Whilst it was always expected, we can now conclusively state that Nepal's monkeys have been saved from vivisection...BY LAW!!!
This legally binding agreement represents the final hurdle for international primate rescue groups to assist in the rescue operation; with one Dutch group already having offered support and others having publicly offered assistance before, we are hopeful for a swift and successful release operation.
The only problem with the declaration was that the Nepalese Government chose to offer NO financial assistance to the rehabilitation foundation...instead they are expecting external funding for the project, so soon we are expecting to take responsibility for nearly 400 hungry mouths with limited funds to sustain them!
The monkeys are still being "cared for" by the breeders, who will receive compensation in exchange for the animals and the farm, (to be handed over to the campaign foundation). The hope is that the farm, once successfully converted, will also serve as a rehabilitation sanctuary for other wildlife once the monkeys have been released.
The current estimate is the project will cost around ?100 per monkey, or about ?40,000, and take 6-12 months to successfully complete. A fundraising campaign is urgently being established by a European campaign group, and activists are preparing to go to Nepal, (entirely at their own expense), to provide logistics and operations support to the campaigners setting up the foundation.
More information will follow soon about the fundraising campaign, but we sincerely hope we that can rely on your continued support to finish this incredible grassroots campaign in fairytale style!
For the animals...
Anarchists solidarity protest outside Korydallos prison, the main prison in Athens, at the time of the change of the year. This protest happens every New Year's Eve for the past six years. This year more than 400 people took part in the protest that interacted with the prisoners inside through shouting mutual slogans and fireworks. The main slogan was "The passion for freedom is stronger that your prisons".
A society that punishes/the condition of incarceration/the prison of the mind/the prison as punishment/the rage of the damned will sound on the ruins of prisons/those denying obedience and misery of our era even within its hellholes/will dance together on the ruins of every last prison/with the flame of rebellion avenging whatever creates prisons.
To the prisoners struggle already counting one dead and thousands in hunger strike across greece, we stand in solidarity and anger until the destruction of every last prison.
