i know you and i are at odds on this subject dinz, and i am not at all familiar with ALF, but i just found this on their website:

ALF Mission Statement / Credo

The Animal Liberation Front (ALF) carries out direct action against animal abuse in the form of rescuing animals and causing financial loss to animal exploiters, usually through the damage and destruction of property.

The ALF's short-term aim is to save as many animals as possible and directly disrupt the practice of animal abuse. Their long term aim is to end all animal suffering by forcing animal abuse companies out of business.

i can't help but wonder what's wrong with trying to change a "real world" where animals are abused by the greed and apathy of humans ?
Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we have not stopped to include violence as an option in our conflict management, we are still savages.
