Val Smith | 22.02.2007 19:42 | Animal Liberation
The Animal Liberation Front (ALF) has been active throughout the UK, since the 1980s, and operates globally today. Individuals campaigning for animal rights have liberated thousands of animals, and have caused millions of pounds worth of damage to those who profit through their suffering. Everything But the Incendiary is a celebration of all these individuals. Through different events, installations and information this exhibition will provide people with a space to discuss issues connected with animal rights, share skills, and promote direct action in the endles struggle to help those who are defenceless in the face of corporate greed, and in the name of so-called 'science'.

EVERYTHING BUT THE INCENDIARY
(A History of the Animal Liberation Front)
19/02/07-14/03/07, The Basement, Manchester
Everything But the Incendiary focuses on how the direct action movement in the UK (especially the ALF) has fought to further the rights of animals, and liberate those who are suffering at the hands of individuals and corporations. The exhibition aims to excite and incite, to champion work already done, but also highlight how far we have to go.
Everything But the Incendiary celebrates those who have worked in this endless struggle, and aims to raise awareness about ongoing problems and issues connected with animal rights, veganism, and corporate control.
Everything But the Incendiary will include a range of media and will look at the compelling history of the movement, it's successes, and lessons learnt. It will also provide a contemporary context and information by including information on current campaigns, prisoners, events and issues. The exhibition and events will have a practical focus and also draw attention to more theoretical and philosophical aspect of animal rights.
Through different events, resources and art works we aim to promote animal rights, encourage people to take action and provide people with the focus and information required to help further the animal liberation movement.
