Vegan activists storm McDonald’s smeared with fake blood and wearing pig and chicken masks

Vegan activists storm McDonald’s smeared with fake blood and wearing pig and chicken masks

How far will protesters go to support the rights of animals? Well to be totally animal free you don’t eat eggs. Or cheese. Or mayonnaise. Or honey. Or whey. Or gelatin. Or anything that comes from or includes an animal. Nor use any clothing, accessory or object made from an animal. No leather, no wool, no pearls, no ivory-keyed pianos. So.. who of you are all in?

A woman was arrested after a group of vegans wearing pig masks and spraying fake blood stormed a branch of McDonald’s.

The gang of more than 20 animal rights campaigners marched into a branch of the burger chain in Brighton on Friday evening spraying fake blood on the floors.

Diners looked on as they chanted and held up signs saying: ‘Dairy is Scary’ and ‘Until Every Animal is Free’ before staging a sit-in.

Officers from Sussex Police arrived at the branch and arrested the masked woman before carrying her from the restaurant and into a waiting police van.

The incident was the latest in a wave of attacks by the same organisation, Direct Action Everywhere (DxE) who have staged protests in Waitrose, Jamie Oliver’s restaurant and the Touro steakhouse.

On their Facebook page the group wrote: ‘The fake blood I spilt is nothing compared to the real blood McDonald’s has spilt.’

They say: ‘Direct Action Everywhere is an international animal rights network dedicated to making animal liberation happen in our lifetime by using non-violent direct action to put the issue of animal rights on the table.

‘This is the Brighton chapter of DxE and we aim to empower activists to take strong and confident action wherever animals are being enslaved, killed or exploited, and create a world where animal liberation is a reality.’

‘You’re all c****.’

But another user, Kai Fenn, defended the group’s action by saying: ‘There were literally babies murdered for those hamburgers. Are you oblivious?’

The group posted a picture of the protest on Twitter and wrote: ‘We had our first arrest tonight. 

‘We will do what ever it takes to STOP the needless, systematic abuse of animals.’

This sparked a reaction from one user who said: ‘What did this achieve, other than wasting police resources?’ 

Last month the group stormed a branch of Greggs in Brighton to protest the sale of meat despite the bakery boasting of huge sales of their vegan sausage rolls.

Sales at Greggs climbed to an all time high earlier this year after the company announced the meat-free product. 

A spokesman for McDonald’s said: ‘We can confirm an incident took place in our London Road restaurant last night. 

‘Due to the mess and damage caused, the restaurant was closed from 7:30pm whilst the team worked hard to return the restaurant to normal and we reopened at 5am today. 

‘We are supporting the police with their ongoing investigation and apologise to any customers adversely impacted by this incident.’

    Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re
    using? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
