"The Animal Liberation Front is claiming responsibility for the recent action taken against Huntingdon Life Sciences.
In the early hours of 5th October 2004 a cell of volunteers visited the home of Graham Wilson, Two Hoots, Hollybush Ride, Finchampstead, Wokingham, Berkshire, RG40 3QR who is a director of Healthcare Logistics who deal with HLS. We damaged his silver people-carrier with paint stripper and daubed his home in appropriate graffiti.

We took this action as we felt it was necessary to help all the animals imprisoned inside research establishments. Companies like Healthcare Logistics know that animals are imprisoned inside laboratories, shaking violently in their cages, huddling at the back of their pens alone, terrified of the kennel doors opening and the next visit from the cold emotionless technician, and yet they turn a blind eye as long as it makes them money. These people care solely about profit, so the most effective way of influencing their decisions is economic sabotage.

To the government: you will not stop us. The ALF was born out of the frustration that nobody was helping animals, and when we are imprisoned new faces will be inspired to don the balaclava for the first time.

Fuck you and your precious economy, the earth and all of its inhabitants are more important.

Until all are free,
The Animal Liberation Front."
