TAKING RESPONSIBILITY BY ALF ANIMAL LIBERATION FRONT (CENTRAL GREECE)
On July 15, while mountain climbing in Mavrorachi vilage of Pilion we discovered two dogs chained to two trees. As soon as they saw us they started to bark as if they were calling us to come to them. Seeing their strong need and desire for liberation, we decided to intervene and lead them to freedom. As we said, the two creatures were tied with chains about one metre long to two trees, which greatly restricted their movements.
In the suffocating context in which they were forced to live, their food was down on the ground next to their feces. The only thing certain is that their owner is not interested in their hygiene or living conditions.
We live in a world where abuse affects not only non-human animals but also human beings, such as women, children, migrants, transgender people, and many others. In a world where the financially and physically strong try to dominate what they consider weak and vulnerable. In an indifferent society where power is pervasive, it goes without saying that we are angry and outraged and are not going to sit idly by.
For us the total release of human and non-human animals is a key part of our action, so we hope such actions will be an inspiration and a springboard for other comrades, as we have been inspired all these years by the thousands of animal releases.
