A little update…

Hello everyone!

We wanted to link you to the websites of the previous animal liberation gatherings that the Forest Anti-Spe Days are in continuation with, to offer a bit of an idea of what you might expect to find this time:

Marseille 2016

Bristol 2017

Bilbao 2018

Rome 2019

We also wanted to mention that we’re working on releasing a first list of workshops + more in a week or so!

In the meantime we wanted to recommend a text from LiberRats, an anarchist initiative for total liberation based in so-called Greece. We think it addresses some interesting points on the connections between the coronavirus pandemic and anti-speciesism… as well as white supremacy, class, patriarchy and civilisation. As a word of caution, some of us expressed concerns with the language used, which potentially contains some speciesist undertones, so as always approach it critically… It can be found here in Greek and in English.

Love and rage!

INTERNATIONAL CALL!!

JOIN US IN THE HAMBACHER FOREST FOR A WEEKEND OF DISCUSSION, WORKSHOPS AND REVOLT FOR ANIMAL LIBERATION

24-27 SEPTEMBER 2020

After months of dystopian weirdness and unprecedented state-repression imposed on the basis of corona, borders are opening up and rage is exploding around the world. But with potentially no radical anti-speciesist gatherings in Europe this summer to contribute to the clash, we felt the need to set a rallying point!

The Hambacher Forest is an ongoing focal point for anti-capitalism and radical ecology on the continent – let’s find each other there and take the opportunity to share skills and perspectives on how to confront human supremacy in the current context. In continuation with the anarchist animal liberation gatherings which took place in Marseille (2016), Bristol (2017), Bilbao (2018) and Rome (2019), we aim to connect those who incorporate the fight alongside other animals and their habitats into a broader struggle against all hierarchies – a struggle for total liberation.

A list of workshops – both hands-on and more theoretical – is soon to be announced. We also want to invite you to propose your own, whether over the coming weeks or more spontaneously once the event begins. Other contributions in the form of literature, stalls and whatever else are also warmly invited.

Remember, this event is:
– FREE, including vegan food for the duration of the event
– SELF-ORGANISED, so if you see a job it’s yours!
– SQUATTED, taking place in an illegal land occupation
– ANTI-OPPRESSION, so fuck right off if you have racist/sexist/heterosexist/cissexist/speciesist or otherwise bigoted views and behaviour
– IN A FOREST, so be ready to camp and respect the ecosystem!

More info about what to expect and how to get there will be released on this website in the coming weeks.

Spread the word and stay wild!!!
