It is unfortunate that even when writing about misinformation generally believed about PETA, NUVO promotes misinformation about ALF (Dispatch, “Eat Non-Violently,” Nov. 2-9). It is my understanding that ALF does not and has not used “poisoning” as one of their tactics (though there are organizations that may). The basic principles of the ALF state: “But neither man nor mouse do we hurt. If you fancy that kind of thing, call yourself something else, but don’t come around here.” (Free the Animals: The Amazing True Story of the Animal Liberation Front, by Ingrid Newkirk). There are animal liberation organizations that may use more direct and violent tactics against humans, but they do not represent ALF.
