Salto a la pista central de la Expo de Ganader�a 2011

El viernes 22 de julio un grupo de activistas de Acci�n Vegan Argentina saltaron a la pista central de la Exposici�n de Ganader�a, Agricultura e Industria en el predio que la Sociedad Rural tiene en Palermo, ciudad de Buenos Aires, donde se estaba realizando la edici�n 125 de la misma. Esto sucedi� durante una competencia de equinos, donde los activistas se manifestaron en contra de la explotaci�n animal en la industria agropecuaria.

Exhibiendo carteles con leyendas abolicionistas ingresaron a la arena y casi inmediatamente fueron desalojados por personal de seguridad del predio, que les arranc� los carteles y los escolt� hasta las salidas de la pista, aunque no con la suficiente rapidez como para que los espectadores no alcanzaran a leer las consignas impresas que rezaban �LOS ANIMALES NO SON OBJETOS�, �LOS ANIMALES NO SON ESCLAVOS� y �HASTA CUANDO?�, �sta �ltima leyenda acompa�ada por la imagen de una vaca colgada desangr�ndose en el matadero.

El p�blico abuche� y silb� a los activistas, aplaudiendo cuando fueron desalojados.

AVA'S activists jumped to the track

No obstante muchas personas se acercaron a preguntar de qu� se trataba la acci�n y fueron informados sobre los motivos y tambi�n se les transmitieron conceptos b�sicos de abolicionismo. Otro grupo de activistas permaneci� en la entrada principal repartiendo volantes y hablando con la gente que ingresaba y sal�a de la exposici�n.

On Friday, the 22nd of July a group of activists of Action Vegan Argentina jumped to the central track of the Exhibition of Cattle, Agriculture and Industry in the property that the Rural Society has in Palermo, city of Buenos Aires, where 125 of the same one realized the edition.

This happened during a competition of equine, where the activists demonstrated against the animal development in the agricultural industry. Exhibiting cartels with abolitionists legends they entered to the sand and almost immediately they were evicted by safety personnel of the property, which quit the cartels and escorted them up to the exits of the track, although not with the sufficient rapidity as so that the spectators were not managing to read the printed slogans that were praying � THE ANIMALS ARE NOT OBJECTS �, � THE ANIMALS ARE NOT SLAVES � and � TILL WHEN? �, the latter legend accompanied by the image of a hanging cow being drained in the slaughterhouse.

The public booed and whistled the activists, applauding when they were evicted.

Nevertheless many persons approached to ask about what the action was talking each other and they were informed about the motives and also basic concepts of abolitionism were transmitted. Another group of activists remained in the principal entry distributing frills and speaking with the people who was entering and was going out of the exhibition.
