The only reason Panther’s were not killed by the LAPD in this incident is because Jeronimo Pratt used to have party members fill sand bags using dirt from the basement and stack them along the walls. The cops fired so many shots at the building that some walls almost collapsed, but because of Pratt’s foresite no one died.

Chasing Anarchists: May Day and the Federal Government's Use of Grand Juries as Political Counterintelligence -
“Unfettered speculation on the true motivations of the federal government to pursue political demonstrators is of limited and questionable utility, but the material consequences of such pursuits can be clearly tracked. The FBI’s concerted campaign to drum up hysteria and justify the massive resources spent in chasing anarchists represents a law enforcement trend with loud echoes of McCarthyism, wherein FBI targets were identified by what books they read and with whom they kept company rather than on the basis of criminal acts. Harkening back to an era of blacklists and thought crime, the trend of using grand juries to target holders of unpopular political views represents a real move toward a dangerous and deeply troubling infringement on the civil liberties of all.
Although proportionally the federal government’s targeting of largely white and young political radicals represents a smaller total number of terrorism-related investigations, the pattern of using grand juries as secret forums to ask activists what organizations they belong to, who they associate with and to scrutinize their political beliefs on the basis of “Americanism” closely parallels the hearings held by the House Subcommittee on Unamerican Activities. In this context, the activists in the Pacific Northwest who have vowed not to cooperate with politically motivated grand juries can be seen as canaries in the coal mine and the importance of their resistance to government intimidation cannot be overstated. Regardless of what one may think of the political philosophy, these government-identified anarchists merit widespread support and the gratitude of all who wish to exercise civil liberties so now in question”

America is at that awkward stage. It’s too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards. — Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do ‘Til the Revolution (via headandstomachached)
90% of the time someone links to a source document on TALON it says something different than what they are claiming. Some moron just used one of our documents to claim that John Zerzan was instrumental in starting the animal rights movement. That wasn’t a misunderstanding of the text, that was just an outright fabrication. Anyhow, I’m sure we aren’t the only site that happens too, so check those sources!
Didn’t see that Lilia had already posted a superior version of the poster!
LESS THAN ONE MONTH AWAY!
How often do you get to go to a conference where a broad cross section of people come together to discuss building a revolutionary movement that considers the needs of the entire biological community- humans, non-humans, and eco-systems? How often are you able to see the surviving members of the George Jackson Brigade speaking with members of the SHAC 7? How often do you get to hear the strategies and visions of people as different as A. Breeze Harper and scott crow? When was the last time you heard about how anti-vivisectionists in Italy are taking down the industry while also giving the boot to fascist political entryists? Come on folks, this is a one of a kind conference! You gotta make it out to this! PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST!
Phone Action Against China Southern Airlines!
When: Thurs, May 9th.
China Southern Airlines is the last Chinese airline to continue transporting primates for vivisection.
Air China, China Eastern Airlines, and Hainan Airlines have all confirmed that they will no longer transport primates.
China Southern Airlines regularly transport monkeys from Guangzhou (China), to Chicago (USA), and Paris (France), where the animals are distributed to laboratories across the USA and Europe. As the only transporter of primates from China, it’s suspected that China Southern Airlines are transporting upto 1,200 animals a month but it could be even more given their cargo capacity!
This is call out for a day of action against China Southern Airlines to let them know that the global animal rights community will not stand for their lies.
Phone: (773) 601-8800
Helen Han: Cargo Manager of China Southern in Chicago
You can also contact the Los Angeles offices.
Allegedly the Los Angeles office does not accept primate shipments, most likely due to the death of 17 primates in their care last year.
When contacting the LA offices it is best to urge them to contact Chicago and their corporate in China and demand that they change their current policies.

In February China Eastern Airlines was targeted by Gateway to Hell, PETA, and Empty Cages LA. They received over 500 calls in a few hours on Feb. 19th during a scheduled action, virtually shutting down their phone lines. After a month of campaigning they vowed to never ship a primate destined for a lab again.

They’ll be forced into the alleys with hangers, plungers and vacuum cleaners, risking death or mutilation. But you’d like that, wouldn’t you, Dan?
