Received anonymously by activists in the UK:
Ignoring the infra-red cameras and patrolling security guards, ALF warriors crossed the canal behind the UPS office building in Nottingham and sabotaged all 4 cars parked in the staff carpark. The cars were covered with paint stripper and had their tyres slashed.
UPS do you really think you can weather the onslaught? Do some research, look at the number of direct action attacks HLS collaborators have been subjected to in the past. Many huge multinational companies including Marsh, BOC and Natwest have been the targets of unrelenting campaigns of economic sabotage until they dumped HLS. You are no different! Supporters of torture, pain, destruction and murder will reap what they have sown.
Until all are free

"A message to activists:
We must stop relying on others to do what we can do ourselves. Instead of just cheering the ALF on demos, singing about and reading of their exploits, we need to all actually become the ALF. Direct action can be quick, simple and easy, look at action reports on the internet for ideas; paint bombs, slashing tyres, paint stripping cars, smashing windows, liberating animals...
Taking the initial steps can be daunting but start small (maybe spraypainting the building of an HLS supplier) and slowly build your confidence, act alone or with trusted friends. If you take care, wear gloves, cover your face and plan thoroughly, there is less chance getting arrested carrying out economic sabotage than going on a demo.
Words such as these can
not be printed in magazines or spoken on demos due to the UKs incitement laws,
but they are words that must be said. Please for the sake of the innocent
animals inside HLS, lets stop just hurling abuse and start hurling rocks.
We are the animals only hope. We cannot and will not fail them..."
