HOUSE OF SCREAMS: Vegan activists in supermarket’s meat section playing sounds of animals being slaughtered

Cooper Ehlers' sign read 'This is what they don't want you to hear', and urged people to watch Dominion, a documentary that investigated the dark side of animal agriculture.

KYLIE STEVENS: ‘Supermarket shoppers have been confronted with the chilling sound of animals being slaughtered during an protest against eating meat. Cooper Ehlers and a friend protested in front of the meat section of Woolworths Booragoon in Perth’s south… Photos show the pair holding signs as they played the sounds of animals in slaughterhouses in a desperate attempt to make shoppers aware of the plight facing farmed creatures. ‘This is what they don’t want you to hear,’ Mr Ehlers’ sign read… His unnamed friend held a sign with the words ‘Stop the silence hear the violence.’ Mr Ehlers’ sign also urged people to watch Dominion, a documentary that uses hidden cameras and drones to “investigate the dark side of animal agriculture”…

He posted the protest photos on the Perth Vegans Facebook page, urging those interested in getting involved in animal rights activism to reach out. Mr Ehlers’ post sparked a divisive reaction on the Facebook page.’I understand you want this to stop, but disrupting everyone else’s lives while they are buying food for their families is s**t. Don’t force your views and opinions onto everyone else that doesn’t share the same view,’ one person commented…

Some people showed their support for the protester’s actions. ‘The only people who become aggressive at those who ask for the killings to stop are just in denial, these are the ones who know it’s wrong and don’t want to be faced with the reality of their choice. Keep up the good work. It takes a hell of a lot of guts to stand up like you are,’ one person wrote…

The latest protest comes just weeks after fellow Western Australian vegan animal activist Tash Peterson stormed into Coles and Woolworths on Christmas Eve calling on the supermarket giants to reveal where their meat ‘really comes from’. Wearing a blood-soaked apron and face mask, Ms Peterson was armed with a fake butchered pig’s head and a stereo blasting cow and pig noises’.  SOURCE…
