Rooftop Protest at Melbourne Egg Laying Farm on May
4, International Respect for Chickens Day
organized a huge rooftop protest at an egg laying farm in Melbourne
[Australia] on May 4, International Respect for Chickens Day! We had 22
people involved and 16 on the roof of the factory farm for 12 hours and
15 of us were arrested. We all face court for trespass on June 15 (We
have good pro bono legal help).
This is a link to our fb photo
album about the action.
We got so much media from this event. Even two TV stations flew their
helicopters overhead and ran the footage on the news that night and it was
reported in Japan and Europe. It gets so frustrating and depressing at times
to see and know there are now more animals than ever before being
tormented and abused, but grassroots groups are also sprouting up
everywhere and there is no doubt the time will come when human greed and
selfishness collapse and things improve for animals. -- Patty Mark,
