Here is what the critics have to say:
Agenda November/December 1998 pg. 39
from start to finish, this inaugural issue is jam-packed with
footage from the front lines of various protests and direct actions
occurring around the country from 1996 through early 1998.......The
gripping video also offers some humor, as shown by a segment depicting
an Animal Liberation Front activist going about his daily routine
wearing a ski mask........The video's quality is especially good
given that the footage was shot and submitted by activists themselves.
A fast-paced, original soundtrack adds to the intensity of a truly
inspiring documentary of our times."
Issue #9 pg. 30
Free video magazine will knock you on your ass! This is definitely
the video to get your hands on! Produced by the Eugene Animal
Defense League, Breaking Free is a fast paced, action packed documentary
on liberation movements - including Earth First! and animal rights
actions from all across the country. See eyewitness footage from
all of the recent protests you've heard so much about....
Free also gives us an idea of just what lengths police will go
to in an attempt to subdue activists and protect corporate interests.
Macings, beatings and submission holds - Breaking Free has it
all. As the cops dish it out, activists continue to show their
resolve by constantly hitting animal and Earth abusing industries
where it hurts. Breaking Free Video Magazine not only inspires
new activists, but encourages older activists to keep fighting
by showing us that we're not in this alone!"
