San Francisco’s Whole Foods animal rights protest ends with 37 arrested

DxE activists also handcuffed themselves together at Amazon's offices in San Francisco. The protests came after the group uncovered instances of cruel conditions at farms that supply to Amazon and Whole Foods.

MICHAEL BARTIROMO: ‘Thirty-seven protesters with Direct Action Everywhere (DxE) were reportedly arrested amid a protest outside — and on top of — a Whole Foods market in San Francisco on Monday… A live stream of the incident was broadcast on the group’s Facebook page, captioned with the message, “Activists are chaining their necks to the doors of Whole Foods and locking down Amazon, asking Jeff Bezos to support the #RightToRescue animals from factory farms”…

The protest, which was staged by animal-rights activists with Direct Action Everywhere, was demonstrating against what the group alleges to be “criminal animal abuse” by farms that supply Amazon, the parent company of Whole Foods. According to a press release shared by Direct Action Everywhere (DxE), the protest was also attempting to raise awareness and support for Rose’s Law, a proposed animal bill of rights supported by animal-rights organizations…

During DxE’s demonstration, activists chained themselves together in front of the store’s Noe Valley location, with some even “supergluing” themselves to each other, according to DxE. Social media posts from outside the store also show the group had erected a large image of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ head on the roof of the store, with a sign over it reading, “I profit from criminal animal abuse”…

DxE’s protests came after the group claims to have uncovered alleged instances of “cruel conditions” at farms that supply to Amazon and Whole Foods. In its press release, issued Monday afternoon, DxE also urged Jeff Bezos to “disavow the prosecution of six peaceful activists” who were previously arrested on felony charges for trying to break animals out of some of the farms. Simultaneously, during Monday’s protests, activists with the group were also said to have handcuffed themselves together at Amazon’s offices in San Francisco’. SOURCE…
