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.
December 2: Oberon Abattoir gutted by fire
A large fire ripped through the Oberon Abattoir early Tuesday morning causing extensive damage to the business, which had only reopened in February this year. Both the Rural Fire Service (RFS) and Oberon Fire and Rescue were called to the Hazelgrove Road blaze at 2.57am. On arrival they found the main building well alight. Inspector Mick Holland from Chifley RFS said there was extensive damage to one of the major buildings. Continue reading “Oberon: Arson attack on slaughterhouse”
Bite Back, 22 October: Early morning Monday 13th October, the Animal Liberation Front and Earth Liberation Front decided to pay a visit to Pepe’s Ducks construction site at Linden Rd. Cunningar, NSW.
Targeting Pepe’s business was an easy choice for us, given that they are the biggest Australian supplier of factory duck meat to the masses. But as the human population grows, and Pepe’s $400,000 bill in 2012 for being a fraud has to be paid, it’s no surprise they are seeking to destroy more land and more lives in order to keep themselves on top.
A storm was moving in, and the skies had opened up by the time we reached the site, but without hesitation we decided to act. Incendiary devices were strategically placed and accelerant spread on 3 of their earth destroying machines, and with just a spark, smoke began to fill the sky as we made our departure.
For all those suffering at the hands of their domesticators.
Commodified, but not forgotten.
January 30: Hundreds of rabbits have been released from captivity at a property outside Geelong.
Police believe the offenders opened an unlocked shed which held about 1200 rabbits in cages on the Anakie property sometime between 6pm on January 10 and 6am on January 11. Several hundred of the animals were let loose from the Ballan Road business.
Police said many of the rabbits were not familiar with how to survive in the wild.
March 12: Activists forced entry into the Parkwood Egg Farm, owned by Pace Farm, in Macgregor, between 11pm Monday, March 12 and 6am Tuesday, March 13.
They slashed conveyor belts, destroyed grading and packaging machinery, and damaged office equipment and forklifts. Battery acid and power tools were allegedly used to destroy equipment. Production at the battery egg farm was forced to a standstill.
A claim of responsibility was published on Bite Back: “Parkwood Egg Farm, located in Macgregor ACT and owned by Pace, is the ACT’s only factory farm, housing between 100000 and 200000 layer hens in small cages. Last night, Parkwood was infiltrated. Various items of equipment along the automated grading and packing production line were damaged or destroyed in an attempt to cause economic harm to those who profit from torture and murder. No equipment relating to the welfare of the hens was touched; they will continue to receive food and water. Continue reading “Canberra: raid on battery hen farm”
