses, we will destroy your death trucks and we will make your lives a living nightmare.
Recently in Alberta, a butcher shop & “livestock” hauling company were targeted. This butcher shop murders pigs who are raised on their small family farm. These people are a family of killers. The butcher shop was redecorated with the truth “PIG KILLERS”, every single lock glued, including their van and destroyed their refrigeration system. The trucking company targeted takes thousands of cows to their execution, year after year. These drivers have no regard for non human or human life. They have tried to run humans over, time and time again. They brag about trying to kill people and view sentient beings as dollar signs and targets. Approximately 15 trailers were damaged. Every hose was cut on each trailer, the back gate chains cut, a message letting them know the ALF stopped by, building locks glued and their building spray painted. Economic sabotage hits these monsters where it hurts the most, their profits.
PIG KILLERS & DEATH ROW TRUCKERS, you are being watched.
In honour of Jill Phipps & Regan Russell.
Because buying veggie bacon will not save animals or end this injustice.”
“At 2AM the team arrived at the facility to document the rights violations that are being inflicted upon these innocent and beautiful individuals. While scouting the perimeter they found wheelie bins stuffed with the deceased victims of this shit-hole.
When they entered one of the main buildings they were met with the stench of death and ammonia, so much so that their eyes were stinging and weeping,
At approximately 5am the team had completed what they needed to do and went outside to grab some fresh air and to consolidate all of their gear into one bag. A few moments later they entered the building again with empty bags and gently and respectfully helped a group who they had noticed to be a little bit of a duck gang into the bags.
They all left together as one gang, the driver was called and the Duck gang were delivered to their new place of safety a few days later.”
“Filled with rage at the news that a comrade had been murdered by a slaughterhouse truck driver, we took a very small portion of it out on this butcher shop, a place set on profiting no matter how much blood is spilt on the way. We cannot leave these places untouched, COST THEM, make it hurt.
We dedicate this action to Regan Russell, who thought doing something was better than nothing. We will remember you, the struggle continues and we will not let up. We’ve seen the call to #SavePigs4Regan and we’d like to expand on it. This is a call to action to DO SOMETHING. Target these places every way we can, #SmashButchers4Regan.
In case you’re wondering, this is the address of the place we visited: Choice Cuts, 95 Preston Drove BN1 6LD.
The Animal Liberation Front has claimed responsibility for an arson attack in the early hours of May 28 at the duck slaughterhouse Tomassen Duck-to in Ermelo. Five trucks and two trailers were completely destroyed. Activists also attempted to start a fire inside the slaughterhouse.
In the claim of responsibility, sent anonymously to Vrije Dier, activists explained that their goal was to hit an “already weakened duck industry.” They added, “We are aware of the danger of arson, but the daily murder of innocent animals has to end.”
EDITOR’S NOTE: Since the action, a person gave themselves up claiming to be responsible for the arson and is now waiting trial. We will update legal information and support groups when we know more.
“The turkeys that will be murdered for Christmas dinners were born about three weeks ago. Taking advantage of the obvious size difference, we decided to pay a visit to a “free range” farm and take fifty of them with us.
We walked by sheds full of pigs, ducks and broilers until we saw a shed labeled “Turkey chicks”. Job done. As the shed was locked, we used the bolt cutters to cut the padlock and open the shed. We made sure not to leave the padlock behind, so to avoid leaving any tool marks in the farm. A quick check to ensure the door is not alarmed and we are in, and whilst someone keeps guard outside, the rest load fifty turkey chicks in bags.
With a single heat lamp in the whole shed, they are all crammed in the same spot. They have been debeaked. There is still blood on the face of many of them. How fucking unnecessary and cruel can they be? To literally cut their beaks off you have to be some seriously evil scumbag. Sadly the tool cannot be found. It would’ve been nice to break it.
Once they are all loaded in the bags, we head outside and walk away into the night, with another fifty comrades that will have a chance in life.
We want to dedicate this action to Regan Russell, murdered under the truck wheels in front of a Toronto slaughterhouse, and we are hoping from our comrades worldwide to wake up to the reality that animal liberation is a war. Regan, like Jill or Mike, fell martyr in the fight for animal liberation. Don’t let their names be forgotten and fight back the oppressor until we win.
May the sad and frustration turn into flames for liberation.
“We visited an industrial egg farm; there were usually thousands of hens inside. This time the barn was empty of birds. Hens live a short life before egg production slows, then they’re sent to slaughter. It looked like the F’harmers were getting ready for the next batch of slaves to exploit.
This was the perfect opportunity for a bit of financial sabotage, with the barns set up with expensive machinery and no chance of causing casualties to any hens….
So with the help of some hefty tools and spray paint, we smashed fuck out of the shed! We bust off the hatch doors, slashed the egg conveyor belt, cut the water and feeding lines down, spray painted the inside and outside walls, we broke into the control room, smashed the control panel, smashed the windows, and the icing on the cake.. we set off the fire extinguisher to fill up the control room.
That’s gonna hurt them! That’s gonna to cost them!
There’s many ways to fuck up animal exploiters, stinging them economically is an effective strategy. Hitting them again and again. Letting them know what it feels like to be vulnerable, scared and ashamed of the work they do, until they shut down, that’s the aim.
Get active, go out and hit your local animal abusing business and smash fuck out of their profits! Don’t let them remain comfortable while they profit from murder. Get creative and don’t forget to post your hit reports…let’s see what you’ve been up to, let’s inspire each other. If we want to see liberation we’ve gotta work for it. Let’s scare the fuck out of them!”
