“As hunt saboteurs we are witnesses to the all-out war against wildlife which seems to be the main activity in the so-called countryside. Open country is the playground of the rich, and a few patches of scrubby woods remain only because they are managed for hunting and shooting. These copses and areas of scrub are not of sufficient size or quality to maintain a great diversity of plant and animal life. Whatever animals do manage to survive are terrorised, poisoned, trapped and shot by gamekeepers, terrier men, blethering aristocrats and various other professional or amateur sadists. While crossing the countryside to sabotage a foxhunt we will usually find much evidence of other wildlife abuse – shooting pens, snares, larsen-traps and often active shooters. I have seen a pair of rifle-shooters halfway through the day surrounded by the corpses of at least fifty wood-pigeons and a crow. Without our intervention they would have killed another fifty birds in the rest of the day. Walking, cycling or driving through country lanes it is all too easy to believe that the countryside is an idyllic refuge for nature, but looking a little deeper it appears more like an enormous factory of waste, pollution and animal abuse. Even the massacre of wildlife does not compare to the stinking farmyards, littered with dead machinery, where millions of sick and suffering animals are raised on antibiotics, hormones and cash-crop concentrates to feed up the next generation of European heart-attack victims who occasionally trundle past in their 4x4s. An irate farmer once said to a sab, “What would happen if I wasn’t here managing this land? The trees would grow and the birds would come back! There’d be little birds everywhere! And then what would you do?” This fear and hatred of wild plants and animals is typical of the alienation from nature that agro-industrial workers suffer. As usual, hatred justifies abuse.” from Do Or Die issue 10
Today I went badger sett checking with a group of people which included another hunt sab, someone from badger watch and someone I absolutely didn’t trust. Please watch the clips for info on the day –
The cull zone is being extended to the point that it is going to make it so difficult for us to be an effective presence of resistance and to protect the badgers. So we need people who are sympathetic with the cause to join in and to sab the cull. We need people who are trustworthy, safe and reliable, because informants and infiltrators could potentially create a huge amount of problems.
Here is info on how to join the hunt sabs.
Here is info on how get involved outside of direct actions.
Here are some 2 links on laws you should be aware of – link 1, link 2.
Here is information on how to badger watch.
Some photos from today at the sett that’s been killed off –
Vast quantities of Antarctic ice are collapsing into the sea, something that scientists are fearful is signalling the early stages of unstoppable disintegration.
With the Arctic permafrost melting, the crypt known as the Doomsday Vault, built to preserve humanity’s food sources after/during an apocalyptic/disaster situation, has flooded.
Doomsday is every day to those 200 species that go extinct daily, thanks to this culture.
The apocalypse is now. It isn’t God, invaders from Mars, zombies, galactic alignment, geomagnetic reversal, or even Donald Trump. It’s dehabitation, development, mass extinction, oil culture, agriculture, global warming and more. It’s the ecological collapse we are living through.
Wishful thinking, positivity and green-tech isn’t going to stop what is already happening, or work as long term “sustainable” solutions.
All life is beautiful, which should be celebrated and enjoyed. Here is a gif and 2 videos for your enjoyment.
Tree eaters include the Biojack 300E, the Posse ScorpionKing, the CBI ChipMax 484 Portable, the Naarva S23 Stroke Harveste, the John Deere H414, the SP 451 LF and the Waratah HTH624C. The damage they inflict, as you can see, is horrific.
And to quote the words of J. R. R. Tolkien –
“These folk are hewers of trees and hunters of beasts; therefore we are their unfriends, and if they will not depart we shall afflict them in all ways that we can.”
Max is a prominent and very vocal member of the radical environmentalist organisation Deep Green Resistance, often uploading videos where he speaks on the subject of anti-civ action. Here is his latest one on false solutions –

No hyper-bol; no exagérations; no inaccuracy; no fake news; no religious dogma (theist or atheist); no conspiracy – just the situation laid bare: the planet is being killed (not dying) and we know it. The mass extinction event currently underway, along side climate change, air, land and water pollution, and just about everything else that surmounts to the day-to-day normality of this culture presents us with an impending apocalypse (in any meaningful sense of the term), which this culture will have to face up to eventually.
Marxist-Lacanian philosopher and sociologist Zizek, despite his reverence of Stalinist-socialist type-civilisation, has some valuable insights on the value of abandoning hope –
“The true courage is not to imagine an alternative, but to accept the consequences of the fact that there is no clearly discernible alternative: the dream of an alternative is a sign of theoretical cowardice; it functions as a fetish that prevents us thinking through to the end the deadlock of our predicament. In short, the true courage is to admit that the light at the end of the tunnel is most likely the headlights of another train approaching us from the opposite direction.” Zizek.
Radical environmentalist writer Derrick Jensen stated in his seminal text Endgame this –
“A wonderful thing happens when you give up on hope, which is that you real-
ize you never needed it in the first place. You realize that giving up on hope
didn’t kill you, nor did it make you less effective. In fact it made you more effec-
tive, because you ceased relying on someone or something else to solve your
problems—you ceased hoping your problems somehow get solved, through the
magical assistance of God, the Great Mother, the Sierra Club, valiant tree-sitters,
brave salmon, or even the Earth itself—and you just began doing what’s neces-
sary to solve your problems yourself …. When you give up on hope, you lose a lot of fear. And when you quit relying on hope, and instead begin to just protect those you love, you become danger-ous indeed to those in power.” Derrick Jensen, Endgame.
It is time we have the courage to abandon hope, stop taking comfort in it, take responsibility for our lives, the world our lives are immersed in, and start to act in resistance and revolt – defending wild nature and attacking that which seeks to kill it.
