(FI) Animal rights activists carry dead pigs in downtown Helsinki protest
The Oikeutta El�imille ("Justice for Animals") organisation staged a protest on Wednesday afternoon, displaying carcasses of piglets at The Three Smiths' statue in downtown Helsinki.
"These piglets less than four weeks of age weigh a couple of kilos. They were dumped by a pig farm after they had died", reported Anne Nieminen, the information officer of the organisation.
"We planned to hold a protest before Christmas, as we wanted to remind people of the fact that behind every ham on the table there is a pig that has been suffering in a piggery and died as a result of that", she said.
