Animal rights activists promoting ‘vegan lifestyle’ storm pig farm to stage sit-down protest

JOEY CARBSTRONG: We are trying to bring what happens in here into the light. We want to advocate for a plant-based lifestyle, a vegan lifestyle so that these places don't exist and animals are free.

BRYONY JEWELL: ‘Around 200 activists from all over the country have stormed a pig farm as part of a protest against the factory farming industry in the UK. Activist group Meat The Victims UK arrived at Sandilands Pigs near Laughterton, Lincoln, in their droves at around 11am and have been at the farm all day. The group say that they want to ‘expose the reality of factory farming’ to the public and 100 activists are inside a farrowing house interacting with pigs. Videos from the scene show the activists wearing white suits and masks inside one of the huts, while another 100 people are outside with signs and posters.

Activist Chris Hines told MailOnline that the group wants to make the pig farming industry ‘more transparent’ and let the public know the truth behind their meat. He said: “The mothers are in farrowing crates. The space inside a crate is enough for them to take a few steps and they can stand up and sit down, they can’t turn around. They will be in there for about six to eight weeks while they let the pigs suckle. The idea behind them being in this is so they don’t crush the piglets. ‘They only have a few inches to move around – if these were dogs there would be outrage”… Joey Carbstrong said: ‘The message is that these places operate in secrecy, the public are funding something and they have no idea what goes on in there. “We are trying to bring what happens in here into the light. We want to advocate for a plant based lifestyle, a vegan lifestyle so that these places don’t exist and animals are free”.’  SOURCE…
