"ON THE LIBERATION OF LAB RATS IN THESSALONIKI

The world of 'pollution', that has become a field of study for large social parts, is for others an everyday field for direct action for its subversion. Life in capitalism seems to have lost its meaning, everything seems to be predictable, known and dead before they are even realised. Without any measure, everything gains substance and value based only on the profit it produces. The System doesn't hesitate to exploit everything alive for its own reproduction, to turn everything living into a cog of its terrifying machinery. It has no hesitations to pollute the air, the food and the water of its 'subjects' in order to gain profit. Those that claim to govern us, experiment and exploit humans as easily as they do to animals.

IN CAPITALISM NOTHING IS ACCIDENTAL, THEY ALL FIT THE SAME PROJECT OF EXPLOITATION.

Every day that passes, hundreds of animals are butchered inside laboratories. Their lives are turned to one, brief time, study, on an indifferent laboratory ratio, in its best, on an intriguing reaction. Multinational companies (the same ones that drive their employees to hunger) test their products on them. Pharmacy industries and medical teams (the same that are responsible for innumerable deaths of patients) test their studies on them.

Of course, the animals are also used, apart from the evolution of medical methods, for teaching. As a part of the 'holy' plan of education, they form part of the educational procedure within the university. They are not treated as something alive, with an inalienable right to freedom, but as a component of the courses.

Willing to resist somehow the generalised exploitation of earth and the animals, a few days ago we liberated around 250 white rats from the building of the aristotle university that holds the faculties of Biology, Zoology and Pharmacy. Rats, stacked gasping for breath in dirty cages, had never felt the breeze, the only color they had seen was white, and never faced the sunlight...

FREEDOM FOR LIFE
FREEDOM FOR ALL

...untill their civilization turns into ruins
