Anonymous Hackers Group Declares Solidarity With Animal Liberation Struggle

Fight Against Oppression Won't be Affected by Recent Arrest of 14 Alleged Members

Los Angeles: In a computer-generated spoken communique on YouTube last week, the hackers group Anonymous voiced its solidarity with the struggle for animal liberation. Citing the commonality of oppression against humans and non-human animals, the group highlighted the injustice in animal experimentation and the unnecessary consumption of animal flesh, and asked the public not to turn their backs on non-humans capable of "emotions such as joy. anger. sadness & fear. both [humans and non-human animals] have families. mothers. fathers. brothers. sisters. sons & daughters".

The communique transcribed in full reads:

Hello You Tube. We are anonymous. We are legion. It has come to our attention. that not only human rights are important. but animal rights as well. Both are being oppressed every single day. Both are being denied the right to live freely as we deserve to. Both have the capability to feel emotions such as joy. anger. sadness & fear. both have families. mothers. fathers. brothers. sisters. sons & daughters. both deserve to live free from harm. Animals are innocent beings & have done nothing what so ever to be sentenced to death. They are defenceless & it is our duty to defend them from harm. A human being can survive perfectly fine without eating meat. This has been practiced over centuries & proven by us. The need to experiment on animals is wrong. For there are many alternatives to experiment on without using the animal. This also has been proven by animal right activists & scientists. Please feel free to comment on your thoughts. We are open for discussion on this issue of animal rights. Please do not turn your back on this great injustice the animals are facing every single day. Animals are our friends. And we do not eat our friends. We are the voice of the voiceless. We do not forget. We do not forgive. Expect us.

The North American Animal Liberation Press Office unequivocally supports the actions of Anonymous, as a critical component in the fight against a capitalist state intent on the destruction of habitat, oppression of those who are necessary to sustain its domination, and suppression of any dissent by those who recognize the need to act against tyranny.
