Working the Late Shift
At the Animal-Abusers Home
where battles are fought in a war is crucial in gaining the edge on ultimate victory.
When we, as activists, wage war at the homes of animal abusers, the playing field
levels off in our favor. It is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain effective
street campaigns against massive and faceless corporations, especially when the
opposition is holed up in high-rise buildings and secured complexes. When access
to public protest is cut off, bringing the message home isnt only an alternative;
its an effective necessity. Attacking the home, making it personal, attaches
a face to those responsible for inflicting pain on animals.
When we strike at home, the abusers no longer have
the comfort of working behind the security blanket of company-subsidized protection.
The animal abuser is no longer able to keep work separate from his personal life,
creating a host of financial and psychological problems that demonstrate the efficacy
of targeting the opposition at home. After all, isnt it true that home
is where the heart is?
Everyone has to eat and sleep. Historically,
these basic human needs have provided a valuable angle of attack in many successful
wars or sieges. Companies will explore alternatives when animal exploitation loses
profitability. Animal-abusers will consider another line of work when they cant
sleep without fear of reprisals from activists. The only barrier to effectively
targeting our adversaries is our own lack of creativity.
The Work of
an Activist Begins Off the Clock
It is absolutely imperative
that ones homework is thorough and 100% correct before taking action. Dont
simply rely on an Internet search or a telephone call to confirm your suspicions.
Make absolutely sure that the face matches the name and the target is still in
the business. Make sure that the individual to be targeted currently resides
at the location through your own physical confirmation. For example, make sure
that John Doe still works at Company Filth and that Mr. Does address and/or
phone number is current. DO NOT simply rely on a telephone call confirming that
John Doe lives at 666 Mockingbird Lane. Confirm that your John Doe who lives at
666 Mockingbird Lane IS ALSO the very same John Doe who works at Company Filth.
are many ways of locating and confirming the home addresses, gyms, churches, clubs,
and associations of your target. But the responsibility of discovering and implementing
those methods lies with the individual activist. If there is a will, the underground
movement has certainly proven that there is a way to achieve our objectives. Be
creative, think outside the box and dont give up at the first block wall
in your search. The methods of locating and confirming the personal information
of our adversaries are best kept in some degree of mystery, to be realized by
the cells that will immediately use such information. To publish those methods
here is to make them available to our adversaries and effectively compromise those
techniques from ever being used by activists.
Sleep With One Eye Open
confirmation, go all out in your efforts. After the first hit, the odds of a second
successful second hit are often decreased. Assume that the first shot is the last
shot, so make it count. John Doe will sleep many restless nights, waiting to catch
you on a return visit; so dont play into his hands. Nervous anticipation
and suspense are almost as effective as the action itself, so making him sweat
is key to effectively striking at home. The physical invasion of privacy can be
remedied through insurance and security, but the mental invasion and psychological
sabotage are long-lasting and incredibly effective. While economic sabotage is
key, psychological warfare is an invaluable tool to stopping animal exploitation.
Hit hard and make em sweat.
While listing the methods of destruction
in a communiqué is important for not only informing the public and educating
other activists as to how they can carry on the actions in their own community,
the opportunity for screwing with the abusers mental state is at hand. One
might want to consider mentioning the night activists looked on as John Doe and
his wife watched television reruns on the sofa, unaware of the activists just
outside their window. Activists might want to suggest that John Doe run his sprinklers
at night rather than during the day or to inform him that motion detector lights
are a waste of money. Use that previous reconnaissance time as another avenue
of publicly invading the private sphere of the animal-abuser, but be mindful to
omit details that would jeopardize your cell or your methods of operation that
you plan to use in the future.
The more personal, the better. Let him think
that nothing is off limits. And dont forget to make the address public in
your communiqué so others can feel free to pay him a future visit. People
cherish their privacy, especially animal-abusing scum. Publishing his address
takes away yet another sense of security. Make him feel exposed and vulnerable;
keep him up waiting for the other shoe to drop and rub his face in it. Destroy
his property, strip him of his security, and leave him unnerved and vulnerable,
feeling like the worthless chump that he is.
Some basic but effective ways
of hammering the message home are to:
» Glue the door locks
Smash out the windows with rocks
» Repaint the house exterior by tossing
on gallons of a most obnoxious color
» Tell his neighbors that an Animal-Killer
lives here by spray-painting his garage door
» Pour bleach all
over the front lawn
» Tear up the front lawn
» Padlock the
garage door shut (Many garage doors have a latch on the sides of the door that
are fitted for padlocks. Automatic garage doors arent cheap to repair and
if he cant get to work in the morning, he cant make money.)
Pour paint thinner or a new coat of paint on the car
» Slash the car
» Pour corn syrup or sugar into the cars gas tank
Cut the phone lines to the house (this is especially aggravating when he wakes
up to a trashed house and cant even call the police to report it)
Repaint the house interior
Fill glass bottles with paint (or paint thinner)
and pitch them through the front windows (theyll shatter in the living room,
creating a big mess)
» Take a sledgehammer and smash up the exterior
stucco or wood siding
» Just flip the car over and smash it up
Turn the hose on (preferably inside an open window)
» When John Doe is
on vacation, and there are no animals at home, leave him a pile of ash to return
» Steal his newspaper (the little things can be the salt in the wound)
Every home is different, so be creative and look to exploit any prospect.
The possibilities are endless with some ingenuity.
Most importantly, make
sure everything is clean of fingerprints and DNA. Leave nothing behind other than
a big mess (or a clean padlock in a particular instance).
Work Keeps Following Them Home
After the identity and home of the animal-abuser
has more than adequately been verified and proper reconnaissance has been done,
plan out your nights course of action to the smallest detail. Have an escape
route and emergency rendezvous point planned. Check the surrounding houses to
make sure that no neighbors are up and about. Make sure that your target is sound
asleep and unsuspecting.
When combining different methods of mischief like
gluing locks, spray painting, damaging automobiles, and smashing windows, start
nearest the front door and with the quietest actions first. Its simply not
a good idea to smash out a window and then go glue the front door locks or to
tear up the lawn and then start spraying messages. Strike fast and hard; then
get away fast.
It is imperative that the maximum amount of destruction
is planned, as the first attack may make any subsequent attack unsafe. Dont
assume you can just finish up an incomplete job at a later date, but dont
discount one either. If you decide to return, and you should, approach from a
different angle and vary your technique as well as the time and day of a subsequent
visit. Let him sweat a little before returning, and just as he feels things are
returning to normal, rattle his cage in a big away again. Or if hes replaced
the front windows after your first visit, considering cruising by later that night
and shooting them out with a slingshot and marbles. There will be no mistaking
Be creative and seize any unique opportunity that presents
itself in your suburban assault. Make every effort to not only destroy property,
but to completely dismantle the animal-abusers sense of security.
every liberty in completely screwing with his head and ensuring that, when leaving
the strain of work, he retreats to a strained household. Try pitching his kids
tricycle through the front window to really get under his skin. Hes a scumbag
who profits from the death of sentient beings
all bets are off!
the home of an animal-abuser not only adversely affects the finances and psychological
well-being of the abuser himself, but those with whom he resides. A hard days
work is bad enough, but when the castle has been ransacked and the marriage is
stressed, a reassessment of priorities is inevitable.
Combining a variety
of the tactics previously mentioned can easily inflict several thousand dollars
worth of damage, create a lot of headache, and cause many sleepless nights. Every
dollar of damage and every psychological assault brings the adversary one step
closer to reconsidering his role in animal exploitation.
Bringing the fight
to the doorsteps of the animal-abuser employs a strategy that combines economic
and psychological values of sabotage that cannot be overstated. By staging the
battlefield on our oppositions home turf, we gain an incredible advantage
that animal-abusers have yet to combat. Making it personal efficiently destroys
the security, morale, and finances of those who torture innocent lives. So get
out there and dont just knock; beat down Deaths door.
Maximum Destruction, NOT Minimum Damage.
