Today’s Thought:

We need to build a database of the enemies of animals. We need the names and addresses of every member of the boards of directors of companies that own slaughterhouses, factory farms, testing laboratories, medical research facilities that practice vivisection, fishing fleets, circuses, rodeos, fur farms, fur retailers, racing stables, aquatic parks. We need to compile the names of those who run kill shelters, extermination companies, hunting and trapping suppliers, manufacturers of hunting supplies, glue traps, captive bolt guns, cattle prods, bullhooks, steel-jaw traps, lobster pots, seine nets, long lines, etc.

These are the enemies we should target first.



Author’s Notes:

I am unaware of any other blog with the Armory’s mission of radicalizing the animal movement. I certainly hope I am not alone, and that there are similar sentiments being expressed by comrades unknown to me.

If you know of other blogs dedicated to animal rights and the defeat of capitalism, please comment with a link.

• Be sure to visit Armory of the Revolution’s new commissary and bookstore: The Supply Depot

You will find recommended reading on Animal Rights, revolutionary theory, politics, economics, religion, science, and atheism. There is also a section of supplies for animal liberationists, hunt saboteurs, and social revolutionaries. This is all brand new, and we will be adding lots more merchandise in the near future!

Feel free to comment. I encourage open discussion and welcome other opinions. I moderate comments because this blog has been attacked by hunters and right wing trolls. I approve comments that are critical as well as those which agree with me. Comments that I will not tolerate are those that are spam, threatening, disrespectful, or which promote animal abuse and cruelty.

  1. Both John Brown and William Lloyd Garrison were [assionate and committed slavery abolitionists – one chose violence and one chose words as weapons. John Brown came to a bad end and I would rather be alive to do all I can in my lifetime. Besides, I am vegan in part because I oppose violence, and do not see violence as a legitimate means of persuasion. Thank you for your thought-provoking posts.


    • You will recall that it did take violence to end slavery. It took riots and a war. And it will take much, much more to end the slavery and genocide of animals. I do not believe persuasion should be our objective. Our objective should be to incapacitate and overthrow the system that allows animal to be owned, exploited, and murdered.


  2. Aren’t the real enemies the consumers? If people did not demand the products and services offered by the enemies on your list, those enemies would be out of business. If the enemies on your list did go out of business now, others would step in to take their place if there was still consumer demand. Our energy should be directed at educating consumers and reducing demand.


    • Ultimately, everything is determined by consumer demand. Enlightening the consumer is the goal of every prohibitive campaign. For example, Sea World exists because people pay to see dolphins and orcas perform. Our target, however,is Sea World itself. The very act of targeting Sea World informs and dissuades the public. Much of the demand to see performing orcas is created by Sea World itself, through advertising. Reduce the advertising, or create negative advertising, and demand decreases. It is hard to imagine a more negative impact on the public than to see owners of slaughterhouses strung up on light posts.
