According to an anonymous report on frentedeliberacionanimal.net, on August 17 the Animal Liberation Front released chickens from an enclosure, and damaged materials used to imprison the animals, in the self-managed, squatted Errekaleor neighbourhood in Vitoria-Gasteiz. In a claim of responsibility, the activists wrote about the community, "We want to emphasize that we do not see you as enemies, quite the opposite, but in a project that proclaims freedom we will not accept the normalization of animal exploitation."
