A new Zone A Defendre has been set up in Switzerland in order to stop the expansion of a mine digging for the production of cement.
Sitting within a forested hill, the plans to expand the mine would incur in the destruction of biodiversity and the murder of uncountable animals for the profit of a single multinational.
For that reason, people have come together to create a space to live, experiment and fight against the capital and all business that attempt to harm the environment. They need help, and you can help them.
La ZAD is an open community where people can come and go, build structures, donate food and warm clothing or simply organise against Holcim. If you like what you hear and want to be part of it, it is your time to take action.
Join La ZAD de la Colline and fight to protect whatever is left to the wild.
“Later this month the moose hunting season starts in large parts of Sweden. Thousands and thousands of moose will be shot to death in the Scandinavian wilderness. Three towers were toppled and sabotaged by den svenska djurrättsmilisen (the Swedish animal rights militia). Hopefully it will save some animal lives, but at least it will make it harder for the psychopaths to murder them.
Two messages were left on wooden boards that were ripped off a tower: ‘Nästa gång dödar vi er. //DRM (English: Next time we’ll kill you. //ARM)’ and ‘Älgarna ska leva (English: The moose shall live!)’.
“Emilia Romagna, Italy. A hunting house and a hunting post were destroyed, a boat was seriously damaged and 18 mallards were rescued from an amusement park for mentally deviated psychopaths (hunters). Now the mallards, who were detained as live decoy, have been entrusted to wonderful facilities where they can live free and happy. No respite for the killers.”
“It’s that time of year again… Under the cover of darkness we arrived at a farm known to have Turkeys on site. Turkeys destined for someone’s christmas dinner… no fucking way, not on our watch. After seeking out 16 homes for our feathery friends, we crossed two fields towards to the enclosure where they were kept, stopping only to hide when an upstairs light on the farm house went on. One human remained on lookout whilst the rest packed 16 turkeys into the carriers. They were stubborn and larger than we anticipated, these were fast growers and had already put on a load of weight since we checked out the site before. Once we were fully loaded, we struggled across the two fields with full crates and arms full of turkeys. This was slower than our way in and our presence was enough to alert the cows in the field. Loud moo-ing and alarms calls soon followed. Lights came on in the buildings nearby. Our only thought at this point could be getting these birds to safety, like hell were we getting caught and having them taken back. Thankfully, we made it. All 16 will live full, happy lives.
Now is the time for turkey rescue, before it’s too late!”
“We saw someone had done in this pizza hut window before and how after replacing the glass the shop had written ‘vegan options here’ where the broken glass used to be. We knew then that it had to be done again. Our allegiance to the animals this company exploits, the environment this company pollutes and the staff they use can not be so easily bought.
We thought of Waka that day. A young man who died fighting alongside the YPG two years ago and who is missed by many. Including those who never met him but are touched by the actions he took to defend animals, both human and non human, and the planet we all inhabit.
We know a broken window is hardly enough to honour his memory and all the he lived and died for. But a broken window can turn into something much more. This is a call for all of us to see what Waka saw, that each injustice leads to another and we must challenge all of them. We must stop waiting for a saviour that will never arrive and get shit done ourselves. Occupy a tree to stop it being cut down, steal everything you can from the scummy corporations that fuck us all over, sab the hunters, open cages, fight to get rid of the borders killing so many.
To all our comrades, dead and alive, we stand together.
“Inspired by our fellow activists abroad, this was something we really liked, so went ahead and do research on the websites mentioned. With this add hack we honor the two year anniversary of Roses Law, and with the quote “All Animals Need Protection Under The Law” we honor Regan Russel who was murdered by a slaughterhouse truck driver.
