ALIX: This is the cost of eating animal products, you are putting animals through a life of misery. They will have their throats cut so consumers can eat bacon and pork and ham.
CANDACE SUTTON: ‘Self proclaimed “vegan soldier” Alix Livingstone has led another animal house invasion, storming a piggery in Melbourne with her “army” of activists who chained themselves in before their arrest. “Alix the Vegan” is just 23 years old but a veteran of trespass of chook sheds, beef farms, and lamb sales all in the name of defending animals. She has sobbed at slaughterhouses and inside batteries, and at one of the nationwide vegan protests in Melbourne to promote the anti-animal cruelty documentary, Dominion.
Livingstone and her troupe of vegan protesters broke into the Australian Food Group piggery at Laverton in western Melbourne about 3am on Monday armed with chains and pipe. The male and female activists chained themselves to pig pens and sties while Alix roamed free to film herself and the protest as piggery workers and then police moved in. Alix asked for a pig to take away with them but was denied.
“They refused to let us save a life today which means that when we leave every single one of these pigs will be lowered into a gas chamber,” she says into the camera during the hour-plus long video (featured above). “They will have their throats cut so consumers can eat bacon and pork and ham. “This is the cost of eating animal products, you are putting animals through a life of misery”…
Livingstone’s Instagram page reads: “Animal Liberation Activist. Respect existence or expect resistance. “You don’t know what you live for, until you know what you would die for.” In another video, she screams through her megaphone: “What humans do to animals for consumption is inexcusable. “Everything they have is taken from them, their uniqueness, their individuality. “All the things that make them who they are is stolen away, turned into bottle of milk, blocks of cheese, pieces of meat. For no more than a five minute meal.”
Livingstone has an online fundraising page on patreon.com under her Alix the Vegan moniker to raise money for her activism. It reads: “My mission is to help bring the truth to consumers of the abhorrent cruelty towards animals that is ingrained throughout our society in the way humans eat, clothe and entertain. “In 2019 I would like to organise more actions to raise awareness about the plight of animals and bring public attention to these issues”.’ SOURCE…
