The remains of the Cavel West horse meat packing plant after it burned down in 1997, which was claimed by the ALF/ELF, in which Joseph Dibee has claimed participation in the attack. The plant never reopened.
ANARQUÍA NOTE: The following update and information of Joseph Dibee, is collected from a non-related media, so it is necessary to take the information with caution. However, it is necessary to make known the progress of his case, in view of the silence of his situation. No comrade is alone. Active solidarity with the imprisoned fighters.
Long-time fugitive, Joseph Dibee pleaded guilty this year to helping burn down an Oregon horse meat factory in 1997, but he says the FBI is withholding evidence that could affect his soon-to-be-decided sentence.
Joseph Dibee, a former international fugitive who pleaded guilty to the 1997 arson of a Central Oregon abattoir that sold wild horse meat to Europe, says the U.S. government is withholding information about his extradition. In an affidavit, he indicated a special agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation lied when the agent said the U.S. government did not videotape the incident.
FBI Special Agent Timothy Suttles stated in his own sworn declaration, filed in federal court on July 14, that he was present in Havana to arrest Dibee but said there “were no videos taken by the United State Government.”
That differs significantly from a declaration Dibee, formerly associated with the Earth and Animal Liberation Fronts, filed in federal court last week stating that a representative with the U.S. government “was videotaping the rendition using a small silver Sony digital camera from the moment” they arrived.
The FBI declined to comment on the court filings, citing the open federal case. A spokesperson for Oregon’s U.S. Attorney’s Office, which is prosecuting Dibee, also declined to comment. Continue reading “USA: Update on Joseph Dibee’s situation”

We recently learned that you qualified for a Quebec government subsidy in the amount of $580,000 for your contribution to fighting climate change. Congratulations! We thought that we should do our part as well. So we decided to lighten the load of your heavy machinery by grilling up two of your expensive toys. On the night of August 25th – 26th, we set fire to a mechanical digger and a bulldozer under the sleepy eyes of the night watchman.
It’s time for you to leave the poplar trees and the fish alone. Take a bit of time for yourself, at the chalet or by the ocean. Maybe a stroll through the forest will make you realize that there is no semblance of life in your concrete.
Evidently, the tireless workhorse that you are is not greatly affected by the loss of a couple machines. We see that the work is carrying on regardless. You are making a mistake. Construction must stop immediately, and we will put ourselves to this task tooth and nail, whatever it takes. May the invitation be heard for a hot fall!
See you again very soon.
Responding to the call from comrades in Atlanta for an 8/18 day of action in solidarity with the struggle to defend the Atlanta forest; vandals broke into the office complex housing Corporation Service Company’s (CSC) regional office in Roseville, a suburb of Minneapolis. After smashing the office door and throwing cans of paint inside, a message was left sprayed across the front: HANDS OFF THE ATLANTA FOREST.
Demands are being made for CSC to drop their client, Blackhall Studios. Blackhall Studios would like to level the South Atlanta Forest to build the country’s largest soundstage and an airport, creating unprecedented levels of gentrification in the city.
Atlanta police plan to level 300 acres and create a sprawling tactical training compound featuring a mock city, with which they’ll develop the ability of police departments around the country to brutalize those practicing resistance.
Rebels in Minneapolis know what it means to inhabit a rapidly gentrifying city, and know what it means to have cutting edge police repression deployed against us. We also know what it means to fight back. Atlanta, we love you.

GATHERING AGAINST SPECIAL SURVEILLANCE
From the struggles against the devastation and plundering of the earth to the struggles against borders that divide people and split up the world, from the antimilitarist struggle against the massacres of war and arms trafficking to the struggle of those who fight against work exploitation… The enemy is always the same: power, neo-liberal domination, the capitalist system that grabs everything for the privileges of the few to the detriment of the many.
For power those who rebel become dangerous individuals to be monitored. Repression transforms affinity between people into terrorist cells and subversive associations. Our response to these attacks is self-organization and carrying on the struggle in spite of the repression.
TUESDAY 15TH JUNE AT 6:30PM – START OFF
