An ALF Member Speaks
Here’s an interesting first-person account of a break-in committed by a cell of the British Animal Liberation Front (ALF). The author goes into quite a bit of detail into how they staked the laboratory in question and eventually carried out the raid, resulting in the taking of several animals that were undergoing experimentation. It’s surprising how lax security was at the lab when one considers the level of animal rights activism currently going on in the UK. Not surprisingly, the author expresses absolutely no remorse for his actions, and states that he plans to commit similar acts in the future. It kind of makes you wonder if it might be a good idea to mix in some counseling with imprisonment in cases like this, as regular jail time seems to do nothing but harden the beliefs of persons such as these.
