"May 24 - Orvieto (Italy)
An ALF communique claims the liberation of all the doves from a farm that supplies them for a barbaric holy festivity in the city of Orvieto. The "festival of the dove" in orvieto has always been subject to demos, marches and protests by animal rights groups and animal welfare groups in Italy, because a dove is subject to suffering and trauma in a "ritual" done by the church involving fireworks near the animal.
This year it seems the liberation caused some problems to the organizers."
