"Sven and Natasha liberated!
In one of the past nights Active for Justice went to a chicken farm and
rescued 26 chickens! This action is dedicated to our dear comrade in jail;
Somewhere in the Netherlands, in the darkest hours of the night, we
gathered up near a chicken farm. Carefully moving forward, there were wild
animals all around. Guided by their sounds and movement we approached our
target. At the farm they probably saw us passing the bins with dead and
decaying chickens and disappearing in the stables. Here, we were greeted by
a view that could have been taken right out of a horror movie. Huge amounts
of these intelligent birds all crammed into little cages, row upon row as
far as the eye can see. Living in their own filth with metal bars all
around them producing egg after egg. If hell exists, we entered it right
A cage-door opens while many eyes look terrified in our direction.
Carefully the chicken (who we named Sven, although she is a girl) is
lifted out and she could feel the warmth of our bodies touching. For the
first time in her life she is greeted with love, with a feeling that she
tóó matters. The chicken who we named Natasha came out of a different cage
and she was met with a gentleness and love that she will have never thought
was possible from a human being. it’s all we can do for the others that we
have to leave behind, give them a little bit more space to move around.
Sorry girls, we wish we could have taken all of you. We will never forget
you and we will grieve the day you die… May your rest and peace come soon
and without pain.
While we moved outside and let our 26 new friends taste the fresh air for
the first time in their lives we can’t help but think about this fucked up
system that is destroying so many lives every day. All we can do is fight
it as hard as we all can! More and more people are standing up to resist
and we will be no exceptions. Our struggle goes on until every cage is
empty and until every slaughterhouse has been closed down. So pardon us for
smiling when their oppressive system comes crumbling down, we know that
from the ashes we can build a new society based on equality and freedom;
the aim is nothing less than a vegan society!
Sven and Natasha; stay strong during these times! Without you being who you
are these girls would have never gotten away from their prison. They will
live their lives in as much freedom as possible, with a lot of grass and
mud to roam around on. We hope that Sven (the human one ;-)) will get out
of his cell as soon as possible and we call upon all people to show Sven
all the support he can possibly get!
FREE THE ANIMALS!
UNTIL EVERY CAGE IS EMPTY!
