Oberon: Arson attack on slaughterhouse

Via BiteBack: “Public notice: As of 02/12/14 the Oberon NSW slaughterhouse will be out of order.

Maintenance work began around 2:00am on the 2nd of December in the roof over the plants main building. Early work was successful, leaving behind only a shadow of the killing machine that originally stood above us. We moved quickly and work best at night anyway, so by the time those who showed up to appreciate our work arrived, we were already on to our next job. We do this for the love of it, the love of liberation, so no payment or gratitude necessary.

Surely this will cause an inconvenience to profiteers of animal abuse, and for this we generously offer any future services to those affected free of charge. No need to leave your name and address, chances are we already know you.

**All workmanship is guaranteed, if for any reason the owners decide to rebuild, we will return to complete all original work.**

Best wishes and happy holidays from your local handymen.
