Communiqué from unknown activists
Date: September 19, 2006
Institution targeted: Capralogics
In honor of the SHAC-7, 23 rabbits have been liberated from Capralogics, a vivisection lab in rural Massachusettes. Jake, Lauren, Kevin, Andy, Josh, and Darius, as well as their 17 other lop-eared friends who have yet to be named, are all safe from the hands of those who had imprisoned and tortured them in the name of profit.
Capralogics is a small company that does contract testing on rabbits and goats in both the U.S. and the U.K. Some of the photos submitted with this communique, taken by a Capralogics employee in the U.S., show the way rabbits are treated by this terrible company – their bodies restrained in headlocks, their skin shaved off so they could be injected with various compounds. When their experiment concludes they are terminally bled, meaning they are cut and left to bleed until their life has drained away. Then, as the pictures show, they are thrown into the surrounding fields for coyotes to eat.
Of course, once we found about this we could not let it continue without trying to rescue some of the animals. So in the middle of a warm, foggy night, we hopped the cheap fencing around Capralogics’ property and entered one of their four rabbit housing sheds. There were no locks to pick, no windows to pry open, no doors to bust down – the sheds are open structures and we simply had to step over a gate to enter them. One by one we went down the rows of small cages, each containing a rabbit which had most likely never felt the sun on its fur or the grass beneath its paws. Every cage in the shed was opened and we took as many rabbits as we could, 23 total.Several other rabbits were let loose into the surrounding field. With luck they will live their last days in freedom, but even if they get caught or killed as least they have had one decent night in their otherwise tortured lives.
Quickly our 23 new friends were hurried to our waiting vehicle and off we went into the night, laughing thinking about the faces on those bastards when they walked into their rabbit shed the next morning. Finally free, the rabbits quickly made friends with one another and quickly made themselves at home. The endless anger we feel towards those who torture these creatures was replaced with the immediate joy of seeing them free, happy, and on their way to a new life. We would like to point out how easy this action was – it didn’t take any particular skill, just a little planning and a little committment.There are thousands of labs and farms across this country, many in isolated rural areas like this one, and most can be found online or in public directories – what’s stopping you?
This liberation is dedicated to the SHAC-7 and was done in direct response to the government’s assault on them. Not a single member of the judge, jury and prosecution have the compassion, the conviction, or the courage of any of those six individuals, and they never will. In this sick culture, we know that every day the sick, the stupid, and the evil bully and destroy those who are far their better. Every lab, farm and fur animal, every poisoned wild bird, every beaten child, every raped woman knows this. The case of the SHAC-7 is no different.
But we will fight back for them. Animal liberation is an idea whose time has come and a reality that any of us can create. The government and the industries it represents hate us so much because no matter who they surveil, raid, defame or imprison, they cannot kill the idea and so they cannot stop us. And while the SHAC-7 will soon go to jail for simply speaking out on behalf of animals, those of us who have done all the nasty stuff talked about in the courts and in the media will still be free. So to those who still work with HLS and to all who abuse animals: we’re coming for you, motherfuckers.
Until all are free, the night belongs to us…
