Spain: 20 Rabbits liberated by Animal Liberation Front in solidarity with anarchist prisoners
In recent years in Spain, especially in Catalonia, rabbit farming has been severely affected by the economic crisis and many farms have closed over the past five years.
Several times we have found while observing potential targets that security for the farms have been abandoned.
Similarly we can also verify that the number of Animal Liberation actions in the Spanish state has reduced since the crisis began. This is most likely due to a lack of resources by the people who take part in this struggle along with a migration to other struggles by many people.
But on the night of September 20th, 2015 we abandoned our temporary lethargy and went to a rabbit farm located in the province of Barcelona and liberated 20 animals that were imprisoned in it.
This time it was only 20 but we hope that in the future there will be more actions and that we can free many more animals that are harmed by this murderous industry. We believe that now is the perfect time to strike crushing blows against this industry that has barely survived for several years.
We are aware that this depends on both our organizational capacity and our determination but we have seen effective campaigns that have happened in other places so we believe that we can close the few farms that currently remain.
We dedicate this action to the anarchists who have faced repression by the operations "Pandora" and "Pinata" as well as those accused of belonging to "Commando Mateo Morral."
We also send a warm hug to Evi Statiri, who at the time of this writing has ended her hunger strike due to the Greek authorities accepting her release.
