UC Berkeley vivisector's home vandalized

Despite AB 2296, which may or may not have scared off aboveground activists at the ten-campus UC system, this action as well as the upsurge of recent actions at UCLA make it clear that underground activists has not been stopped by new laws.
It appears that anonymous underground activists vandalized the home of UC Berkeley vivisector Frederic Theunissen last week (November 5 to be exact.) Theunissen tortures and kills captive birds in his frivolous experiments at the University of California-Berkeley campus.

Despite AB 2296, which may or may not have scared off aboveground activists in the ten-campus UC system, this action as well as the upsurge of actions at UCLA make it clear that the underground has not been stopped by new laws.

From UCB's police logs detailing the incident ( http://police.berkeley.edu/bulletins):

7:21 AM - T.F. (MW-44-F) victim of vandalism via red paint to the front door/wall of his house, Browning St. Under investigation.

Communique from the ALF Press Office website for this action:

"Received anonymously

On November 5 around 7am, UC Berkeley bird murderer Frederic Theunissen was paid a visit at his home. Red paint was thrown all over the door, walls, and windows. His front door locks were superglued.

We are aware that Theunissen has been targeted with underground direct action in the past. The attacks on him and UC-Berkeley's true terrorists will continue until the murder of innocents ends.

Vengeance for the dead.
Freedom for the enslaved,
