29 Rabbits Liberated From a Factory Farm in Barcelona
On the night of April 13, 2013, Animal Liberation Front activists opened the cages of thirty rabbits who were to be killed in a few days. The initial goal was to get many more out, but when we arrived we saw that because of their enormous size and weight it would be impossible to liberate the number we had thought, so with great effort we carried away our backpacks full of our new and surprised friends.
If you’ve ever seen the terrified eyes of an animal in a cage and then felt their heart beating next to yours at the time of their release, you know exactly the meaning of Animal Liberation. After seeing them locked in small cages without soil, and then later see them walk and feel the wild life, you know that while you have strength, you won’t stop fighting for Total Liberation.
We’re not going to ask for their cages to be larger or comfortable.
We’re not going to ask that the conditions in which they are tortured in experiments are ‘improved,’
We’re not going to ask that when they are killed, that it be done ‘humanely’… Continue reading
Genocidal warfare is still being waged against the traditional and full-blood Lakota people, and to end it, we need your attention and support right now!

Stand up, and fight back in New Orleans! ALEC is hosting their annual summit at the Marriott in New Orleans from August 1-6th. We will meet them there to let them know they can’t pull the strings from the behind the curtain any more!
What Is ALEC?
They meet in secret. They write our laws. And they want us silent.
ALEC is a conservative think-tank run by right-wing politicians and corporate members from within the banking, pharmaceutical, prison, deportation, big oil and gas industries, amongst others.
The text for anti-immigrant laws such as SB 1070 came from ALEC model legislation. The Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA, originally titled the Animal and Environmental Terrorism Act), which is currently being used to target and criminalize activism, came from ALEC. In the Midwest, the attack on public servants had the same source. In Wisconsin and Ohio, ALEC is promoting voter ID laws that will disproportionately disenfranchise students. In Indiana, ALEC provided the text for a state resolution calling for an end to much federal environmental regulation. Laws which favor profits for the prison industrial complex such as mandatory minimum laws and 3-strikes-yer-out were all drafted by ALEC and its members. In 2009 alone, ALEC was behind over 800 laws written for state governments. Laws which are designed to create profit for private corporations and politicians from the criminalization, incarceration and deportation of people, the separation of families and the systematic destruction of the environment.
