Open rescue in memory of Gari Allen (click here for additional photos from the rescue):
"In June 2009, 65 hens were freed from unnecessary suffering and misery of battery cages. They were transffered to new, safe homes.
Animals are not gifts, neither is their rescue. Therefore not even this rescue is meant as a gift and is not dedicated to anyone. It is only related to the memory of a man who could do more than just saying nothing, moaning and crying.
On 16th of June 2006, after a short illness, Gari Allen died.
Gari Allen was an anarchist. He believed in direct action and the Animal Liberation Front. He took part in many sabotages and rescues from farms and laboratories, he also worked in shelters and sanctuaries. In the eighties and nineties he was imprisoned twice.
I remember. We remember."
