the Libera Front the Animal Liberation Front
The year 2004 saw actions in more countries than ever before. In 18 countries, the Animal Liberation Front and other direct action activists rescued animals from abuse, and attacked the buildings, vehicles and machinery that make the abuse possible. In 2004, activists in North America and Western Europe continued their strong traditions of direct action, but the year also saw actions in parts of the world that have not seen action in recent years, if ever before, such as Argentina, Turkey and Israel! Although the actions are spread throughout the world against many animal abuse industries, one ALF cell made the message clear: “to all who victimize the innocent: We’re watching. And by axe, drill, or crowbar — we’re coming through your door. Stop or be stopped.”

In 2004, close to 3,000* animals were rescued from battery cages, broiler (meat) farms, vivisection labs, and from farms breeding animals for animal research and the pet trade. Animals rescued included: Chickens (primarily hens): 916 Rabbits: 696 Rats: 556 Mice: 540+ Geese: 48 Dogs (mostly beagles): 47 Ducks: 26 Gerbils: 26 Turkeys: 25 Finches: 5 Chinchillas: 4 Hamsters: 3 Doves: 2 Ferret: 1 Pigs: 1
Almost 15,000 animals— 9310 mink, two foxes, one raccoon, 20 stags, 5000 pheasants, and an unspecified number of partridges and other wild birds— were released from cages, and given a chance to escape certain death, at fur farms and hunting estates. In addition, frogs and crows were liberated from vivisection labs in Russia, and in the UK the Lobster Liberation Front sabotaged a fishing boat, smashed pots and returned 30 lobsters and three crabs to the sea. *This list is not complete. The numbers of animals rescued in an action are not always reported; many other actions are never reported at all.

Russian activists continued to impress us in 2004. Being an animal in a vivisection lab in Moscow has become a lot brighter. In six separate actions, activists entered Moscow State University and other vivisection labs in the city, and liberated 246 frogs, 204 rats, 6 rabbits and an unknown number of ravens and crows. Two foxes and a raccoon were also released from hunter’s cages outside Moscow.
Argentine activists. In November, one rabbit was rescued from horrible conditions at a pet store in Buenos Aires. In December, 12 rabbits and 13 hens were liberated from a farm outside the capital city. We’re hoping for great things in 2005!
Doing away with the mask. Open rescue activists in Germany, Sweden, Austria, Australia and a few other countries rescued hundreds of chickens, ducks, geese and a piglet from factory farms in 2004.
In a possible attempt to stock their own Ark, activists in Pennsylvania liberated beagles, chinchillas, gerbils, hamsters, rats, mice and a ferret from an agricultural school.
When the ALF liberated 47 animals from W.B. Saul High School’s Laboratory Animal & Meat Science Program, they claimed the action in an 1,100 word news release.
In April, 6500 mink were released from their cages at a fur farm in northwest Spain. The farmer estimated 300,000 Euros in damages.
Proving that laboratory raids are still very much a possibility, the ALF liberated 88 mice and 313 rats from the University of Iowa in a meticulously planned and carefully executed action.
By our count, there were 554 acts of sabotage in defense of animals worldwide in 2004, an average of 1 ½ per day*.
