Animal Rights Activists Persecuted by Furriers

by anima naturalis Wednesday, Jan. 26, 2005 at 4:49 AM

Animal rights activists are being presecuted by furriers in Argentina. [Solidarity needed]

When repression begins, solidarity must arise... We just received this letter and decided to spread the word.

January 20, 2005, 00:33 hrs.


With the end of looking protection from human rights organizations and defenders of animals I address you to let you know about the events that have been taking place in Buenos Aires, Capital Federal, Republic of Argentina.

Some months ago, I was invited to a public demonstration in favor of the life of thousands of chinchillas that die by electrocution so their fur can be sold for the confection of coats. More than 140 animals are used for the making of a single coat that is sold for US 000.

We, a group of vegans, had a demonstration in front of a centric hotel of our Capital and in front of Santa Isabel church where some "seminaries" of diffusion of such activity were taking place. More than twenty people went to the place with signs that asked to stop animal suffering and we stayed there, rising our signs, in absolute order. Mr. Hector Aleandri, owner of El Dorado S.R.L., the most important chinchilla slaughterhouse of the country and main fur exporter was inside Santa Isabel church. He assaulted demonstrators and spitted at me in front of many people. We were photographed and after some time, in another demonstration we had to spread vegetarianism I was delayed in the street along with a partner and some policemen that were guided by Hector Aleandri. Alleging a penal case against us, our documents were detained and since that moment, the furrier had access to my personal and my partner's data. After this, we started receiving telephone calls and "police visits" in our homes alerting us about penal cases filed against us. We also found messages of furriers in the Internet. Some days ago I received at home a letter-document in which Mr. Alejandri accuses me of leading a group of dangerous vegans, attempt against his personal wealth and property, and he makes us responsible of any arson or attempt that could happen in any furrier, butcher store, etc.

I have never been part of any act of which the furrier accuses me, I've just been part of the ones described in the above text. Alejandri has no proves against me.

I am legal assessor and executive director of Anima Naturalis Argentina and I am sending this communique to let you know what is going on in case anything happens to me and based on the asymmetry of resources between the informant and this group of furriers with a great economic endorsement.

This is part of the document sent from Héctor Aleandri to both my particular address and my work address:

"Without affecting personal actions already started by the injuries and calumnies and also to the property damage etc, etc, whose civil repairs I estimate in the sum of 100,000 dollars, for the fact that such defamation has been acknowledged by millions of people in the spanish-speaking world with great damage for the subscriber, whose good name is widely known in the whole world by his works, books, international seminaries in the USA, Europe, etc etc, and taking into account the grave tragedy occurred in Buenos Aires with the death of almost 200 people and hundreds of grave injured*... I allow myself to ask you and your group of vegans (perfectly individualized... photographed... for acknowledgment of rabbit and other animal breeders, circuses, etc, etc) have you realized how HIGHLY DANGEROUS can Internet websites be... in your case as lawyer registered at the Lawyer Association, mediator, etc, you cannot ignore that your higher education makes you more responsible than the rest of the group... I demand you by this mean to stop the defamation of the subscribed, in the attack to his personal wealth and any act against the law. I remind you that if any irresponsible reader of your websites starts an arson in any furrier, butcher shop, slaughterhouse or any kind of animal breeder, McDonald's restaurant... and any death or grave injure ALL OF YOU would have penal and civil responsability. I urge you to share this document with ALL your group... so you step back at inciting violence and committing violent acts that could have really grave consequences..." Signed: Dr. Héctor Aleandri 4.277.465 and Graciela Galguera DNI: 12.087.429

As you can read, the accusations are really grave.


I have never committed a crime. I am just trying to spread love to all the animals of the creation by demonstrating in public places with posters and flyers. That is all.

* This commentary is related to a discotheque fire in Buenos Aires occurred on December 31, 2004 where at least 175 mostly teens died and 889 were injured. By saying that he is implying she just cares about chinchillas and not people.
