We watched a video from the Animal Liberation Front. In that video the people in the organization lamented on being arrested and branded as terrorists. The dictionary definition of terrorism is "the systematic use of violent or destructive acts used by a groups in order to intimidate a population into granting their demands." The problem with their whining is that THEY ARE terrorists. The ALF has firebombed research facilities, destroyed livelihoods, and harrassed university professors to the point of leaving dirty bombs and mailing booby trapped letters with razor blades to their homes. This includes the majority of UC's, including UCSC. They can argue that they are saving animals, but don't deny that the Animal Liberation Front is a domestic terrorist group.
