The Rescue Service Action 4

In the early morning of December 14, 2000, the animal rights collective The Rescue Service Action Group Happy Holidays for the Hens liberated six hens from a battery farm in Halland, Sweden. The group broke into a hen farm outside Frillesås (Kungsbacka County) and brought six of the hens to a new home where they will be able to live the rest of their lives in loving care.

The action was performed as an open, non-violent, civil disobedience action. The activists left a letter and a box of chocolates for the owner of the hen farm.

We want to give the hens an opportunity to some time feel the earth under their feet, enjoy the sunlight and frolic in the sand out in the open. These animals, who have the capacity to feel both pain and anxiety, are in the egg production facilities forced to live their lives up until slaughter on a space as small as a sheet of A4 paper.
Karna Rusek

The battery farm situation today is irreconcilable with the Swedish Animal Protection Act, which states that animals shall be protected from unnecessary harm, §2, as well as be given the possibility to act according to their natural behaviour, §4.

We don’t consider the action a crime, rather an enforcement of the Animal Protection Act. It is our duty as compassionate and responsible citizens to voice our opinion and take action.
