Marin Sun Farms sabotage
Saturday Aug 17th, 2013 12:51 PM
Marin Sun Farms held accountable
This was our first action, inspired by the amazing work of animal liberationists in Costa Mesa, Montana, Idaho, Portland, and elsewhere this summer.

Around midnight on August 12, we held local animal abuser Dave Evans and Marin Sun Farms accountable for the lives they've destroyed. We took action on behalf of the thousands of pigs, cows, lambs, chickens, and goats killed for profit by Marin Sun Farms. Hiding behind the language of sustainability can never hide the violence and terror of the blade and captive bolt gun. Animals are not biological machines designed to serve those with class and species privilege.

First, we glued the locks on their new San Francisco meat processing building, on Eighth and Bryant Street. We slashed all sixteen tires on the four Marin Sun Farms vehicles parked out front. Our next stop was their butcher shop in Oakland's Market Hall. We left the glass door slathered with glass etching cream.

We hold no illusions that our action will cause Marin Sun Farms to retreat and close up shop. Their violence is motivated by the huge profits they reap. Their new processing facility is a three million dollar investment.

But we act to make their work just that much more difficult. We act to show them that their speciesist violence will always be met with resistance. And to show everyone out there who believes in justice that their despair can be turned into action.

This is NOT intended as a criticism of your actions. But it is a criticism of the unreality of your thinking.

"Their violence is motivated by the huge profits they reap."

No, the fact that animals are being killed so that they can be eaten is NOT because somebody can make a huge profit doing so. The reason is that the overwhelming majority of the people around you want to eat meat. If the fact that perhaps you hang around with and socialize just with other vegetarians is causing you not to see this you need to open your eyes to the reality.

Therefor, what you need to do is get out there and convince people, lots of people, that they no longer WANT to eat meat.

Attacking places that process and/or sell meat will be effective only so long as it is ineffective. If you were ACTUALLY getting in between the people who want to eat meat and their meat and the only way to stop you would be killing you you'd be dead.

I'll repeat, to win this fight you need to convince more than a tiny minority not to want to eat meat.
