Animal rights radicals choose Netherlands as base

14th March 2009, Comments 0 comments

A British undercover agent who spent years infiltrating the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) says the Netherlands is now the international centre for radical animal rights activists.

THE NETHERLANDS - In Great Britain, the agent's undercover activities led to the arrest and imprisonment of the ALF's core members and, indirectly, to a tightening of the legislation against such activism.

That, says the agent, is the reason why organisations such as the ALF have now moved to the Netherlands.

The agent said that animal rights campaigns are coordinated in the Netherlands and carried out all over Europe.

Particular targets are laboratories that carry out animal testing and the companies that do business with them.
