***************************************************************************

I wish to thank everyone in Italy for inviting me to speak again this year, and for being such gracious hosts, fantastic activists. and amazing people. There are dozens, perhaps over a hundred of people who made this tour possible and joyful. I cannot possibly name them all. I do however, wish to offer a very special thank you to:

Kostia Troinia and Barbara Balsamo for inviting me and being the principal organizers of my talks in Rome. You are the best!

Marcos Aragao for your excellent photos.

VeggieChannel.com for your tremendous effort in interviewing me, taping my lectures in Turin, Rome, and Latina, and for having the courage to post my talks on your channel.

The kind women at Asinus Novus for showing enough interest in my work to summarize my talks and interview me; it was a pleasure, thank you.

Per Animalia Veritas; thank you for your activism, support, and bold defense of militant direct action!

The ReWild Cruelty Free Club; you guys rock and make the best vegan food!

Paolo Trono and his club, Vegan Città di Latina (a former abattoir transformed into a space for music, lectures, and culture!) in which I gave my final speech in the Rome area before moving north to Brescia; thank you for your kindness, the great audience, and the great free food and beer!

Piercarlo Paderno for inviting and hosting me in Brescia. You are a great new friend and did amazing work to help liberate the Greenhill dogs.

The Occupy Greenhill movement (see here and here) for their bold act of liberation that will go down in history as one of the most important actions of this century. In their post-Greenhill reorganization, the group is now called Animal Amnesty, and will keep opening chained fences and locked doors!

Occupy Greenhill Anti-Vivisection Conference

Brescia, Italy, Friday September 7, 2012

STEVE BEST, LEADER DEL MOVIMENTO ANTISPECISTA, A BRESCIA

I was highly honored to give this talk on Friday, September 7, at the Hall of the Labour Buozzi of Brescia, in northern Italy. This talk, entitled “Fighting the Global Vivisection-Industrial Complex Through Militant Direct Action,” was organized by the Occupy Green Hill Movement, which led the amazing daylight open rescue of hundreds of puppies targeted for vivisection and certain death at the Green Hill compound, just a short drive from Brescia.

This was the first conference since the bold beagle liberations, and I expect Italy to catch fire and become a flashpoint of animal liberation in the coming years. was organized by The conference was introduced with an update on the current situation of Green Hill, the current trial process, and a brief overview of how the struggle movements evolved and culminated in stunning success that typically only militant direct action can bring. I then followed with this sharp critique of the global vivisection industrial complex and a call to escalate direct action liberations throughout Italy.
