big win for aussie animal lib groups

Postby akaxo » Sun Aug 05, 2012 8:53 pm

most people are fucking scum but what a bunch of good cunts for pulling this off

they broke into an intensive pig farm and planted cameras and got footage while workers were there. i've seen some pretty fucked up footage of animal abuse over the years but this shit takes the cake. it lead to the farm getting raided and looks like people will be charged over what was going on.

the website they set up with the footage and that has info about it all is here: http://www.aussiepigs.com.au/

ABC news piece on the footage and subsequent raids: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-08-04/a ... ry/4177266

the two groups that coordinated to carry this out: http://animal-lib.org.au/ http://www.al-act.org/

and here's a punk song:

Fucking shocking, but not isolated unfortunately. Cheers for the link.
If we cut up beasts simply because they cannot prevent us and because we are backing our own side in the struggle for existence, it is only logical to cut up imbeciles, criminals, enemies, or capitalists for the same reasons.
--C. S. Lewis (novelist and essayist)

"What I think about vivisection is that if people admit that they have the right to take or endanger the life of living beings for the benefit of many, there will be no limit to their cruelty."

yeah i bet, the oz equivalent of the pork board is trying to say it's an isolated one off but the industry spokespeople say that about every piece of footage that comes out of places like that.

planting cameras in there rather than just filming what they can at night was a stroke of brilliance, the most damning footage wouldn't have been recorded otherwise.

Yep its nice to see some clear thinking for once with positive results. At the risk of making a massive generalisation many animal lib types aren't the brightest bunch when it comes to media relations/actually benefiting animals. Good shit.
