Activists Shrug Off New Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act
Illegal Direct Action Appears to be on the Increase, Animals Benefit
North America: Numerous anonymous communiques have been received by the North American Animal Liberation Press Office in the last week, including those mocking the new Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA) passed by Congress last month, and others signaling support for jailed animal liberation prisoners. Below are selected excerpts from the messages received :
"Greetings from México. Two FLA (Frente de Liberación Animal) strikes very early this morning in Monterrey, Nuevo León. The first target was a big fur store, where all locks and doors were glued, threw paint bombs and wrote "Frente de Liberación Animal", "Muerte" and "Cada Piel es una Muerte". The second target was a KFC, that was painted with paint bombs. In Support of all ALF and ELF cells and dedicated to the SHAC 7."
"in a well coordinated action, 487 bottles of pom wonderful juices were tampered with along the Eastern seaboard in stores like wild oats, d'agostino's and food emporiums. those who drink the contaminated juice won't die like the animals in pom labs, but the diarrhea, vomiting and headaches will hopefully send a strong message that people will no longer allow innocent defenseless animals to be tormented and killed for a health juice and to line the pockets of profiteers who dont have feelings for those weaker than they are....thanks to feinstein and inhoff and the stupid animal enterprise terrorist law that violates the principles that this country is supposed to be founded on, more and more activists like us will choose to retreat into the shadows and fight for the animals underground"
"a group of indivuals went to the lower east side of manhattan and glued and tampered with the locks of every fur, leather, and wool store on orchard street between delancey street and houston street. There are dozens of stores profiting off of animal suffering in this three block stretch and our group tryed to glue every one of the locks. This is the one of many actions against the buisnesses that profit off of animal exploitation."
"Last night we gave an early Christmas present to around two hundred and fifty of our friends at the Griggstown Quail Farm in Princeton, NJ. After clipping through the fencing we cut out large sections of the canopy covering three pens, then flushed several hundred quail, phesants, and partridges out into the starry sky and freedom. The farm is located by a waterway and open fields,and we wish our friends the best of luck in establishing new lives. To the animal abuse industry, welcome to post-Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act America: not one damn bit different. Putting the Crime back in Christmas since 1984...This action dedicated to the SHAC 7"

"When a person places the proper value on freedom, there is nothing under the sun that she will not do to acquire that freedom. Whenever you hear a person saying he wants freedom, but in the next breath she is going to tell you what she won't do to get it, or what he doesn't believe in doing in order to get it, he doesn't believe in freedom. A person who believes in freedom will do anything under the sun to acquire...or preserve his freedom."-- Malcolm X
