ALERT: Extremists and Fringe Groups Animal Rights National Conference 2018

Domestic Terrorism


Last weekend in Los Angeles, the Animal Rights National Conference 2018 was held. The event was put on by Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM).

Lest one think that animal-rights terrorism has gone out of style, there were handouts promoting the Animal Liberation Front Press Office. The ALF is an FBI-designated domestic terrorist group; the “Press Office” claims to not be involved in the underground organization but will happily promote “communiques” from ski-mask-wearing criminals. One of the handouts was information about how to write to and support ALF operatives who had been arrested and imprisoned. The first piece of advice was, “Don’t discuss any illegal activity.”

A new radical upstart in the movement, Direct Action Everywhere happily discusses its breaking and entering into farms. According to attendees, Direct Action Everywhere’s May “Animal Liberation” conference attracted a greater number of attendees than this more mainstream gathering.

Meanwhile, material from United Poultry Concerns led by Karen Davis was also being distributed to conference attendees. The first story in their magazine was a ham-fisted attempt to capitalize on the #MeToo movement by relating it to chickens.

Militant vegans weren’t the only conference-goers. Representatives of an anarchist website were handing out their own manifesto, laden with photos of black-clad rioters engaged in activities such as tossing Molotov cocktails. The text itself criticized profit and private property, as well as yearning for “the founding crime of the society to come.”

If the animal rights movement wants a semblance of legitimacy, they’ll need to disassociate from the underground criminal organizations, the science-deniers, and those who go for shock rather than substance.
