San Francisco fur shop vandalized

ALF claims credit for two incidents at San Francisco's B.B. Hawk fur store.
"Last week, a lone volunteer with the Animal Liberation Front paid a visit to B.B. Hawk Fur and Leather at 25 Division Street in San Francisco. A window was destroyed with glass etching cream. A police car drove by at slow speed so an exit was made before more damage could be done.

Two nights later, a return visit was made, and the etched window had not been replaced. This time, the window adjacent to it was shattered.

The horror of the fur industry speaks for itself. Fur is skin torn from a wild animal that was trapped or confined in a tiny space for the entirety of their life.

The animal liberation movement in the Bay Area has risen from its grave. Our movement will fight you with everything we have.

A.L.F."

A friend of mine suggests that acts of sabotage might be safer by omitting any logo that could be associated with anyone. Was it the ALF? Was it the ELF? Some other group? The point is the sabotage. Anyway, I don't totally agree with the ALF, ELF etc. on their specific methods, but I nevertheless support them, and definitely oppose the repressive counterinsurgency methods carried out against groups resisting various forms of corporate, and state hegemony. I see a lot of in fighting about methods, and while I think critical discussion is a good thing, divisions are something we need to dispense with. Recognizing the importance of solidarity in resisting the various War on Terror measures, particularly legalistic, used by elites is essential to organizing something better.

Just be careful using that 3 letter acronym. You go from a misdemeanor to multiple felonies if you get caught when you claim it under that name. Plus the FBI gets involved, instead of local cops who don't have time or don't care about a single broken window.
