Press Office Opening Announced

Dec 3, 2004 the new North American Animal Liberation Press Office was launched at a press conference held in Van Nuys, CA. Steven Best, PhD and Jerry Vlasak, MD spoke to assembled press representatives and announced the office would be available around the clock to communicate information and ideology from the animal liberation movement to the press.

Capitalizing on recent liberation raids, the Press Office was able to immediately reach millions of people via local and national media, and the press is now aware that they have a constant and reliable source for stories on the struggle for animal liberation.

Why the Animal Liberation Press Office is Needed

“No one [from the Animal Liberation movement] could be reached Wednesday.” – LA Times article on McDonalds attack, Nov 25, 2004

“Members are told to remain anonymous, and could not be located for comment.” – Monterey Herald article on multiple raids,
Nov 26, 2004

In recent weeks, it has been made explicitly clear by the media that a press office for the Animal Liberation movement is necessary. In dozens of news articles detailing numerous underground actions in the past few weeks, comment has been unavailable to counter the interests of the animal abusers, who have spoken largely unopposed. In one article, the reporter finally found Robin Webb, the spokesperson for the ALF in the
United Kingdom.

The new Animal Liberation Press Office is not a “spokesperson” for the liberation movement, but rather a growing group of tested, well-spoken above ground activists who will provide the media with information regarding actions by the underground, along with explanations of their ideology and philosophy. Not limited to the ALF, the press office will speak out on behalf of any act aimed at animal liberation. The Press Office is not about people or personalities, its about the animals, striving to communicate their plight at the hands of the abusers and the exploits of those who will free them from oppression.
